Vinny Goombats

There are no free rides in this life, even for an adorable Schnoodle named Mr. Wilson. He has to earn his keep like the rest of us, and has decided that it is his responsibility as Head of Security to keep our business safe from all intruders. Except, of course, if the intruder is an Apple Headed Chiwawa named Vinny Goombats, then it's okay. But even Schnoodles feel the call of the wild when their territory in impinged upon, and that cute little bark of his becomes a menacing roar, and poor old Vinny Goombats, all one and a half pounds of him has to run for the shelter of Cheryl's feet.

But all is well in the world of the dogs, just a little adjustment in pack heirarchy now and then and everything works out fine.

It is good to give your dog purpose, and a feeling of accomplishment. All living beings thrive on purposeful, productive achievement, and dogs are no different. I do not believe in having dogs do tricks for their meals, but I do insist they sit like ladies and gentlemen when their dinner is served, and wait for the proper cue to eat. It takes a while to train them to not go ape at suppertime, but the feeling of accomplishment that comes from following commands, and doing a good job before feasting keeps the dog engaged, and happy, and willing to learn new things.


  1. I agree whole-heartedly with your last sentence, and I'm glad that the pack heirarchy is A-OK now!
