Dog Shall Not Pass

My one cat rules things here. She means to keep up our standards. Dog will not challenge her.

He WILL take on a 200 pound man during IGP training. Great grips. Confidence. Power. Courage.

Then he runs into this 8 pound cat.

She traps him up stairs. She will chase him and corner him on a bed. She will just sit there and stare. He will not pass!!

He will pester her.. put his nose where it does not belong (anywhere within 2 inches of her). She will turn.. and it is game ON.

The other day I took an important call from my vet.. She chased him upstairs then trapped him on a bed and he was whimpering about it. Worse than two kids!

BOTH ended up in a "time out." Yes. A cat in a time out.

We need SPRING and we need more outside (not the cat, she is indoors). Spring shows up for a day then say, "Oh no. Just kidding.. Still Winter."

I have always said a bored dog will "find something to do" and you may not like it.

Bored cat AND bored dog.. just trouble. I think they both buy into the game. I am not complaining as long as they don't destroy the house. They are certainly amusing and they do keep things interesting!

(They are never left alone loose in the house unsupervised.. for their safety).

When I had my oversize black lab, he was inclined to chase cats. We took him to visit my sister in Missouri who had a cat and at least four dogs. The cat was not in the least intimidated by any dog. The first time my dog saw the cat, he charged full-bore, but stopped short when he realized the cat was not going to move. The cat (who was not particularly large) didn't hiss, bare his fangs or even raise a paw. He just stared him down.

My dog looked at me ("please tell me what's going on here") then the cat then me again and then walked away - a bit despondent. He never chased another cat.

I am a dog person for life, but I have tremendous respect for cats.
