While I’m in Vienna, my designing friend Stacy Lomman has been petsitting all the “animules,” as we call them. She’s their aunt, after all!
Stacy told me that she took Edward the Dog to the dog run (Gigi the Dog stayed at home, because she hates most other dogs) and, on the way out of the park, he was stopped for a photo shoot. Well, look who is on the awesome The Dogist Instagram/Facebook account today!
And Stacy’s comment is highlarious.
“He’s stubborn. He’ll be in the dog park like he’s ready to go, and as soon as I take him to leave, he pancakes out and won’t move.”
It’s so true. Initially, Edward had what a dog trainer called “street exuberance,” meaning he ran all over the place and up to every single dog during his walks. Due to my own failure to practice the dog trainer’s tips, Edward has recently picked up an additional habit (one that my other Pekes used occasionally too): lying down on the sidewalk, as flat as a pancake, and refusing to budge unless we go in the direction he wants to go in. It’s so embarrassing! Several weeks ago, I vowed that I would get back to the obedience lessons as soon as I’m done with my travels this month. But I have no regrets about my procrastination now, just because it made for a great quote for this beautiful photo!
