Man Vs Dog congratulates The All Blacks’ win

I have learnt something this week – attaching a dog’s leash to your girlfriend’s coat when she’s not looking and pretending to walk her round the park is not viewed as amusing in her eyes. Strangely, she believes you have made her look foolish – NOT in the eyes of the general public, but the dog.

That’s right, I have apparently ruined Helen’s ‘alpha dog’ status and it could not have come at a worst time. CJ appears to be going through her rebellious streak which means chewing things (the wall, the carpet), shredding things (manuels and a book I got for my birthday) and barking lots (all the time).

Still, I have also made her ‘give me five’ as well as high-five. Next up? I’m contemplating the ‘Top Gun high five‘.

    Yes, and Timon is ruining my training. The hand-sign for stay and for high-five are very similar (i.e. a flat hand extended to CJ) so now when I want her to stay, she’s high-fiving. This is going to spectacularly backfire at puppy class on Sunday…
