Take a walk......

Gentle Leader.....

I HAVE A DOG!!!
Her name is Dasha.

A very sweet and caring dog!
I love her to pieces.
EXCEPT....

when we are outside, taking a walk
THEN........

She is THE MOST
BAD - NOT LISTENING
living being on the planet.

This morning... I felt so ashamed!!!

She always pull so hard, that
it is almost impossible to
keep her in control.
Especially when she see's other
people walking across the street.
And I'm not even talking about
when she see's another dog!!!
She doesn't want to harm them, she
just wants to play and snuggle
...WITH EVERYBODY!!!!
Young - Old - bikers - dogs...

She always RUNS towards them and
she pulls ME along. Flying behind
her like, I'm her shadow.
(can you picture it??)

This morning she had me floored, as
she saw another dog.
I know I know... it sounds
HILARIOUS.....
but is was NOT!!!!!
Whilst I was lying there on the ground
she was playing with another labrador
and I didn't want to let go, so
she runs around me and....
well.... you get the picture.

The lady owner of the other labrador
knew exactly what I needed.
She told me, that she has had
that same problem and that there
was a solution.

REALLY???????

I was all ears!!!!!
Then she told me about the Gentle Leader.
And how it would train the dog to
walk nicely beside their bosses.
(uhm... is that possible???)

And WHY didn't I met this lady
ANY SOONER??????

After I apologized and thanked the lady,
we walked home. I immediately googled
for the Gentle Leader and rang to our
local Pet store, see if they were in stock.
They were! Yes!!!

I put on my jacket and prommised Dasha (dog)
that when I came back, I would bring
something nice!!!!
he hee (evil laugh)

When I got home, I had to adjust the
bindings and voila... we were ready to go out.
At first she jumped and crawled across
the street.

(now THAT was hilarious)

She was totally surprised.
But... I got her going after bribing (sp)
her over with something yummie.
She did AMAZING!!!!!

U N B E L I E V E A B L E

I have never ever had such a fun walk
with my darling Dasha. She was the
BRAVEST dog EVER!!!!!

So THANK GOD for the
Gentle Leader.... and for that lady.

any way... enough rambling....

I wanted to drop off these cards.
I had a little play with my scraps
and some 3tailscraft chippies.



I think that this last one
I going to be send to that
lady. She changed something
in my life, for the GOOD!!!!

Have a great day,
hugs,
Paulien

I know I shouldn't laugh but the image of you being dragged around after Dasha is very funny. I'm glad the lady you met got you sorted out and now you have a well behaved dog and you can take your little walks with pleasure. Anita xx
