Seen raises his hand and states, "Yes, I know what it's like to drag a big dog that does not want to go somewhere!"<quoted text>Hey all.
My daughter arrived today from CA.
Mother ate supper just for her.
Sleeping soundly now, both of them.
The visits from family are really perking mother up but she is still frail and has a lot of congestion and unable to choke it up.
She is a tough ole bird as someone once said about her and is still holding her own.
My dog Beau is avoiding me now cause he is not an outside dog but he is now for a while.
Has anyone ever had to drag an 80 pound outside while he is putting on brakes all the way bout five times a day?
The surprising thing to me is mother is recognizing everyone and talking a little with them quite lucidly.
Hope all are well, and I will check back in when I can.
My 100+ lb "puppy" threw a tantrum yesterday because he wanted to keep playing fetch/tug of war with a stick. So I had to try pulling him maybe 50' by the stick clutched in his jaws. So the sh*thead pulled his trick of flopping down on his side so I had to drag him about another 50' until his jaws tired and he let go of the stick. As tiring and aggravating as the ordeal was, I still saw the humor of it. I was then able to get him the rest of the way to the door by taunting him with the stick, but not letting him have it.
I suggest you try the carrot on a stick method. Get some good smelly dog treats like Beggin Strips and keep it out of reach until you get to where you need to bring him, then give it to him.
