This has been a banner couple of weeks for pet misbehavior. Brody really brought his A game this month. It’s a miracle he didn’t need some sort of ER visit, truly.
Now, I know this is my fault for not making him tired enough. He’s been off because of all the changes in his routine, and I’ve been travelling, sick, and doing all sorts of things that don’t include giving him enough exercise, so that the smallest insults such as leaving the house for half an hour leave him with no choice except to wreak havoc.
So this year, the New Year’s Resolution is easy: give him more outlets to burn off his extreme Golden energy. It’s actually a great opportunity for me to try out all the things I’ve been wanting to do with him anyway, such as:
- a couch to 5K
- refine our surfing technique. We could definitely use a few more lessons.
- agility (we have so many trainers in our area- should be easy)
- urban mushing
