Reply to "Dog in Mourning?"

What is interesting about Dad and the Dog is that we got Cruiser a month before Dad had his stroke on Christmas Day. Dad hardly had time to get to know Cruiser because he wouldn't allow dogs upstairs and that was where Dad was all the time. Dad never fed him either and only petted him once or twice it seems. So what we did when we got Cruiser was get a dog trainer out and an electric fence so Cruiser could be outside all the time.

Then, that is when Dad came home on hospice after being in the hospital for three months the first time in 2003. So, needless to say, the dog training went on the back burner... But, I think, even though Cruiser hardly ever got to see Dad, he was still somehow Dad's dog. I don't think I realized that. But, on the other hand, when Dad would catch him sneaking upstairs Dad had the bigger bark. He would laugh as Cruiser turned tail and ran... How I miss those days...

So, I guess I am rambling on some more and trying to understand the whole thing still. I can see from all your postings that I have to be strong here or we will have Glenda well-trained pretty soon. Aaaccccccckkk! He is such a strong willed teenager...

Love and Hugs from Glenda
