Only 3 more days left!

OK..only 3 more days and that trainer kid comes back.Now we have a disclaimer..We have nothing against trainers..They are fabulous people and do wonderful things with dogs...We just don't want to do those things(PL2.. which is why you are getting one little ones....)I mean doesn't EVERYONE bark if a leaf falls three towns away?? And bark and go CRAZY and jump all over people when the door bell rings?? And have "issues" if you know what I mean with their siblings?? WHAT IS THE BIG DEAL?????????

Archie has been wracking his brain( notice I said brain and not brains...also you can see one of his itchy spots is gettting all better..)

I "invited" him into my crate so we could have some top secret discussions about this upcoming event.....
Then he "invited" me into one of his 3000 beds so we could talk some more......

It's no good....We can not come up with a thing... We are seriously thinking of taking up an offer Eric gave us to take all our beds and go live in his shed...But only if our toy chest will fit..Archie thinks he will be too far away from PL1+2 and he doesn't think he can do it.... and I don't think I could either.......

It's all too daunting......

Trainers sound like serious business. My angel brother had to go to a doggie shrink a couple of times which me thinks is like a trainer. Me hears that made him more lovable so maybe you should listen to the trainer.

P.S. Me barks at leafs too. Levi

Lorenza said...

Hi, Agatha and Archie!
Maybe is not too bad you had a trainer. Cooperate and he will go away soon!
Good luck!
Kisses and hugs

I think that taking a nap is a good idea. You must sleep on it.

You both are always welcome here, but you'll have to bring you beds since I only have one, but I do have a lot of toys that we can all play with. As far as trainers go, I'm the trainer here. I have them under my paw, right where I want them.

Koobuss Kisses,

pee ess Lorenza really does have a good idea there.

Crikey I don't hold much hope for you escaping the trainer pals. Looks like you're going to be stuck with him. I was going to invite you here but it's even further than Eric's place.
Good luck with it.

Faya said...

Oh I am so sorry....

T - E - R - R - I - E - R !!!!

Poopsie aka Blue said...

Looks as though this awful training thingy has resolved any sibling issues - certainly seems to have brought you two closer together!

Love, pats & pets

The Musketeers said...

It sounds like as if you have heaps of DOG BED ! BOL ! Oh I am not the one driving ! It's Ebi ! haha !


Molly the Airedale said...

We jump on people when they enter our house and if mom gets REAL mad out comes the spray bottle with water! Maybe the trailer would like a spritzer?!
We think it's so cool that the two of you share a bed! We do that about twice a year if we're lucky! Mitch snores and smells - who wants to sleep with him?!

Love ya lots,
Maggie and Mitch

Princess Patches said...

We also bark at leaves...and Woodpeckers pecking someone's house 3 blocks away...and mosquitos flying by in the next town. Yeah, we also jump on people who come into our house. We get the dreaded squirt bottle on a daily basis. We also have a barking collar, but we found out that it only works if some hooman remembers to put it on one of us. Silly hoomans! Good luck with your trainer!

Hey, one way to teach your PLs is to STOP greeting them when they get home. !!! HAH!!! Then they would really miss it.
We know this because our Maria was the ring leader in our Group Excessive Greeting Disorder. Last night they came home from an art opening and we were silent.

After all those years of yelling at us to be quiet, well, last night they just sat down and leaked rivers from their eyes which we licked.

trying to wag, we're the whippets

Gus said...

oh my...well, Teka says, "do what the trainer says. Do what the PLs say when the trainer is watching" When he has been gone for a couple of days. Revert. We need jobs for small business people, ya know. "

I'm not sure that is an honest approach, but it works for her.

I, Jake the elder, had a serious encounter with a trainer when I was a wee lad. Emilio of the steel-toed boots. He taught me sit and off and out -- but when he got to heel, he threw up his hands and said I was the stubbornest dog he had ever seen -- incluing many larger and allegedly fiercer types. Our Mom, bless her heart, decided that she didn't care if I ever learned to heel if it meant jerking my neck around until I was like a bobblehead. And so we nver saw Emilio again...

Being the professorial sort, I have taight myself lots of things Emilio never envisioned -- like how to ask for breakfast and dinner, how to use Dad's computer, how to break into wine bottle containers that had a secret stash of chocolate, how to sit nicely at the table, how to greet people and make them feel welcome -- and what it means when Mom puts on her shoes or when both Mom and Dogdad get ready to go out.

What I learned from this lesson that perhaps you can use to good advantage is LEARN NOTHING THE TRAINER DEMANDS. BE STUBBORN. BE TERRIERS.

Are we not meant to bark at anything suspicious, be it a leaf of a UPS truck?

I'm sure your PL1 and PL2 will get the message.

Keep us posted!!!

Your friend in wirefoxterrierism,


Joe Stains said...

I am still offering to mail him some poop to warn him off. The CEO at Mom's job got a 'dog whisperer' to come to his house to train the dogs to not go nuts when people came over. He said it totally worked. WHATEVER

Lizzy said...

Agatha, Archie!

Wow, this certainly does sound serious... I hope you guys can figure out a good plan... What's wrong with being how you are, anyway? Who needs a trainer?! WE are the trainers around here.


Sunny,Scooter, (sometimes Jamie) said...

Hmmm. Unless you are ready to run away from home, sounds like you are stuck with this trainer dude. You are welcome to come here to our house to hide out. Short of that, it must be grin and bear it time....(and no, we don't mean bare your teeth! That would get you in big trouble!)

Sophie Brador said...

You can come live in my laundry room, and there's a big dead end hallway right there too, where you can store your toy chest. You won't be as far from your PLs, but you won't be near that trainer kid. Just let me know when you cross the border.


the many Bs said...

we feel for you, kiddos. of course, you should be barking if a leaf falls off a tree in the next state. who else is gonna bark if we don't???? training is such a lot of ugly work and it is brain washing. a dog needs to be a dog and humans need to adapt. right!!!

you can come & live with us, but we think your PLs would miss you too much. they are just doing what they think is best for you (really for THEM). maybe you should just play along and humor your PLs, since they don't know any better.

Gus, Louie and Callie said...

We do that stuff too. Bark at everyone that rings the doorbell. Mom is thinking of putting up a sign "Out of Order" Of course Mom says I maybe the cause of all the barking since I am the only one that can actually hear the doorbell ring..

Eric said...

Pals, I'll move my shed to the bottom of your garden. How's that? Plenty of room for a toy chest or twenty in it too. And not so far from the PL's.

Looks like the sibby thing is resolved anyway...and if you learn not to bark and go crazy at the door bell can you tell Mom? But me thinks only pawlite to greet visitors so nicely..
Wiry wags, Eric xxx

Amber-Mae said...

I agree with what Lorenza said. If you cooperate with the trainer & do what he tells you to do, then everything will be done soon & he will go away. Just pretend to be good dogs while he's handling you guys & once he's gone, you can start your coo-coo stuff again! That's how you do it!

Agatha and Archie

We wish you well with the trainer person. We just hope it is not too traumatic for you and you don't become all confused and fuddled and end up sleeping in the wrong beds and eating out of the wrong bowls and chewing the wrong toys!!!

Let us know how you get on you poor things.

Molly and Taffy

Dexter said...

I think your disguises will work just fine. You don't look anything like yourselves.

On the other hand, it appears that the threat of the trainer has compelled you two to spend more together time. Was that PL's plan all along?


Mr. T-Bone Beasley said...

Do you think there is a little more room on the bed for me to join? You guys look awesomely comfy!!!

Gobble Gobble!
