Quick Bixby Update

Bixby and the dragon1

Things are very busy here. Bixby is now 117 lbs, he’s slowed down to about 2.5 lbs each week. He stands a full head taller than me when he’s up on my shoulders. He has been a pill/beast/troublemaker all week and we are working diligently to correct some difficult and persistent problems. Running away being the most urgent.

He broke away from me three times/days in a row this week and refused to come back, putting himself in some dangerous situations.  The breaking away is very deliberate and his little mind works very hard at devising an escape strategy. So we are doing some serious re-training. After I finished yelling (yelling btw, very ineffective for training, but needed to be done so I could stop freaking out and then focus on the problem).

The dragon was a gift from his most recent playdate…he adores it.

    • Thanks for that. I need to know it’s not just me. 🙂 I wrote that a week ago and I thought we were making good improvements, but yesterday he reverted back to testing me from the moment he woke up to after we went to bed. Today is another day. This too shall pass, for he is very smart and knows what’s expected, so he’ll get there.
