I just got this cute picture of Sally (Daffy) who lives in Bakersfield with Heather and her family. Heather says she is doing very well. Still some issues with the submissive peeing when she gets really excited, but hopefully she will outgrow that. It is a very common problem for girls (and some boys) and they usually outgrow it, but it is a pain until then. Ruby just started doing it occasionally. And Sally has also had a slight rash on her belly, the vet gave her some antibiotics that worked, but then when she was done with the pills, it came back. So Heather tried just putting some hydrocortisone on it and she said that seemed to work and clear it up. She also said she is using the "How to Raise The Perfect Dog" book by Ceasar Milan and it is really helping. Even Aly, who is only 5 years old, is able to walk Sally without her pulling on the leash. That is awesome. She also knows sit, stay, shake, comes when she is called and is learning to "leave it". Good job Rooke family! You are inspiring me to do some more work with Ruby! I haven't even started on shake yet! And just another note - if anybody has to travel and has a pup that gets car sick, dramamine works. Of course reduce the dosage accordingly, but it has certainly helped us. Thanks for the picture Heather!
