    DefaultGood Thoughts Please

    Bo is at home with a hole in his chest. Little brother bit him last week and it decided to absess. Bo is not happy. They were suppose to be neutered this week, but Bo is at a halt for that. Luke is going in still, but that isn't going to solve the aggression issues that Bo has towards him. Hopefully, in a couple weeks I can reschedule Bo's surgery and be on the road to no more testosterone. It isn't a quick fix, but just taking the edge off would help.

    I am at my wits end with the non-stop growling and bickering. It doesn't always end up in a scuffle, but when it does (once every 2 months or so) it tears on my nerves and heart strings.

    Good thoughts are needed all around in this household. We have Cain and Abel syndrome. (And getting rid of one is not an option at this point. I am exhausting my options before thinking about that.)

    Thanks for any positives that you can give.

    You got it.
    I didn't realize they didn't get along very well.

    Actually, they get along great, until one leaves the room and comes back in. They sleep together, play together, everything. Have since day 1. Their issues start when one is getting more attention than the other, one has something that the other wants, or the pecking order needs to be reestablished when one returns to a room. Neither one wants to back down. Bo is usually the one who starts the low growling. I have caught Luke cutting his eyes, but not all the time.

    I have spoken to a behaviorist and the first suggestion, after implementing the crates, was neutering. They used to not really have their own separate areas, and the crates resolved that. Things have been ok for several months, but this past week (I have been traveling alot, and that may be a major factor) they have been practically trying to kill each other. Time and money are not on my side.

    I am sorry to hear this. I guess I have been lucky with my boys because (knocking on wood quickly) they have never had any issues with each other. There is the occasional "back off" warning over toys, but that is all. They were both neutered when they were just at a year old so maybe that helped. Good Luck and I hope that Bo feels better soon.
