My horrific week before Thanksgiving




Rider

Oooowweeee






This was 15 minutes before the fight! Bolts sleeping on Gigi







OK so now that I have shown you how GREAT Thanksgiving was... I must tell you about my doggie problem...
As you know we have 3 dogs...
Rider [8 yr old Weim] , Gigi [4 yr old Weim] and the infamous Bolts [11 months old] and no she was not named after the new Disney movie, she was named after the Charger's football team... but if Disney wants to make her into an action hero who am I to object... LOL

Anyway... long story shorter... the week before Thanksgiving... Bolts and Gigi got into a horrific fight and Bolts caused Gigi to get 8 stitches in her ear! Right after it happened I drove Bolts down the hill to my son Kameron... she was placed in exile...

[Its his dog anyway, I knew I was gonna end up with her when he brought her home... but that is besides the point]
Never in my wildest dreams would I have EVER thought those two would get into it... Bolts adores Gigi... Rider and Bolts getting into it... yes... but Gigi and Bolts NEVER!
Ask Nurse Pam, she ADORES Bolts!!

Well, after taking her for surgery, my vet gave me the name of an aggressive dog trainer... He will be coming to the house next week to observe and comment on what 'we' are doing wrong...

[WHERE is the Dog Whisperer when you need him? He seems to get owners and dogs fixed in minutes]
The trainer basically said "Bolts is challenging Gigi for pack leader because she is hitting puberty"
[GD teenagers] This wouldn't be a problem, except as you all know... Bolts is a Pitbull... Bolts LOVES people, hates other dogs... but so do my Weim's... so WTH?

Am I putting off a Michael Vick vibe in my house... WTH?

I don't know what is going on... but it better stop...

My vet bills lately are no laughing matter! Sheesh...

We love Bolts [she is my grand-dog-der] We miss her up at the house but we have to DO something...

BTW Jeanne: I saw a dog show with 4 Weims and one of them was snuzzling LOL Like my Gigi and your Vizla... he he










For those of you who don't know what snuzzling is...










My Gigi [4 yr old blue weim] will take a pillow and suck on the corner of it while kneading it with her paws... It looks like she is nursing or something... she never chews the corner, it just gets wet! Jeanne's Vizla does it too... Weim's and Visla's are in the same dog family... bird hunting dogs

Pitbulls scare me. My neice (marie's daughter) has a bunch of them....and what happened to your Gigi was horrible ! Poor thing. I'm glad she got fixed up ok.
I hope the trainer works out.

Poor Gigi!! That cut looks worse than I pictured! I sure hope the trainer can help so things can be better with the doggies. I mean, I gotta sleep with my Bolts when I visit, right?

OOOOOOOWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW!!! Poor Baby!! Maybe it was an accident? Or was it definitely a FIGHT? My Jazz will constantly "nudge" at Maggie until Maggie goes after him...and then they wrestle a little and Maggie is constantly jumping up and trying to nip Jazz. Of course, you have to remember that Jazz weighs 60 lbs and Maggie weighs 10!! I am always afraid that Jazz is going to accidently hurt Maggie.

Can you ask that Dog Whisperer person about how to get this damn loveable breed to give us humans some SPACE??? I am really getting tired of my 60 lb LAP DOG! (lol)

((hugs))

do you remember what it was like to hit puberty and be surrounded by bitchy older people? Poor Bolts. XO
