Out of the Blue

After Hudson the wonder dog recently picked up a small dog, I came upon a way to let her run free on the doggie trail while still protecting against a repeat incident: I got her a muzzle. This is not ideal, but until we can be more certain she's not going to get into trouble, it seems like a sensible approach. Of course she was not wild about being this (in spite of the cute blue pattern on the muzzle), and spent a lot of time trying to find a way to remove it. Then when we came to the end of our walk I found her rolling on this pile of earth and rubbing her face all over. The dog owners out there don't need to be told that anything a dog wants to roll in that badly must be gross, and sure enough, there must have been some poop involved. She's a very smart dog, and I am tempted to suspect she knew if she got the muzzle gross enough it might get thrown in the garbage. No such luck, she got a bath, the muzzle got washed, and we're ready for round two. Wee!

But if she is running free and a little away from you, what if another mean dog comes by and attacks her and she can not defend her self?

That was really nice of you...

I have never harmed my dog in any way, but she knows without a doubt who the boss is and she is a very well adjusted happy girl.

I had a dog that rolled in a dead seal, for quite a while. Evidently the dead seal had been there a while too.

Red alert! Now we all need to be strip searched and have CAT scans before we can fly! We should be interrogated thoroughly by Obama's youth brigade. This means war! Iran launched a turtle into space. This is obviously meant to say that Iran can destroy the planet at any whim. Shields up!

Crist dude chill out, may want to lay off the drugs or get tested for some kind of chemical imbalance... or better yet turn off the TV man.

EDIT and LOL at the Iranian propoganda attempt to claim scientific research, they put a bunch of little animals in a box on a ground to air missile, those creatures were probably pureed within seconds of launch.

I would say Hudson didnt like the smell of it so was going for some doggy Channel #2.

EDIT

Agreed and it's unfortunate. I have a 'Halti' collar for walking my dog (used to train the dog not to pull)

Hmm I had no trouble breaking my dog of this habit, with just a plain old collar, and shes a Boxer. Everytime she went ahead of me while walking I kicked her back feet, now she stays right beside me or behind me and the leash just hangs loose all the time.

The downside of placing a muzzle on her is the perception others will have now. It screams - crazy dangerous animal here!

Well, on the one hand, that perception is one that she has earned by demonstrating crazy and dangerous behavior.

On the other hand, she loves people even more than she dislikes other dogs, so if the muzzle makes people wary of petting her that will be unfortunate.

Agreed and it's unfortunate. I have a 'Halti' collar for walking my dog (used to train the dog not to pull), and it resembles a muzzle. Feel like people confuse the two and hold it against him...

I wonder what she will do next to sully the muzzle?

I got her a muzzle.

*ahem* "Party Hat".

As in, when there's a party, the hat goes on.

edit:

As with cats, sometimes it's hard to tell who's training who.
