Abby and I are at WAR
She is now refusing to come in when she has the squirrel spotted.
No more coming to calls, squeakies, whistles, dog whistles.
No more coming to tasty treats. Tar getting a treat. Tar getting multiple
After dragging her barking self into the house a bunch of times yesterday
she had to stay in this morning after the first infraction.
She went to the door and made gagging sounds - like I'M GOING TO THROW UP!!!
Out she went, didn't throw up, started barking her fool head off at the damn squirrel.
This afternoon GB and I went out and bought a noise/buzz collar. Has 10 settings,
two warning versions. It has a remote control. It cost a lot.
And then we bought a bunch of chew bones and toys such as a lime
green squeaky hedgehog, to assuage the guilt.
Total bill over $200.
GB put it together, we read the directions, she is outside now. We are waiting....
The squirrel is waiting.... There is the rumble of thunder..... Tar is waiting...
UPDATE: Squirrel came outside his nest, stuck his fingers in his ears, waggled them, and
stuck out his tongue. Abby barked. As per instructions GB gave her the command, no and quiet,
still barking. Then he pressed the noise option on low. AND SHE STOPPED. And came in the house. The coming in the house may be due to the fact that it is hailing now...
