    Never get in the way of my cranky old dog called Toby and anything that moves. Arthritis has slowed him down, but his attitude says “get outta my space!”.

    I warmed up 2 delicious hot cross buns and smeared them with butter. I put the on the couch and went to grab something from upstairs. On my return my border collie Ollie had devoured them both and was sitting in my spot on the couch licking his lips.

    My chihuahua loved her family and was very protective. She would bite everyone elses ankles; Even after she got old and lost her teeth – only then it was more of a suck than a bite :/

    We decided to cut back on our treats for our little dog.
    We received a bout of attitude, a defiance beyond words!! Snubbing us when she lay next to me, then proceeded to limp!!
    I took her to the vet as I was beside myself, thinking she had herself.
    My dog hates the vet and starts shaking and clawing my neck.
    The vet said , put her down and let me see her walk.
    Well , low and behold, no limp!!!
    He said Chihuahuas tend to do that, as they are spoilt and will display attitude if not given something they normally get.
    She is so cheeky, thank heavens she was ok….. but the next day……she started limping on her other paw!!
    Ha ha

      Not getting her daily quantity of treats, my little chihuahuas attitude rises its ugly head and plays on her misfortune with limping!!

    We have an 80kg, 2 year old mastiff and like a typical two year old, he has been known to throw a couple tantrums. The most memorable was just recently when we set up the xmas tree! He growled and wined, refused to come inside, even ignoring an offer of treats.
