while we figure out mya, we have started her on an anti-aggression dose of elavil (that means the dosing is higher than we use for the anti-neuropathetic pain dose for the crippled dogs.) i gave up on the more natural zylkene for her..it was pretty much useless for her. however...it wil take about three weeks to hit theraputic effect, and it is in no way the miracle answer as phebes has been on it for years and all it really does is smooth down some of the worst haggy edges so she positively accepts more and negatively reacts less.
i have to pick up some more robaxin today...buddy is starting to grumble about his back again.,,,sure as shit..the warm and more comfortabe season for arthritics is over and the more colder and wetter and uncomfortable seasons are beginning.
i appreciate all of the helpful suggestions about caesar milan but in reality...sorry... but that is just one of those easy answer, someone can fix this for us, pipe kind of dreams. we need to be able to problem solve our own way thru this...there will always be a never ending list of pain in the ass dogs ending up here and caesar is not going to move in here.
i will tell you tho the only reason i would actually call him is because BC rescues have a huge hate on for him. i can't honestly tell you why this is so because quite frankly i have never paid much attention to what he actually does or what the hell everyone is bitching about..no trainer, famous or not, holds much interest for me. i don't watch their shows, i don't read their books or articles and i don't pay attention to what other people who rage constantly about someone else think. so curiosity might be a motive to call him, just so i can see things up front and personally....but i am not that curious about it all that much either.
my assumption which i am happy to live with is like every other human in this world..he has his really great parts and some not so perfect parts too, i doubt he is any kind of doggy god and highly doubt he is any kind of doggy devil either...i bet you anything that this would be a more fair and reasonable assessment of him...i bet he has some things that i could really learn from and others that i think are just stupid.
people are so freaking weird...we always think the famous or successful are one or the other..we refuse to just let them be human.
whatever....i better get dressed and get moving here.
