    Default Could she be sad?

    Hello, I'm brand new here, this is my first post after my "Newbie" post. So my darling girl Joey is 5 months old. This morning she got what was really her first scolding. I don't yell, of course have NEVER hit, and really she has done nothing until this morning that would warrant yelling. I had to shoo her out of a bedroom closet (chewing on shoe lace), as I was scooting her down the hallway she started to go after my feet, something she has not done since she was 3 months old. I told her OFF and walked away, well she then lunged at my calf, did not bite or anything, but tripped me and I yelled, picked her up and said NO. Well, after that, for the next 45 minutes, she sat right by my desk in home office while I worked, every time that I looked at her the ears went back, eyes got wide, and this look I've NEVER seen before came on her face, like she was trying desperately to tell me something. I kept telling her it was OK, but she went fast asleep, slept thru lunch time. I woke her up to eat and go out. She came in and played just a bit and now is fast asleep again. I think that I hurt her feelings???? Possible??? This sweet little girl is my first EB.....Any thoughts? Thank you so much!

    OH she is SO cute! Mine is also very sensitive. He gets mad at me, holds a grudge…he even peed on my bed because I went away on a business trip.
    Try not to feel too guilty, Mama's guilt is the WORST! She'll be okay. Her feelings probably did get hurt, extra playful and doesn't know boundaries yet…give her some extra treats tonight and a little extra affection, she'll forget all about it (in a few days lol) stubborn little suckers.
    She probably got extra sleepy because she's just a playful little puppy…I'm sure she knows you're a good Mama!!
    Welcome to EBN. Can't wait to see pics! She really is so SWEETfaced

    her feelings got hurt. Often you have to put them in their place. It is all good. After all, dog's memory is only good for few minutes. So everything's forgotten and forgiven.

    I don't care what non-dog/pet people say about them not having feelings...these stinkers sure do. If they do something wrong they easily show it. They are just four legged, wrinkly people. Sometimes when Raven is begging for food and I tell her no she will grumble. I continue to converse with her and she will grumble along . Believe me they know and they sure know how to turn on the guilt. It will be fine. She is just going to let you stew a bit.
    Always in my heart and never far from my thoughts. See you at the rainbow bridge my sweet little Monkey. R.I.P. Raven.

    That'll work! She'll forgive you, lol. Shopping at the pet store is an instant cure! Don't be afraid to put your foot down though when she does get out of line…you want a well behaved adult bully and the training starts very early. The more she is allowed to get away with the harder it will be to correct it later on…(although I think I would also have a very difficult time correcting…just LOOK at that FACE)...take yourself shopping too, you deserve it

    Welcome to EBN and don't be stingy with pics

    Yes, she might be a bit upset with you but will forget soon enough
    and definitely forgive, hey...you're Mom and she looooooves you!

    It's okay to scold them, they're like toddlers, they like their own way
    and don't want to listen or mind. You didn't do anything wrong and
    she's fine! At 5 months old, Joey is still very much a baby. And yes,
    bullies ARE more sensitive than other breeds.

    There's a wealth of information, knowledge & experience here, it'll
    help a lot so you will feel more confident dealing with her and worry
    much less.

    Joey is beautiful, those are big feet to grow into, Wow!


    My 1st bully, Brutus
    RIP beloved boy.
