Out of the Blue

After a number of unpleasant incidents, I now keep Hudson the wonder dog on a leash when we walk the doggie trail to avoid issues from her tendency to challenge other dogs. After working to make her aware that this is unacceptable behavior, I am growing optimistic that her attitude towards other dogs may be softening, as we've had a bunch of relatively peaceful encounters lately. This includes three yesterday, the last of which was like icing on the cake, as it was with a Newfie who had to be 150 lbs, teaching Hudsey a valuable lesson in deference.

Newfies are pretty much the only dog my big black lab will play with - otherwise she is usually like "meh". Weird. I think she likes the sheer size and fluff of them...who knows. She is 95 pounds herself - so maybe it makes her feel good about herself. Who knows.
