aggression and being an irritable hag.
i went and met our new girl....her name will be "jelly bean"...the shelter staff named her "ellie-mae" but gee that ain't gonna fly around here with certain princesses already possessing that name!
i am naming her jelly bean because she already answers to "ellie" so answering to "jelly" shouldn't be too hard for her. plus she is (i think) probably predominently a rotti/pitty cross so i would like a nice and sweetly silly name for her for obvious reasons.
she SEEMS ok with cats and other dogs...ie she is not overtly interested or aggressive. but anyone could test phoebe in a shelter environment and she would pass with flying colors too. cuz...phoebe is not really aggressive (even tho she will bite another dog or a person without a second thought if she is in a bad mood)..she is sometimes... a nasty, mean, bitchy pain in the ass....but not all of the time..just when she feels like it. so not really aggressive but more actually bitchy....there is a difference here.
anyway...jellybean is lovely..a sweet and kissy kind of girl. even tho she is technically sick with a very enlarged liver, possibly cushings and a large mammary tumour...she is pretty darn bright, perky and active..she ain't no sickly couch potato.
sigh...we will see how she does here. please be a good dog...please be a good dog...please don't be a hag, we have enough of those.
i have to say that phoebe, perdy and jesse hold the rest of us hostage in the house...i have to move so and so cuz phoebe is being a hag...i can't put someone over in the dog room cuz jesse is also a hag and god forbid i trust perdy even for a second around here...she just nailed squirt as he was trying to slip past her. i need her out of the entrance way and phoebe back in there but perdy's back end sucks too much to move her back up into the laundry room.
grhhh..i can't trust phoebe, i can't trust jesse, i can't trust perdy......geez louise! i wish i could just knock all three of them off!
sadly..... killing bitchy dogs is not exactly in our mandate.
but maybe it should be....cuz i think life without a bunch of cranky old hags would be infinitely better!
next life i am only rescuing nice dogs...no hags allowed.
i just shared my mac and cheese dinner with the kitchen/computer room dogs (including phoebe the hag!)..larry is a nice dog AND so freaking cute too...he still has unbeknownest to him....a noodle on his nose!
