The Social Butterfly
Bill brought Mabel to my office yesterday. She made bulldog lovers out of everyone she met!
Mabel has never met a stranger. For a dog who didn't have the greatest life during her first 4 - 5 years, she certainly bears no ill will toward people. However, dogs are another issue. Our neighbor has two Yorkie puppies who are adorable--to us. Mabel is not amused. She lunged and snapped at one--so not cool.
Our vet was surprised that this dog, who had several litters, would snap at a puppy. I am not sure if she wanted to play and just doesn't know the proper etiquette, or if she is just a diva who doesn't want any other dogs around. Or maybe having so many litters has completely turned her off from being around puppies--you know, like "get those GD kids out of my face!!"
In my office, she explored every open room and sat and offered a paw to everyone she met. Thank goodness there were no other dogs, or she'd have blown her newly-gained reputation.
This little angel of a dog has continued to amaze us with her love and dedication to us. I will NEVER be without a bulldog!
