    But she's NOT a SWF. She's a bloody terrier.

    I personally do not think the majority of children should be 'given' dogs. Not unless the child and the parent/s agree first hand on how everything is to be done, food, training, sleeping arrangements, all that stuff. I feel it is too much for the average teenager, I'm sorry. That's just my opinion.

    By saying SWF I meant the stereotypical small aggressive dog. No need to be sorry for stating your opinion.

    Masha,
    (1) Dora is not yours. She is your parents'
    (2) Initially, you did not like the dog (and by the looks of it still don't) and wanted your parents to get rid of it.
    (3) Then, you decided that Dora is agressive, barks and is disobedient - yet your parents don't think so (Dora barking in the appartment does not concern them much as I can ascertain)
    (4) Your mother keeps saying that you torture the dog. Obviously something you are doing is not right for her to say that.

    My gut feeling is that Dora took the limelight in your household. You resented it and wanted your parents to give her away. Now you take possession of Dora and want the attention to focus on you.

    I suggest you leave Dora alone. She does not belong to you. If I were you, I would refrain from making derogative comments about your mother. She is the most important person in your life -even if you don't think so at the moment. You owe her some respect.

    My mother keeps saying I torture Dora because I put her outside. That's it. It's not that I decided that Dora is aggressive - she is. She has shown aggression to humans and dogs. She has nearly bitten my friends little sister. You make it sound that I, out of the blue, decided to think that Dora is aggressive with no given evidence. I didnt - like I said, Dora has shown aggression to humans and dogs.
    I don't resent that Dora took the limelight. My sister was in the limelight before me, if anyone should resent it, its my sister - and yes, she does resent it. I have never wanted attention from my parents, and nor do I want it now. This has NOTHING to do with me wanting attention.
    And you're wrong - Dora does, to some extent, belong to me. She was bought FOR me, or else we would not have a dog in the first place. The only thing I DO resent is that my parents are trying to take control of her.

    On a lighter note, I just did TOT with Dora, same way I did it last time - quickly prepared the food, then rushed outside. I stood on the other side the door for about half a minute. Dora could probably see me through the fly screen, but she didnt bark. By standing on the other side of the door for 30 seconds would that completely ruin TOT? She didnt bark for a minute, but I think that if she hadnt being able to see me, she wouldve barked. I'll do it inside this evening.

    Wow. Someone posts something and it's immediately "she's an attention seeker!"

    The band wagon is always not too far away.

    I like how some people assume that everyone's household (and the dynamics within it) is the same as the next person's. Believe it or not, you can have some truly misguided and frankly horrible parents.
