Awe… Looking at this Doe-eyed dog you would never think she could be so uncompromising, right? I mean really, look at that sweet innocent little face and how comfortable she looks.
Nah, she is the most unpredictable little thang. “Pinky” has this ability from being so unbelievably lovable and cuddly to growling, with hunches upward and snarling at you over covers or a comfortable robe you are wearing.
“Pinky” goes from the 0 to 60 in a matter of seconds with changing her attitude towards anyone who tries to even get under the covers at night. One night, in particular, I had gotten up to go to the bathroom. It was 2am, and when I returned she put up a tremendous fight with me to get back under the covers.
She put her whole body weight of 65 lbs standing and staring overtop of me and growling. This was probably one of the scariest uncompromising positions to be dealt with. I eased out of the bed and went downstairs to retrieve a small rawhide bone in order for her to move to the other side of the bed because she refused to get off the bed and/or leave the bedroom altogether. After this little ordeal, it took a long period to fall back to sleep again because I was fearful of the next thing she would/would not do. But, after her bone…she rolled back over and went fast to sleep again.
The following morning I informed my roommate of her behavior and proceeded to tell her that I would not allow “Pinky” back in the bed at night. I refuse to go through that ever again. That same morning, I awoke to this sweet little dog lying in my bed being all sorts of adorable, and licking my face off. Go figure?
I simply won’t take the chances again, that’s all there is to it.
