Jasper’s been a pill lately. On Sunday, he was focused and right with me at agility, and afterwards, he walked easily on the leash without pulling. On Monday, I left the house in the dark and returned in the dark, hence we did not get out for our walk. On Tuesday evening, he pulled and balked, acting as if he’d received no training ever! Yesterday, he redecorated the condo with pieces of a checkbook and rolls of toilet paper. Again, I got home too late to walk with him. In a few minutes, we’ll go out for our walk but I’m not hopeful of success because he’s been bouncing from floor to couch to table to countertop this evening. Sometimes I think I’ll never be able to train him.
This puts me in mind of the funny and poignant narrative, Marley & Me.
