On Friday there will be a show on tv about a cloned dog. It was imported from South-Korea because cloning is illegal here, but importing (clone)dogs is not. They called the dog Pipo, which is kind of funny because there's a Pipo the Clown in the Netherlands and now there's a Pipo the Clone rofl The dog probably won't live very long, the cloned sheep Dolly only lived half the age of the original Dolly.
Personally I wouldn't want a clone of a pet I already had. It would never be the same.
eek Wow you've built up some serious lack of sleep. Somehow I've been getting plenty of it. Even when I wake up around 7 am I still manage to fall asleep and get an extra tiny nap.
This morning I was truly annoyed by the dog's stalking behavior. So at some point I snapped at him and prevented him from entering my personal space. It was getting truly annoying. Give me room to breathe please, thank you.
I should watch the first episode from the new Walking Dead season soon, before I end up seeing spoilers.
My brother also had trouble falling asleep, but that was because he had a cold (somehow I haven't caught it yet, my dad has, so it could still happen). You should totally have listened to the Lady Katherine Game of Thrones chapters rofl
The announcement rate is back to 40 today. I guess they got too many complaints. Rightfully so: who wants to browse through freakin' 40 announcements just to get rid of that stupid notice? I think even 10 announcements is too many to click through each day. Especially with all the repetitive gaia cash 'limited time only - timer has already run out' ones.
I also thought that Shantae looked very familiar. But I've never played the game. Perhaps she also looks like someone else?
The dog training session this morning was kind of so-so. That's probably what makes it so disappointing: I don't really see a lot of progress. Sure, at the end we had to call our dogs and Zeno came running towards me like a torpedo. So that feels good, especially when other dogs decide to say hi to other dogs or sniff around, or run circles instead of going to their owner. But still. He could do so much better. His excitement level also goes through the roof the moment we exit the car and start the training session. Thankfully he switches back to calm as soon as we go home. But it does make the training more challenging. He's more frisky and basically ready for battle.
You should have seen the terrorist xD When the dog trainer took over the leash, the dog clearly thought only one thing: 'HELL NO' and tried to stay as far away from the dog trainer as she could (he's taught her some manners in the past). She knew that she couldn't mess around with him. He just had to raise his hand and the dog dropped on the ground, showed her belly 'I surrender!!!!' rofl And the dog trainer said: "I really don't understand why you have so much trouble with this dog". Goodness gracious.. it's funny but sad at the same time. Because the owner still struggles so much. But at least she didn't struggle with this exercise: because the dog couldn't wait to get away from the dog trainer and run back to her owner.
The owner of the bulldog brought her other dog with her this time. The bulldog stayed at home (he's so well behaved, I don't think he even requires more lessons). It's a Scottish Collie. Beautiful dog. But the dog trainer also immediately noticed that this dog was quite different from her bulldog: tail high up, high energy, dominant type. Quite a handful. She struggled with him a lot.
And of course there's the guy with his two overaggressive cane corsos. One of them was tied to the fence and it growled and snatched at Zeno when we walked by. According to my mother it also did that towards the collie and other dogs. I'm glad there haven't been any incidents for weeks, but it could happen at any moment. There was a near-incident with his other dog too, because I heard the dog trainer tell the owner that he had to correct his dog a couple of times.
There's actually an additional smaller, lake next to the bigger lake. It offers an extra path to walk. There were signs there warning for quick sand. I can't quite imagine that there's actually quicksand there, it must just be there to warn off intruders. I had the dog on leash because I hadn't been there before and I don't know how close I might come to the train tracks. It doesn't look too dangerous, so I think I'll let him off leash next time, also because I doubt there'll be a lot of people walking on that path. On some spots it's very narrow and completely in the bushes. There's also a steep climb, which I hope I'll manage if the weather is rainy.
