So my boyfriend has this friend who is one of those people that thinks all animals love him. Which is fine, whatever, but he purposely does things I have asked him not to do with my dogs.
Eko does love him, big shock, he loves everyone, but my big issue is that he "makes out" with him. He lets Eko lick the inside of his mouth for minutes at a time and it's really loud and sloppy and disgusting.... it makes everyone uncomfortable and I have asked him to stop but he does it anyway. I almost feel he does it to spite me. He also calls Eko like seconds after I've called him and clings to him the whole time he's there. Whatever, Eko is fine with it, it irks me but I just deal with it since he's my boyfriend's friend and I don't want to start anything.
But yesterday, he picked up my new ABPT puppy without asking and put her in his lap. Xena is EXTREMELY fearful of people and hasn't even really warmed up to our roommates yet, she JUST got used to my boyfriend after a week. I told him this the first time he came over after we got her. I was so mad I yelled at him and he just gave me this look like I was stupid and said, "Well she looks fine, she's not snapping at me or trying to get away." She was PETRIFIED, shaking like a leaf and just drooling nonstop, she wasn't not trying to get away she couldn't move! I took her from him and put her away, he has completely set back her training I had gotten her to a point where she would approach strangers after a while instead of just hiding behind me quivering til they left, now when someone comes over she bolts from the room.
I have to start from square one now because this jerk thinks he knows more than me about MY dogs. Now I'm just considering putting the dogs in the crate every time he comes over, I hate to do that to them but I don't know what else to do.
