    Default Outside dog for the first time

    I've had Banjo for about 10 months and today is the first time ever that I locked her outside. For about 3 hours. And I feel really bad about it! Even though it is a gorgeous autumn day, she has a fresh bone, a big rawhide chew and a treat ball, a bed in the garage, one in a sunny spot outside and one in the laundry!!! I am such a softy. I'm going to end up giving her anxiety issues if I don't stop fussing over her this much.

    I only locked her outside because I didn't have the heart to lock the foster cat who is not allowed outside into the bedroom. He looked so content lying on the kitchen chair in the sun.

    Dogs adapt pretty quickly. Lol at giving anxiety issues. They adapt to fussing as well!

    Mine was a come and go as you please dog, and now outside, well actually came and go backyard to under the house, no problems.
    PS I still dote upon, and make a fuss, make sure she got her blanket on when it's cold etc lol.

    Hey Beau, great to hear from you again. Please give Star a hug for me.

    Beloz, don't feel guilty. She probably loved it. I have to juggle dog,cat and bird time in my home. All have their share..even me, with none inside (well I meant the birds are still inside but back in their cage.)

    Feel guilty!! I cannot believe you locked Banjo outside! and for hours.. not minutes!!
    I have to lock mine outside now that he has consumed some of my furniture since it tastes better than his toys and bones. I *hate* it.
    Makes me feel guilty and it makes me do things that no one knows I do... like making my husband stay home while I take my son places (just so the dog doesn't have to stay outside etc). Like speeding home from shopping so he doesn't stay one minute longer than he needs to outside.
    You absolutely should feel guilty because misery loves company and *I* feel better about you leaving your inside dog outside.
    I also try to offset it by finding ways I can super indulge him - such as allowing him to sleep in my son's bed at night (they both sleep so much better that way).

    I hate leaving him outside when we are not home, he makes me feel better about it by ruining my reticulation system - hard to feel sorry for him then.

    It is all underground.. he is just pulling the sprinklers and with it the pipes that are connecting it.. then he chops them bit by bit by bit. I wish Kong made furniture and reticulation!

    Beloz - It is kinda like being a parent, no matter what you do - you feel guilty about it.
    Difference is - dogs will never walk behind you reminding you how you messed them up LOL

    Obviously you don't have a dog that back chats all the time - even though he knows he is in the wrong !

    Yes Beloz - you should feel really guilty !
