The Breaking Of Molly.....

So this morning I was having a good laugh at princessblondies expense regarding her failed little foray into the world of dog grooming... Meave made sure she reminded me of one my "Bad Dad" moments in the raising of puppies.....







At one point or another I'm sure most of you have heard me make reference to Molly The Hellspawn, there she is in all her ceiling staring glory. We have 3 dogs, two JR Terriers and Cocker Spaniel. The other two are for the most part normal relatively well behaved dogs. Lucy the other JRT can be a little bit forcefull when it comes to wanting to play but that's the breed, they're really energetic and she settles down if you tell her too. Well when Lucy was young I got her one of those laser pointers because the advertising promised hours and hours of fun and for Lucy it was. She would go a little spazzy when she heard keys but we always attributed that to the laser pointer being on that and she was getting excited cuz she thought it was play time. So naturally when we got Molly I went looking for the laser and played with her as well... Well after about the second play time with it, we noticed something different. Molly would sit for HOURS staring at the ceiling and crying because she wanted the laser to come back. So Jen went looking and found a JRT community in LJ. Buried in there was a piece about how lasers are BAAAAD for certain breeds of dogs because they develop OCD as a result... I know this sounds like complete and utter bullshit but a year and a half later without the laser Molly still sits and stares at the walls pretty well all day long looking for the laser.... Meave will back me up on this one I'm sure..... I'm still kinda pissed that nowhere on the literature for those things they don't warn you about that shit (and the one I got was specifically marketted for pet owners).... but ya, that is my "Bad Dad" pet owner story.....

Remember if you have a dog Laser pointers can be REALLY bad!!!
