I hope the stubborn Sugar hound learns to pee outside. It’s worse than watching a toddler! She’s doing better or maybe I should say that we are getting better at learning her routines! LOL It was the only accident in two days……what you think is a friendly visit from the living room to the kitchen……is possible a sign that she has to go pee! Who knows the rules? She leaves the kitchen after visiting me and heads out to the LR and pees on the area rug. You go to put her in her crate and OMG you would think that we are absolutely KILLING her. Not sure what her previous owners have done, but it’s down right freaky hearing her hollering like she does. The bastards! She can go all night in her crate without peeing, so she can do it. Sonny is great……three pees in the house and that was it. Stubborn little girl!
Some funnies that I haven’t been posting.
When I get up at 0350 for work, I take them both out to pee. I bring them inside and they go into their crates. I lock Sugar in her crate at night because I don’t trust that she’ll pee somewhere. Rick is still sleeping, so it’s dark in the bedroom. I put her in her crate and end up shoving her backside in, then I get in the shower, get ready and go to work.
They normally don’t get up until 0630, so Rick was hearing her fussing. She would fuss and settle down, fuss and settle down……….eventually he got up and opened the crate door. Out comes Sonny and then Sugar! LOL Sonny had got into her crate and I didn’t see him, so they were both in her small crate together! He hasn’t done that again!
I take them both out together. One day Rick had left the portable propane torch sitting by the shed. I was walking them and he started growling and his hackles rose towards the tank. I was impressed! Anyway, Rick has done really well with him on his morning walks. He makes him sit for cars, dogs, people etc…..so he does listen to sit. He was growling and barking, so I had him sit. We walked closer and had him sit again. I did this a couple more times just for the exercise and eventually we got close to the tank and I patted it. I was really impressed with how protective he was, but he also listened. He’s definitely a unique gem.
Yesterday I came home to toilet paper all over the LR! Rick had forgotten to close the bathroom doors and he took the roll of the tumbler. He had fun stuffing it in one of the beds in the LR. It was funny because it was really stuffed in the side of the bed, like he was hiding it. Dude, there’s white TP all over the place……..no hiding it anywhere! LOL
They love playing tug of war with each other. They both get in one of the LR beds and maul each other. They were playing and Sonny was pulling Sugar around while she was in the bed. It was hilarious!
One day they both got out through the back porch door. Thankfully Rick was right there and snatched Sugar up, but Sonny took off like a bullet. Rick took off running without his shirt or shoes. Once I realized that they were already down the road, I got the car. Thankfully there was a car at the end of the road and he was stopping for Sonny. Sonny followed them into the driveway and was waiting for them to get out of the car when I drove up. He was about to take off when he looked at me the first time…….he was about to bolt away and then thankfully he turned back to me and came up to me. If he had went through those woods he would have been right on the main road. It was very scary! Little idget!
Sugar is definitely filling out now. No more ribs showing and her belly isn’t skinny. She’s doing great. Sonny has grown taller and filled out like a brute. He is a powerful little guy……that’s for sure! They are really a good match together. Hopefully Sugar figures out how to tell us she has to go out soon. Once that happens, our lives will run a lot smoother.
