I'm working a new shift which has disrupted our routine.
"Someone" now only gets one long run before I have to go to work,
and a leashed walk when I get home.
He's not happy about that.
When I got home last night, he would not take care of "business" while leashed.
After 30 minutes of discussing the penalties of disobedience if he didn't come when I called him,
I unleashed him.
"Someone" is now grounded for life.
I had to get the car out of the garage and bribe him with a ride
to get him to come to me after an hour of his "fun and games."
We sat in the garage after a ride around the parking lot
and had a discussion about his unacceptable behavior.
I didn't raise my voice or show any anger.
But he knew I was disappointed in him and refused to look at me.
He leaned back against the seat, head down and eyes looking away.
|This is what Trooper's pout looks like,|
except that he won't look at you when he does it.
It was hard to keep from smiling at his remorse.
