invite the wind into your bed, hear the stories of all the mountains it’s seen. does it whisper the ocean’s secrets to you? mermaids don’t believe in humans and faeries are going extinct. walk into the woods and wish a moon existence, walk into the woods and make love to the truth that hides, walk into the woods and walk out a discovered creature.
I just realized something. When Pidge is showing Matt around the castle, we get to see her messy and obviously personalized room. Then I made myself sad by thinking avout the fact that we've seen Keith's room in every single season before and it's always completely empty... I'm not sure how to read into this.
…….I think you know exactly how to read into this, you just don’t want to think about it. Because same.
‘‘When my papa’s Empire will be in need..I will have to marry a prince or king (without a queen) at some point to form alliances..but as my ‘papa’ says…It’s our duty to satisfy everyone. Mama wishes for me to be wedded to Albert and so do I..but papa has absolute control over the both of us, our opinion doesn’t matter much.We’re royal ‘women’,we don’t get a saying in what our future will be like.’’
tldr; try to practice it multiple times a day. just randomly call ur dog and then have a party with preferred reward (toys, treats, praise, squeaky voice etc)
when they resting in another room
when they cant see you
when they clearly distracted by a smell in ur house
turn it into hide and seek
expand it to ur front yard or some fenced yard with minimal distractions or long line + harness
start taking it to other places. UR NOT DRILLING THIS OK, just let them walk along doing their thing THEN suddenly call…then 5 more minutes doing their thing, THEN SUDDENLY CALL
slowly build it up to them being distracted by things, but start when they naturally looking ur way
use happy excited voice!! always! do not bother with serious HERE voice for this, this is ur excited party recall and u want it to reach into the very fibre of their being and have them running to u before they even finish hearing it. ur tone, ur enthusiasm, they matter. u will look like an idiot but ohmygod when u recall ur reactive dog from a strange dog that approached her it is WORTH IT
try to touch their collar. just treat and collar, treat and collar, so touching collar = good thing, not the fun is ending. u can do this exercise separately.
separate to all ur COMMAND practice, randomly
reward them checking in on you. just looking at u. could be treats, a
game, praise, going over to sniff something - whatever it is u think ur
dog would like that moment. u want them to look at u more often, just
good skill to have.
Remember, this is built on repetition, practice and reinforcement! and nothing gonna be 100%, keep an eye on ur environment and try to anticipate “bad” distractions - and call your dog BEFORE they notice the distraction
here’s the shitty bit.
do this couple of times every day for a couple of months. ur dog will get better and faster. dont give them opportunities to run off until a couple of months in, breath, go somewhere safe and not too distracting and only recall when u think the odds are good or preventive measure (ie a potential distraction u noticed first). reward…then let them go back to doing the thing they were doing.
after that couple of months, you can dial back…and u won’t lose points for skipping a day here and there.
don’t expect 100%. strive for it, aim for 99% and acknowledge that 1% of the time it will be out of ur hands. keep working at 99%. vary it up, put ur own twist on it as u work out what works best with ur dog. do touch ups as needed (the grounded incident last year lmao)
e.g here is me, playing some game with thistle. i try to do this game once a week…at dog school…with all the other dogs around…because this is an environment i really want to reinforce turning on the dime to me. this game doubles as a reward, cause she gets to chase and bite the treats.
that’s my high prey drive low impulse control didnt know shit when i got her at 1 year old rescue. 2.5 years later with lots of work, not so bad, hey? we’ve got some crittering issues, sure, and i still need to manage carefully…but i take her offlead to bushes, reserves and even some less populated city parks. with all that training and reinforcement, comes freedom and fun!
and she still blew me off a bit later for what turned out to be week old abandoned steak ;) win most lose some
and here is us playing actual hide and seek. ive started doing it with thyme, on easy level (just standing in a different room/behind objects) to build reinforcement in the desire to find me when he cannot see me!
tldr tldr i believe in you anon! and in pointy-pup! some dogs need more work but keep at it!
supporting lance is the best way to apprehend his journey! everyone should support lance! he needs it so much! and tbh his journey's gonna be great whatever happens to him so support! this! wonderful! boy! he has so much to learn and so much to see!
If you have the time, can you pleasey please write " You are my dentist and I have the bigest crush on you and one time you give me too much laughing gas so I end up telling you that AU" Thank you
Okay, so I don’t even wanna think about how long this prompt has been sitting in my inbox. It’s obscene. Probably close to two years and really, I’m just astonished tumblr hasn’t eaten this thing yet. But whatever, it makes me feel guilty just sitting in there with that stupid judging sunglasses face so I wrote a thing. Consider this part of Tracy’s Great Inbox Clean Out. Also, I totally didn’t follow this prompt because I distinctly remember reading at least five versions of this prompt for Everlark at the time this sucker showed up in my inbox. But hey! It’s in the same vein…except it’s canonesque set in the Catching FIre timeline, not AU…and it’d be something like Benadryl, not laughing gas… whatever. Just read.
RATED T: Angst ahoy! You can take it, though. It’s no worse than the books.
Katniss sways on her feet, leaning onto him heavily, and even though her weight is slight, the suddenness of her movements divert their steps. She croons to the night, the medicine having removed most of her usual filters. He never hears her sing. Not since Rue.
Behind him, Effie scolds the cook assigned to their suite and he tries to defend himself. “Must have been the mangoes. I had no idea she’d be allergic! Miss Trinket, please believe me, I would never–”
Peeta keeps walking, jaw aching and fists clenched in the effort to not turn around and scream at the man himself. As they stagger down the hall, Peeta’s eyes close for just a moment.
He’s slammed with it all over again. The terrifying sight of Katniss’ ears and cheeks swelling. The horrifying choking and gasping noises she made as her tongue swelled.
He’d been sure she was going to die. Certain that Snow had chosen to start the Games before the gong sounded, before they even entered the Arena.
I know absolutely Zero(0) Straight Guys. I see them everywhere, I just don't ever talk to them or bother to remember their names. Because honestly who has the time for that when there are so many girls around?
