    I've been known to stop bad behavior by letting them think they're getting way with something. I had a Corgi mix that I resorted to handling old capacitors so my cent would be on them then charging them with a battery. I actually heard one snap when she licked it. About three times and she quit gnawing. A friends dog would steal food off the table when you weren't looking. I eased a habanero pepper to the side and he slurped it down in one gulp. A bit of a clean up afterward but he never snuck food around me again.

    We're OK, getting better Bud, thanks. Still a shock that our healthy 2 1/2 year old is gone. Learn to live with it, I guess.
    I had a Weimaraner that would sit right next to me when I ate. She would stare at me till I looked at her, then she would look away. I figured I was going to fix that. I was eating hot peppers and gave her one. She chewed it up, licked her chops for a minute, then put her paw on my leg and started clawing at me. She liked it and wanted more! Guess that backfired...
    I'll pass that message on Ryan. I'm sure she'll know what it means!
    Got some "puppy proofing to do. Been a while, so I'm sure it will be a learn as you go process, as it seems they all get interested in different things. 20180624_132524.jpg

    Great looking dog! You'll have lots of fun. Just remember that 99% of what they tear up is replaceable . . . and don't bother replacing it for three to five years.

    Give me a while, I'm sure I'll have a pretty good list for you!

    Thanks Billy. We didn't even get to replace what Mia tore up. She passed about 3 weeks ago and she was only 2 1/2 years old. Last 4 dogs have been Labs. That's a pretty darn accurate time line (3-5 years) for them.

    Thanks, we think she was. Just getting over the "terrible two's" too. Just turning the corner and becoming a great companion.

    Sometimes the best are taken before their time. They always live on when you remember them.
