Mommy here: Zero thinks I rescued him, but he's wrong. Zero rescued me. I know it sounds clichΓ©, but hear me out... This summer my heart was shattered into a million irreparable pieces when my big brother, my best friend, passed away unexpectedly. The world, as I knew it, dissolved. Months later, when I finally got the courage to peek out of my personal hell, I decided to surround myself with only love. I directed the donations made in my brother's name to an organization that he, a dog lover and a neuroscientist, would support: @rescuedogsrocknyc. I chose RDR because of their commitment to high trauma medical cases, something Ian always revered. Somewhere in South Carolina, RDR vet partners were busy rescuing a litter of puppies, now in need of warm homes and open hearts. I gave my best puppy eyes to my beau, and we drove to meet the rescue team at a New Jersey rest stop. This runny-nosed pup snuggled into my arms at both of our most vulnerable moments; neither of us trusting the world very much, we chose to trust each other. I love you, baby Zero. You are my rescue hero. πŸΎπŸ‘»

Umm, so I was stuffed into this Christmas sweater today. I was cool with it, but it was a bit snug. For the record, I believe it ran small. It can't be me!! But I think it brings out my eyes! Don't you agree? #imreadyforchristmas #santascoming

Quite often we inadvertently train the very behaviors that frustrate us. We do this by adding drama and accidentally turning it into a party.

Your puppy is bored so she grabs one of your tennis shoes to chew on. Instead of just nonchalantly interrupting her and helping her find an appropriate chewing options, we turn it into a party. We run across the room, while we're yelling give me that shoe, and then we make a big fuss about taking it away. We think we punished inappropriate behavior but our puppy is thinking wow, next time I'm bored I'll grab a shoe and she'll come play with me.

The same is often true with jumping. Instead of ignoring the jumping and walking away, we start yelling "No don't jump!" as we are pushing the dog off and moving all around.Β  You think you're punishing your puppy. Your puppy is thinking, wow, next time I want to have a party I'll just jump on her leg.

So, pay attention to how and when you interact with your puppy. Try to eliminate or at least minimize drama. Because the more you react to a situation the more likely that situation is going to play out over and over and over again.
