Somehow, Audrey volunteered me to sober cab her and 4 other women tomorrow night for a bachelorette party. At least I know all of them and they're only going to The Mall of America. I only have to make a trip up to drop them off and then pick them back up. Should be interesting, 5 woman cops/ex-cops on a bender.
I've already had a lady tell me today that I condemned her dog to death. I was asked to test a 15 month intact male GSD for intake. I call the woman and she tells me that he's already bit 2 people because he's "very protective". She said he also bit a trainer she hired to help her.
I called the trainer, a pretty good one that MARS has referred people to in the past.
Trainer tells me the dog needs to be euthanized, immediately. Dog guards everything, plus is geafear aggressive. This guy doesn't just give up on dogs and has even recommended surrender to a better owner. Trainer was nipped by the dog when he tried to take the lead from the owner. He avoided the bite and took the dog away from the owner to work him. Dog started out ok, but as soon as he got a little stressed, he redirected to the trainer and landed 3 full mouth bites up and down his arm.
I trust the trainer enough to not even see the dog. I called the woman back and told her I talked to her trainer and that our rescue wouldn't even consider the dog. She got mad at me and said I was killing her dog. Yep, that's me, Clark W Griswold, dog killer.
It's only 0800, but I wan't a Scotch.
He is your friend, your partner, your defender, your dog. You are his life, his love, his leader. He will be yours faithful and true~ to the last beat of his heart. You owe it to him to be worthy of such devotion. ~unknown
