Here's Hershey being caught in dad's deadly grip... The reason? Dad was watching a soccer match - his favourite team (Man United) was playing, and Hershey was being a real nuisance by jumping and barking at the screen non-stop... (we don't know the reason either... could it be the ball? Or was she barking her support for Cristiano Ronaldo??) . Anyway, dad got real annoyed with her and just held her in his arms for a good 15minutes so that she could calm down. Apparently it seemed to work! I think he needs to do it more'd give us some much needed peace around here.

Hershey: Helppp... anyone?? Someone??!

Hey pals
We were just reading your last post. We just want to say that we're thinking of your mum & dad and could you please pass on some dale cuddles to them.

Our dad gets us in a tight hold too Hershey but never over soccer hehe.

Looks like Hershey enjoyed being held in the end! She's such a cute girl, even if she is a barker! I think you're right - she wanted that ball.

I heard some sciency stuff on the tv box about how being held tight makes you calmer, they does it to cows.

Manchester United be a very popular team over here, but my mum supports one called spurs.

It sure doesn't look like she put up too much of a struggle. So did Mom give Huskee some loving too?

Raising Addie said...

Hang in there Hershey!

We tried that with Addie when she was young. It never worked. The longer we would hold her the crazier she got!
