|So....last Sunday, I got in a fight with my Aunt Jenn's dog Nanners.
Nanners is typically the BBW brown lab type that I really go for, but when Nanners came in the house, we were in a narrow space, so I had to prove myself to her. I didn't bite her, just growled and snapped and pushed. She freaked out and bit my face.
Good thing we were both on leashes so Mama and Aunt Jenn were able to pull us apart. Nanners was fine, which Mama was worried about because she has seen me go after smaller dogs and scratch them.
But, you may now address me as Scarface.
I have a big gash on my lip flap, a gash across the bridge of my nose and a scratch on my actual nose. Aunt Jenn felt sooooo bad about it. Mama was very calm and washed me up and put antibiotic ointment on my boo-boos. She also laced some peanut butter with nyquil so I would conk out and not scratch.
I'm doing better, but I just scratched the scab off the big one today. Mama thinks I should have gotten stitches maybe, but as long as it looks clean and healing, she's just going to let it be.
Afterwards, I went up to Nanners and was kinda submissive (I wasn't about to have those massive jaws eat my face again!). Who knows, maybe we'll be better next time now that it has been established what the boundaries are? Maybe it's enclosed spaces.
We're going to try again, carefully, but Mama and Aunt Jenn do think Nanners and I can be friends. We walk for miles together without fighting. I check on her, she checks on me, and we just do our thing.
Ugh. My perfect profile is now marred. I supposed it makes me more manly, though.
