    I haven't been on in a long time and I'm not sure if anyone remembers me or chief. Chief was my Giant Schnauzer that I adopted and I was having some troubles with my aunt who my parents where letting stay with us. Well chief didn't like my aunt, I think since she was mean to me, and my aunt didn't like him so I was trying to keep them seperated and most of the time it worked. well my aunt was suppose to leave a while ago but she didn't she said something about her plans falling through or something, not really sure what stupid excuse she fed to my parents and not really interested in finding out. Anyways I haven't been on cause I was staying away from my aunt and keeping chief occupied and everything was going fine. Chief was awesome! He was pig headed sometimes, but otherwise was an awesome dog I really loved him. But I screwed up and now he's dead. :(
    One day I was outside with Chief playing with him and my dad told me him and my mom were going to the store and that they would be back in a little bit and try to be nice to my aunt (they seem to think I'm the one starting things....they think it's my age I guess) so I said fine and went back to playing outside with chief. I really loved playing with him........he would beat me in every race we ran....hehehe. We'll I went inside to get a drink and take a break from running around and things. My aunt was inside and she was just being snotty and we got into a bit of an argument and she grabbed my arm cause I was waving it around like angry jestures and I didn't even think about Chief being there and he thought she was hurting me so he growled and then grabbed her arm. It was my fault I should've remembered to bring him outside cause he is protective of me, but I didn't and my aunt freaked out and said he was a dangerous dog and her arm was bleeding and when my parents got home my aunt said he attacked her and that he was viscous and needed to be put to sleep and my parents talked and said they couldn't take the chance of him biting anyone and had him put to sleep. I told them it was my fault and that he was just protecting me but they said they couldn't take the chance. :(
    It's my fault that he was PTS.....I don't know if I want another dog anymore. If I can't prevent things like this happening with another dog I don't want to have another dog PTS because of my mistakes. He was PTS two weeks ago and I don't have a running partner anymore, I can't play with anyone or toss a ball.

    Rest In Peace Chief.

    OMG Invisible. That's so awful. It's NOT your fault at all. I feel so horrible for you. Lots of hugs! I think I might cry. Poor you and that poor dog who loved you. He wouldn't blame you so don't blame yourself.

    I know you may not want to hear this but I wouldn't get another dog until you move out from your parents house. It's just not the right home. You obviously loved your dog and had a good bond with him. Your parents... just didn't get it and I'm sorry about that.

    And of course I remember you! You're one of my favourite 'kids'

    Lots of HUGS

    Thanks saje, but it was my fault. I was warned by members here to make sure to keep Chief away from my aunt cause he obviously didn't like her and was protective of me and I just wasn't thinking at the time. :(

    I don't think I can even think of getting another dog now, not for a long long time. Thanks a LOT saje!!

    She has been there for a long time. Since June? That's a long time to be uprooted and change your routine. I really feel bad for you. It's a horrible situation. I'm so sorry you lost your dog.

    Yeah....it seems like she's been here forever, but I'm going to make living here a living hell for her! I don't care if I get in trouble, I don't want her living here anymoore. I'm tired of just avoiding her, I'm going to talk to my parents first, but if they won't listen I'm going to do everything in my power to make her move! :mad:

    I'll be glad to see you independent.... I'm sure you're parents love you and support you in many ways but I can't agree with that decision.

    Man... that really sucks. :(

    I'm so sorry- that story nearly has me at tears. God, kudos to you for not killing her... I know it must be hard to control all that anger.

    I just... I mean that's absolutely terrible. Know that Chief loved you and cared about you- that's why when he felt you were in danger, he protected you.

    I'm so sorry about that... it's so hard... to even fathom such heartlessness from your aunt. It makes me very angry really... :mad:

    Know this; what goes around comes around. Good luck.

    And RIP Chief- you were a great dog. You're in a better place now.

    Oh, oh, how awful. You've been on my mind a lot lately. I was afraid your aunt was going to cause something awful for you. I remember all the things she was doing to you and had done in the past. You do realize that if she ever grabs you again or physically assaults you in any way you should call the police and report it as a domestic abuse incident.

    Just know that Chief will be waiting for you on the Other Side. One day, when the time is right, another dog will wander into your life and you will look in its eyes and know that Chief has sent that one to you to be your friend, guide and companion.

    You don't bear the blame in this . . . your aunt does and your parents do for allowing someone like her into your life and for believing her even though they know what kind of person she is. Remember too that kharma will find your aunt . . .

    "Karma's gonna get you..."

    Sing that every time you walk past your aunt and see if it makes her squirm. Better yet, ask your parents if they are going to PTS you since you have to keep defending yourself from your aunt. I'm sorry, but what happened is absolute horse hockey, and you need to have one serious talk with your parents.

    That is just absolutly terrible what happened! Just know that some day, your aunt is going to get what's coming to her and you will one day be reunited with Chief. And what Renee said about Chief sending another dog your way one day.

    I am so sorry Invisible!! Poor sweet Chief :(!! It is NOT your fault, it is your aunt's!! She shouldn't have grabbed you - she has no right to touch you aggressively. My dogs get protective if anyonee grabs me angrily, too.
