Mahalos, dawgluver and cheryl j, Vito was 125 pounds of love, but heaven help you if you tried to mess with 'the girl' (that's me) or 'the mom' (my mother who lived with us) he was VERY protective, but what a sweet boy (he was 'the boy'). Our grand-newphew was his best buddy, along with his dog Crombie and his Mom-Liz (our niece), he could here their truck coming from miles away and would go nuts out in the front yard waiting for them to arrive...

Thanks LP. Our daughter is getting used to being a cat-free house by watching birds at her guy friend's house. A beautiful male cardinal was sitting on the fence yesterday - she sent us a picture of her "new pet".

Vito was a gorgeous dog K-girl. It hurts no matter how long they're gone for, human or pet.

So true CG, so true.

K-Girl, Vito reminds me of my sister's GSD years ago, Simon. Similar markings and gentle nature. He was trained as a guard dog by our next door neighbour but only gentle commands. My sister and her friend went to California one summer and camped out. They took Simon with them and left him in the tent with most of their belongings either in the tent or the car beside it while they went swimming in the ocean. A guy tried to rob them. He went to the tent first and he was able to unzip the tent and go in. However, when he turned around, there was Simon between him and the entrance, just sitting there - no growling or barking. Some other people saw this and called the police. Simon sat there until my sister came and called him off (in German as that is how he was trained).

I was wondering if anyone has some thoughts on this. I feel so bad for Vi and helpless. The kids were gentle with her last time they were here, and she was okay, but still stayed close to me so I could protect her. And she is shaking at every single noise she hears.

Poor Violet. Could she use a doggy antidepressant like Prozac? Or an anti-anxiety med? They're having a lot of success using people drugs on dogs.

My little Maltese is very snippy and snappy with strangers. Doesn't warm up easily. My next door neighbor is trying to make friends with him so he will let her pet him or pick him up.Three times now she has come over when we had him out and has been feeding him small pieces of deli turkey, with our permission. Guess what he's doing now? Standing at the door and barking to go out, then when we let him out he runs straight for her door. I guess her little ploy worked! LOL

Work with me too. But not for deli turkey. I have my standards.
