I posted a couple of weeks ago about my sweet, gentle sammie growling when my granddaughter Erika kept trying to climb on and ride on his back. After all your great responses and wisdom, I set boundaries (discussed with my son and his wife) on the very next visit. This last weekend I stayed overnight and watched Caleb and Erika while my son and his wife had a overnight get-away date.
I was amazed at how well my little grandkids listened and respected sam's space. He loves them and we all had a wonderful time!
Thanks again for listening.
That's great news. It's good for the kids too and may save them from getting bit in the future by a strange dog that's not as tollorant.
Great news !
Now THAT's a happy trio !! I'm so glad it worked out.
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.
