I'm moved into my parent's house while reassessing my life.
Better mood today so far.
I chatted with two friends yesterday, so maybe that helped,
I also got Chandler out for an hour long walk this morning,
so we've both exercised.
I decided to try him on the shorter flexi lead, as I was wondering if some
of the nervousness I've been seeing in him was due
to not being able to maneuver on the 6 ft lead.
It seemed to work a bit, so I'll try using the flexi for a while.
At the least, if he starts at some noise and I just keep on going,
maybe he'll get the idea that he's being silly.
I'm otherwise pleased that Chandler has been behaving so well
while the cats are outside for their "walk".
He's been leaving them alone when I tell him to
and mostly lying around in the grass while I watch the cats.
The only slight problem I have is that he tends to want to
charge in when they are stalking rodents, or if the cats start running.
But he took verbal corrections very well today for such misbehavior
and lied down when I told him to.
The books are unpacked, and I've been sorting through
all my stuff to see what I can clean out.
Cleaning out books is tough, but I keep telling myself
I'll have more shelf space to buy MORE when I finally move out
and get my big bookcases back.
