Have you all seen this Bud Light commercial? Well, watch it. It's given me great insight on how I've raised my dogs.
Ok...so here's my story. B bought Jaci for me as a birthday gift 5 years ago. I really wanted a Shih Tzu, something fluffy, calm. A lap dog basically. Well, instead, I got a terrier. She is hyper, anxious, sheds everywhere and is not even close to what I wanted. She's sweet as she can be and is very smart but we were very hard on her. Hence, the too heavy. So now, anytime I do anything, she thinks I'm going to beat her. Let me just say that I've never spanked her. I'm a big screamer though. I know, I know. It's bad but I used to scream at her so much because she was SOooo bad. She pees on everything (and everyone), she used to chew on everything, she never listened, she would refuse to go outside if it was cold. So, we were very hard on her. We punished her by putting her in the corner. Yes, I watch too much Nanny JoJo. So now we have this extrememly neurotic, anxious dog.
Then there is Macee. If you don't remember this post, I bought Macee after my sweet, sweet Chloe died. Chloe was my 25th birthday present from B. The best gift I had ever been given. When she died I was so completely heartbroken, we got Macee.(seriously, I didn't get out of bed for 2 days, B had to do something). Macee is a precious, precious baby to me. I love her so much and I'm so happy to have her. However, I think because losing chloe was so hard on me, I wanted Macee to be happy and loved. So, I never punish her. Ever. She is sooo bad! I call her to come and she runs in the other direction. I tell her to go to her room and she turns her nose up and walks away. Holy geez I've created a monster!
This morning I took the dogs outside to go potty and she stood in the freezing rain, I seriously think, to prove that she didn't have to come when I called her.
What the crap do I do with this dog!? She will turn 1 this month...am I too late?
Caesar, please, please, please come to my house!!!!! My animals are out. of. control!
