Let’s get this out of the way first. Bad human. We have no fresh pictures since last weekend. Sigh. It is so hard to find good human help these days.
So we were looking at our photos from last weekend and noticed something. First of all, here is a picture of all of the dogs on the picket line:
Now here is a close up of Kiska, all relaxed and polite and well behaved. Notice how her paws are relatively clean and the ground under her paws is not disturbed. Even that wooly coat is fairly clean (a good thing considering how much fun it is to brush).
And now we give you Cheoah. Same idea, except notice how disturbed the ground is. And how muddy the paws are:
You can hide them little girl, but they are still muddy.
And so now the video proof. Notice how everyone is sitting calmly, but you can hear the Cheoah whines before you get to her. But she looks like she is sitting still until the the temper tantrum begins. I do love how the other dogs just ignore her and ignore how she bounces the cable around. She is learning though.
NOTE – Picket lines and tie outs are great tools, but great care must be taken. The Herd all wear limited slip collars on the picket line (they wear break-away collars in the house) and are always under close supervision. Learning to sit patiently on a picket line is part of the training. Cheoah is learning.
