DTrain Posted September 20, 2008 Report Share Posted September 20, 2008 Just to add to my dog Pete's recent troubles he has been declared a dangerous dog, not really. I have been run over by geese, sheep, one or two cows and the odd sheep dog and have always managed to survive. On Monday night we were doing a play session with the guys and having a great time. I was throwing a frisbee and my wife was doing ball duty. I made a bad throw and off Pete went straight toward my wife. She and Pete both zigged in the same direction. My wife went up in the air and came down to break her ankle. Pete did a flip and continued on. We went to the hospital and did the usual stuff. It was not funny at the time of course but we began to see the light side the next evening. My wife had words with Pete at the time and a few suggestions as to were he could put his body slams. We got a few suggestions from friends of course and I thought one in particular was very creative. We should get a set of flash cards like Pete can read. Hold up a picture of a sheep and say yes, you can body slam, hold up a picture of a cow and a goose and do the same thing and then hold up a picture of my wife and say, no body slam. It took a couple of days and except for my wife all seems to be getting back to normal. Oddly enough my wife has been home all week and the dogs have access to her all the time. We have noticed that the dogs have perked up, they seem to be happier and have less problems as I have described in a number of other posts. When we lived in the middle of nowhere we were home together every day with the dogs. My wife has gone back to work since we moved and I am wondering if her being home is something the dogs have been missing. Go figure.
