My friend and her new man came over to my house Saturday night after we had gone out to eat and had a few drinks. Well, I will admit that Brady does jump some, and I have been working with him and he has gotten so much better. When company comes over I stay right by him and make him sit, though he will jump up on occasion. The guy likes dogs and all and his rommate has one so I didn't think we would have a problem. Well Brady jumped up and that guy hit him SO hard on the nose. I was like what the f*&$? Brady does not get hit by anyone, and I especially don't appreciate someone I barely know coming into my home and thinking he can discipline MY dog. I flew off the handle. I said "Don't you ever hit my dog again, you don't come into my home/his home and hit him." He said "Why, he was going to jump?" I told him because I don't personally believe in hitting an animal to teach it a lesson, I only believe in positive reinforcements. He said something along the lines of how dumb that was and I retorted that if he ever hit my dog again I would cut of his b@lls and place them on a stake in my front yard, and were we understood? A little harsh I will admit, but I was so mad I was practically seeing red. He seemed to be a bit disturbed by my statement. I wonder if it was my tone or my words that got him? I am sorry, but people just cannot come into my house and hit my dog. And this is the second time she has brought a boyfriend that tries to act all big and bad like he knows how to handle a dog, and both have just come off looking like complete idiots in that department. But, it is not her fault that she hasn't chosen a man that has any canine intellect. So, after I told him about the whole positive reinforcement thing, the dimwit then fed my dog a whole Krystal! And he didn't even ask me if he could eat it, he just gave it to him! I would have consented, possibly to a little bite, but don't give my dog a whole Krystal! I said oh geesh, don't give him anything else! Ugh! I thought the guy was alright until this whole incident and now I am completely annoyed and disgusted by him. I am so thankful for my animal loving husband and that I am not out in the dating scene because if I was, I would be holed up in my house with my dog. There are some real idiots out there.
