crazy horse breaks all of my rules around biting...like sometimes dogs bite for a reason...someone is trying to touch them and they don't want to be touched, they are guarding something they don't want to be taken away, they are hurt or in pain or confused and demented or they seriously misunderstood what was actually happening...like when I put my leg in front of odie's blind face.
those bites are usually a quick " F off."
I am not a fan of dogs who come looking for trouble...the ones that come seeking their victim from across the room or the yard. I am also not a fan of dogs who multiple bite. one bite is good enough to get their point across...two or three, one right after another, (unless they are being hurt or restrained and are in total terror...odie-san!) tells me the dog has some serious anger/fear/controlling themselves issues.
roxy went leaping across to bite Dionne today when dionne stopped in to see andrea. the first bite was the finger which was no where near her...and it was a hard one..the second was Dionne's thigh (roxy could only reach Dionne's thigh cuz she was up on the bed)..not quite as bad but totally over the top unnecessary as far as I am concerned.
roxy if she was a shepherd, a pitty, an 80 pound mutt... would be in a great deal of trouble because I would be thinking of euthanizing her...she has crossed my personally acceptable, understandable biting lines far too much.
but fer chrissakess, that mini, nasty, one eyed maniac weighs something like 5 or 6 pounds. she couldn't seriously hurt someone even tho she really does want to.
is it fair that this little biting wasp gets away with shit that a big dog can't? of course it isn't.... but who the hell ever said life was fair???
crazy horse is crazy...at times she is a raving nutbar. and it doesn't really matter that only erin, renee and I get to see the really sweet tiny thing who just wants to be loved...there are a lot more people around here than just us.
I think from now on..roxy will have to be in her pen when anyone she might bite is on site. she can come out at night when everyone is gone.
heaven help us all from the miniscule freaking crazy ass dog....she is so lucky she is so little, next life she better not come back as a big biting dog.
