When doodles go bad…

Here is the couch which Barney is meant to sleep on if he wants couch time:

As you can see, it’s a good doodle size, with nice cushioning and a cover so the couch itself doesn’t get messed up.

And here is where I found Barney when I arrived home today:

This is the couch that Barney is NEVER allowed on.  Ever.  If he tries to get up, he gets shoved off.  Notice the big stain?  Yes, that it Barney’s wet & dirty spot.

I think we’ve been a bit too lenient with him lately, allowing him far too much attention and run of the house.  My guess is that Barney has decided that he rules the roost…he didn’t listen to me to go outside or sit, which he normally does, so he’s in full rebellion.  I am currently and totally ignoring him right now.  I’m going to have to work on this with my husband as he hates seeing Barney not get the attention Barney wants…we have to work on this as I don’t want two ruined couches in my house.


Dogs suck sometimes

Overall, I do love my dog.  But today, when he pulled me off my feet in order to try to get at a dog and barked like mad at a few others, I hated him again.  Part of the problem is that he goes more nuts when Roy and I try to walk him together.  We just can’t do it.  Because I’m trying to help Roy do this the right way and Roy is impossible to teach.  He takes it in an insulting way, when I’m just trying to get him to do it the right/same way as me.  So we’re not doing this anymore.  Because then I come home and hate both of the men in my life.  I think it’s time to get the trainer back.
