Donovan's Days

In mid-February Mom brought home a half-grown puppy named Dazzler. He was supposed to be her new service dog when I retire (years and years from now). Dazzler turned out to be a real problem dog. He leapt with great force up on people. While leaping he chomped on people. He had no idea how to do something easy. He especially liked to leap on Mom and chew on her. Mom finally figured out how to keep him from doing that. But nothing would stop Dazzler from leaping up on others and chomping on their arms. Luckily, the three people that had blood drawn by Dazzler were men. Men are less likely to freak out over things like that, though one did. In fact if it hadn't been for him freaking out Mom would never have known about the blood being drawn. The freaking out man told Mom that if Dazzler drew blood on him one more time he was turning Dazzler in to the police. The freaking out man also told Mom who the other man who had blood drawn by Dazzler was. The third man who got blood drawn by Dazzler was right in front of Mom when it happened. Mom was appalled when it happened. Especially since the man was trying to help her control Dazzler. The final straw was the Thursday afternoon when Dazzler, after not being allowed to attack two strange dogs, attacked Donovan. Dazzler latched onto the left side of Donovan's head, and had to be pulled off. The lady who pulled Dazzler off Donovan is a dog trainer. She said two things: First, that now that Dazzler had attacked Donovan he would continue to do so, and could not be in the same space as Donovan; Second, that Donovan may have deliberately gotten in Dazzler's way to stop Dazzler from attacking Mom. Dazzler went straight to a boarding facility where he stayed until Saturday morning. Mom picked him up then and took him to Poway where he was picked up by his breeder.

The breeder is unwilling to give Mom back the money Mom paid in good faith for Dazzler. The head trainer says we will take her to court if we have to.

Now. In four months, give or take a week or two, Mom will have a new, real, little, puppy. This puppy will be an eight to ten week old labradoodle. This labradoodle will be chocolate, and will be less than half poodle. The mother is three-quarters poodle, and the father is a labrador. So it should be an interesting looking dog. Mom wants to call the puppy Jethro if it's a male; and Ziva, if it's a female. In the meantime, Mom is going to enjoy the peace and quiet of having just me, Donovan.
