man and his dog

Sunny’s made a new friend. She planted herself in front of an old man waiting to pick up his dog. She was so happy with his attention & rubs, she wouldn’t budge.

Here’s a tip for you guys. When you know your animal is nervous around other animals, keep it close to you and away from other animals.
By doing this, you are avoiding making a scene and possibly hurting another animal or another person.

I got into the elevator today with my dog and there was another dog. I immediately said to the owner “She’s very friendly,” because my dog is a pit, and there’s a horrible stigma on pits.

He let his dog sniff mine, I let mine sniff his, and when his dog began to growl, I brought my dog behind me to keep her safe.

Instead of doing the correct thing, which is to pull back a bit on the leash and then move your dog away with your hands or legs, without yelling, this man does the opposite.
He flung his dog back by the leash and forced it to hit the back of the elevator, all the while yelling “NO!”

Then, he said to me “Your dog is too big and made her scared.” Which is another wrong thing to do.

Folks. Never accuse the other animal if your animal is the one to act up.

Say something like “sorry, my dog doesn’t handle bigger dogs well.” This gets across the same message without accusations.

Tl;dr
If your dog doesn’t play well with others, keep it close and don’t blame other friendly dogs when your dog is mean to the friendly dog.

Here is a selection of works from Goya’s famous ‘Black Paintings’ series, which consists of fourteen murals that were painted directly onto the walls of the Quinta del Sordo house in Madrid, where the artist lived between 1819 and 1823. They have since been removed, transferred to canvases, and become part of the Museo del Prado’s collection.

The series is pretty dark, to say the least. It is rife with themes of witchcraft, insanity, violence and death’s inevitability. My personal favourite is Saturn Devouring his Son, which is based on the story of Saturn’s Greek counterpart, Cronus, and how he ate his sons after hearing that they would eventually overthrow him. However, Saturn/Cronus was tricked by Rhea into swallowing a stone instead of one of his children. This son, of whom Rhea was the mother, was Zeus, and he would eventually have Cronus and the other titans imprisoned. Goya’s depiction is deliciously gory and terrifying. Saturn’s face is enough to give you nightmares!

When I pay you to babysit my dog I expect you to keep up his Instagram account. I didn’t give you his password for nothing.
