The bf's dog, Raven, used to be such a well-mannered dog. She'd listen to everything and was just generally well-behaved. Now, I'm not sure what's wrong, but the dog is such a pain in the... yeah. My theory on her not listening anymore is because she's mad at me because I "stole her boyfriend". I think she hates me now because the boyfriend doesn't spend as much time with her, and because she gets in trouble when he's playing with the kids and she tries to barge in. She won't listen to me worth a darned anymore. I can't even take her out to go potty without her running. She won't go if I take her on the leash. I've had people knocking on the door to return our dog. Once, she ran when I was letting her pee before the kids and I went to Walmart. I said screw it, I wasn't driving the streets to look for her. I returned two hours later and had a note on the door from someone in the next town over. I called and they returned the dog that "listens so well, she's such a good, well-trained dog!" Then, the boyfriend comes home and gives me holy heck because he doesn't want anything to happen. She's a pitty and since most people assume that they're aggressive, he's afraid that they'll try to hurt her. Anyways, I'm seriously going to tell the boyfriend that he's going to have to figure something else out, because I refuse to take her out anymore. I refuse to be held responsible because the dog doesn't listen to me. I'm just so fed up with this dog that it's not even funny. If the boyfriend didn't like her so much, I'd have told the other people to keep her if they wanted her. That, or shoot the darned thing. We can't afford to buy electric fencing or a shock collar, especially since I'm really the only one she refuses to listen to. I've just had it with this dog. Anyways, end rant.
