We’re experiencing some stressful stuff with our little Jack. He has proven to us that he has some real fear aggression issues, and although I know we’re going to do everything we can (with the assistance of a trainer), it’s really hard for me. Today I got to my sister’s house and immediately broke into tears. She’s the best sister in the world, so she let me cry as much as I wanted. Stevie on the other hand told me, “Stop crying Aunt Sonie, it’s annoying.” She’s not much of a comforter. She did give me a couple of hugs afterwards, but I’m pretty sure she had an ulterior motive.
It might sound ridiculous to be so emotional, and I know that for the sake of Jack, I need to keep it together. I love this dog so much though, and I worry. I worry about the future for him and us as a family, I worry for other people that make him nervous and I worry that I might not be the right person for such a nervous dog.
I welcome all comforting thoughts and comments. I need them. Jack needs them too.
