Okay, I know it's been a while since I've checked in or written a blog. Things have been kind of crazy around my neck of the woods. Angel and Tia are both doing great! Tia (cat) will be 1 in March! And I can't believe how much Angel has grown! She's still kind of skinny, but has grown taller already and starting to fill out more.
We have had some trouble with my next door neighbor. She apparently called Animal Control because she thought I wasn't feeding Angel. Instead of talking to me and letting me explain everything, she immediately assumed the worst. So Animal Control did their investigation in which I showed proof that my little doggie is under vet care, UTD on shots, IS getting food, and has access to water. I also had statements from other neighbors, as well as the vet herself. So the investigation was dropped, thankfully! I did make a few improvements so NO ONE else believes what this lady believed. Since Angel likes to spend a majority of her time outdoors, I bought her a little dog house to go on the patio so she will have a nice place to nap, as well as a 4 gallon feeder & also a 4 gallon water bottle w/bowl. That way no one can even think she isn't getting treated right. (I replaced the "regular" food & water dishes)
Since we go walking every day, and the vet said it is okay to start working on Angel's muscle development, I bought her a doggie backpack to carry her water, treats, and disposal poop bags. She wasn't too sure about it at first but after some time she got used to it and doesn't mind at all. I am also working on her trust issues as well as her ability to use her nose and ears for "problem solving" instead of just her eyes. It's where you make it so the dog cannot see, and they have to find you using smell & hearing. (YOU have to be careful and start off in an area where there is nothing the dog can run into!!!) Angel seems to love this game and is getting very good about finding me.
Question: how can you train a dog to play frisbee?

Hate nosey neighbors! But at least now everyone knows that you are giving her the best in life! Start frisbee training by seeing if she's interested in it. Waive it in front of her to get her interested, then toss one. See if she chases it. If she does, call her name and waive/toss another one, etc. Good luck! She's so lucky to have you and Tia!:)
