Dusty's New Attitude

Dusty had his surgery a few days ago and I'm watching him closely to see if less testosterone will make a difference in his aggressiveness. So far, it looks like it's worked except for his sudden desire to make love to my leg. Repeatedly. CFM said it's probably the last gasp.

He does seem to be a little more controllable. This week we start walking on the leash and learning to unwind it from around my body. Neat trick that!

It will be interesting to see how it affects his sleeping. He takes his nappies under the love seat and once he's under, he's in another world. If you walk within two feet of the couch while he's there, he growls and threatens attack. Yesterday morning, he was howling in his sleep. I'd love to get a picture like the one of this little fella singing.

This dog isn't nearly as cute as Dusty but the actions are identical. I keep waiting for him to slam into the side of the desk or door.

good luck with it all, Marley. can't be nice to have an aggressive dog on your hands.

Thanks, Michael. I love the little fella and was beginning to fear I'd have to have him put down someday for viciousness. I already bear one scar from him biting me in one of his fits.
