What to do when 1. your dog will not go out in the rain and Washington State is living up to it’s reputation that it rains a lot here, and 2. she has decided that
she was breed to hunt. The rain ,I can’t do anything about. it’s her choice not to go out. I am willing to. It’s not raining that hard and it is actually refreshing. the hunt instinct
is another matter. Ever since she saw that one deer, she has been obsessed. to make matters worse, we-found prints of a raccoon on the deck. She has become manic about that. I actually had to give her a calming chew so that I could get some rest. She was determined to catch that critter . She paced, she scratched the door,she stuck her nose under my arm, just in case I didn’t notice her antics. When I did take her out, nose to ground, she followed a scent
to my daughter in laws beautiful flower garden. A raccoon could get under the fenced in garden, but not a dog, even a small one. poor Dixie.Life is hard some times and you can’t always get what you want. I tell her this a lot when I am eating.
