Ok Rocky found a new thing BUGS! Now with warm weather there are these gross little black bugs flying around our heads. I cant stand it and neither can Rocky. He starts flying through the air snapping at the bugs while we are walking. Is there anyway to stop that. I have been saying leave it. He looks at me and stops but will start up again.You hear his teeth chomp and all. The only thing Im worried about if is someone is walking by or the kids walking close to us from the bus might think he is snapping at them. Will he just get use to the fact bugs fly around all summer?

Training training training....

It's hard to anticipate his jumping I'm sure, but try to be extra aware for a while and you can break him of the behavior.

Inside me is a thin woman trying to get out. I usually shut the bitch up with a martini.

My friend and her dog hunt flies together in the summer. It's rediculous . . .

Yes it is almost imposible to anticipate. bug flies in fron of his face and he's chomping at it. I will do my best. Maybe he will just get use to it.
