    Default The life of the party

    We were invited to my cousin's Christmas party yesterday afternoon and were told to bring Mabel. Everyone loved her. For the first time ever she didn't get over excited with the number of people there and was quite the hit. As we were leaving one of the guests let Mabel into the room where my cousin's two dogs were hanging--a pittie mix and a lab mix. Big mistake. I walked into the room just in time to see my usually sweet little girl go after the very gentle and much larger pittie. I heard a bark from the pit as she tried to get away from Mabel. I grabbed her harness and pulled her out of the room and closed the door. She was glued to the door and ready to finish what she started. This guest had been told (as all of them had) that Mabel does not like other dogs. He thought I was kidding. He said, as he opened the door, "Oh, it will be OK." I couldn't get there fast enough to stop him. What an idiot. My cousin and his wife LOVE Mabel and kept apologizing. Miss Mabes sure knows how to liven things up and make a memorable exit.

    filling an emptiness we didn't even know we had."

    That's so nice that your cousin invited Mabel to the party! Sounds like she had a great time and of course, got lots of attention

    The incident with the other dogs...entirely the fault of the person who allowed her in the room where the dogs were. Why would he think you were "kidding" about such a thing?! must not have experience/knowledge about dogs, i'm guessing(?) In any case, sounded like a fun time with a little excitement thrown in there too!

    Why are some people such IDIOTS???!!!! The party could have had a VERY sad ending. It was pure luck that you were nearby. I couldn't have held my tongue with that fool! Someone should have bitten him!!!! (but he would be the type to sue......)

    Glad Mabel had a good time and didn't get overly excited. That's a big step. Too bad the cousin didn't believe you. That's a bad situation enough just to bring an unknown dog into a closed room where the other two were. Glad everyone was ok and I hope cousin learned a lesson that not all dogs like others. I would have felt pretty bad too had it been me that made a bonehead decision. Oops.
