    Got a laugh from this one.... I follow a few sheltie pages on Facebook. Pic below is a dog who foot planted every time he was put on a leash to go for a walk. Not sure the calorie burn for riding in a wagon but I bet it's pretty good for he/she who pulls it! This one definitely has his owner wrapped around his finger! Supposedly lays down and won't move if anything is put on his neck so the solution to 'let's go for a walk' is.....

    Ha ha. Good on them! Mind you, when Deska did that when he was younger, it turned out he had elbow dysplasia and arthritis - kept getting told by the vet and specialist it was behavioural until they went inside the elbow, I did at least get an apology.

    I've got 4 different strollers. I figure I have the dogs so I don't have to walk alone, I don't care if that involves me pushing them! I must say though the cart would be a lot harder to pull.

    That's the definition of Sheltie sneaky smart. I swear they can out-think us more than we even know. Or at least wrap us around their paw. Sprite has started standing beside me looking pathetic each night when I herd them all upstairs for bed. She wants me to pick her up and carry her. I did it with Barkley for months and always carry them after surgeries. She's just been to the chiropractor so I know she isn't hurting. Do I cave? I bet you can guess the answer....:rolleyes:

    Ann, I bet the majority of us would cave, as well. :yes: I think Shelties are particularly good at looking pathetic.

    Shelby does the same thing!!! She has no problem running up the stairs and there is no reason that she can’t - but she will put her front legs on the 1st step and give you those sad eyes like “I can’t do it”. Of course we fall for it every time. Can you say she has us wrapped around her paw.

    Yup...nothing like those sad eyes looking at you! Since Piper was young there have been times when he balks at jumping in the car. He'll put his front paws on the sill of the door and start to get ready to jump and pause. He'll do this a few times, each time looking at me until I cave and pick him up and put him in the car. He thinks he's too small to make the jump...un huh...I've seen him take a 14" high jump, he can do it lol. But I still pick him up :lol:.
