Hey....it's always gotta be something with some folks....and passing the buck or blaming something else is always a good way to go.
Rationalizing one's shortcomings is certainly en vogue as culpability is a dying trait.
I'm sure this other person who blames you and your dog has a mantra which might sound something like this..." You are only as good as your next excuse".
Harry and Lola has it proper.

Yep, it is always easier to blame someone or something else instead of pointing the finger at ourselves.
I have lost track of the stuff my dogs have gotten blamed for over the years. Global warming, world hunger.

|kbella999||I know many people that will blame their dogs bad behavior on something else. Sad that it could be easily fixed with just a bit of training but I guess they would rather blame others.|

blahhh don't worry about it, people see things for what they really are and people will see her dog is the way it is because of her. Distance yourself from her and let her blame you or every one in the whole wide world if she wants - people will know it is her problem.
Yesterday I'm walking my 2 GSDs, they are calm, walking nicely, no problems. There is a lady walking ahead of us with a little white fluffy on lead the little white fluffy sees us and starts barking and lunching, the lady can't control her little white fluffy, my 2 GSDs couldn't care less, but the look I got off this woman was like - 'how dare you walk 2 GSDs behind us' LOL

Rant: Apparently my dog is the reason her dog has bad manners..
Apparently, someones dog jumps up on people, because my dog.. upsets her.. Clearly, since this happened before Zelda was around, and clearly because it happens also when Zelda isn't around. Its quite clear to me, my dog stresses her dog out to the point of jumping on people who are sitting on the couch, standing, or standing from a distance and for other reasons..
Or maybe.. Just perhaps maybe! Your dog is untrained. WOW what does that mean you might ask? Maybe you should train her to greet people without jumping, maybe teach her not to run and jump on people, to the point of almost knocking them over and with the mouth open and making their lip bleed! Maybe you need to work on manners and stop ASKING her to jump up on you! (Reinforcer much?!) Maybe you shouldn't get so worked up when i point out the fact that maybe you should train her to do something else than jump on people for greetings, or to jump on you when she is "nervous" or wanting to go out to go bathroom.. And not say, "Theresa (thats me) you dont know everything." WOW tell me something i dont already know! As if my dog is perfect? NO, anything but perfect. I don't blame your dog for Zelda's problems.. But when you said, "I noticed just now that my dog tends to jump on people when she is upset because of your dog." (who is barking at her dog to play. Okay.. well maybe that could be a partially true statement? But what about all the other times your dog jumps up on people? How does that fit in? But oh no she doesn't think it started until Zelda..
Apparently my dog also causes other dogs to have problems including jumping up on people in a very rude way (like a 70 pound dog shouldn't!), she probably uses a jedi mind trick, you know like when she is greeting people when my dog isn't around.
I wouldn't care so much about it all, and i wouldn't even have given her advice on training-if she didn't blame her dog jumping problem on my dog. Her dog also has the tendency to become a brick wall when you try to move her out of the way or push her off bed because she won't leave the bed by command. She also has to be in your face all the time and is very rude with food. Maybe they all have something in common? Lack of guidance/training? I'm sorry but my dog has enough problems, she doesn't also need the label of, "Dog that makes other dogs do rude things, like jumping on people with mouth open."
UGH! I just.. don't even care if you like my dog, just don't accuse her of things that are because of your laziness- and lack of training.
Okay thanks for letting me rant, i feel better already
