Bubba’s Day Out!

I finally was able to fulfill a long-standing dream of mine, which is to take Bubba to Bonifacio High Street. I’ve always been hesitant to do so because he tends to pee on whatever bush or post he sees, which is typical since he’s a male dog. I’ve always used a poop bucket for him, so that’s never been a problem, but the peeing….well…

Anyway, last Sunday there was a Pet Club event hosted by Hobbes and Landes and I figured it would be the best time to take him. I was a little bit iffy because of the weather but I didn’t wanna dissapoint Bubba because he seemed excited about our trip. So I ended up going and I’m glad I did! He was smitten by this 10 month old lab named Misha! Besides that he got to play around with other dogs and also tried some agility training exercises, although he kinda got a bit nervous at first and had a bout of stage fright!

During the event I got to talk to the obedience and agitlity trainer, Domingo Juan, and he told me that despite Bubba’s age, he can still be trained to get rid of that peeing behavior. One way, he said, was to not feed and limit water intake the day before to the day i take him out. Also, behavior modification can help. I am quite interested in enrolling Bubba in his training classes but he requires 3-4 sessions a week, and I can’t commit to that schedule because of work.

After the tiring exercises, I treated Bubba and my brothers to Fridays. Of course we ordered ribs because of him!!!!

One thing I noticed, however, is despite how massive Bubba looks, he’s tiny compared to purebred labs 🙁

    Hi Sis,

    Too bad I wasn’t able to go, dog fright for me.. I’ve always wanted to meet Bubba but just the thought of he’s a dog really scares me, hahaha.. Am glad that he had fun.. Oh, whenever I catch Marley & Me running on HBO, I always think of you and Bubba, just hope he’s not as hyper as Marley, LOL.

    Miss you sis..

    Hi. We are also owners of a male labrador of the same color. Our problem is with our little mongrel. She tends to playfully bite the snout of our lab causing loss of hair on that area. Do you use anything to promote hair growth for labs?

    On a different note, maybe you or your friends would like to join this mini contest for a chance to win a Real Home Ideas 5: Small Space Solutions
