a little chilled tonite...

ok...this is a follow up to the previous entry since i was able to relax a little tonite from the past few days   ....for those who would like to know what happened with my dog, here goes...all last year, my Sadie dog kept fighting my other dogs especially a little terrier that i had   during these fights Sadie became like another dog in a frenzy and out to kill   she almost literally killed the little terrier i had   so i'm figuring that most of this was due to the terrier aggravating the hell out of her and for that and other reasons i found another place for the terrier   so for about 6 months now Sadie has not been in any fights again until the other nite   it wasn't even her fight  Charlie snapped at Max, no fighting done, but soon as he did Sadie attacked Charlie   she was in a frenzy and tore up Charlie a bit   there was plenty of blood   i did not have such a great day at work, nor had my supper yet when this broke out   the only way to stop the fighting is throwing water on Sadie, then i can grab her and put her outside, which i did   during last year and the other nite, the bloody fights (literally) have been tooo much for me to handle   in the midst of my anger 2 nites ago, i decided right then and there to take Sadie to the pound   i've never been so angry with Sadie or any of my dogs for that matter   i knew in keeping her that i'd be walking on eggshells in keeping them apart anticipating another attack by Sadie   since she was a pup she's always been ms queen dog, or so she has thought    it was only a year ago that she seemed to have changed drastically in the dominant role playing   i'm at lost as to what created the change   a friend also told me that once a dog draws blood from another., then they are worse   since taking her to the pound, which i hate, i've wanted to rescue her yet i cannot seem to bring myself to do it either    i went thru months of separating Sadie from the previous dog   i almost gave up Sadie then, but didn't   anyways, that is the story as to why she's gone   my heart is broken   i'm still angry and baffled    anyone with other insights, i welcome them....

I am so sorry for your loss. My son dealt with an issue exactly like this and had to get rid of one of his dogs. This dog almost killed the younger dog they had. It was the right decision, but it just hurts and feels bad. Remember that you are a good MOM and your animals love you. You had to protect the others in the only way that would work.   Anne

I'm so sorry. I know how difficult this must be for you. A friend of mine had 2 male dogs that got along fine until one day they had a big fight. From that day on, she had to keep them separated. Sounds like Sadie might be jealous (esp. w/new puppy there) & trying to stake out her territory? ((hugs)) ~ Lori
