    You have some excellent advise above, plus her hormones are going crazy right now too because of the spaying. Do the things the others have told you and make her earn everything, and before you know it your sweet baby will be back.

    Hey guys! Thank you all so much for all of your helpful feedback. Sadie goes to get her stitches out tomorrow, so I am still going to ask her vet about this behavior. But after corresponding with you guys, I realized that I needed to be more dominant than her in order to show her that I am the boss not her. When I went home that afternoon, I began being more strict about her behavior ( I know I should have when it first started, but its soooo hard to look at those little puppy dog eyes and put her in her place. They just look so pitiful when they dont get what they want. ) and correcting her when she did wrong. I have even began making her sit before I let her back into the apartment after going out to potty. After this, she is beginning to do better with Sasha. She still starts to run at her sometimes, but usually when I say something she will turn around. I call this progress. Now, she is still demanding about other things, but all this will have to come with time. My main concern is the behavior towards the kitty cat. Now for the boyfriend, he still does not get it. But I have always been the one to do more of everything with Sadie. He is more of the bystander watching unless he is at home alone with her. When it is just him home with her though, this is when she tends to sleep. She always wakes up and wants to do everything when Mommy is home. I will have to work on him too, but as long as I can get her to listen to me better, hopefully it will be easier to get her to listen to him as well.

    Texas Carol, I hate to say it but I laughed a little when I read that yours would chest bump the cat off of the bed. I can just picture Sadie chest bumping Sasha.

    Thanks you guys, yall haven been a lot of help. You have also made me feel less bad about the behavior going on. It is good to know that I am not alone with these things.

    How is she doing now, with her stitches out? This may not apply to your situation, but my now-passed black lab Dixie had a similar attitude change for a few days after her first cancer surgery, it was the pain meds. She was on Tramadol for pain and it really made her wacko till we figured it out. Hope your baby is all better now!!

    GusBus, Sadie is doing better. Some progress has been made. She still runs at the kitty some, but not as much. So we are getting there. Now that she has her stitches out she seems to be more back to her old self, so hopefully with time and more effort on my part she will leave the cat alone.

    Thanks for all of your support guys, it has been a big help. Her vet said that maybe even getting the cat and bringing her into the room around Sadie may help to show Sadie that its okay.

    You have gotten great advice but the BF needs to be on board with this and make him understand its for her comfort and best interest a dog that is comfortable and knows their place in the pack is a comfortable bulldog.

    R.I.P. Duece Man 9-13-14 Gone but not forgotten, always in our hearts! Till we meet again over the Bridge, Mommy misses you.
