Hey hey hey everybody!!! It’s Wojtus here! I’m here to tell you all about the stuff I have learned in the past few days. My enforcer is introducing me to ALL kinds of new things. I call her MY enforcer – because although SHE thinks she is the one to enforce the rules around here, I’M the one who owns her. She works for me. I want to be clear about that.
So what have I learned so far? First off I learned that It’s easy to be unfriended if you continually attack others with your sharp teeth. Who knew? The coyote finally told me he liked the hair on his ears and face, and he didn’t like puncture wounds. He avoided me for a day and the grump was already avoiding me – so for like a day I had no canine friends. BUT – I’m a quick learner – so now I watch how hard I bite – so the coyote and I are all good again. UNLESS….. I’m in a frenzy/zoomie stage. That’s when something overpowers me – and I have no control! It’s like I’m possessed! I run, jump, bite, and off I go. Here’s a couple of shots of me just as I’m becoming possessed. You don’t see the last shot because instead of running past the camera- I went right at my enforcers ankles. Score!
My enforcer did something yesterday that scared the fuzz out of me. She pulled out this big machine, plugged it in the wall and turned it on. Holy heck. I took off for the front hall. The other two guys didn’t seem all that concerned. The grump said we didn’t see that machine since I got here – because my enforcer was in quarantine- so nobody could come and visit and see the dust balls flying around the house. Anyway, my enforcer saw me peeking out from the closet – but really didn’t make a big deal about it. She finished using the machine and then left it on while she went in the kitchen with the other guys to get us some treats. Of course I can’t resist treats so I had to run right past the machine to get to the other guys. Phew. Then, she kept stepping closer and closer to the machine while giving all of us treats- and of course the other guys kept going toward it, so I did too. I was a little tentative, but when I saw that those guys were ok, I went over too. My enforcer said that’s one of the BIG advantages to having multiple dogs. We can train each other! Plus my enforcer kind of knows what to do with puppies – and I’m learning this isn’t her first obedience match. She’s a clever one – so I do need to keep an eye on her so she doesn’t forget who is in charge.
I have also learned that despite warnings from the grump, brushing really isn’t bad at all. You lie down, get a couple of brushes and you get treats. What’s so hard about that? I even let my enforcer clip my nails!
Today she is officially OUT OF QUARANTINE!! So that means I am too!!!! She said something about maybe going to the Pet store for more treats. Sounds like Doggie Disney – so count me in. But we’ll see. So many new places to see and explore. It’s a whole new world out there – and I can’t WAIT to see it!!
Have a good one. Peace and paws up. Stay safe!
