Most of my family and friends are against Paris because she is a problem animal. Even if I am successful with lamb training, she will still be a problem animal. Woe to any female dog that gets within her reach! Not to mention digging out, climbing the fence and gates.....Your patience is truly commendable. I'm not sure I would have been able to keep trying.
And whaddaya' know?? This morning, we looked out the kitchen window and Paris had left the sanctity and safety of her "cave" dilapidated as it is, and dug a hole in front of the little wire gap that serves as an entrance to the lamb pen. She was curled up, asleep. I let Polly and Parker out for their morning potty and when Parker got close to the fence on the other side of the yard, Paris rushed the fence barking at him.
Later this morning, Paris tuned up and started barking, which she often does. My husband claims she's barking at nothing, but I tell him that just because he doesn't see what she is barking at doesn't mean there's nothing there. Hooray! This morning I called him to come quick! There was a doe in the woods, maybe 100 feet from the house. Paris was on full alert and barking. The doe threw up her white tail flag, and hopped futher into the woods. Paris was vindicated and I got to rub my husband's nose in being wrong about her barking.
