We had visitors yesterday, an aunt and 2 cousins, a 13-year-old girl and a 7-year-old boy. It wasn't the first time they came, but it was the first time ever that they stayed here all day Blondie was happily playing with them, running all over the house, playing fetch and chasing each other, he had the most fun with the boy (go figure?) but the girl... she's a little annoying I have to admit (she even annoyed the soul out of my poor gran, mom, sister and me ). She insisted on picking Blondie up, and she managed once, but then was afraid and didn't know how to hold him, so I took him from her (didn't want her dropping him or hurting him) and then she tried to take him from me and he barked at her and almost bit her (I'm sure you understand how that "barking" went). After that, they insisted on playing with him and I tried to stay around, because I didn't want him to bite her. I wonder if you also get this feeling, like it's being too much for the dog and he might be building tiredness up? Anyway I feel like I know Blondie this far, and it was being too much for him. But what do you do when the girl's too annoying and she insists on playing with the dog, and grabbing his arms and legs and ears even if you tell her kindly "Don't do that, darling, he doesn't like it" By the end of the day, he had growled, barked and tried to bite her two more times. Now, I know she was pestering him, but I was a little scared because he's not used to long-stay visitors and I didn't like his being agressive like that. Just because he was tired and probably annoyed. The girl decided to get on our treadmill and walk, and that seemed to bother him a lot, too. When we first got Blondie, he was six weeks old, and he slept in the room where the treadmill was. It's not like it's his property, but I found that so interesting because he barked at her and tried to bite her while she was on the thing, and then I had to pick him up and take him away from her (he wasn't agressive to me at all ) and today he's peed twice near the treadmill (he didn't do that before yesterday)!! These people left at 8 o'clock in the evening and then he didn't even want to finish his food because while he was eating, the girl came to him again and he got mad Today he's been sleepy, but still playful and "almost" back to normal, because he growled at me when I tried to fetch some cookies he didn't seem to be eating (he didn't eat them, but was protecting them all the same). What do you guys make of it? Should he get more visitors, or is it just a normal way to react?
