Vacation - GOOD for you . . . didn't get to go anywhere myself - other than to the beach for a day at a time (closest beach is Atlantic City = about 70 miles from Philly. ENJOY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
ANYway - NOPE - even if Ivan comes inside she will not come in until her hear is drooping. She would live outside if I would permit it!!!!
Yes - the backyard is fenced in and until she had her torn ACL, I used to tether her to one of the trees at night so I could catch her; but I am so apprehensive ever since she had the injury - so I won't tether either dog again.
Ivan gets a little stubborn too (although I was much more strict with him) & he listens 90% of the time. . . which is awesome for a Chow - - -but Effie is a hard head.
I guess I am just going to have to live with it.
Even my "mad voice" doesn't work with her. She is too used to me. My nephew stayed with me for a little while this summer & she would come inside for him - but NOT for ME.
I think it's gonna have to be filet or prime rib - but I will try. Sometimes I get her in saying we go for walk - but I hate to lie to her. However, now that it IS getting cooler at night, perhaps I won't have to fib. WE ALL HATE THE HEAT!!!!!
Thanks!! Enjoy your vacation!!
