Well, Rassilon has finished his course of anti-biotics and the improvements are incredible.
He has started to play with his toys, even catching them when I throw them to him. Before he just ran away. He not only catches them but shakes them, throws them around and even takes them on a zoomie around the garden.
Even better, (sort of), he has started to bark when he wants to go outside. I say it is sort of better because it isn’t that thrilling when he wants to go out at 2.00 in the morning. But it is a great step forward in behavior.
The only problem is that any toys you give him end up in the garden.
The other day I gave him some pork chip treats before I went to work and they were still there when I got home. For tea I had toasted chilli bean sandwiches and I left one on the plate. The next morning when I got up all the port chips were gone as was the chilli bean sandwich. I am not surprised that Rassilon didn’t eat the treats when I was at work because my Doberman, Kia, wouldn’t eat when she was alone either, and would wait till I got home to eat any treats left for her.
Anyway, a simple course of tablets has helped Rassilon improve and become more like the dog I want, not a nervous wreck like he was, mind you, when we go to my mothers place he still keeps an eye on the ceiling fans!
