Why can't my dog be normal?

Post by Shalista » Thu Feb 16, 2017 8:11 pm

It's a victoria article that i saw posted on facebook but i wanted to share it here to. So many times I cried because i just wanted a nice 'normal' dog. This article made me feel so much better. (and inspired me to dole out some extra zucchini slices to my not so normal dog)

I feel like so many people who come to this board just need a reminder that no matter how crazy their dog may seem they shouldn't compare to other 'normal' dogs.

Halleluja to that :D I'm another who has shed tears over my dog's issues but the day I decided to stop working on what could easily be managed and to accept him and enjoy him for what he was was a real turning point.

He's a 'special needs' dog and always will be. If people think I'm overprotective or ruled by him because I won't leave him in someone's care and can't go out if it clashes with his walk time, tough.
