There are the ups, then there are the downs.

There were a lot of ups and downs this week.

In one practice I broke Banksy's dogwalk contact, a-frame contact, and poles.

Then I fixed them in 3 other practices.

Banksy had a complete PTSD meltdown at the vet's office and it was one of the saddest things I've ever seen.

But she let me touch her foot yesterday. And I was able to dremel 2 nails today. And she's learned to lay on her rug when I sweep without attacking the broom or staring at the blowers.

Gustavo is perfect.

Except he has itchy fleas and he had to have a bath.

Otterpop is driving us all insane with her barking and non stop manic behavior.

But she swam twice out to where Banksy abandoned her tennis ball in the pond to save the tennis balls.

Also I stuck her in the bathtub with Gustavo and they both stood there perfectly still except for their little dog shivering and didn't try to jump out of the tub.

Ruby is perfect.

Except for when she wanders around and bugs the other dogs with her wandering and does an apeshit happy dance of barking at meal time which drives the other dogs crazy because they're all supposed to sit there quietly on the rug or the step and there's apeshit happy Ruby running around barking and how do you explain that to her?

Banksy did a loud and super slammy teeter the other night at an indoor agility place and got a little scared.

But she did awesome teeters today except for tried a 4 feet on instead of 2 feet on 2 feet off. So I got out a tuggy ball and the 2 on 2 off came back.

Otterpop and Banksy had a kerscuffle in the house the other night. It freaked me out and I thought our world was over and I yelled and stuck everybody in crates, and I thought what have I done? How can we have 4 dogs if 2 of them don't get along?

Everybody has been happy campers since.

The list goes on and on, the list goes up and down.

I'm so glad to read of your trials and tribulations. It makes me feel so much better about how bad my dog is! Thank you!

I am pretty sure this is a compliment that my dogs are so bad that your dog seems less bad in comparison! Yay! I think!

It is :) and my dog is not less bad, just different bad!
