I removed the Cone of Shame tonight as the odds of him being able to get at the stitch are...slight. Since then he has been purring at the top of his lungs and lying on his back in celebration. Biopsy due back next week,

Thank you, Bart; he has pulmonary rum edema. No, wait, that's *you*! :lol:

It was benign, thank the FSM. It was a very expensive trip, but Dom has been a yeoman cat over the years and has more than earned the care.

If only we had a "National Pet Health Service"...it is so very expensive...especially if you own a dog who likes to bite other dogs!

That really sucks, Roy. At least you tried. You are doing the only thing you can do at this point. If Mrs. H. is afraid of Molly, and even a large person like you has that level of difficulty controlling her, unless you have the option of moving to a large farm in the country in the next few days, the only thing you can do is bring her back.

So sorry, Roy. I agree with ET, at this point you probably would be best giving Molly to a shelter that may be able to find a better home for her. I know that you love Molly and are concerned for her welfare. You may be thinking that if you aren't there to take care of her she won't be able to survive, but you need to put yourself and your family first.

That's really hard, Roy. You did your best for the dog and it looks like it's not going to work. I imagine you got her from rescue after an irresponsible, ignorant owner had failed to socialise her. Possibly she had been trained to fight; that happened to us with Tom, a rescue Staffie who in the end was considered too dangerous and had to be put down. A young Staffie can be allowed to go beyond a point from which it can never recover. Still, you may win and I hope you do.

A muzzle is now a must. You may find that she ignores a choke chain howver hard you jerk. Good luck!

How is she around Milo, same sort of aggression or is she okay with him?
"How is it that hardly any major religion has looked at science and concluded, 'This is better than we thought! The Universe is much bigger than our prophets said, grander, more subtle, more elegant. God must be even greater than we dreamed'? Instead they say, 'No, no, no! My god is a little god, and I want him to stay that way.'" - Carl Sagan

"To doubt everything or to believe everything are two equally convenient solutions; both dispense with the necessity of reflection." - Henri Poincaré

Still no newts in the pond. You may remember I introduced tiny baby newts a year or so ago. Earlier this year my youngest daughter found a dead adult newt right next to the pond so my hopes went up, but there's been no sign of a live one. :cry:

Sorry that your new dog is such a handful Roy. Much as you'd love to give her a good home, she obviously has some really bad issues that only a pro can handle. You and the Mrs. tried and that's all you can do.
Best to give her up than to have someone file a complaint against her and she has to be put down.
