no doubt some unsolicited “do-gooders” will raise a fuss about this, ha!
and it won’t end there... then the meddlers will come after our pussy’s catnip!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
there is no end to tyranny once it starts .....
the last time one of these meddlesome A-holes tried to talk us out of giving out kitty catnip, I just told him I’d cut out pussy’s catnip if he cut out his own marijuana
(some of these communistic big government tyranny jerks are real hypocrites!)
I wish there were such a thing as puppy catnip: we currently have a big problem with a new all-black Lab /Ital. Greyhound mix, who refuses to come in from the backyard, and can’t reliably be coaxed even by pieces of expensive smoked Gouda.
She is very skittish, and even when she makes it into the solarium on the way to the main body of the house, she’ll dart back down the stairs and into the quarter acre backyard the instant she sees any of us moving around in the house. She kept us on tenterhooks from nearly 3 hours yesterday AM/
and the day before that managed to fall through some small area of the stairs going down, and wound up running around in the neighborhood, sending my daughter in a frenzy, since Delilah is the love of her life.
I would spray puppy catnip on her if there were such a thing.
At least we’d be able to get her distracted long enough to slip a leash on her.
She is a rescue dog from Georgia and has had this problem
as reported by previous temporary owners who had her and couldn’t keep her. Wonder is she was abused very early on.
Dried liver dog treats!
My sister refers to them as “Puppy Crack”! Not one dog I’ve seen has ever turned its nose up at this stuff.
Let me make a suggestion, not knowing any of your circumstances, because those are the best kind! /s
Consider adopting an older, calm, male, gets-along-with everybody,”buddha” dog. Shelters are full of ‘em, simply because they are old.
We went to a local rescue group’s adoption event to pick up an 8 y.o. Aussie-mix we had adopted online. I had a pocket full of dried liver treats and the dog in the next cage, flipped her tail in anticipation of getting a treat too. We ended up adopting her along with the Aussie-mix even though she was a basket case, a completely fearful, pretty much unsocialized 2-ish year old setter-mix. The Aussie-mix showed her the world was not a scary place and people could be her friends. They are completely bonded, and the one time she did get loose, she circled back around to be with her buddy.
She was housebroken, and after she calmed down, we discovered that she knew basic commands, too. Like you, we know nothing of her time ~on the run~, but at some point in the past, she had a home.
The best feeling was taking her back to the rescue group for a visit and having some of the people break into actual tears of joy at her new demeanor. While we did a lot, the presence of the other dog calmed her down enough that she could start feeling secure in her new environment.
