Happy Monday! So, the past few days have been a bit odd and annoying. On Friday, I took my usual nap. On Saturday, my mom and my brother rolled out the smoker to smoke various things – pork butt, turkey breast, nuts (peanuts and cashews), and tomatoes. My uncle came over for dinner and it was an interesting experience – Sheba forced us to be outside as this visit showed that her problem is not with my father, but with men in general. Sure, my uncle is tall, but when he was sitting down, she wasn’t growling or barking as much. We had her come outside with us, because what animal, even a well trained one, could avoid jumping up on a counter filled with smoked meat? So whenever my dad or uncle talked when we were outside, she would occasionally growl or bark. So that went a bit… awkwardly. My uncle stayed for an hour and a half. Also on Saturday, my dad started to refuse to do things the behaviorist suggested. I literally saw him stare down the dog while she was growling at him, walk closer to her, then start growling at her in response to her growling at him. So now we have to give her back to the rescue because, to quote him, “I don’t want to have a fucking dog in my fucking house that growls at me for no reason!” So, because my dad is an ass, we have to give the dog back. Yay. He said that he “might be willing” to adopt another dog after we give Sheba back. Isn’t that just so gracious of him? In other news, I was thinking of taking a laxative today, but then it turned out I didn’t need to take it. Yay! I am guessing that the prednisone was causing the constipation, hopefully. So, see all of you on Wednesday!
