Rik's Ramblings

Tuesday, June 01, 2004


It's been a stressful weekend at sagarville. Made worse because it was a 3 day weekend.

The new dog (lucky) has driven us crazy. Yes the honeymoon period was short lived! The wife almost had me take him back to the pound on Sunday night.

I'm not a dog person, so I don't know what's good and what's not. But his current list of shortcomings are:

- Taking food off the table
- Pulling hard at the lead on walks
- Barking at (and trying to chase) squirrels, birds and cats
- Barking at anything that passes us while we're in the car

The latter woke Ben up from a sleep which was something that really pissed me off. I was ready to throw him out of the car as we drove along the freeway. And I can open that trunk from the driver's seat, so he needs to watch out! :-)

So Lucky is now on probation. We plan to get some training - doggy and parents - to see if we can get these problems fixed. I think he's on a timeline though! He needs to get fixed before too long!
