Roman has been getting into the dog's water on a regular basis. We have tried EVERYTHING short of removing the water (which I do not believe in, because I think he needs to learn). We have tried redirecting, physically moving, saying "NO TOUCH" in a stern voice and nothing has worked so tonight I tried a different tactic and this is what happened!!
Roman headed towards Comiskey's water and put his hand in there. I said "NO TOUCH" and moved him into the living room. He crawled as fast as he could back to the bowl and did it again. So I walked over, smacked his hand (not hard, don't worry), said "NO TOUCH" and moved him to the living room. He started crying but didn't go back to the bowl. Here is where the funny part comes in. I turn around and Mia is SOBBBING, I asked her what's wrong and her response was "Don't spank him, he's my favorite brother. You hurt my feelings, cuz he's my favorite brother, don't spank him"
I busted out laughing!! I couldn't help it. I barely tapped him but because he cried she was SO upset! It was a really sweet moment actually and I realized how special that bond of siblings really is!
