I feel bad leaving him home, but it really isn't fun for him. Maybe the prozac would help with this
    If you try it, let me know. I still can't decide what to do..

    So good news, the vet just emailed Brutus' blood work. Everything was within normal range for organ function. We are going to treat his ear infection and keep track of his behavior and hope it stops when his ears feel better. If not, I will consider the next step of medication.

    When we were having that problem with one of our bullmastiffs, our trainer/handler told us that she was no longer to be allowed up on the furniture with us. She said that when we did that, we sent her the message that she was the same level as us in the household. Keeping her on the floor when we were sitting on the sofa was hard (though we were happy to have the extra room ) but it worked very well. It helped establish us in her mind as "top dog."




    "Dogs have a way of finding the people who need them and
    filling an emptiness we didn't even know we had."

    @ChrisRN I have not been letting him sit on my lap and it is helping alot. He is also feeling some relief from the antibiotic and drops for his ears. When he tries to cuddle I get up and sit some where else. He is getting the hint and his behavior has been better. Hopefully the better he feels, the better he will act.
