from the humane society. S
he was my constant companion when my husband was away (he was in the navy) and I was
completely alone in California
2500 miles from anyone I knew for weeks or months at a time... I really truly love my dog..
& this whole situation
At first, her and my son were quite the pair-- my baby loves her && he laughs at her and is amazed watching her
but now that he's become more mobile (( crawling && in the walker-- hes 8 months old this week )) she's become
a lot different. First, it was just jealousy type things -- she started taking his toys and destroying them. We just
got her to stop.. now she's peeing by his crib all the time and pooping under it all the time. She'll knock over the
hamper and pee all over his clothes and JUST his clothes. I've been scrubbing and scrubbing, and having to throw
so many clothes out. Now this week, she's starting to growl and snap at him.. like if we didn't grab
her she would've bitten him in the face atleast 3 times now.. it seems to be when he's in his walker and he's standing
by the couch.. but the really weird thing is it's not when he's moving or even looking at her. I could understand
( but of course would still be really mad ) if he was running up to her, or grabbing her or something.. but it's when
he's not doing anything he's just standing near me or my husband.
People keep telling me I should get a trainer or send her to some obediance thing.. but honestly I just think I need to find
her a new home as soon as possible. Is that extreme ? She hasn't actually bitten him but
I don't even want
to take the chance. It's just not worth it to me.
Am I doing the right thing?
