    Oh the little monkey, so,sorry he's giving you such a hard time, but like everyone has said, he will settle in and will get used to his new home, soon.
    LEARN A LESSON FROM YOUR DOG, NO MATTER WHAT LIFE BRINGS YOU, KICK SOME GRASS OVER THAT AND MOVE ON.

    Well everyone it looks like we will only be a temporary foster for Frankie. Brutus is totally traumatized. He is not eating and he is vomiting tonight. I am sad that Frankie will not be a permanent part of our family but my first and foremost responsibilty is Brutus.

    Perhaps Brutus would accept a female better.

    “It came to me that every time I lose a dog they take a piece of my heart with them. And every new dog who comes into my life gifts me with a piece of their heart. If I live long enough,all the components of my heart will be dog,and I will become as generous and loving as they are"

    Maybe. I'm afraid to try. Brutus really loves other dogs. I guess just not in his house. Frankie is a great dog with wonderful manners and will make a family very happy. I guess we were only meant to be a brief stop on his way to his permanent home. The family he was with had to have him out of the house by today so at least he got to come here and play with us instead of having to go to the rescue. And hopefully he can go right into his new home.

    Rosalie...and now you know, your Brutus needs to be an only dog.
    It's GOOD to know things

    No judgement...you tried! Frankie will find his home and you helped out.

    It's all good Hun...Cami & I send love to poor BruBru & Y'all.

    Over the loudspeaker... "Piss cleanup on Rosalie's aisle!"


    My 1st bully, Brutus
    RIP beloved boy.

I am also doing the smell thing with taking turns with each dog in a covered crate for a bit and letting the other get used to the dogs smell in the house. Frankie obviously gets less freedom than brutus at this point but it is helping Settle anyway being in his crate. Guess whos staying home from work tomorrow.
    Good plan!

    You get an 'A' for effort. You are doing everything you can do. I know this has to be hard for you.

    Yes I'm just afraid he will continue to make brutus so upset. Do you think he will settle down? He was not eating and vomiting last night

    You also need to settle in for Brutus to be accepting -- he senses you are on edge and he will be impacted by it. I know the rain is messy, but if you can get them out for walks together.... you with Bru and someone else with Frankie (dogs are on outter sde of each human... humans between the dogs)... 10 mins... down the block and back a couple times a day, it is a great way for them to pack up. Also, when entering the home, make sure humans first, whomever you deem alpha ... then Brutus, then human and then Frankie - it is awkward but means a lot
