Bailey...How can your mummy say all those bad things about you, they can't be true can they?

Val B said...

You'd better believe it Tags, although I must say he is very lovable and really, for a five month old pup he isn't THAT bad!

There are no bad dogs, it's the awful mistreatment that some of them have to endure.
I'm sure you spoil Bailey though, but who wouldn't.
I agree with Del that keeping a bunch of small treats in your pocket will keep him attentive and the gentle reward system is the best way to go. Along with precise clear commands such as "sit", "stay", "no" and enthusiastic "good boys" plus an awful lot of patience and plenty of exercise.
One more thing...I assume he's been neutered?

Give me a cat anytime

The only good cat is a dead cat, they never s--t in their own garden but do it in other peoples. It is most annoying for people that spend time and money making their gardens look nice. For them to be ruined by someone elses cat.

Cats never s..t on public paths,fields,parks,roads,as you say only in other people gardens but they do cover it up unlike a dog,also a cat would never s..t in the house,get a cat a scratching pole and he will leave your furniture alone,get a dog one and he will think it a tree.
Give me a cat any time

You are abit out of date George, or are you chosing to forget. In the Uk it is an offence to let your dogs do their business in a public place without the owner picking it up. So if you see any mess it is the owner's fault not the dogs. We see very little were we live, Cos' we are Posh around here we are. Seriously I have a friend in Cornwall who has two cats, and they will not do their business outside. They always do it on cat litter in a tray near the back do. They will even come into the house do it then go out again. So you cat lovers could train your cats if you wanted.

Jim,A stray dog has no owners,if they have, then the fact that a dog is a stray means that the owners DONT CARE,them dogs will mess anywhere.Even in posh areas, there are stray dogs.You say, the law states,its an offence to let your dog do its business in a public place without the owner picking it up.That law was made against DOG OWNERS,not our dear little pussy cats.Dogs have to be taken walkies,kick the cat out and it will look after itself,a dog has to be told to "sit" "beg" and come to mummy,hasnt it got a brain.My brother-in-law has two dogs no bigger than a rat,horrible pesty things always wanting to jump on your lap and lick you to death YUCK.
Give me a cat anyday

George I see that inadvertently you are re-enforcing my argument for me. The point Is the problem with stray dogs is the owners as I have already indicated, and It pleases me that you agree. The point is most dog owners nowadays do scoop the poop. Unfortunately most cat owners do as you intimated you do. Kick the cat out and not bother about how it affects The environment of their neighbors.

Jim,my last comment on cats and dogs.

A cat is independent.
A dog is Dependant

jim davis said...

Here is my last as well George. Every person that I know that has cats, tell me that their cats do not climb on kitchen work surfaces and tables. Yet I have sat in their houses, and watched as they shouted at the cat to get off. Aaaaagh!

Jim I had a Siamese cat for 17 years and she was not "allowed" to get on work surfaces or to come into bedrooms. Yeah, yeah, she probably did the lot when we were not in but was intelligent enough to be on her best behaviour when we were around. I had to get a child lock on the fridge door as many a time she found a way to open it and help herself to sausages etc.
As for Bayley, yesterday I planted some pots with primroses. What was he running round the garden with this morning? Yes a primrose!
He is good sometimes and yes with the help of treats he "sits", lays "down" and manages to "stay" for a few seconds but then gives in. Not his week though, as he has just lost a bottom canine tooth, the other one is wobbly and tomorrow he is going to be "done"!!

jim davis said...

Oh! Valb you rotter you could at least let him have his oats at least once, You women are soo hard. As my mum used to say, you have got a swinging brick where your heart should be.

Val B said...

Do you know Jim, you made me feel rotten all day yesterday, especially when he came home and looked so pitiful and kept crying. However, today he is fine. What he doesn't know about he won't miss.
Shame though!

Made you feel bad, how do you think poor Baylee felt. You had his nuts cut off then you felt bad. Typical woman.
