Today, there is no War Paint Wednesday post just as there was no post Tuesday. Currently, I am unable to post anything as my free time is being consumed by our dog. You may know of him, The Colonel Hoof Hearted. He is also stubborn hearted.
The Colonel is pad trained. We did this because of our schedules. I travel and The Mister has work and school, so The Colonel is without someone sometimes from 9 a.m. till 10 p.m. Therefore, pad training was our answer. However, he’s full grown now and needs more space. So, we did some research, purchased supplies and set out on litter training.
In essence, this should be easy. It is not. He doesn’t understand it’s purpose, shown by two nights in a row he has tried eating it. We’ve tried a pad ontop of the litter- nothing. We sit him in it and singsong “Go pee”- he’s finally not leaping out of it. It has come to us stalking him and hoping he may happen to have to relieve himself. Problem is, The Colonel is bashful.
This has always been the case. He doesn’t do his business in front of people. If leashed he will but the whole time he looks embarassed. I’m considering leashing him within our home. We’ve reached a new low this evening.
So, we are exhausted. I type this now on my phone. Soon posts will return to normal and hopefully my life will as well.
