Though you would never suspect from the pictures, but there is one command that continues to elude Mr. B, well actually us training Mr. B, and that is slow or walk. Ever since Miss M broke her toenail off, we have been more conscientious of their indoor behavior.
For some reason, life is too exciting for Mr. B and he always has to jog or run, which is the complete opposite of Miss M. We can tell which pooch is approaching by the pace of their footsteps. Miss M is more of a tap...tap...tap...tap...tap type of pooch, and though you probably couldn't tell from the pictures but Mr. B is more of a taptaptaptaptap type of pooch.
Miss M cannot get to us slow enough and Mr. B cannot get to us fast enough. It is quite annoying when we have to go for a walk and Miss M is taking her own sweet time, sauntering around and enjoying the decor of the house, while Mr. B is running so fast that he has to slide under or jump over our legs.
We have tried without any success to get Mr. B to enjoy his morning walk from the bedroom to the living room in the morning or his evening walk from the living room to the bedroom. Sometimes it seems like life is too short for Mr. B and he has to run everywhere to make sure he enjoys it all and doesn't miss a thing.
Miss M on the other hand thinks living with us has been long enough and she needs to buy time so she doesn't have to be bored by our presence,
Do your pups enjoy life fast or slow?
