|Yup thats me. I have 3 dogs plus one more just for fun.
I spayed Sabi(oh the horror) and I haven't spayed Shadow (terrible woman I am) and I BREED Bud (what a wretched person I am) or rather I allow breeders who have compatible lines to use him (that's even worse).
My dogs never go to the dog park (I live in one)are seldom socialized (poor deprived babies)and are allowed to play only where I choose.
I feed them a food with(gasp)corn in it and I vaccinate(poison) but on my schedule not the vets (just irresponsible). AND I give them table scraps (oh no!)
And the worst is yet to come. I have no training style!
I know, I know call it a fear of commitment I just can't decide which one of my dogs I want to ruin. Sabi was such a doll and mastered manners with no training but sucks at obedience and is conversationally trained. Bud is the "walk softly" dog. Star obedience but you need a firm hand and he has no common sense. Both of them use english, german and hand signs. And then there is Shadow who is totally instinctive. Any commands have to be coaxed, I cannot correct so I redirect, so sensitive that a jaw or hand clenched in frustration will send her into a frenzy. I just don't know which one I don't care about.
And you know once I made a mistake. I tried to be like the perfect people who never make mistakes but alas I failed. I do not understand how the hundreds of dogs that have gone through my home have survived.
I thought my dogs were happy, they certainly look happy as they fetch me from my warm bed every morning to go for three seperate walks and then come home finally and cook breakfast, for them not me. They seem downright gleeful as I walk around the yard bag in hand and pick up poop and the vacum that I run for 40 minutes everyday seemed vastly amusing. But I have been educated! These dogs are miserable no doubt about it. They need to socialize apparently there are not enough of them here. They need to be trained properly, in a class, by a trainer who has a METHOD. They need much more expensive food and if I cannot afford that they should definitely be rehomed because I am irresponsible clearly. No it doesn't matter if they have allergies or are sensitive to some things. All that matters is it can't have corn. Oh and I work sometimes all day, if I loved my dogs I would stop that. Clearly they are suffering when I leave them all day. I can tell by the dog hair on the couch and the nose prints on the TV. The first step is admitting you have a problem. I am a horrible dog owner.
