You Can't Teach An Old Dog New Tricks....

or can you?

That’s what I attempted to find out when we ‘adopted’ a 4-month old black lab/dalmation mix into our house, joining our 7-year old Chihuahua/Jack Russel and 1-year old Lhasa Apso/Chihuahua. Our “small” family members have always been allowed to sit on the couch curled up next to us or on our laps. With the addition of a big member, I decided to try the “No dogs on the couch” rule.

Haha.. I’m sure it IS possible. However, in the past month, I have not had any luck in keeping our little furry friends off the cozy couches. And now Blaze lazily climbs up there and plops himself down right there with them -ignoring the growls and mumbles of whoever he decides to lay on. ☺

We’ve always been big on cuddles and loves with our furry family, but I still can’t stop hoping…
“when we move, there will be NO dogs on the furniture!”

I guess we’ll see when the time comes.

How about you? Have you changed your rules with your pets and been successful? Or was it a lesson in futility? I’d be interested in hearing your stories….

    Well… if you have not enforced that rule frm the beginning… it is an uphill battle…. I have a very stubborn chihuahua (aren’t they all?) and have found if you dont do it from the beginning…. I let him chase squirrels and pigeons etc when he was a puppy because it was so “cute” well, now he is 3 years old and trying to chase everything… not so cute anymore. My fault, really….lol.
