Ok, so obviously, it was love at first site for Pittie boy and I, but that is how I ended up with 5 other dogs in my modest smallish house (unadopted rescues) and there just isn't room for one more not only space wise but due to our GSD being dog aggressive (which was my fault, long story) Ugh. This feels like trouble. I tried to convince my 80 year old mom she needed him in her yard and she could name him Dean Martin (Her fave comedian/singer) BUT I just learned he is uncontainable. He literally tore apart the chain link from the kennel frame when I walked away from him today after feeding him. (I mean he ripped that chain link like it was silly string) Then lept the fence around our back yard when he saw me in the front yard. I guess he is in love too? He's barely an adult, I would estimate. I had to trick him into staying in the back yard by going in the back door (where he promptly parked himself) while I snuck out the front. (As I was picking up sticks and limbs in the back yard today , he got nervous and ran from me, which obviously would lead one to believe he has been hit with something similar before thus making me less inclined to search out his former home).
Now to top it off, my sister, her daughter and my great nieces all from the east coast just advised me they'd like to come out and stay with me.......TOMORROW. I rarely get to see them, maybe once a year, but 4 more people in our small house and since I can't put all the dogs in the yard at once right now....this is going to be tricky. Not to mention, my guess would be my niece is going to freak out at the 'idea' of a pit bull being around her smaller kids (They like to play in the yard and on the trampoline).
How do I always find myself in these situs? The impossible ones?
Oh and diet? Exercise? Raking leaves and Tofurkey Philly Cheese STeaks, that was the best I can do for this weekend.
