Streetalk: What's your (dog's) New Year's resolution?

Calli: Stand up to the boys at the dog park a little bit more. I get frisky and run around, until one of these big-boy dogs kind of intimidates me and I’ll run away. My owner tries to encourage me to buck up a little bit so I’m not as submissive. We sit down every Sunday and talk about the progress I’ve made. When I first came to the dog park, I was really, really scared. My owner, for my own well being, would like me to develop just a tad bit more confidence when I’m around the tough dogs, but still keep my sweet disposition. It’s a balance.

Lloyd: My resolution is not to pee on my foot. I’m not very bright, but hopefully I can break that habit. My owners take me to the dog park to watch how the other dogs pee. I guess I’m pretty hopeless. They give me positive reinforcement when I pee without hitting my foot. I get a little treat. At the dog park, I’ve been pretty good about it. But early morning at the house when I first start, I have a problem. I guess I’m not well coordinated. I’m four years old now. My owners love me, but I know this a problem.

Axl Rose: I’m turning 1 next year. That will happen in March. My resolution is to get that freakin’ squirrel in the backyard. It’s always taunting me. The squirrel throws stuff at me. He sits on the wall and throws those things off of the magnolia trees, those big grenade things. I haven’t work out the details yet, but I’m more self confident and braver and turning 1 and I’m going to kick that freakin’ squirrel. Not kill it, just kick it back. That’s my goal for 2009.
