I wanna run to you..

Doesn't this look like a clip from a gushy chick flick of 2 long lost lovers?


It wasn't. Limo has her bad habit back of chasing horses:-x I broke her of the habit a couple of years ago with a Citronella spray collar and it worked, but she has started up again. I keep meaning to put it back on her I just have to find the pieces. It has a noise warning, and then 2 spray settings to choose from, I would just blast her full spray with no warning when I used it:-) It made me feel powerful, it was great.


I hope Lester is enjoying his retirement. He seems to be. He's still the boss of his herd and still comes running when you call. He has picked up this very annoying habit though in the last year and it's gotten worse, but he grabs his halter and the other halters if you're not careful and won't let go. He grabs the nose band as you're pulling it over his nose, if you get that far then you have to be fast enough before he bites the cheek straps otherwise you get into a game of tug-o-war for him:-/ Sometimes it's cute, but other times I just want to get the halter on and the others haltered and back to the barn, oh say when it's pouring down raining!

I've never heard of that kind of collar, but I'd put it back on Limo before he gets hurt.
Les does look like he's enjoying his retirement, guess he learned how to play halter tag with the gang.

Welcome back, girlfriend!
Long time no see. I missed you!

I've never heard of the Citronella collars. Would they also work to curb barking, too? Our GSD won't stop barking sometimes. gah!

Less sure looks great and what a character he is. lol!

i'd like to know more about the citronella collar too...never heard of it and since i am not a fan of electric shock collars this could be a good alternative...

The remote citronella collar is really nice. You can activate it with a remote to discourage behaviors you do not like. I like it much better than a shock collar. Unfortunately, in my experience, they leak. We returned ours several times and finally gave up.

You have much to be thankful for my friend.

I hope you enjoy a wonderful Thanksgiving with your family, friends and four-legged loved ones, too.

Chasing the horses... annoying and dangerous. Not just for Limo.
The dog where I board chases the horses, I've nearly been trampled a few times.
She's also been kicked in the head and sent head over tail. Didn't teach her a damn thing except to be sneakier.
She's the biggest PITA when you unload. Sneaks along the side of the trailer and then jumps at the tail & hocks when the horse backs out. I swear the horses are going to think "Bear GET!" and "Bear F&$K OFF!" are commands to unload. lol

Lester's little halter game sounds funny but I can see the annoyance factor :)
