Today...well today sucked.

Today...was a bad day. I'm dog sitting for my neighbours. Who's dog happens to be my dogs best friend so today I went to walk them. My neighbors live right on the water so I took the dogs to the beach, uitending to take pictures while they played well they start running around like normal dogs until the neighbours dog, Jack decides he's going home and my dog of course follows him takes of for his house, into his yard and then out again and starts running around like a maniac in the street....ok...normally they're both great off leash but today...not so much. By the time I got my dog Jack had run into his yard again and under the shed, where a raccoons livi g he KNOWS this he's been in a standoff with this raccoon before why the heck would he go back under? The raccoon isn't bothering anyone. She's minding her own business. So for about an hour I was trying to coax the idiot dog out with anything I could think of " hey Jack come on out! Come play with buddy!" nothing "hey jack let's on walk!" nothing "jack! Get out here now! Bad dog" nothing "jack, good boy! Good boy jack! Come here you want a cookie?! Come on" nothing. And then after I've been on the verge of a panic attack, almost in tears for what felt like hours he pops out like nothing happened....yeah screw you too. Then I got called into work early, that's fine I'd eater have relaxed a bit more but hey, it's money. Get to work, it's crazy, were short, staffed and the order came in late so were behind. Ended up staying an extra hour and missing my second break....fantastic. Ugh! Just needed to rant. I'm done.

I know how it is to have dogs that don't listen! My dogs have stubborn streaks a mile wide, and while they know their manners, well, sometimes they forget them.

he's a terrier so, because he felt he's territory was being "threatened" he blocked out everything I said...*sigh* advice to those looking to get a dog stay away from terriers
