Thread: How can I be angry when I look at this face?

    I really don't want to disagree with you - but - being taught and actually doing - are entirely different things.

    Having your son help you with the pup while she is hurt and getting better - will probably be the best lesson that he can learn in life - consequences to actions.

    I'm so sorry this has happened after just reading about how your luck had changed around for you.
    I hope puppy is ok and please keep us all updated on how he is.

    I understand what you are saying Riley and I understand you mean no offense

    He has done as he has been taught, with all our dogs and friends dogs hence we assumed (yes it is biting us on the buttocks today) he would be fine for 4 mins. He normally is great with the animals he even help feed, water, exercise and bathing them. He has been raised with cats, dogs, horses, a bird and more recently rats and a goat. He helps care for all of them every days hence I am so shocked at today.
    I am not saying it was right in fact I was the one who said he was cruel, but he has been taught how to behave with and near animals. It was bad behavior and he will be punished and made to understand the consequences of his actions today, that I agree must be done to prevent a repeat of any cruel behavior in the future.

    Also I just spoke with OH they are seeing the Vet now

    Please 'Drag0ncharm' - do not forget your son's age ! He is only very little and young as yet and still needs heaps of guidance to be the boy that you and your OH would like.

    As with everything in life - with pups and kids - reinforcing preferred behaviour is always the best ! Yes - it takes time and patience - but the benefits are awesome !

    Pax is staying overnight possible growth plate fracture she will have x-ray tomorrow and we will know how bad.
    Best case: they strap her leg and she is on pain killers
    Worst case: she needs a specialist to put pins in her leg to make sure her leg continues to grow correctly.

    Estimated bill that we need to pay tomorrow afternoon $440 when it rains it poors... I am going to go eat a whole tub of ice cream and cry some more

    Well sounds like Pax already knows who her mum is and who to protect! what a good caring girl for watching out for you with your knee And i'm really sorry about your other dog.. It would've been hard but it was the right thing for the dog indeed.. I hope he/she is a happy dog now where there is no cows.
    No one loves you like your dog does.

    Go easy on your son.
    What was he thinking?

    He wasnt. He's 2. Its his job to act wrecklessly, without forethought for consequences. Consequential thinking comes at a later stage of child development.

    Hi everyone, Drag0ncharm isn't happy with the direction this thread's taking. Can we all please put the focus back on little Pax as she would like to keep this thread open for updates as she grows not have it full of parenting advice and making her feel bad for things out of her control, thanks

    There is no psychiatrist in the world like a puppy licking your face.
