Tough Transition: Pet Owner to Parent
By Hey Lady! on September 19, 2012
The love of a pet is a unique bond but when you throw a baby in the mix, once has to make some hard decisions, especially if the already-troubled pet is unhappy about the new addition:
"The third snap at Ethan happened today. I called up Samson’s new vet to discuss our options. It’s so frustrating because the vet doesn’t want to put down a healthy dog, but neither do I! I’ve done the behavior modification. I’ve tried to keep any of Samson’s triggers out of the way, but I can’t police Samson 100 percent of the time. Today was a perfect example of how I can turn my back for just a second and somehow there’s a trigger and Samson’s snapping at Ethan."
