resentment and hatred..... you, yes you......not yr dog. get rid of''thet.''. it dosn't let you see or know yr dog. no such thing as''too neeeeeeedy''. yr dog loves you....because thet is the nature of dogs. learn, learn and learn. Look at yr post, what is written by you?.....you say 'don't worry, embarassed, stress, snap,late for work, my problem is....taboo [tabloid gossip], cllingy...........NO OFFENCE? all attitudes you have developed unknowingly ; how they developed. why attitudes develope, and even why you fight them; to say it is not you.....but some-one else, a dog....a cat, a brother, a country.....maybe a home? So, take a pause......later a paw's....because gratitude...*.GRATITUDE*, WILL DISPLACE ATTITUDES . we do not know everything there is to know about living, but LIVING is giving; and we cannot give what we do not have. and you have a good courageous start by asking for help. In learning, every thing we daily, hourly take part in has a beginning in fear or faith....and both you ,+ yr dog are the result of faith....''thet , which makes us, gives us life and breath is faith, faith to make bone, tissue, blood, lymph, hair or fur; and countless abilities, the ability to read, write, type,...TO ''SHARE'' our lives. fear warns us of dangers; but also tries to yield to faith. sometimes children are afraid to go to school, arithmetic, spelling, but after a while....they can write, recite,send e-mails.....they are in line with faith, with their true ''HO...ME'' Nature. yr dog sence, needs help1 DOGS accept yr home as their home. they say feed me, walk me, bath me,cuddle me, brush me, and yes hug me....AND 'I' WILL GIVE YOU MY LIFE! MY HOPES, MY DREAMS, i WILL WALK BESIDE YOU, YOU CAN WALK BESIDE ME, NO.....WE CAN WALK TOGETHER....THET'S THE REAL ''KNOW'' Please....we can walk together. the changes from attitude to Grattituded, are like holding hands, instead of punching. Thanks for AND to ''yr DOG''
