Re: That dog again
In another thread, I commented on Jack and Jill wearing PJs when walking their dog. A little Pug. It wasn't very well behaved and not obedient. It would run around Max biting his tail and just generally aggravating him. Or trying to. Max is Max.
More than once they, Jack an Jill, were on their way home but little pug wasn't having it. So, I got Max to walk him to their door. The little fellow hung in there with his big buddy.
We have since moved and now we walk with little Ozzie who sometimes gets into it with other dogs. Max just steps between them like a referee in a boxing match. Problem resolved.
I can't explain how or why Max has this lovely temperament when we meet and greet other dogs and people when we are out and about. No barking, no growling and just ambles along beside me, no lead. Sees a cat and tell him to leave it. He does.
A lovely fellow but not without his foibles.
He has taken to trying to chase vehicles, particularly vans.
At home he barks loudly
when he wants food or attention. He slaps the back door when he wants out. And again when he wants in.
And pats my bed when he wants me up in the morning. But then he lies down by the shower when I'm in, then flops down on the bedroom floor while I get my kit on.
Waits by my desk while I have my morning cuppa. Sits down by the front door to get his lead on. Then we are off for the morning trip.
