When the family dog would adopt this posture in a chair, we’d say she was “Sitting up like a regular person.” I don’t remember Ashley doing so before. #dogsofmastodon
Ashley and Moose Tracks tussling in the dog park.
Moose Tracks is still a puppy, and kinda bitey, but Ashley did very well at simultaneously tolerating his behavior and teaching him how to do better. #dogsofmastodon
Ashley lay down on the floor in the bedroom, so I sat down on the floor next to her. She started woofing at me, so I woofed back at her.
She seemed non-plussed. #dogsofmastodon
I did a poor job of training Ashley to look at me. Instead of looking to me for guidance, she’s usually looking around, mostly looking for things she shouldn’t be doing.
This morning, though, she was looking at me, so I seized the opportunity to get a picture of her that’s not just of the back of her head. #dogsofmastodon
“To take the dog for a walk safely, you have to pay attention to the dog, and to the surroundings—people, squirrels, other dogs… It’s a lot like multitasking.”Jackie
Ashley in the early morning sun. #dogsofmastodon
The sun shining through the patio fence cast almost zebra-like, or tiger-like stripes on Ashley. 🐕 #dogsofmastodon
One of the best things about cats was that they seemed to understand when you were sick. They’d sit on your lap all day and be completely undemanding.
This is so not true of dogs. #dogsofmastodon
