Amused

The neighbors have a golden retriever puppy that they apparently don't know how to train or leash. It's sweet and energetic but clearly untrained and it makes my dog edgy. My mom and I were outside, we'd just let our dog back in the house because she was having trouble with the retriever when the retriever decided to jump on my mom, and boom just like that I had the dog down and on the ground. It was kind of cute how quickly it calmed down and was all like "oh so this is what you want". Very sweet dog. I hope the owners work something out soon because it's a smart dog, but it's going to be very big when it grows up and the jumping and nipping it displays now will hurt someone when it's bigger if someone doesn't give it a better outlet.

Now my dog is anxious in the house, following my mother and I around while whining. The retriever is tracking us outside, every window I go to, there's the dog looking expectantly at me. It's very cute. I kind of want to pull out a tennis ball and have the two dogs play together, but I think it would agitate my dog as she's already kind of edgy. Le sigh for insecure dogs and neighbors who don't understand the responsibilities of dog ownership.
