Victor now growls when he sees a dog in the yard..before he was WOW A FRIEND..he is afraid to go outside in Mom's backyard without Mary. Victor sees the world in a different way..something has been taken away..what a dirty rotten thing to happen..thanks alot Onyx's owners. Now he is afraid when i tie him to the front door..so he can look out..(remember this was the same dog that stayed for hours with his hind foot firmly on the carpet and the rest of him stretched as far as it could go out the door)..now he is afraid if the front door is open and i leave the room.. innocense (sp?) is something to be protected as long as possible until something has to rip it away..he will not ever be the baby that he was again. i told my children when they were older..and around small children for the first time that the reason we do not cuss around them, or act crudely in any way was so they could have that magic world for as long as possible. They took Victor's away..he was so scared when he first came to me..at least a month of being in dog pounds or kennels before i got him..that is a long time. He already knew fear, but only before me. I changed that..to a world of very happy dog. Now i gotta find away to give it back again if i can. I don't know if i can ever restore his relaxed and glorious relationship with the world.
