    @ddnene, I forgot about the knee, maybe he needs a little French sister, they can run themselves nuts and you can just sit back and laugh all day long with Marcus.

    Does he like the laser? Canelo goes nuts over the laser, you can't say laser around him, you have to spell it. Thank goodness he can't spell. I'll pull the laser out and have him chase it up and down the hallway. He loves it so much I have to stop the play because he doesn't but it helps wear him down. The laser has to be put up because he has climbed over the couch and onto a table to get the laser and he destroyed it.

    I need ideas to wear him out, but at the same time keep him out of trouble… Lol He LOVES tug-of-war but honestly I can't do it for very long because it feels like my arm is going to rip off (he's a pretty strong boy now). He will fetch, but then he wants to play tug-of-war again.

    If any of you have games that you play indoors w/your bullies please share… once the hubby gets home he can wrestle w/him to wear him out. He's about to put my arms in casts at this point… Lol
    I'm having the SAME issues with brutus! Yesterday, i went back to training 101 with him haha. He's like Walter and starts to bite me. I did a half hour before Brian got home from work and he was OUT the rest of the evening. We did sit, down, here, with me and our new thing is Stay. he's catching on after one day LOL. I think the mental training wears him out more than exercising does.

    My parents have a golden retriever, sydney who is about 15. he has some serious separation anxiety issues. they have the same problem. he wakes up and prances around the house, panting, pacing every single night. They have started to walk him more in short spurts to settle him down at night. He's on xanax.

    I bet you are tired. Try teaching Wally a trick or two, get that mind wore out. Brutus is so high energy, if i don't walk him or let him run with the neighbors dogs along our fence, it's a huge issue in the house and his off destroying everything in his path. Since it's cold, i can't walk them. he wears out so much easier with mentally challenging him. he's a smarty pants. he actually stayed when we worked on it yesterday. but first...go take yourself a nap

    Well the vet told me to give Roxie the melatonin like Rosalie said @brutus77 I hope it works, because I'm so tired today… I don't think I can take another sleepless night I'm going to work on training w/Wally, and he did enjoy those treat hiding toys… those things wear him out too. NO today's fun I spent about 2 hrs w/my grandson at the mall looking for a winter coat for him. Since the freeze hit, all the 3T's were gone… we hit every single place there and the last store Belk's had one It's official… I'm CUCKOO FOR COCO PUFFS!!!

    I may have to try the melatonin with Sydney. My parents are flying out of here and going to Florida next friday and I get to keep Sydney for a week. They don't like to give him his xanax but he needs it, maybe the melatonin would be better for him.

    OMG! you have had a day so far LMAO.

    Put a slip n slide in the living room or hallway for him. Hook up a tennis ball to a bungie cord and tie it around a doorknob and watch hilarity ensue. Just make sure no glass is around. Lol
    Bulldogs are like potato chips. You just can't stop with one.
