6 months, 3 weeks ago
I watched this weekend at my son Joshua’s house as Heidi (my Doberman) decided that she wanted to meet the dog next door, and she jumped a four foot privacy fence. I assumed that the fence would be a barrier to her and I didn’t have her shock collar on. I assumed wrong.
And you’ve seen the video of bears jumping up and down on their front legs to warn you before they attack? A couple of weeks ago I witnessed Heidi exhibiting the same behavior. She barked so loudly that she hurt my ears, while each bark was timed with her paws landing on the floor. I don’t recall who she saw on the sidewalk, but she was pissed, and I wouldn’t have wanted her outside at the moment.
And then there is this.
She literally arranged the pillows, crashed on the couch, and then pulled the blanket over her. I kid you not. At about 85 pounds, her long legs have to hang off.
Shhh! … don’t tell my wife. Heidi isn’t allowed on the couch, and if my wife knew about this Heidi would be done for. In a throw-down between my wife and Heidi, Heidi doesn’t stand a chance.
