I should become a pet behavioral psychologist. Those folks charge about $200 per visit! And then I would know all the answers as to why my dog is suddenly freaked out about going outside. He was fine until last night, when the people behind me had a party, and people sitting on their porch, and Wrigley just freaked out, and the entire day, he'd whine at the door to go out, and then turn right around in an attempt to come back in as soon as he was outside, instead of going out to do his bid-ness.

Same thing tonight, after he'd eaten his dinner. For those of you who don't have dogs, they have a gastro-intestinal reflex that causes them to need to poop about 30 min or so after they've eaten. I fed him before I sat down to watch CSI, and thus when I let him out after it was done 40 min later, I knew he needed to go, because I didn't think he'd gone all day, either. But no, same thing; he needed encouraging to get off the port, and even then he kept trying to run outside. I felt like a mean mom, since I kept telling him, "no, you can't go back in there" and yanking on his tie out. I had to keep doing this outside for about 10 minutes before he de-freaked enough, or got the point through his not-that-smart German shepherd head that he needed to leave me some presents or he wasn't going to get back inside.

But ugh, what do you do about that? And now, I need to clip his nails, and he's even more of a fuss budget about that. My cousin said he just flips his lab on his back and does it that way. With the way Wrigley puts up a fight, I may need to flip him on his back and sit on him to get this done.

Thanks! I saw the movie again the other day, and admit I got sucked in by the rash of other amelie pics, so went and found a site and "borrowed" some. :)
