Ah, yes, Shelley. Please, tell me more how Ghost’s chewing stuff outside just “would take a little training!” and how it’s just “a little more training!” to keep him from pooping on the rug in front of the door outside.

But yeah, please feel free to expect a perfectly behaved, adult-like twelve-week-old-puppy. Go on. I’ll wait.

In the meantime, why not actually get me some chicken wire so I can fence off whatever plants he’s been digging at? I can only do so much with what I have when I’m absolutely broke.

We live fifteen minutes from a Glass Beach on the coast of northern California. The story behind that is that in the early 1900’s, people used to throw trash over the cliffs. Everything but glass and pottery was bashed away by the waves, but the ocean only tumbled and polished the glass that later washed back up on the shore it was dumped from. 
Unfortunately, there’s a lot less glass than there used to be. The tourists that come always take glass home with them —usually a lot of it!— and it’s depleted the beach. Glass Beach is a State Park and it is actually illegal to take the glass, but people still do it. Makes Grem and I very sad. 
Going to hijack my own post for a minute to say: if you ever visit any of the glass beaches (there are three in the world!) leave the glass! Taking the glass means that there won’t be a glass beach to enjoy in the future, and that’s a very sad thought.

Grem and I went to the beach today! I think he’s been feeling neglected because of the puppy, so I’ve been trying to compensate with one-on-one time whenever possible. He’s still my best friend in the entire world, and I love him so very much.  Grem and I went to the beach today!

  • me: *makes food*
  • me: *ignores food for five hours to sort, delete, move, organize, and edit 150+ photos of my dogs*
  • me: What do you mean this isn't a productive use of my time? What else would I do?

Busy last couple of days, for sure. 

I managed to block off the underside of the house from Grem. Ghost could still fit under there if he tried, but so far he’s very uninterested in going under there. Grem’s always been one to seek out small hiding spots. xD But now that he can’t bail under the house and play keep-away from me, I feel better about letting him out in the yard off-leash. At least now I know I can catch him.

He’s been on a hunger strike of some kind or another, and I can’t tell if it’s because he doesn’t like the food, still spooked from the x-pen roof falling on him, or pissy about the puppy still. But he’ll eat it if I’m training with Ghost and I throw him a few pieces, or if I mix egg into it… hmmm… Pretty sure he’s just being finicky. We’re going to finish this bag and then I’ll try a different flavor next month. Salmon doesn’t agree with Ghost, so maybe the bison is next.

He seems to be (very mildly) resource guarding toys and sticks (stuff he can chew on) from Ghost. I can’t really blame him since Ghost will actively hover around his head and/or try to get in his mouth while he’s got something. I’ve finally given Grem a “safe spot” to chew things in the yard (on the picnic table — Ghost isn’t big enough to jump up there yet) and have been redirecting or removing Ghost when he tries to go after whatever Grem’s got. Grem has been grumbling/growling/mildly air-snapping at him when he gets too rowdy, and I’ve been letting him. Ghost NEEDS to learn what’s not acceptable to other dogs, and I’m 200% confident that he absolutely won’t go overboard with correcting Ghost’s bad manners. He’s always been wonderful with puppies, and tries to use negative reinforcement (removing himself/ignoring Ghost) 95% of the time before resorting to anything harsher.

Ghost’s general training is going incredibly well, and is making me kick myself for not using R+ on Grem as a pup. Knowing Grem, he’d have caught on very, very quickly. Ah well. Live and learn!

So far, Ghost:

- Sits for pretty much everything; food, attention, going in/out of doors/his crate, my attention, flirt pole, playtime, etc. It’s his default behavior for now.

- Gives a paw super reliably, and tries to use “shake” as another default when he’s not sure what I want.

- He’s also catching on to high-five

- Working on “down” — he’s making quick progress!

- Leash manners need work. He’s a bit of a puller, but not too bad.

- Knows leave-it. There was a bowl of tuna on the floor and he sniffed it. One “leave-it” and he backed up, sat down, and looked at me like “can I have it please?”

- Great attention!

- Super food-motivated

- Hasn’t had an accident in the house in about a week

- Much more confident outside in town — actively observes, sniffs, and listens to everything, without being too curious or too shy. Willingly accepts attention and licks people’s noses, lol

- Interested in other dogs, but no temper-tantrums

- Learning “round” (spin into heel on right) and “other side” (spin into heel on left”

- Also learning “through” (sit between my legs — perfect for staying out of the way or calming dogs down. It’s Grem’s emergency reactivity command)

All in all, he’s doing very, very good. I’m absolutely loving his default sit — it makes it so much easier to go through doors, move around, etc. Very, very practical. Once he’s old enough to walk around town, I’m going to tweak it a bit for an auto-sit whenever I stop, and probably pick up training Grem’s auto-sit, too. With two dogs, I am going to need something like that if I expect to have calm, controlled walks without getting my arm yanked.

I’m very happy with Ghost, honestly. My relationship with Grem is a bit strained, but I know it’s just puppy stress and it’ll blow over soon enough. He just needs to get used to sharing and realize that I still love him just as much as I did before we got Ghost.

I’m pretty sure I can definitely call Grem my heart-dog, though. Ghost is a wonderful dog and I love him, and he’s very, very intelligent and in tune with me, but Grem is something special and I don’t know if I’ll ever quite have the same bond with any other animal.

Oh! In other news, Grem’s birthday is next Saturday! His celebration is going to be belated — I’m too broke to do anything special right now, but rest assured he’ll get stuff. I’m actually thinking of getting him a Ruffwear harness… maybe one of the Front Range ones. ;)

There’s a couple who shops here who buys a 28.6lb of Six Fish Orijen and a large bag of freeze dried beef Stella & Chewys + a variety of cans weekly. They also buy 20lbs of raw from the local raw dog food deli weekly.

They have three Great Danes haha

There a lady who owns 5 (i think?) danes who picks up from the same raw supplier I do and always gets 150 lbs of meat

I can’t even image

Five? I can’t imagine dealing with so many giant dogs - let alone feeding them!

Holy crap, how much money does she have to be able to support so many raw-fed giants? o_o
