Advice Needed . . . A dog that doesn't like Bikes

Hello All,

This is Liz, and I am writing because I need advice! We have a Rhodesian Ridgeback with a "crazy" bad habit, she hates bikes. She goes nuts, anytime someone comes by us on a bike, which is completely embarrassing. I am sure I am the lady on the walking/biking trail, with the crazy dog that people talk about. Worst of all, I make dog treats, my dogs are suppose to be extra well behaved because I am around dogs all the time, Right! WRONG, she is out of control, and I am afraid one of these days she is going to jump at someone, scare them and make them fall off their bike. It will be awful!

I looked online, to check the Dog Whisperers schedule and he is only taking cases for the next season, in Colorado Springs and Southern California. I figured if we sent in a video, we would forsure make the cut. However, we are Kansas City, so the Dog Whisperer is out. I am hoping that one of you will have words of wisdom for us . . . or be willing to ride your bike by Nati several times until she breaks her habit! Let me know if your interested!

Please help! I am afraid we might be the first family banned from the walk/bike trail! If I have met-up with any of you, I apologize now for our previous meeting and ahead of time should we meet on the trail!

The Monster Mash!

What do a 3 lb. cow and a land shark have in common?

They both had a spooktacular time at our 2nd annual Hounded Howl-o-ween Party! We also had the opportunity to see Zoe transform from a lady bug last year to a cute little pea pod in 2009, Miss Jeter was a skittish little squirrel complete with an acorn and last but not least we had lobster at lunch! Yep, J.B. Farwell (Jeter’s Boyfriend) attended his first dog party ever and did so as a lobster.

I think I can speak for everyone at the party when I say that we all had a GRRReat time! That includes us owners, for it’s not every day that we see a Lobster chasing a Shark in a backyard or a pea pod that is bigger than a cow! We made sure there was a lot of running, chasing and sniffing during the party. This way, we could successfully send each dog home completely tuckered and with some yummy treats! Mission accomplished.

Don’t Forget the Dog would like to thank all of you for attending our Hounded Howl-o-ween Party and we hope you had a great time! For those of you that couldn’t make it, please send us pictures of your dogs in costume.

We look forward to seeing you next Howl-o-ween!
