oh, that's how. she had my son's entire pinkie in her vile mouth!
that. looks. HORRIBLE. we are disinfecting it often since this little female puppy is clearly rabid
ok i am shutting up about this subject before i get really worked up. here are some folks who do NOT bite judah:
i hang out with her every monday to provide respite care for the dukes. i often take her to the grocery store since monday is grocery day, but it's not a super-fun time because she either gets bored or points to everything on the shelves and says "dat mah fav-rit." its great practice for when my kids inevitably want me to buy everything there. so this time i had a strategy to make it fun for both of us. we got the big racecar cart and she sat in the bin. we went to the magazine aisle first and got about 5 of her favorites (brides, country living, motorcycles [dat mah fav-rit], etc) and then she camped out in the front while i piled groceries in the seat section where the little kids would sit.
the craziest thing was that i was kind of afraid that someone would mistake her for a misbehaving adult and get us in trouble before i could explain. so i'm over by the deli shopping for hummus (yummus!) and this worker comes running up behind us saying, "excuse me ma'am!" i was like, oh great, here we go. then she says, "do you think she would like a chicken tender?" i almost DIED.
chicken fingers are one of elena's great loves in life so the fact that we didn't get in trouble AND she chased us down to give us what she couldn't possibly have known was elena's favorite food was AH-MAZING. she also told us we could go to the bakery and get her a cookie! by the time we rolled into frozen foods elena had kicked back in the cart with her feet propped up and out of the front and her jacket behind her head, reading magazines and enjoying her cookie. that is some serious VIP grocery store treatment. we had also discussed the merits of various wedding gowns, racing motorcycles and living room decor themes. it was AWESOME!
judah's aunt elena is so good with him and has certainly never bitten him. ahem, just so we're clear.
that brings me to our next friend who doesn't bite. if anyone could be expected to maybe lash out against judah with a little dental force, it's our cat, danger. judah is obsessed with him (he couldn't care less about scout, the other cat who jesse and i can't stand and who actually bit elena once). meals come to a stop when danger-pants saunters by (hence the foodface above). danger is quite feisty with me and jesse but he is ridiculously gentle with judah despite the whisker-tugging, flank-slamming, ear-ripping treatment that judah gives him. plus the occasional jugular/abdominal pin-down:
