Take the house training:  Lucky goes out in the yard and does her “thing“.  I swear to you, Sunshine stands right next to her watching and waiting for her to be done and then does the same thing in the same spot!

Since we now have two canines in the household and I’m limited as to how much walking my various joints can stand to do, we ordered a “dual, non-tangling” leash.  It had just arrived and I made the error of opening up the package in front of the girls.  They both seemed to know it was for them!

Both started jumping up in the air, crying and running for the laundry room where we keep the harnesses.  (I believe these are much safer than just attaching leashes to the collar as there is NO way they can finagle their heads out of their collars)  It was so sad to realize they wanted to try out their new leash that second and I had no plans to do so during the monsoon rains that had begun 15 minutes prior!

Eventually the girls curled up around my feet and desk chair-I’m being ultra-careful not to move even a toe in my shoe so they don’t get hurt.

By morning, rest assured, they woke me up 10 minutes before the 5:40 a.m. alarm and let me know that I’d better take both of them on a walk with my friends.  They did beautifully!  I think it’s safe to say that the 3 of us were very happy with the purchase.  We also bought each one a nylabone.  Both seem to understand that these are their personal items-as they ran off to their treat spots, licked them and then promptly took a nap on them.  Neither has tried to take the other’s bone, yet.

Don’t ever tell me pets don’t understand!  I’m thinking they do a better job of knowing how to listen and behave than many human children!

Love it
