Today I’m going to highlight resolutions we are making in an attempt to curb some mischief around here.
First, Jack resolves to practice his recall. He can be really good at it sometimes and other times I can be right next to him and it’s virtually impossible to get his attention without a poke in the shoulder. I know this is actually MY issue in that I’m not consistent or diligent with his training, so I have to resolve to spend more time with him working on his recall. We both take on this resolution.
Secondly, for Maggie, her mischief resolution is more basic. She resolves to be MORE mischievous. Maggie is so fearful sometimes, she won’t try anything new. When she encounters something new – which is often, first she has to see if her brother Jack is doing it and even then, even after she watches him, if it is the least bit different, she gives up pretty easily. Just look at this little video of her with one of her xmas presents. She probably never had presents before so she really doesn’t know what to do with it. So, Maggie resolves to become more playful and maybe even a little mischievous in 2014
