  1. We had my SIL's 2 dogs staying with us for a week, and they both went home last night. Cheza seemed okay last night, but this morning she is quite upset. She went and tried to wake them up this morning, but realized the crates were gone, and so were her friends. She has been looking for them, whining and seriously giving me the stink eye. I hope she gets over it quickly. Salem on the other hand is thrilled all of those loud girls are out of his house. I think Cheza might need another bc in the house to play with.
  2. We got back 2 weeks ago, but I just got the pictures off my camera. The pictures are mostly from Acadia National Park.
  3. I don't think so Bailey Were tired Cheza!! Play? Salem and Cheza Playing Cheza and Bailey Playing Cheza and Zoey Playing Everyone together
  4. We have been watching my SIL's dogs Bailey and Zoey since Monday. Cheza is having the time of her life! Guess What Salem? My friend's are coming over! YAY! Lets Play!! I'm not so sure about all these girls Mama. Maybe I just need a drink Play With Me!!
  5. It could just be how he is, but I would rule out any mouth pain and take a good look at his teeth. When Cheza was having some teeth trouble she licked a hot more.
  6. Cheza's Momma smiled on command. It was very cute!
  7. I didn't go into great detail. I have corrected her. She has a "leave it" for most things. She has even left a bunny mid-chase if I use the command, so I would say it is pretty good. I have also tried leash corrections, but nothing realy seems to get through to her. She just doesn't listen with the bikes passing. The rattle can is a good idea. Maybe the sound will break through the sound of the bicycle. She will trot beside the bike nicely when I ride, but that is different for her. It's only the speedy riders that turn her on. I will also pick up the control unleashed book very soon! Thanks everyone! I'm glad to have a few new things to try. I hate to feel like I don't have control of my dog on leash. It's embarassing!
  8. Cheza is doing pretty well in her training, but we are having issues with bikes on our walks. Specifically it is fast moving bicycles. We walk a lot on the C&O canal towpath, so this is where we are having the problem. She just loses it when they pass us. She tries to run at them and barks, and she wont pay attention to me. We are having trouble working on this, and I wondered if anyone had any ideas. We had similar problems with her "herding" running children and people, but we solved that one pretty quickly with the help of some friends. We basically ran and when she started doing circles we stopped said calm, and when she obeyed we clicked and treated. We now have it so if we want her to not run she wont or she is allowed to run with us, but not do circles. We tried the same thing with bikes, but she doesn't react when anyone she knows rides by, it is just strangers. It also has to be a fast bike. Slow bikes she is fine with. She just loses contact with me. She doesn't care about treats or anything else. All she cares about is the bike. Does anyone have any ideas for me?
  9. Continued I'm to sexy for my shorts. I got tired of tying the shirt, so I bought her a cheapo childrens shirt from wallmart. So cute! Stop takin' pictures of me mom!!!
  10. Cheza is doing okay after the spay, other then being a crazy nut job. The glue came open once and we had to have her reglued from her bouncing about so much, eeeck!! She is wearing clothing to keep her from biting the wound. She does look awfully cute though, and she really seems to like it. She holds her little arms up for me to put her shirt on. She just knows how cute she is. Home from the hospital laying on my cashmere jacket, lol. We got her the sheep pillow as her get well soon present. Not too too icky. I'm way cuter. Pay attention to me!!! Just ignore my beer case drywall. lol. We had a flood, and have that up until we can redrywall to keep the dogs out of the sump pump. Thats it see how cute I am
  11. Cheza is seriously friendly. She will go into full body wag if she see's anyone at all, and if they pet her they have a friend for life. She is always either crawling on my lap or dh's.
  12. Cheza is home and doing good! Too good actually, she really wants to play. They used disolvable sutures inside and then glue on the outside so she doesn't need to go back to have anything removed. I'm just glad I didn't leave her overnight. The vet normally keeps dogs after a spay, but I argued it since no one is at the vet clinic. She was her normal crazy self last night. I'm glad she didn't wake up in a cage by herself.
  13. Thanks everyone for the good healing vibes. She is at the vet now, and should be waking up after the surgery around 3pm. She was happy as can be walking back with the vet tech. Excited even, lol. Poor baby.
  14. Meet Cheza and Salem Cheza is a cocker spaniel (thats the best one), an aussie, springer spaniel, bc mix. In fact I don't think anyone has ever guessed bc, bc mix but not pure bred bc. Salem is a poodle! (best one), belgian, flat coated retriever, lab. He is a presumed gsd / lab mix. His mom looked to be a purebred gsd, but was a stray. I try to just brush those people off. Some can be kind of annoying. People flat out don't believe that Cheza is a pure bred, because she is too small. She is a puppy anyway, but will probably be a bit petite, not as small as some I've seen though. This one woman was convinced Salem was a pure bred flat coat and didn't believe me that his mom was a gsd. She said it was her breed of choice, lol! He kind of looks like a flat coat, but certainly not a pure bred one.
