Mackie is back and he'll be here for a whole week! His daddy is leading another barn raising - this time in New Jersey.
This past Tuesday, mom and I were walking with Miss Dotty, and we spotted a small black dog walking with a lady up ahead of us. She was training her dog at the time to sit and "look at me" and he was responding beautifully. As we got closer, mom immediately noticed that the black dog was a very young puppy and sooooooo cute. I went into berserk mode spinning and trying to get at the puppy and mom was doing all that she could to get my attention and to control me. She was afraid that I was going to back out of my harness. The lady and the puppy moved quickly away and mom was very upset with my behavior. She needed to figure out why it had happened. When we first moved from our apartment back to our old stomping grounds, we met a Golden Retriever puppy one morning. I sniffed him and then proceeded to growl at him. So mom is thinking that I don't care for puppies very much (thank doG I was never a mother with pups, right!)
She thinks that I was telling the puppy that this is my territory and I don't want to ever see you on my walkie again? I have had recent bloodwork and I am healthy so my health is not an issue.
We knew that Mackie would be spending a week with us and mom wasn't going to have 2 Airedales going nutso on a puppy so she told me that until my behavior has improved - I will be wearing my prong collar.
We have not seen the puppy since the incident so maybe he took my advice *wink wink*☺
What is that red thing hanging upside down, brave Mackie? You go first to see and then I'll follow!
Love ya lots♥
Molly with Mackie
