TROUBLE what to do?
Well for all my boasting about how well it was going with Izzy and the new puppy...things have taken a turn for the worse.
First week the 8 month old was totally ignored...second week some, growling, nipping, running around and playing (somewhat, to a concerned mother, a little much). Although the puppy always came back to play and was really the aggresive one! Things seemed to settle down somewhat but.........this week Izzy is getting really aggravated with the little one....pins her down and does not let her get away...puppy is yipping and howling, but Izzy is evidently determined to teach her to stop pulling on her hair and jumping on her back.
This happens more often in the yard where the puppy has no place to hide...but also happens in the house intermittently. Should I stop it or just let Izzy teach this rowdy youngster some manners. I don't want her to get hurt and certainly don't want my usually mild mannered Izzy to turn into a monster.
Any and all suggestions would be appreciated....thanks.
Still don't have a name for the puppy...family has given me till Wednesday to decide!
