'Not only is punishment risky, but it also fails to teach the dog an acceptable alternate behaviour. The dog does not learn what to do the next time he is in the same situation. He only learns to fear the situation.' Emma Parsons, Click to Calm p73

Play Dead (2011).


Please let this be real please let this be real please let this be real...

For the love of all things dog and zombie, I hope this is real, and that it comes out soon. I love horror films, I love zombie films, and I love dogs. I would watch this in a heartbeat!

In girls-related news, Lola has turned into a flirt. Yesterday she went up to a Patterdale Terrier boy, with her ears back, full-body wiggling - something she never does to other dogs (it's a behaviour reserved for her Beloved People, alongside her frantic I'm-so-glad-you're-home yelping scream). Today she went up to another male, black dog; a Greyhound/Border Collie cross. She's usually a little leery of dogs that big (and the dog was quite bouncy, too), but she was on her back in front of him and wiggling, licking and stalking him. Maybe it's a sign that my next dog should be a black male of some kind!

Hee. There's this dog that goes to Kane's doggy daycare and he just looooves her. He follows her around all day, strutting his bad-ass self in front of her, trying to get her to play with him. And it's hilarious because every day, he has to do that for a couple of hours before she'll even LOOK at him, haha. I love that she makes him work for her attention.

Awww, Lola is becoming the popular girl! Too cute!

k8nkane: Lola's attention was reciprocated for all of about thirty seconds, and then *both* wandered off. Apparently, playing hard to get is the in thing right now, regardless of which gender is the flirty one. :) Poor Kane!

Sara: she's a silly, flirty girl when she wants to be. Playing fetch outside has given her a massive confidence boost.
