Okay, so maybe it's time to do something about this young-dog-jumping-up behavior. I've been pretty much just letting it go, as I don't want her to be inhibited about jumping on a helper later, but now she's getting bigger....
A large-ish clap of thunder was Laev's ticket to getting rescued from her outdoor kennel and brought inside. I let her run around a minute to wipe any mud from her paws and then she came barreling at me as she does. I turned away but couldn't really move out of the way, due to standing beside the pool we keep for the dogs to cool themselves in. So she launched into me with two paws squarely on my butt.
I went into the pool.
Not flat; just stepped into it, but it was enough to make me burst out laughing and decide that maybe it's time to address this jumping issue. :-)
