Today, my father visited from Colorado. It had been a long time since I had seen him. He enjoyed seeing all the animals. Rene’ even nuzzled his hand. I was surprised she was willing to extend herself to a man after her past abuse. The dogs were all fine except for Carson, who was banished to the back yard. I tried to introduce him to my Dad, but he was intent on going after the perceived threat to his “Mommy”. Carson is a real character. He is happy and loving, but he plays life by his rules. I am sure his past was rough on him. He insists on being in charge around here, and at his age, I don’t expect him to change. It disturbs me when people give up on an animal because it doesn’t fit into the mold they had in mind. Animals are unique and none are perfect. Most of their behavioral problems stem from abuse and mismanagement. I would no sooner discard a less than perfect animal any more than I would throw away an imperfect child.
