This is Guss.
The Pug puppy with an un-healthy obsession with dirty panties.
The Pug puppy who refuses to grasp the concept of going potty outside.
The Pug puppy who has learned to dig under the fence and head for the hills and run from us for an hour while we try to coax him back into his yard.
The super-cuddly, super-loving, super-ditsy Pug puppy.
Isn't he cute?
One of his amusing traits is his constant look of worry.
The poor thing looks like he needs a good dose of anti-anxiety medication!
I always wondered why he seems so full of worry.
Today I understand why.
In an attempt to keep him in his yard I bought him a shock collar.
Yes, I know it seems mean..... But not nearly as mean as letting him run away and get hit by a car!
I bought the shock collar that also has a vibrate function in the remote control, so I don't have to shock him every time me tries to dig under the fence, I can just buzz him.
The collar was working great!
I only had to shock him 2 times before he learned that digging = unpleasant feeling.
And the shock wasn't really painful for him... he didn't yipe, he just jumped and stopped digging. perfect!
I was pleased.
Tonight, Guss was in his crate sleeping for the night like a good little Pug.
I was watching the Pilot for the new TV show Glee... (it's WONDERFUL by the way!)
I got a little too "into" one of the wonderful '80's songs the kids on the show were singing and kinda busted-a-move in my chair.
Well... when I did, I kinda sorta shifted and sat on the shock collar's remote control.
A few second later, one of the boys came running out of the room where Guss was in his crate yelling...
"Mom!! Somethings wrong with Guss!!! He's trying to get out of his crate!!"
...Um... Yeah... I was shocking the poor sleeping, minding his own business, puppy!!
Thank goodness I bought the really really weak collar!!
He's sleeping in my bed tonight.
It's the least I can do.....
.... Before I go to hell.
