Thought for Thursday - Taking Tucker to Tinkle

I think Tucker has learned that if he sits by the door, not only will I hop up off the couch to take him out to tinkle, but I might just hop off the couch everytime he desires to go out, even if he doesn't actually need to relieve himself. Smart little doggie...grrr. He did this three times in an hour. That kind of gave it away. Dang doggie just wanted me to let him out to sniff around, find other doggie doo doo to roll in or eat. GROSS! I'm not falling for the doggie by the door trick again. He gets out every few hours unless he's sick...that's it, I'm drawing the line! Unless he gets even and poops on the carpet. Then I might have to rethink that...

By the way, Tucker graduates next Sunday from puppy class. He has to demonstrate that he can do the following commands: Sit; Lay Down (which he can FINALLY do); Stay; Wait and then Come when called; Leave It (he's not so good at this, since the other doggies' poops are just so enticing) and Drop it (which oddly enough he usually does...unless it's poop of course). GAWD, doggies are just so disgusting sometimes...cute but gross.

Do they made training classes for girlfriends too? 'cause some of those commands may come in handy sometimes :P

Dogs can be a little gross. They are also wildly attracted to dead things. Good thing he's cute.

Congrats to Tucker on the big achievement. My muttlet flunked puppy school... twice. And 12 year's later, still doesn't come when called. But damn, they are cute!

Yen...I think Tucker was trying to train me, but since he has no people treats for me, I'm not learning...heh.

Gentleman...I believe that you might want to look into the S&M community regarding the training of girlfriends these days. They even use collars and leashes I hear...hehehe

Citizen...I KNOW...eh...gross!

Lynt...Tucker thanks you. If he had treats, I'm sure he'd give you one. I do have to say his name to get his attention before giving the command. Otherwise, he thinks I'm giving the command to the dust bunnies...lol

J...the 30th was Tuesday...hope you feel oriented now...
