Sooooooo I locked Angel in her crate, and Oliver is in the kitchen laying on the floor in front of her crate. Looks like I might be able to get some stuff done today after all!
In other news (ION) Oliver has taking to pushing Angel down the stairs and such and this is not acceptable. So in a plea for help I brought this up on FB late last night and got tons of suggestions the best of which was to tether him, on his six foot leash, to a very heavy boat anchor!
So today I will be out and about shopping for a boat anchor! The second best suggestion was to tether him to a very old very heavy sewing machine. I will have to test this one because I'm not sure if my sewing machine is heavy enough or not, what it is is large enough, it's in a cabinet, to not make it through my office door. It is mostly when he's in my office that he feels the need to herd Angel out the door and then push her down the stairs with his paw.
I still feel that this is a dominance issue, everyone else thinks I'm nutz!
