Charlie’s Behavior Rehabilitation And Training -Part IV

Charlie to Abby, “Who is that? Got the license plate number? Well, did you?”

Charlie is doing better every day, so much so that I was able to take him out to the deck-no leash or collar-and let him hang out with Abby while I had some work done outside the house.

By the way, at the beginning he didn’t know how to stay in bed while I was in the kitchen doing dishes, or in the living room watching TV, but lately he has been able to fall asleep and has allowed me to do my chores while he snores. Yes, you read it right, allowed me.

Seriously speaking, sometimes we think that we train our dogs, but I am starting to think that they train us. Oh well! You know what? It’s never a dull moment when you share your life with a dog, but I wouldn’t have it any other way. Take care.

Hanging Out On My Deck With My Canine Companions

Bella, Alex, and Dexter (L to R)

Cynthia, the designated photographer in our home, was able to capture this picture with our 3 canine companions.  Well, maybe it was me taking the picture.  I look at it this way: if pictures look amazing, Cynthia took them; if pictures look terrible, then I took them.  You be the judge of that since I am not too sure which one of us took this photo.

Alex is asleep. Bella and Dexter are on guard duty.

Dogs with short hair like Alex, Bella, and Dexter usually love to sun bathe, but please do not leave your dogs unattended.  After they have breakfast, I take them out to the deck so they can enjoy the sun and relax for a couple of minutes.  They go out again in the afternoon for a few minutes, usually shorter than in the morning, since we are usually in the basement which is nice and cool and we all want to warm up a bit.  Please, be very diligent with your dogs during this hot Summer and do not expose them to too much heat.  Have a great week!
