Ok, so I left on a well deserved vacation after 9 years of tending to the house and dogs…..Had my mother come here to stay and feed her 'grand-dogs' and they like her, she is very good with them. I return to happy dogs and Uzie does seem a little put off since he 'probably' got extra treats etc with grandma, and I do not. So I am taking something out of the car, step back a little and By Mistake, I step on Uzie's foot since he is crowding me anyway. He screams! I say I am sorry. most dogs will be reactive and will bite on instinctual reaction, it happens in spilt seconds of the offense......no, not my boy: he actually thought about it, and after about 5 seconds I feel his teeth on the back of my thigh!!!!! (nice little bruise marks too!) I really held back so I was not reactive as this coming from my beloved little rescue boy who has lived in MY house for almost 4 years!!! I could not believe what I just felt! - REALLY, biting me after thinking about it? I think he was really teed off! then when I told him he better not EVER do that again, he snarled!!!
So I learned that some dogs really can hold a grudge! I am proved wrong for sure!!
