As for how she's acting around you, I'd bet my life that she's just over protective of your Sister. She was rescued by her and she knows she has a good life now because of her. Be careful when your sister isn't there. It could go one of two ways. She'll either be completely different without her there and want lots of love and attention from you, or she could get even more territorial and aggressive if confronted alone in the house. The more you go there and get her familiar with you and familiar with her knowing you belong in the house, the better.

    Give her time. She'll eventually adjust. It just takes time.
    I can tell shes unsure about me and my motives. I am nervous about being alone with her-we havent reached that point yet. Shes a big dog and if she bit me, it would do a lot of damage. I dont want to admit it but Im scared of her.

    I will have to go over there more before we both feel comfortable. Usually I can read body language to tell what a dogs thinking-but shes got a poker face.

    I kind of got the "oh god this bitch again" vibe from her today

    That kind of sounds like a dog who was punished harshly for making mistakes.

    Good luck with her!

    She's doing pretty good. Still raspy, but feeling much better now! She still has another 10 days of antibiotics, but she is definitely on the mend. Thanks for checking on my brat!

    My hubby and I went glamping this past week and took our 16-year-old Yorkie, Stormy, with us. While we were there I could sense something wasn't right with Stormy; he was sluggish and wanted to sleep all the time. We got home this past Saturday and I took Stormy out to the bathroom. As I picked him up to bring him into the house, he went completely limp in my arms. I laid him down on an ottoman in our living room he sleeps on each night when we are watching television. He was breathing but still limp. He then had a bowel movement so I cleaned him up. A few minutes later he seemed fine again.

    Fast forward to Monday morning. My hubby took Stormy out to the bathroom and ran he ran to the water bowl after coming back inside. After a couple of minutes, my husband (getting his coffee) found Stormy laying flat on the ground in the laundry room. We rushed him to the vet (a friend of my husband's) and he was found to be in heart failure. The vet was honest and told us he was very concerned about Stormy and that he would run some tests and asked to keep him for the day, but reiterated that he was 'very, very sick'. Reluctantly, we returned home...crying and crying. I was unable to work so I simply went to bed and put my head under the blanket. Stormy is literally the 'love of my life' and I was heartbroken beyond words.

    Luckily, the meds did 'the trick' and Storm was able to come home yesterday afternoon with us. The vet said he had a 50/50 chance of living through the night...well, Storm is alive this morning!!! The vet also said he likely will be able to live a few more days or possibly even another couple of weeks. I am thankful to have him home and just want my baby to rest and be comfortable. It is terrible when something happens to our babies and people without pets often do not understand.

    Bewitching, I am so, so sorry. I know how much you love your babies, and how lucky they are to have you. I am glad you got some extra time to spend with Stormy. I hope you get much more quality time than the vet forecast-sending you guys good thoughts!

    RBW I'm so happy to hear about your baby slowly getting better

    Bewitching, I'm SO very sorry to hear about Stormy. They really are our kids and it hurts so much to see them not doing okay. I'll be sending my love and good energy to you guys.

    Im sorry to hear this. Is he on heart meds or is he beyond that point?

    Just keep him comfortable and love on him. Thats all you can really do.

    Its okay to be a mess. I lost my shit when I put my 16 year old cat down.

    Bewitching: I am so sorry, just cuddle him as much as you can.

    Seems like a lot of us here have recently lost a pet. Now that I think about it, for me it's been 2 years but it seems just like yesterday.

    Thank you, friends. He just got back from the vet, as he was not eating anything and we were unable to put his meds (2 cardiac and 1 diuretic) in his mouth otherwise. They were able to do so and the vet said he was very surprised he made it through the night. My husband asked him to be honest on the prognosis (they are long time friends) and the vet said he might live another couple of days or even a couple of weeks. We are just keeping my baby comfortable (he is sleeping in my office right now).

    He's adorable! Again, I'm so sorry. Just try to enjoy every second with him and take in every thing he does so that you can smile and remember it later. It's so freaking hard to lose them.

    Ah. What a love! I'm so sorry you are dealing with this. We've lost two this horrible year. The only good thing was we got to spend some extra time with them while working from home.

    It came to me that every time I lose a dog they take a piece of my heart with them, and every new dog who comes into my life gifts me with a piece of their heart. If I live long enough all the components of my heart will be dog, and I will become as generous and loving as they are.

    I lost 2 last year and it hurt. I understand what you are going through.

    Bewitching, how is Stormy doing?

    I sent you a rep earlier, but I forgot to sign it because I keep thinking you are preemie.

    What a sweet little angel face. Hoping Stormy is resting comfortably.

    Glad Cleo is showing great strides, RBW!
