Sick Pup and Vicious Pup
Martin stayed home sick today with a bit of a stomach bug and Baba and Desi have been having a few more of their "scuffles." It's troubling. Desi and Baba's scuffles, that is. It's turf war issues, of course. Baba is older and wiser, he thinks. But Desi is an intact male, thus he has testosterone bubbling to the surface and they get into "alpha dog" play challenges that get out of hand and erupt into Cujo-like attacks that are scary and sad cause I want them to get along. Today was the first time they didn't seem to snap out of it right away, and when Desi jumped back on the bed a half an hour later Baba growled and gave him a look. Dah, I'm sad...sniff, sniff. Might be time, indeed, to do the big snip--to DESI, NOT Martin! NO SNIPPING MY MARTIN!
