kato age two

Canine Jihad

All things will pass.

Abe and Java are now so alienated, so at each others throats that drastic measures have been taken. A&J are fine with the pup Kato. Fine with humans. Fine with Lindsay. But not each other. Kato is the innocent, unknowing, catalyst for this chaos.

We are living by strict pack controlling rules. Dog musical chairs. Its hard work, exhausting and very stressful. Blood, sweat and tears, many, many tears. But thats the nature of having rescues and not robots.

And no ones going anywhere. Not Kato - the newcomer. Not Java. Not Abe. Thats not possible, its the unthinkable. We love them all too much and equally. We will find the way. Even if it means a 10k heated dog run kennel with TV & Jacuzzi & room service type installation.

While it's normal pack behaviour and only temporary, they must be driving you nuts (as well as each other).
Its been quite vicious and pretty scary. Just got to keep calm and see out this storm. The house/garden is big enough to accommodate two dogs who hate each other. The vet, yesterday, tried to advise but then he mentioned rehoming and me and hippy both switched off.

Its wierd - A&K&L are happy to snuggle and wander about together, as are J&K&L. Lindsay gets a bit pist off with Kato for worrying at her mouth. Must think Lindsay is her Mum. Though she also thinks hippy is her Mum.

House smells like zoo but Kato is doing OK at potty training for her age. Not sure she has linked the reward of immense fuss to her actions yet though.
