Forum Rules
1. Here we prefer clarity to agreement. Obviously not everyone is going to agree on a topic; here we prefer to talk out our differences in a respectful manner to ensure mutual understanding and respect.
2. Read the Stickies and Announcements. Each sub-forum may have specific rules which trump the Forum Rules in cases where there may be conflicting information. Read the rules of each board before you post so that you are clear on the expectations of the staff.
3. Respect ALL Staff and Admins. These people volunteer of their time and MUST be respected as well as their word adhered to. They are responsible for maintaining a free, open, clear and organized forum. Anyone found to be openly undermining any official ruling by a staff member will be warned.
4. Signatures: One picture only and no links. Images: To keep the forum looking neat and tidy, we ask that members insert just one picture only in their signatures. The picture should be no more than 200x500 pixels and should be of an appropriate subject, for example, your dogs and their names. Should you need assistance creating an appropriate signature, please PM an Admin and we would be happy to help! This is to ensure that signatures remain a welcome addition to our forum instead of a cumbersome distraction. Links: Hyperlinks in signatures--unless to a personal blog or photo stream of your dogs (like Flckr or Piscasa, for example)--are strictly prohibited. Please PM a staff member with any questions or concerns regarding this rule.

Memorial Day Weekend with Ami:  The Good, The Bad and the WTF Empty
PostSubject: Memorial Day Weekend with Ami: The Good, The Bad and the WTF   Memorial Day Weekend with Ami:  The Good, The Bad and the WTF EmptyMon May 26, 2014 11:46 am

It was Glassfest this weekend plus the opening day weekend for Eldridge Park that has a dog park.

The Good:  There was a free concert at Eldridge Park Sat. night - thought we would take Ami for a romp in the dog park and we could enjoy the concert.  Finally, a dog young enough and big enough to really play with the Beastie Boy!  A german shephard-pit bull cross.  Very cute dog and wonderfully sweet, playful disposition.  Which is good 'cause my boy was...indiscreet and mounted him several times Embarassed  They played, they ran, they jumped..lots of fun.  Then there was this smaller medium sized-dog, forget what. but very shy, scared.  And persnickety.  Ami went up to play and she did a very growly, snappy thing which, I am glad to say, Ami respected with the same attitude the gents in my family did when PMS was the name of the game:  Later, Jack, I'm outta here!!

Later, listening to the concert, hubby dragged me up to dance with a slow dance - with Ami on leash!  I hate public dancing, especially since there was only 1 other lone man dancing around in front of the crowd.  Before I knew what was happening, Ami was standing up on his hind legs, dancing with the lone man and licking his face...and the crowd went wild with applause and laughter Laughing 

And we even later got complimented on how well-behaved Ami was - asked if he had been to obedience scratch   I was confused, very confused.  My dog?  My jumping, rambunctious, goofy, all over the place at home dog?  

The Bad:  My bad.   Bad Mommy.  Over in Corning, there were fireworks on the river.  Too far to take Ami home and go back so we took Ami with us - the plan was, if Ami was freaked, I would take him back to the car (car was only 100 yards away, fortunately.)  After waiting interminably for the show to start, and Ami getting antsy-bored, I realized he had not had water in over an hour so headed to car for a drink.  On the way there, finally, the fireworks started - and the big boy, appropriate response to bombs going off behind him, wanted to take off...

WTF:  I just wanted him to feel safe, so ran with him to car, opened back door and he bolted in...I jumped in the back to keep him company and soothe him, if necessary.  Now, we have a sheet over the front seat backs to control hair, and a dog hammock that attaches to the head rests of the front seats and to the child seat latches on the back deck.  This blocks the open space between the seats and makes sort of a cubby hole for Mr. Dog.  Somehow, he managed to leap over the hammock and into the front driver's seat leaving me in back.  It had been raining, dog was wet, no seat protection in the front...husband very picky about his cars.  I could not coax Ami to hop back into the back seat, so thought I'd attach his tether to his leash, get out and take him out the front door and put him in the back...

Wrong:  I had the child locks engaged so Ami could not accidentally open door.  I was stuck in the back.  And no way was I going to fit hopping over the seats with Ami in front.  I tried knocking on the window to get the attention of the people behind the car, but they just politely moved over so I could see the fireworks better Rolling Eyes So there I sat Evil or Very Mad 

At the end of the show, husband comes back to the car...opens the driver side door confused   And there sits Ami, cool as a cucumber.   And where is Mommy scratch   Trapped in the back seat!

At least husband had a good laugh.  And a wet fanny by the time we were home lol!

What a great day! Glad to see Ami and family had a fun celebration. Smile

Yeah - Ami tends to do that - husband says he's a MAJOR babe magnet and too bad he didn't know about that 30 yrs ago Laughing I'm just soooo grateful Mr. Ami is so well behaved in public.
