I am so very down right now. We have to get rid of our dog, Murphy. He was a rescue we adopted in January and has aggression issues that are not getting any better. He bit someone for the first time yesterday and we can't chance that happening again. I'm just so bummed about it. I adore him and he adores all of us. He was a stray before we adopted him and is so lovable and smart but he has "fear based territorial aggression" which means no one can come into our house or yard without him going nuts and trying to attack. We've done a good job up until yesterday keeping him away from people but I have a home daycare and can't risk the liability of him biting someone else. So, how does this affect my eating??? No big surprise, I've felt like binging ever since it happened. While I have not actually binged, I over ate at dinner yesterday and have not made the best choices today and I keep fantasizing about just giving in and binging on something. I don't think I will, but I wish I could do something to feel better. It's going to be heartbreaking for me and my daughters when we actually find a place for him to go. Not looking forward to it at all.
