Yesterday I took the day off from the Studio....we had DH's sister and her family over for the weekend and I had a lot of cleaning up to do.

(((Laura))), I am so glad it worked out in the end but what a horrible, scary experience! I hope you are feeling better now. Sending pug hugs and kisses your way...

Thanks so much Kelli....I'm actually hoarse....I think it's the combination of calling her and the stress of the situation.

Oh Laura! How scary. I'm glad that Cleo is okay! I'm sorry about your voice and back and arms. I guess the company was too much for Cleo.


One thing our trainer taught us was to yell a food item when chasing a dog. I've tried it with Gracie. She doesn't so much run away but she'll get busy and won't come when I call her. We live on 8 acres so I don't have to worry about traffic too much but I still want her to come when I call her - just in case we do get in a traffic situation. I tried yelling "milk bone" when she won't come and sure enough... when she heard that she came running. Of course I had to go get one for her but that's okay. She came. I think cheese would work too. Does Cleo have a trigger word like milk bone that you have to spell in front of her? That word would work I think.
