okay....now officially, this wedsday is the day.....no muzzle during class...we had two weeks off, and she's been doing real well (she annoyed me today, but she was just being a spaz). We had to go to the vet on thursday, and the vet had said how much better she was behaving from only a month earlier....so that made me proud!! oh...by the way.....we found out that she is definately a mix between a Amstaff and a boxer....when she's being good she looks just like my little picture next to my name...but when she's up to something, she gets the boxer face!! i know i'm crazy but i promise you it happens!!

by the way, breeders are calling the mix a "bulloxer" I just thought that was funny. I used to call them mutts.... golden doodle, puggle, bug (boston terrier/pug)(saw one of those at the pet store for $600!!!!!), etc....my old dog was a german shepard/golden retriever....so he was a german retriever...or a golden shepard....yeah...i like that one

okay....so yesterday didn't go as well as we hoped...but anabell showed lots of good signs....most of the class was without the muzzle...but she did a lot of barking....which led to others barking....which led to a fight (between two rotts)....which led to anabell barking more....etc...

the good news was that anabell was able to respond to my redirections much better than ever before.

example: Whenever she tries to challenge me....she immediately goes for the leash, grabs onto it...and does'nt let it go. yesterday she went for it but corrected herself. That was a first!!!

Right now all the good luck wishes are going for your cat Lucy, miss dolittle....but when she's all better please keep wishin for us...it's working!!

Talking Re: Great News!!!

Hello,

You guys are doing GREAT!!! Here is a quote that I love

"She is your friend, your partner, your defender, your dog.
You are her life, her love, her leader. She will
be yours, faithful and true, to the last beat
of her heart. You owe it to him to be worthy of
such devotion."

I love dogs and dog people!!
