Tatum has a problem I really need to work on. Okay okay… it’s really the Mum that has the problem. The problem is, the Mum (me) is a clutz, and sometimes drops the flexi leash when I’m walking the dogs.

None of my dogs care.. they drag the bouncing, noisy thing behind them without a care, and come back when I call them.

Tatum, on the other hand, gets very, very afraid when she drags the flexi leash. And so at home I need to have a dog (not her, she is too afraid) drag it around a little bit at a time, so she realizes that it won’t hurt her.

She is so sound sensitive. That girl would be a terror, afraid of nothing, had she been socialized as a puppy!
