Yesterday the whole family went to doggie obedience class at Pets Plus school here in London. Dexter did great! The rest of us have some learning to do. After supper I took Dexter for a walk and it was very pleasant. I needed to praise his good behavior more and correct him with a gentle hand. His loose leash walking and heeling improved a hundred percent.
We were cruising through a local park and there were a few dogs barking from the fences, and running through the field. They got him distracted, and me too I guess because a big shepherd passed within 20 feet of us and he just lunged. He pulled me off my feet, but I kept my grip. I put him into a down stay until the other dog went past.
By the time we got home, I noticed how badly my hand was hurting and it started to swell. I've called Teleheath Ontario and the RN advised me that it was likely a sprain. So I'm taking Advil and using ice and trying to rest it. Typing isn't too bad, but knitting requires me to curl my hand, so that bothers me more. We took Dexter to the dog park to exercise him this morning. He does great with other dogs when he's not on the lead.
I'm sorry if you've come here for knitting content. All I have these days is dog content. But at least he's a danged cute dog!
Aw shoot. I don't know how to rotate movies.... Bear with me people.
