    Honestly, at 12 weeks, he's JUST learning that biting is painful and not to behave that way. He's just a baby, he can't control his emotions very well. It's just like a cranky toddler. As he gets older, he will mellow out. Matilda was the same way - she was ruthless and didn't understand that teething on PEOPLE is painful and not okay. They grow out of it. Just keep doing what you're doing. In the meantime, keep your kids from waking him up. And try to wake him up with sounds - calling his name, making noise, etc, instead of touching him.

    A quick update on this...

    i have doubled the locks on my house. If he ever goes missing i know where to look! ( @2BullyMama @Texas Carol @brutus77 )
    I also had a *DOH* moment... We had been babysitting one of Kevin's sisters for a few days and i don't think he's been getting all of his naps in ( ). Once his sister went home and he was back onto his normal schedule he hasn't been 'as grumpy' waking up at night. He still growls & mumbles but he hasn't gone all kujo on anybody since.

    I'll keep working on making waking up a fun thing (aka.. 'ive got cheese curds!!') and keep the 6 foot pole handy just in case.

    That makes sense. When we first got our rescue Frankie, we noticed that Brutus was really out of sorts and I realized that they were playing all the time and Brutus wasn't getting his nap time which you have found out = beast dog!! For a couple of days we just put Brutus in his crate for a nap and he has since gotten used to it and is back to being a perfect angel....

    @TheLost, @brutus77 @2BullyMama...I knew there had to be a good reason,
    adorable Kevin was a lil grumpy. And, I'd not really fight with my girls, we'd
    figure out a way to share him

    Seriously...I'd put him in print advertising & TV...the movies...he's got 'the look'.
    Earning his own money might brighten his mood, Dad, and sure help on buying
    cheese curls!

    Be sure and give Kevin big smoochies from me & Cami, we are smitten, big time!


    My 1st bully, Brutus
    RIP beloved boy.

    You know in a litter of pups, they are always climbing on and biting on each other. The stronger ones-being "on top". Maybe they bugged her when she was trying to sleep, ,they bite each other, climb on each other-one wants to play, the other one wants to sleep- and she just got protective of herself, when trying to sleep. Not knowing the pups-or the situation-it's just a guess. But-some people wake up cranky,too. Some are light sleepers, some heavy sleepers...

    Ahh gotcha..I always wondered if she was ok during that stage cos she is def a vier for position, little bite inhibition w ppl especially when excited, seems high strung around appliances, resource guarder (w the other dogs) etc....just wondered if maybe she wasn't treated well...or maybe she just has a lil byatchy personality lol

    We'll.. we've gone through that before.. Molly's stardom went to her head..
    http://www.englishbulldognews.com/fo...the-big-screen!!

    She started hanging out with a bad crowd (poodles, chihuahuas, cats... etc). Then she got addicted to the hard stuff (cheese in a can).. We ended up spending $$$ on rehab.. luckily for us there is a famous rehab center close by..
    http://www.eonline.com/news/292041/f...ore-demi-moore

    She's fine now... but we still find her handing out 'head shots' and offering to sign autographs in the front yard every now and then.

    I really don't want to put Kevin through that...
