D'Elle Posted May 15, 2006 Report Share Posted May 15, 2006 Well the new foster dog seems to be doing ok. He's very confused, and will take some time, but I think he has potential to be a really good dog. One thing, though.....Jester has his nose seriously out of joint. The minute he saw me get out of the truck with this dog he had the scene figured out, and the look on his face was something else. Within 5 minutes he'd gone for the new boy, and I have never before seen him attack another dog like that without serious provocation. No harm was done; he quit as soon as I yelled NO, and the foster dog did not reciprocate. But now Jester isn't eating. Not a bite since thursday (I brought home the foster dog on Friday). I make sure Jes goes through the door and gate first, gets fed first, gets preferential treatment, gets the treat first, the water first when we were hiking yesterday. But he's still very put out. I don't blame him, but should I worry if he doesn't start eating soon? I wish I could just explain to him that the red dog is *temporary*.! - D'Elle, a somewhat worried brand new Foster Mom Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
