Holy attack cats, Batman!
I've been kicking around the idea of a dog for a long LONG time and I'd just about talked myself into it. I'm a LOT more fit now and a walking/hiking buddy seemed like just the thing. I talked to a few rescues and found a wonderful prospect.
I had my home visit tonight and WOW, what a fiasco. I rushed home from work to tidy, run the vacuum, and clean the litterboxes. The woman was 30 minutes late (she got lost).
She brought her dog with her to see how my cats would reach....... MowMow of course hid, I expected that. I knew Shepherd Book would puff up and posture but I did NOT expect a full assault on that poor little dog. He went crazy!!
She finally put the poor dog in its crate for its own safety and Book went ballistic attacking the outside of the crate. When I tried to pick him up to lock him in the other room he redirected his aggression to me.
She took the dog out after I chased Book away with a water bottle and when she came back in alone he SEEMED calmer, until he started sniffing her and then he attacked her.
So, it looks like NO dog for me ...for the foreseeable future. He's STILL (hours later) circling where the crate was and growling....
