  • March 10th Dinner Post

    Good Morning!

    The roof tops, cars, ground and trees all have layer of wet snow with the snowflakes coming down in a lazy floating manner. We are expecting 4-7 inches by tomorrow afternoon. The high of 36 and the low of 27.

    We are having mac and cheese with ham, pickled beets, green beans and tapioca pudding.

    What will be your dinner this Friday night?
    Heritic, rebel, a thing to flount,
    He drew a circle that shut me out.
    But love and I had the wit to win,
    We drew a circle that took him in.

    I have just had such an emotionally draining week it sucks. Last Saturday we went to the lake house with the dogs and for some reason my 16 month old dog turned on me. He bit me over a dozen times and was trying to tear down the door to come and give me more. I cant even describe how bad the attack was. It was like something in his brain flipped. Having grandkids and a diabetic husband this dog was to dangerous to be allowed to live so we had him euthanized. I know I made the right decision but I had thousands of hours into training him to start doing dog sports. We would get up at four every morning he was just so high energy. While I am so incredibly sad because I loved this dog so much, I realized that I had devoted every waking second of the day into managing an extremely high drive working dog. While I have been crying and in shock most of the week, it feel like for the first time in over a year that I got my life back. I am not spending all day cleaning up after a slob of a dog. The cats are roaming around the house again and the puppy seems so much happier since she behaves like a normal dog and not a hurricane. I am just so sad and at the same time relieved. It sucks that I have a broken heart and all of my hard work is just gone.

    I have been mindlessly scrubbing the house all week and finally feel like cooking today. I have some bread going in the bread maker and rigatoni will be for dinner. Right now I am just enjoying watching the snow come down.

        Oh (((muz))) heart breaking. I'm truly sorry.

        just got back from feeding. Didn't take much effort. The wind blew me there and back "They" say temp is 37 wind chill low 20s. Feels way colder than that.

        My neighbors husband has been in hospital and nursing home for rehab since Jan. 13. He came home last eve. She is wiped out and he can barely walk. There in mid 70s. He wants ham & beans fried cornbread so that's what I'm making. Will take them some. Sis wants some too so I'll take her some and we will have that as well. Made banana pudding to take also.

          Muz - Your dog sounds like Cujo all of a sudden. I wonder if he got bit by something that carried a virus because turning on the owner was out of character for him, even if he was a high energy dog. However, you did the RIGHT thing as he could not be trusted. If he would have attacked a child, you would have been kicking yourself for not taking action. Sorry you had to put him down but feel better knowing you did the right thing. Is your vet going to do any testing on him trying to find out what caused this unusual behavior? I wonder how the other dogs in the same litter are faring. Guess you will never know. Enjoy the dog you have.

            Sounds like he was a Pit Bull, they are very aggressive. It hurts to have to put a dog down, on the other hand you don't want a dog that bites you around in your household.

              Sabine - I don't think the dog was a Pit Bull. I think he was a quality dog from a breeder but don't remember the breed. I have been around some very nice Pit Bull type dogs, and I know they have a bad reputation because their jaws are strong. There is a lot to blame on the Pit Bull owners though.

                Muzette- how absolutely horrifying! I am so sorry that you had to go through that. I can't imagine how hard it was for you to make the decision to put him down. Sending healing thoughts for your body, and your heart. {{{{{HUGS}}}}

                  He was a Doberman whos parents were both imported from Russia. He was well socialized and trained, it was just like a crazy switch went off in his head. We are thinking its a genetic defect since there were no visible injuries.

                    We see a lot of pit bulls around San Antonio. A lot of Hispanic people ,especially men, seem to like that breed. We just had an older man attacked and killed by 3 pit bulls, who escaped out of their fenced yard. His wife was also attacked and is now in the hospital. That couple was in their 80's, they didn't have a chance against 3 pit bulls. I don't know anything about the Doberman breed.
                    I am a dog person and we always had Black Labs, who are the sweetest dogs and were so good to have when my kids were little.

                      We are Lab people too in my house. Ours is no longer with us, but when my husband sees a lab, be it black, chocolate or white, he usually goes to talk to the walker and hopefully can pet the dog. He just loves labs.
                      Pit Bulls and some other dog breeds are pack dogs and I am very sorry to hear what happened to that older couple. That is horrifying.
                      If you remember the original Magnum PI TV series with Tom Selleck, there were always two Dobermans that came to greet Magnum. Dobermans are usually trained to be guard dogs.

                        The last black Lab I had was a female and her name was Julie. I got her when she was 5 weeks old and had her until she was 16, she got sick and we had to put her down. A very sad day for all of us.
                        I remember the TV series with Tom Selleck, but I don't remember the dogs.

                          Muzette, could be caused by hypothyroidism. This can occur in any breed of dog. So sorry for what you went through.

                            Sabine - I remembered one dog was named Apolo but I had to look up the other name which was Zeus. They belonged to Higgins, the keeper of the office/estate

                              I remember Higgins , the caretaker , I loved that show. I loved most of those "old " shows, don't care for any of the new shows that are being shown now on the network channels, don't watch one single one.
                              I guess I am showing my age
