Get yourself a good dog.

When you live on a farm or, what I should call, a farmette because our place is just barely big enough to be called a big lot.  But, that's beside the point.  What I'm trying to tell you is that when you live in the country you need a good dog.  An obedient dog.  A hard working dog.  A dog that respects your authority and knows you are his master.  He fears you, but loves you.  He won't do anything to disappoint you.  He is completely loyal now and forever.  He obeys your every command.


I'll let you know when I get a dog like that.


Hi! I'm Jennie . . . said...

Ha ha ha . . . I have FOUR dogs that obey me like that. And three of them are supposed to be working farm dogs by breed & nature! I've learned that to get the Aussie and the Border Collie to chase the goats back in the fence, I should yell, "Don't chase the goats."

Our non-farm working yellow lab will literally look at my husband as if to double check with him that I am giving him a valid command before he will do what I say. I swear my husband trained him to do that but he swears the dog does it on his own.

Now my children are starting to ignore my commands. I have resigned myself to the fact that I have been cleverly outnumbered. They have not out-witted me yet! I still make the food and more importantly, do the laundry. She who controls the laundry (and hence clean underwear) controls the world!

Hmm, maybe you could get Cesar Milan from Dog Whisper could come out to your place and get him to train you I mean train Preacher.

I love that dog. Has he stopped eating the chickens?

We have a puppy and I know already that he controls us, not us controling him.
As a child we had Shepards and my parents raised rabbits. My brother left the gate unlatched and when we got up the next day all 32 rabbits were let's just say deceased. I still can't look at a rabbit with out feeling like I'm going to cry.

Too funny! My parents own a farm and I know my Dad would love a good "farm dog." Instead they inherited a little yapper.

We never had a dog when I was younger. I think that's because my parents had 6 children that obeyed as well as your dog. lol

I wish I could email you, because I would send you a picture of one of my dogs. I swear to you my dog could be your dogs twin! I did a double take looking at your video. They look almost identical. That's...funny.
