    Ok. I'm definitely game and fully engaged. I owe that to them. I'll feed fro hand starting at the morning feeding. I've done this before. He is fine with taking hand offerings. For his own reasons once it is in a bowl and on the ground it becomes his food. Possessive. Now let me give a bit of background which may make some difference. Newman is "special." We were told he was from a large litter in which the pups fought for teat access. Perhaps he got a bit rough but at some point his mother bit his head and shook him. This caused eye damage and neck damage. He honestly couldn't make out shapes enough not to run into them. He has worked this out and even though one eye is always dialated is able to run through the woods without running into trees. His head cock has also worked itself out. He was actually in water therapy before we got him. I just worked with him doing massage. But, this took some time and Trust. He did not even like being touched three years ago. Now he seeks it if only for a brief time. The leash walking? OK. We'll revisit that. He doesn't like it and since we live deep in the woods there wasn't much need for it. But, as a training tool, I see your point.

    Alright, I have a couple of things for you to work on. Lets start with building trust. Have the dog eat the dog food out of your hand, literally. Its a calm way that you establish your leadership and authority as well as a source of all things positive. It will be kind of annoying but getting them to eat out of your hand builds that trust and helps them to understand what state of mind you want them to be in when they take the food. Next, lets redirect some of that negative energy and burn off the dogs. Need to have daily walks, on a leash. Same thing as above, it shows them who is the boss, and what being the boss means. Being boss means youre the source of all things positive. From the dog's point of view, it takes a hell of a lot of stress off of them knowing that someone else very capable is in charge, and allows them an opportunity to relax and see that submitting is a good thing. It is a pain as having a dog is a full time job. To be balanced, they are like kids and need almost constant attention. I believe you arent a dog abuser, and even harsh corrections arent abuse. We both know what abuse truly is and what it truly is not. Not worried about that at all. But what youre saying that youre doing isnt working, and its just a matter of learning why things arent working that hold us back from moving forward. Easy thing to do is look at everything from the dogs point of view with limited understanding of language and as a "child". That is when most people find that inner leader, and its just a matter of presenting things to a dog in a context they can understand.

    I think Gunny is quite clear, as I am, that integrity keeps us from choosing the lesser of evils. I don't do that. Fuck that stupid ass shit about choosing the lesser of evils to bring about liberty. It just doesn't happen that way.

    Thanks for the referral. But they are on the other side of the state and not sure I want to sink $2k+ into the fixin'. Again thanks, and if we do not come to a resolve this might be an option. More than likely we will just find a new home for Lilly if it can't be resolved.

    Johnson/Weld will not get in the debates. I'll put a hunny on it. That ticket lost about half of the LP vote. Which wasn't much to start with. And, I'm sorry to speak truth, ain't gonna draw the never Trump/never Hillaty vote.

    I can't speak for Gunny but I would have loved for Grayson to run as Pres, as opposed to V.P. Even if Grayson had won the V.P. pick I might have considered voting on the ticket. Johnson/Weld? Fuck them. Seriously. There is NOTHING about that ticket I care for. NOTHING.

    This is something that needs work. The S.O. gets no respect ala Rodney Dangerfield. He honestly thinks his place in the pack is above her. She is going to have to work at being the alpha-she wolf. I'll speak with her about it tomorrow. As the alpha I suppose that my dictates would be adhered to but that is not what truly happens. The submissive will always strive to up itself in the pack. Even if it is just ignoring commands. I'm going to have to get my S.O. to start working with him and her this next week.

    This is quite possible with the addition of the rescue dog. I dunno. I've never really favored her. At the on set he loved her. I didn't have to play "tug-tug" everyday with him because she and him did it together. It was a match made in heaven. It still is when he is getting along. Even after the night of the two attacks after I denied him the pen and forced him to "show belly" he eventually clamed down and played nice with her. To the point of letting her take the lead of the ball and rope for a bit of time. Again. Strangeness and trying to figure it out.

    I've never forced or even asked to be shown the belly. My reaction was because he became too belligerent. I truthfully didn't like doing it, but it did serve it's pupose. At least as far as I can tell. He has been very good today. I did not do it in anger. I did have to use force. Once he was under me in a submisive position I spoke in calming tones. "Good boy", etc. Eventually he let out one huge "huuuumph" and relaxed. Then I let him up and he licked my face like Piity's do.

    Thanks Damian. Your advise is pretty much a thread killer. I hope you don't think that I'm a dog abuser or such. Honestly there is Trust and Respect between myself and Newman. Or has been. Honestly there has been a few "possessive" traits that I need to correct him on. The food bowl being on. For the next coupla days he will eat his food from the dog bowl while I hold it in my hands. On the other hand there are some things that should be his according to some things I have read. We have a huge dog bed that was passed down from a yuuge American Bulldog. I forced both to share it and Newman jut got to the point he abandoned it and went to the couch. So he put himself outside the family unit. Tonight I made the call that his bed is his bed and Lilly has her own. End of story. You sleep here and you sleep here. Together but seperate.

    You have that right. Coming on 3 yrs. An Adolescence in human terms. And I agree with your point. He is 80#, she is 32#, her whole head fits in his mouth. If he wanted to seriously injure or kill he could have. Before I made it to him to pull him away. She went submissive as she has always done. But, he just kept pushing. And didn't pull off on a command. And, yes, the bullying up to me is a SERIOUS issue. His new found aggression is something that I will not tolerate. We had the family reunion this week. There were my grand-nephews at 10 yrs. and 8 yrs. Newman did well with them. Perhaps all the family might have stressed him. I dunno. But, simply put, if he does not come to an accord soon then..... If I cannot trust him to conduct himself with another small dog then I cannot trust him to conduct himself with a small human. And as sad as it may seem it might have to end up as Ronin advised. But we are far from that. Today was a good day. I shut him out of his pen before we went to a friends dinner. Made him sit and lie before entry. When we came home let him out, let Lilly out of her in-house pen. Fed them close to each other. He had the temerity to growl at me when I pet him while he was eating. Took his bowl from him. Had him eat from the bowl that I held in my hands. I dunno, he's being strange. Adolescence, as you say, I think you are right.

    Nope. Principle before party. Even if it is a third party. The L.P. had an excellent chance to be relevant. TMOT would have been a better choice than Johnson/Weld. Even if Grayson would have been the V.P. pick I might have considered the L.P. As it stands, nope. Just nope.

    She's not defending principles. She's defending her position for supporting Trump. Trying to antagonize you because she also chose a non-principled candidate. Non-principled candidates abound in this election cycle.
