Pandoras Box

24 03 2010

Pandora has a box.
She ’must have’, right?
Actually she’s got two.
In the boxes, all kinds of good stuff are waiting to be picked up by Pandora. The boxes are filled with goodies like dried pigs ear, dried lounges, salmon chips and so on.
The fur kid doesn’t want any of it.
Sometimes she takes an ear, starts to walk around in the house. Frustrated and unhappy.
She is whining and complaining.
Then she wants to go out, and outside she’ll dig a hole, put the treat in it and cover it again.
What she cannot eat, she stores until another day (when a green, bad-smelling ear is delicious).
Sometimes she stores raw meet in the corner of the sofa!

The bone yard
These mornings it’s getting light outside earlier and earlier. Pandora rises with the sun, and sometimes I can hear her, in my light sleep, that she is chewing a bone somewhere in the house.
This morning as I got up and went to the kitchen, Pandora had collected all her accessible bones and spread them on the kitchen floor. I’m impressed. She has never done that before, but she must have had a great time finding them.

(She has approximately 117 more in the Pandora Boxes).

We have been to the training lessons three times now in the boxer club.
We have also been training a little in between and it is obvious now that she has learned stuff.
Sit, walk in leach and following in all directions, slow walking, running, stand.
All these things are getting so much better by the day.

Two days ago when I came home from work I laid a track with some cat food. We discovered by coincident that cat food was perfect for recall, so why not use it now and then.
The only problem is that she is barfing and mainly eats raw meat and I don’t want to ruin her stomach.

I hope I don’t jinx anything, but I have a vague feeling of her recall improving.
I cannot call her in if I’m standing upwards and bend over, reaching for her.
But if I sit on my knees she puts down her ears, smacks her lips, eyes get small and she comes.
Big thing.
All signs of subjecting are there which in the end should also go away and be replaced by a self-confident dog.

Holiday and a new car
Next week it is Easter holiday.
This will give us time to fence the entire ground to stop the out-breaking dog from … breaking out!
Wednesday next week, will go get a new car with room for the fur kid in the back. It’s going to be so nice to have a car where the ceiling ain’t eaten 😉
