Today is 19 days since Ash's neuter. I am going to take all the dogs for a nice run in the fenced in field I rent for them. With the neuter and the bitter cold snap we had they have not been out for almost 3 weeks. I have stopped feeling so guilty about that, it used to eat away at me if I didn't take them out. Before when I only had one or two dogs I walked. I LOVE walking, however since getting Lync that has stopped. I can't get him to stop pulling :( He is so strong and pulls so hard that it is very unpleasant for me and the Collies. I have tried everything from a halti, to a no pull harness, and in desperation a pinch collar. He has continued to pull through them all, it's extremely frustrating. I will know better with my next flatcoat to not allow any pulling , at all, ever! right from when he is a puppy.
I could take the Collies together then Lync alone but whoever is left behind puts up such a fuss barking etc. that I just don't bother, especially because Brad works shift work and is usually sleeping when I am going out.
Anyway, I hope Ash is ok to run, it's almost been 3 weeks so I'm sure he will be. The last thing I want is for him to bust a stich or something!
Well I better get dressed if I'm going , cheers!
