Being Disciplined

I don't think anybody likes to be disciplined...it is a very necessary part of living but it is not a very pleasant part..the outcome is beneficial if we listen and yield to wise discipline...with all of that said..this is an absolutely laugh out loud picture........



I am sure dear hubby is saying TULA, NO !!!!!!!!!   and you see the look on her face.( she is the one on the far left)...LOL  she is NOT listening much less going to do what he is saying!  this is an every day occurrence in our household..  she is wide open, full speed ahead, all of the time...she will chase after the ball until she passes out if we let her...and trying to get her to lie down so the other 3 can have a turn with the ball, well....that is what this scene is all about...TAKE TURNS!!!...hahahahaha...she is 4 years old and we adore this girl..  oh, the expressions she has...and every night at 9 o'clock she jumps up on the ottoman near my feet, lays her head on the coffee table glass and goes to sleep...EVERY NIGHT!!  at the same time.....
but....one thing she is NOT is disciplined....we have tried so many things...and if she wants to do it, she will find a way......(she was  an only child for a while and from a singleton litter)  probably explains a lot...LOL

Oh well, we love her in spite of her undisciplined ways but it would be so much nicer if she would just yield to us....

a few more from the same scenario......it got better after she chilled...I could write a book about life with Tula..

trying to explain to them about sharing the ball

success..someone besides Tula got the ball

Bo's proud moment

Tula's eagle eye on the ball...ALWAYS
.
I hope you enjoyed this story about Tula...since we have an empty nest, dogs become more like people to us...

we realize they aren't, but they fill some of the places where children used to be..and they are a real joy to us...

Thank you for stopping by today and I hope to see you again soon...

  1. Excellent lesson on discipline. I had so many lofty plans when I retired. Some I do carry out daily some not. Joe is training our puppy, Shelley, so far so good.
