This was a tough one for me to talk about: what happens when you feel your pet is too much? What do you do when you're over your head or at the end of your rope with a pet, particularly a dog?
Our little animal family has faced some new challenges: Happy has been attacking Sunshine as though he wants to kill her. He locks in on her, and it's gotten exponentially worse since Sunshine's started taking medication for her hypothyroidism. It has changed her smell, and Happy's prey drive is nearly irresistible.
We talk about the *most* difficult dog situations, the challenges, judgment and even shame of "failure."
How to cope when you feel you have limited choices with emotionally challenging pets.
