Going, and going and going

The other day, I got an emergency text from Mom. Dad was still away moose hunting, and she got stuck at work longer than she'd planned. She needed someone to go up to loose and feed the wild ones.
With Dad away, they are a little more on edge, and a little harder to control. Especially by me, who they under no circumstances view as an authority figure of any kind.

Lovely Lady isn't too bad,
But Joker Jem....
Is an absolute fool. Of course, she's not even a year yet. But when she gets too out of hand, Mom discovered a way to get her back under control pretty quick...
Just shake a metal can with a few pennies in it. Seriously, this is my new best friend! It works like a charm.  On shake and she stops jumping and grabbing.

She's not a bad dog... mostly, she just needs a little extra help to wear her out...
Lady does what she can, but she's an old girl and tires out quickly.
Where Jem is like the Energizer Bunny....
A very silly Energizer Bunny.

We had two Labs across the street from us. They remained idiots for about 3 years. I don't think the two pit-bull mixes next door will EVER grow up. LOL

Lady and Gem sure are adorable! Glad you were able to let them out.

I've used that can trick before on the cats when they were getting too rough with each other. It does work.
Dogs have way too much energy for me anymore. The Mister and I both agree Pup has to be the last and she's just a bitty thing. I can't even imagine keeping up with the big guys.
