So here it is - the reason why me (and now we) love blogging...
We have met lots of super furry and not so furry friends. We get to see and experience cities and places we have never been to - we learn new languages, ideas, recipes and so much more.
We share our experiences with others and they with us. We laugh, smile and sometimes cry with our fellow bloggees - we realise that the world is a small place and there are a lot of lovely beings out there.
Now we are to tag other bloggers - but we think a lot of them have received this - so I pick one who may not - my new friend Max - and if you haven't been tagged - consider yourself fully tagged!
Now .... on Sunday - we got into the Moving Kennel (ie D and Cs car) - and drove a long time to go to a Sea Scouts Hall. Although we think Paddy would make a good Sea Scout as he is always prepared ...to make mischief.
We were here for me - we went to a day course of Tellington Touch - if you do not know about it - go to their website: http://www.ttouch.com/whatisTTouch.shtml
You see, I spent the first 5 years of my life in a different family - and they left me with a lot of anxieties. So much so - that I am a bit reactive - mostly with the thought of my people leaving me - my D calls me Sully when I have my moments - as I become another dog - I shake, bark, salivate and I bite! It is called Fear Aggression and D has replaced so many of my victims (pillows, teddy bears, trousers and even one dress) - she thinks I have a very large carbon paw print - but I think I am helping the economy through her spending.
So D wants to help me become more confident and relaxed (within the approved Terrier guidelines). So a friend told her about TTouch - which has worked with wild animals suffering from anxiety at zoos - so if it works for a Tiger - it should work for a wire fox terrier?
But we spent the day learning calming techniques and new 'touches' that help relax me - I really liked the Tiger Touch and am a fan of the ear acupressure - but I was quite nervous as there were big dogs there and I needed a few 'time out' breaks. Then I was really relaxed with it all. I was supposed to walk around an obstacle course - but I cut through the course without dealing with one obstacle - in my mind - it is the shortest point from A to B - everyone laughed and admired my energy saving techniques. Paddy just wanted to play - he tried to dismantle the obstacle course and entice the other dogs to do the same...he is very annoying sometimes.
But it is early days and we will keep you posted on how it works for me.
Sadly we do not have more pictures - but D is not a multi tasker - as mentioned in a previous post - I think she needs some training. Send her positive photo taking vibes please...
Lots of licks
Sally and Paddy
