It may sound shocking, but I despise my dog. I despise
She's a Jack Russel Terrier, and she's the most selfish, moody, cold-hearted animal I have ever seen. She pouts dramatically and enjoys wallowing in it; she LOVES the attention she receives when my parents feel sorry for her and buy into her pitiful "pity me, I'm a helpless dog" scheme. She nastily snaps at my new kitten whenever he's near her, and if she's in one of her moods, he'd better watch out. She actually punctured his cheek with one of her fangs. She falls into a mood whenever she doesn't get what she wants; she'll act this way until my parents will let her lick the milk bowl or they give her a piece of popcorn, and if it isn't enough for her she'll pout even more and make a big deal of it. She'll stare at you or stand in one place and she won't move
just to attract your attention so you'll give her something she wants. She's a nasty old woman.
Ugh. I'll never forgive her for hurting my kitten. He's not even a fourth of her size. She does it to the cat she grew up with too. Smudge won't even go near her anymore because she's so nasty to her.
Why did we get this dog again? Thank god she's not my dog. My parents won't let me discipline her. They say I'm abusing her if I refuse to give her some of my food and when I try to tell them to ignore her when she acts as selfishly as she does they brush me off. It's their bad behavior that's helped make her the way she is. She was naturally selfish and self-pitying (FAR more self-pitying than myself
) but their indulgence has made it far worse. GRRRR!
I love animals, and I always find a justification for their behavior, good or bad, but I just can't understand my own dog and why she acts the way she does. She's worse than a human being. I can't stand her; I've never disliked an animal before, so she's the first.
