I really feel like I accomplished something today. It wasn't that I have successfully integrated a feral dog into every day life with people, that I have solved problems with positive reinforcement that trainers told me I never would or that I have successfully raised a puppy. It was today when I saw pieces of a Christmas ornament on the ground in a pile of puke and thought "this can be fixed."
I will say it is not quite as gross or premeditated as it may seem. The items were in a small pile of just them, surrounded by a sticky kind of yellowish bile many dog owners may be familiar with. I pulled them off the carpet with a paper towel. On my way to the trash can I looked down and seeing as how everything was intact I figured I might just try to wash it off. The plastic cleaned up beautifully, I found the ornament they fell off of and with a little bit of the proper adhesive everything was like new. As you can see above it is like no damage has ever been done to the little reindeer.
How many people have an ornament on their tree that was once inside their dog? This is certainly a next level of dog ownership.
