White Dog did not have a good day. All of the pressures of the week caught up with her. Steve had to work all day, even though it was Sunday (he had a deadline). Michael was in a foul mood. Dragon-brat was truly living up to his nickname, vexing her to the end of her limits. All of this was no excuse, however, for growling a challenge at Steve and then biting his hand when he tried to take away the dust bunny White Dog had between her teeth...a dust bunny that she invited Steve to take! She knew the punishment for being mean...sit, stay next to mom's right leg in time out...then released, to go apologize to Steve for her unwarranted behavior. White Dog was contrite and Steve did accept her "I am sorry" woof and head on his knee.

Sometimes it's all just too much for one little eskie to handle, right Siku? That happens to me from time to time, and when it does, wht works best is to go curl up with a parent and absorb all the love they have for you. With all of that goodness, things are bound to look brighter after your next wake up.

If that doesn't work, ask mom and dad if you can come visit me for a while. It might really make you appreciate what you have - ha ha!! :)

Love you my BFF!

Oh no, Siku. We all have bad days. Tomorrow is another day and it will be better. I hope you rest up tonight so there are no more time outs for you. We all know you're a good girl.:)

Hi Siku – tomorrow and next week will be better. At least Dragon is only around on Sunday. I have Oliver ALL the time. He always takes my toys and tries to steal my snacks. I want Mom to put bells on him so I can hear him coming and eat faster before he gets to my plate.

Hugs and yips.

Aww...I just had a bad bad moment like that too a few days ago. I don't know what made me did it, but I did a no. 1 on Mom's bed...>.<" Vexed her to no end and I got not only a bad scolding, but my time out was super long...:(

Guess we all have gotten up on the 'wrong side of the bed', so to speak..*wink* But I like to think of the term, "There's always tomorrow to look forward to..." *grins*

Hi Siku,

I hope you have a better day tomorrow, Siku. I hope dragon will treat you better as well.

Timeouts are no big deal. I get it A LOT! But, I have a special corner where my mom orders me to lie down and stay until I calm down.

P.S. My mom thanks for the advice about my extra clingy behavior. She thinks you're right its just because of the changes around here.

Poor White Dog - a lot of "new" in her life, just takes time to adjust to all.

Hugs to her from us.

yeah i am sure you will have a better day tomorrow listen to your friends they are quite wise in the terms of life and how it is played out

Sagira said...

I think we all have those days. Hang in there WD!

Suka said...

hey Siku Marie,

I am sad to hear you got in trouble. Don't beat yourself up. We all - including humans - have bad days. Dogs, of course, rarely have bad days so when we do humans are very surprised by it. You have had a lot of newness in your life lately, and a lot of changes, so it is totally understandable why you snapped. I hope you get plenty of rest and yummy food and warmth and then you will feel better.

Licks and Tail Wags,

In your defense, White Dog, we all have our bad days. We're glad you could "kiss and make up" and are REALLY glad no one went to bed upset.
