We have a winner

And a winner right on the dot. The winners are Reilly and Denny. There were exactly 68 cookies in the jar. We will get your Oreos in the mail, so you'll have time to get some milk too!!!
Thanks for playing along.

Diana here: Oreo is still barking when I leave.  At his old house he had a family with 2 girls and a doggie brother and they got split up. He has seperation anxiety probably more from his brother and having him to play with even when the family was gone. ( it took Jazzi about 3 mo to get over Addi moving and it took Addi about 3 mo to get over Jazzi's passing)

We had a dog therapist Mike come over today. Oreo is fixable. It's gonna be LOTS of work for us but it shouldn't take too terribly long. Oreo has some things he does good and some not so good. An option is another dog and from my husband's look, that's not an option ha! And doggie daycare once or twice a week for an hour or so, just enough to socialize with other dogs, so I'm going to check into that too.

He also gave us training tips for Oreo. Mike makes it look so easy, I tried it and Oreo knows I'm a pushover .....he's looking like oh Im not doing that for you lady  Lol.
We will be leaving the TV on for noise and he has all new rules. Even just for today, he is already learning. Mike says dogs like it when they have rules and are treated like a dog and it will be so much better with guests come over.

Mike is coming back in 2 weeks so I have to do this right. So, training starts today.  Let's day.....I'll be glad when it's all over. Hopeful for a quieter house soon.


  1. We kept up Bailey's Doggy daycare even after I stopped working for a while for at least one day a week because he needed some dog interaction. It really did help.

  2. wow - we guessed exactly right - how cool is that ! Our dad loves Oreo cookie so he is going to enjoy them. We sure hope the training helps Oreo - he is probably use to lots of noise and voices too - maybe leaving the tv on will help too

  3. Yeah, way to go Reilly and Denny! You guys are on a roll with your prize winnings!

  5. Congratulations to Reilly and Denny! Good luck, Diana! It'll be hard work but it's worth it!

    Mitch and Molly

  6. Congrats to Reilly and Denny! And kudos to you for doing your best to help Oreo adjust. It will be hard work but so worth it

  7. Sounds like you have a plan...I think it is always harder to train us (humans) than for the pups!

    Congrats Denny and Reilly!

  8. Crikey .... Oreo's fixable!!!!!!!! When you fix him can you tell Mum how you did it. She reckons I need fixin' too. I'm getting better BUT she still sends me to doggy day care if she's going to be gone for more than 2 hours. Doggy day care is GREAT!!!! I don't bark when Mum's out but boy do I destroy stuff!!!!!!
    Just to make you feel good. I've been living here for 1 and a half years now. Well I will settle ...... ONE DAY!!

  9. Hey....we think Oreo ate some of them cookies before you took that pic, no way 68 were in there!

  10. Congrats to Riley and Denny. If I lived closer, I would come over and play with you but we're like 87 million miles away.

    Aroo to you,

  11. Congrats to Reilly and Denny! They should really play the Lotto, cause this is the second win this week!
    I am soooo glads your Moms got a doggie head dogtor to help out! (Ma says I needs one REAL bad ☺)
    Sounds like a good plan fursure! And I LOVES the idea of another doggie! YEA! Hey, who's the boss anyhu, you or the peeps? YOU of course! Do some doggie persuasion on the male peep, and gets a pal there now! BOL
    Ruby ♥

  12. Congrats to the Cowspot dogs. They ate smart detectives to guess the number exactly right. Oh and we hope Oreo gets adjusted to his new home soon. Maybe he is part Sheltie. Us Shelties bark like crazy.

  13. Congrats to Reilly and Denny! No wonder they are the Blogville investigators. It will be work but Oreo is worth it. I laughed at Kyla ' comment!!

  14. Congrats to the winners lol! We think you will be amazed how quickly Oreo learns. All we doggies need is a little bit of consistency and we figure it right out!

    Your Pals,

    Murphy & Stanley

  15. Congratulations to Reilly and Denny! I hate to say this...but...mine do much better when they are together! If they are separated...not good. Perhaps you could borrow a dog from a friend to see if that works?

  16. Ruby had lots of separation issues when we first adopted her. She is finally starting to feel secure and a little more relaxed. I am sure Oreo will relax soon.

  17. Congrats to the winners. We are sure you can shape Oreo up in no time. Mike sounds like he knows what he is doing.

  18. Congrats Reilly & Denny!!
    Good luck with the training Oreo. I (Sammy) also had to go for no-bark training and if my peeps could get it right with me we're sure your mom will ace it with you.
