I have just been released from doggie prison and although I have been released, I am still in deep doggie poop. I don't think my mom is going to forgive me or forget what I tried to do anytime soon. My crime? I almost bit my mom.

The story goes like this: One day mom caught me chewing at my paw and my track records show that I can gnaw at it until it is all sore and bloodied. Hence mom tried to stop me and I gave her several low warning growls as she was approaching me... Let's just say that I am like a posessed dog when I am in the midst of my paw-chewing activity. As she smacked my bum to try and distract/ stop me, I, ummm... in mom's own words 'charged at her with all my crooked teefies bared'. Mom fell backward on her ample bum and at that moment was convinced that she'd get bitten.

As I was charging towards her, she then let out a very loud, blood curdling yell 'Huuuuuuuuskeeeeeeeeeeee' (I am sure people in our neighbouring countries could hear her) and amazingly, it snapped me out of my frenzy. After which I seemed to realize my mistake and I sidled up to her and gave her a few apologetic licks. She was so mad at me that she ignored me for a super looooong time.

Sorry mom... will you please forgive me?


Huskee's mom here... Actually I am not angry about what happened, he's only a small dog so even if he'd bitten me, the damage wouldn't be significant. I am more hurt by his intention, and it makes me want to cry. I feel so hurt and betrayed because Huskee has always been special to me... my 'little boy', and we have always had a special bond although he doesn't live with me now (he's staying with my parents and sister who live approximately 10 min away from me). He has always been very in tune with my emotions and he had accompanied me through many chapters of my life - university life, graduation, getting my first job, getting married, being pregnant with Lucas and Chloe, losing Lucas and Chloe, etc... To me, I have always regarded us as 'one team', so to see him wanting to bite me was like the ultimate 'betrayal'.

But then my heart almost broke when I saw that his little body was shaking very hard and he was panting very heavily for a long time after the incident... and the way he was trying to make it up to me was so heartwrenching too. However in order to let him know what he did was very wrong, I had to ignore him and all his efforts to try and make it up to me.

I understand, Huskee. We get more cranky as we get older and we have our moments that we wish didn't happen but we still love our moms no matter what, right?! I hope she forgives you soon. I forgive you!

Love ya lots,

We hope this is over and won't ever happen again. Sounds like he was really into the moment of foot chewing. Glad you're okay.

Peanut said...

hmm I've done that to mom but only when she's accidentally messed with my bad leg and hurt me. I wonder if your mom hurt you and didn't know it.

I is so sure that Huskee didn't mean to. Liky Khyra says, sometimes we just forget and treat our peoples like another dog.

Oh noes Huskee... we know you didn't mean it. You know, Zoe bit our mom once. Zoe was 14 at the time and miss took our mom's finger for a puperoni. It was not a bad bite at all but her feelings were hurt just like your moms. Deep down she knows that Zoe didn't mean it. Zoe just really wanted that treat :)

We believe we missed something. Why is Huskee living somewhere else?

Lots of Luv & Kisses
Addie, Lucie and Hailey

Huskee knows that what he did was wrong and he just went into crazed obsessed mode for a minute while chewing on his paw.. It's so sweet that he was so sorry about it after.. If the same thing happened to me I'd be so shocked and nervous for weeks, but you did the right thing, I think, and it won't happen. *hugs*

Dawn said...

Awww Huskee...I'm sure you feel very bad. Mom will forgive you..honest. Just try not to get so upset again, OK?

My Mind's Eye said...

Mom and I are sorry for both of you...that was a traumatic experience. Huskee was not in his right the moment...pets get zoned out when the have obessions. Madi can get in a zone when she is rubbed too much. She gets over stimulated. I have to watch her body language and back off. Hugs to you both and we hope things are better now.

Huskee, we're sure that you didn't want to hurt your mom, but the obsession to paw chew was too great to overcome, right? We hope your mom can forgive and forget soon!

Aww, geez. It hurts, I know -- it feels like rejection, it feels like betrayal, it feels like everything that you can usually count on a dog to NOT throw at you.

But when you're dealing with obsessive, instinctual behavior, it's going to short-circuit everything -- even emotional bonds that have been years in the making.

The best, the only advice is to not take it personally. Huskee is sick, not spiteful. Concentrate instead on treating and alleviating the obsessive behavior.
