Other dogs, people
Anywhere quiet and calm
Jack had a terrible start to life. His mother was killed when he and his siblings were 6 weeks old, and he was living in a barn with minimal human contact until 12 weeks of age. I expected a few problems, as he'd not had a dog there teaching him what was appropriate. I got him into classes early on, did all the socialisation, made sure he was UTD on training, made sure his experiences with dogs and people were good, fun ones. I thought we'd managed to curb any bad behaviour that might've been caused by his first few weeks on earth, but at 7 months old, all of his problems showed themselves at once. It was literally over night. He became aggressive to all people apart from me, dogs, even dogs he'd lived with his entire life. I had him checked by multiple vets, took him to behaviourists who sent me to trainers, who sent me to other trainers and vets and behaviourists...I was told several times that he suffered from Fear Aggression and Anxiety. We got by using two muzzles, a car harness for the handle, a halti, a check collar and a reflective jacket. Indoors, if I was having company, Jack would be muzzled and behind a baby gate until said company left. When Jack was 17 months old (previously having attacked two of my other dogs - no damage) I had to, unexpectedly, foster an 8 week old puppy. When Jack tried to attack the pup for no reason, enough was enough. On the 20th of January 2011, Jack was put to sleep at 4:45PM. He was 17 months old, and had been with me for 15 months.

It's been nearly a year since I was last scared.
I'm now happy, but mum is still sad.
I approved of Kay before I left. It helps mum, knowing that I was comfortable with Kay.
Mum can do everything with Kay, that she wanted to with me. I hear she can even take Kay to see other dogs now! Mum still misses me, though.
People always assume mum replaced me with Kay. Surely, if mum had wanted to replace me with Kay, she'd have thought of Kay, as me, at least once? I know she hasn't.
Mum doesn't talk about me. Even after all this time, she's still too sad.
She used to wonder how you can think about the same thing every day, but mum realised that she's actually thought about me every single day, no matter what. It's uaully at night, when she's trying to sleep, but I'm always there.
And that's what comforts mum the most.
I'm still right at your feet, tripping you over. My heart I just can't beat anymore. ♥
