I am so mad right now!!! My brother and his gf were over alittle bit ago and we were talking about how I dodged a bullet with the whole couch thing, and how lucky I was to get to keep all three dogs. Then my brothers gf goes "I don't know, I think you should give him away" she says pointing at Sawyer sitting in front of her. To which I replied "No never. As long as I can help it I will never rehomed Sawyer". And then she asked me why! She generally does not like Sawyer. Really she doesent like Keiko either. Because they are big puppies and like to lick your leg or hand when they want your attention. Which this grosses her out. And the general excitement the dogs have when they visit. It just annoys her. Especially with Sawyer though honestly he has done alot better. So I answered to her that the dogs are not throw away items to me. They are my "kids" and im not going to abandon them. She didn't say anymore about it after that. I just hate it. I used to always hear when Sawyer was a puppy that I shouldn't keep him because he was a Lab and I was mauled by two Labs. So I had family members sure he would turn on me. Others just knew how Labs mature and how they are tough to raise. But I knew what I was in for and never budged. I hate people looking at Sawyer like he is the root of all evil or something. Yes he is a young active Lab. Yes he's going to be VERY excited to see company walk in the door. He won't jump on you but he is glued to your side for the first half hour. Yes he loves to give kisses. And SHOCKER SHOCKER when you initiate rough play with him, he's going to play rough with you! And no he's not gonna understand why your yelling at him when your sick of the game. You want to how or bark in his face? Well be prepared to be bopped in the face with a Lab skull. He's not a bad dog. He is a really good smart dog who has the softest heart on the planet. And when people point at him and say "Problem child, must rehome" it just drives me insane.
