Ok, I think im calm. And its time for a vent
Roly goes for a walk every second day because he gets too exhausted and sore. Today was Roly's walk day.
So I decided to ride my bike to my horse Wiley's. When Roly slows down, I put him in the basket at the front.
I get to Wileys, he sees me and trots away
He never *runs* away from me. He usually comes to me. Great, off to a good start. So I follow him around the paddock for about 10 friggin minutes. Everytime I get about 3 metres away, he gallops down the other end. I finally catch him.
Then, as we're walking down to the wash bay, Roly comes out of the bushes and Wiles gets a fright and starts dancing around being an absolute idiot, trying to push me around, pulling away from me. I used the end of the rope and gave him a big whack on the chest with it. He does a bit more dancing and then he's finally settled.
Now, wheres Lady? Next to me. Wheres Roly?
I call him for about 4 minutes, walking around.
And where is he? Hiding under a car, literally ignoring me. I walk over to the car, kneel down and gently call him, he turns his back to me
Great, and im still holding the damn horse. I let Wiley go and he starts eating grass, I reach under the car and click my fingers. He still ignores me sooooo I grab him by the scruff and literally pull him out, he squeels and Wiley gets a fright and takes off
Now at this point, I would have put Roly on a lead, but I left it at the front gate. So I have to carry Roly to go and get Wiley.
Wiley's in the corner eating grass, as I get closer to him, Roly starts squirming and whinning and I do not want Wiley running off on me again, so I put him on the ground and told him too stay. I walk slowly up to Wiley, grab him, turn around, and Roly is running away!!!!
I called him nicely, he turned around facing me, I knelt on the ground and called him again, and he BOLTED back to the car.
OH MY EFFING GOD!
So me and Wiley(all this time Lady is being a perfect darling and is at my heel) we run(well Wiley trots) after Roly and he runs out the gate and is heading to the road where cars are driving at 100ks. I stop, and let Wiley go cause I really don't care if he runs back to the corner at this stage. I call him again in a happy friendly tone and slowly walk towards him, and the worst part is he knows he was being naughty cause he slowly slunk towards me. I grab him again and carry him and lead Wiley all the way to the wash bay. And for a 6 kg dog, he feels heavy after 3 minutes of carrying.
I put Roly in the yard for kids, wash Wiley's cut and go get Roly, let him out. Runs straight under a float. Again, I have to drag him out.
I carry him all the way back to the paddock and have to put anticeptic on Wiles cut. As soon as Roly's feet hit the ground he attempts to run away again
So I put him in the shed.
I was SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO angry because he is NEVER like this. He never ignores me, he is never scared of Wiley, and he never runs away.
For what was meant to take 15 minutes, it turned into 50 minutes
Looks like he's lost lead privalges on the 30 acre farm too now.
Why are my dogs so damn disobediant
Anyway, thanks for reading...
