I am really put out. All of Nancy's attention has been toward me in the past. I didn't mind when I shared her with Lizzie because I loved Lizzie, too, but a couple of weeks ago she got a brand new dog. I couldn't believe my eyes. And, she moved my bed and let him have MY SPOT. Now I have to sleep on the couch all the time! I don't even like his smell. I don't know what breed he is, but he's stupid looking, in my opinion.
Nancy adores him and pays strict attention to him about three times per day; he sleeps the rest of the time--lazy dog.
Yesterday, I decided to put an end to the attention that this mutt is stealing from me. When Nancy is playing with him I go over and slip my head under her knee so the two of them can't move, and I did it, again, this morning and he punched me in the mouth! Nancy would usually protect me against other dogs, but she actually scolded ME!! She claims she still loves me, but she's playing with him to keep her legs strong because her back hurts and she can't walk--RIGHT! You think I believe that? NOT! Does she think I fell off a turnip truck? Little by little I'll figure out a way to run this guy out of my house--I want MY space and Nancy back to myself. I'm more than a little miffed at her--as she pushed me away this morning, she said, "Drat, I wish I had my camera." She thinks it's funny when another dog tries to beat me up! Next thing I know he'll be eating my sweet potato chips!
