Update on the "The Young and the Restless Canines"

Well...it's now been a couple weeks with the two dogs, Mockey and Jack. I'm happy to report that they still just kind of, sort of, a little bit, maybe are tolerating each other. It does still get a little out of control when Jack thinks he needs to play with the OLD unwilling Mockey...we are always refereeing them. We also have had a couple recent "accidents" from our OLDER dog...now, is that rebellion or what? Then this morning I saw that Jack pooped on the deck..What's with that (Lazy doggy)didn't want to venture out in the rain I guess. One thing I tried is Last night I found that putting Jack in "Time Out" actually works...the kids just laugh at me, but when he is naughty, I make him "Sit and Stay" in a certain corner until he is excused to leave...(I even set the timer one time hahahha..that was a little over the edge I will admit) He did very well with the time out thing..we will see how it works today....they are funny right now, they keep following each other around smelling..you know where...on each other...it's so funny, they keep doing this and you can tell it irritates the one getting smelled...my question is, why do they have to keep this practice up...does the smell change? I would think one time would be enough already...anyway, let's say "Still a work in progress" at our house...will keep you posted!!!!

You are brave to have two dogs at your house, but I bet Max loves it! That's awesome, by the way, about Kristi's graduation! Time flies, huh?

Such a good question! Seriously...why do they ALWAYS have to smell each other? If you get the answer, let me know. I'm still lovin' the young and the restless title. You're hilarious.

Oh timeouts totally work. We make Dixie go to her "kennel" (which is actually just her bed) when she is naughty. It works, we just have to remember to tell her it's ok, eventually! :)
