So proud of my Maggie

Earlier tonight I was walking Maggie on a different route than usual. When all of a sudden a fire truck and ambulance started coming down the street with full sirens on ..... Just a little background, I got Mags in February and even though I work on her training everyday,I have not had her long enough to know how she would react to sirens.

She was fine though :thumbs up she was a little nervous but I stayed calm, I told her to sit and stay while I put my arm around her in case she freaked (she's 100lbs so if she just panicked I wouldn't be able to control her with just the leash) when it was going by but she just looked at me like I was a dummy "um it's gone, can we go now?" and "score! free cookie for THAT :eek: ?" :laughing:

Further down the street as the ambulance was still trucking (it was going slow because it was trying to find the house I think) a scared Chihuahua came running out barking at Maggie and the ambulance when it's mom/owner came running out after him. She scooped him up and coddled him (like one would a baby) and he started yelping :sad: , I felt bad for him because he was just scared but I think she was making it worse by picking him up and trying to "console" him :sad: :yell:.

Overall though I am proud that my fuzzbutt listened so well to me, she's come a long way in such a short time :cloud9:

Awesome! My kitties get freaked out by sirens just going off around town... That's very amazing your dog didn't get freaked out by the sirens going so close bye! Personally, I would have gotten scared myself :o

She's a freak :) , the things I would think scare her does not phase her but then things that I think are normal (like the scale at the vets office) she's totally chicken. I think she's messing with me :crazy: .
