It was just me mom and dad on the farm. I was lonely.. All my brothers and sisters were gone and I wasn’t used to it. I was moms favourite, dads not so much. I tried to play with him but he would just growl at me & id get scared so eventually I stayed away. Our owner loved cuddling us. Me and mom slept in bed with her and I eventually quit fretting for my brothers and sisters.
I had all the love I needed, I was content, happy and life was just great.
Things changed drastically when the owners of our farm wanted their house back. We moved to another smaller farm. I like to roam like my dad, me mom and dad would chase the neighbours turkeys. Mom would give them to me and I’d kill them.
We weren’t in there long…. I don’t know what happened.
From there we moved into town. I went with my owner and dad. Mom went with my owners mom. I needed my mom, it got hard without her. Dad was jealous of me, and would try to attack me. Only because mom wasn’t there to look out for me.
My owner put me outside, she tied me up and i had my own kennel. I didn’t like that, I cried for weeks! I didn’t belong there, I missed her bed, I missed my mom, u missed my freedom.
So I played up, if I got off my chain I’d go next door to the old lady’s house and walk in her gardens, my owner would see me and tell me to come home. I’d listen. The old lady told the people from dog jail that I bit her. I was harmless, I never would have bit a human. She lied. She just didn’t like my crying at all hours of the night and morning and she wanted us out.
My owner got fed up with the drama so we moved again. I was 2 by then and this would be the last house I ever lived at.
My dad and I clashed a lot, he hardened me up. He would attack me if I was too close to him, and growl at me while I was eating and I would just take it, he was the alpha. By then I was used to being outside, we were on opposite sides of our yard.
One day I’d had enough! My owner wasn’t paying much attention to me anymore and I attacked dad pretty bad. So bad he needed medical attention.
He backed off after that and eventually came right health wise. Mentally I was angry.
