2 posts in a row about my dog.. I must like her or something! I honestly can’t imagine our home without a dog, specifically our little Miss Bandit. Wyatt’s so lucky to have a built in best friend since the day he was born. 📷: @spiritofthehorsephoto Wildrags: @ashleyswildrags code: Taylor10 Boots: @stiefeldboots
Leaving for work is hard these days. The sun is setting earlier and I’m missing out on some prime time with the pup. But we’re finally getting out and about this week in between shifts. It’s going to be one of the best weeks yet. I can feel it.
"No leash, who dis?" proud Millie says. It's #milliemonday🐶 and we tried something new this weekend, as we do every weekend. Donned in hi-vis yellow, we walked some dirt backroads Saturday afternoon. Millie is a superior walker, with little spurts of accelerated energy. "High steppin'" we call it. She's in a seemingly permanent state of happy on our walks, runs, and hikes. After a bit I decided to unclip her leash to see how she'd respond to some elementary recall. I walked with her by my side and called her attention if she went ahead of me, then get down and give praise each time. I made her sit and stay and walk backward away from her. Then get down on my haunches and call her to me. No treats, just praise. She did excellent. She loves to please. Looking to me for her next move, but still enjoying her time out of the shelter. Once we approached an area where geese could be heard, we leashed up again and picked up pace. Little projects thrown in here and there enrich her time out with us. Taking her to places like pet stores to get used to people and different sights only make her a more well rounded candidate for that perfect forever home. She even went to a parade with @griffin_pond_animal_shelter this weekend to strut her stuff! Let's find this saucy lady an adventurous home for the holidays! Keep sharing and supporting her goofy mug!
