I should not be dreaming wolf dreams, the girl told herself. I am a cat now, not a wolf. I am Cat of the Canals. The wolf dreams belonged to Arya of House Stark. Try as she might, though, she could not rid herself of Arya. It made no difference whether she slept beneath the temple or in the little room beneath the eaves with Brusco’s daughters, the wolf dreams still haunted her by night.
So awhile back @streetdogmillionaires mentioned an amazing cheap thing called ‘window film’ that can be used to stop your dog looking out the window (and getting overly excited/reactive/barking/redirecting).
So I ordered some on ebay and it’s been sitting around for a month and I finally installed it on the weekend.
1) ABSOLUTELY GORGEOUS, way better in person than on ebay photos!
2) Dog can’t react at what she can’t see! Sure, she can hear something and might get worried, but she cannot see and overreact!
3) It’s made for some gorgeous photos omg
Here’s a before btw:
