10/19/13 Boot Camp

I know I’m behind on my blogging.  I know I am behind on everything but right now I’m in a crisis.

I hurt Mom.  I mean, other than the normal bruises all over her legs from me jumping on her.  I hurt her bad.  I took off running and jumped on her and she tried to block and avoid and I think she sprained her wrist.  Mom says that the way I am going, we won’t be able to have anybody over for the “holidays” or any visitors, because she can’t trust me.

Mom says my behavior in the house is past ridiculous.  She says I listen to commands perfectly fine – when I want to.  I just don’t want to in the house!  Mom says that the only way she is going to keep me is if I go to Boot Camp, because the other schooling is not working with my strong-headed personality.  Mom says she loves me, but I can’t be the ruler of the roost and I can’t go around hurting people.

Boot Camp is expen$ive.  Dad is thinking about it.  This may be the end of the road for me.

Sadly, Maggie

    Oh dear, what does being at the end of the road mean? That sounds scary 😦
    I had major problems with the real Jules, who was a handful at times. She had so much energy she was exhausting her first few years.
    My vet recommended I feed her less – so as not to fuel the overactiveness, and let her run as much as possible. An hour at an off-leash park with a good running pal as early in the day as possible may do the trick and take the edge off the frenzy.
    You can also ask the vet about changing her diet. Like kids on too many sweets, dogs can get hyped by food too.
    Keep us posted. I’m very fond of you Maggie and need you to be a good girl and settle down for your Mom

      Dear FairyDogMother,

      Mom says: We have taken Mags to the vet numerous times for allergies, ear infections, etc. We have changed her food, hired a dog walker for when we are busy, enrolled her in Obedience School. For the most part, she is a great and lovable dog. We don’t want to give up on her, but her wild behavior in the house is unacceptable. Maggie needs to remember that she is the dog. We are hoping this intensive Boot Camp will help. Thank you for your wonderful suggestions. Will keep you posted. Please keep us in mind and send us your strength & good wishes. Your friend, Elizabeth
