    If you're looking for a friend for Wally I'd strongly recommend a Pug, Joey and our Pug are super good friends Love Frenchies also<3 Wally hopefully just needs some management, he's at the age where he'd try the boundaries. Has he acted normal lately or is he lashing out still?

Marcus won't be living w/us forever, in fact we are hoping that they will move to an apartment soon. Of course he will still be at our house a lot w/their work/school schedules. My first responsibility is of course the kids…

    We had planned not to neuter, and mostly because of my past history w/bulldogs and surgeries. I don't think it's crazy or irresponsible at ALL, as long as you are a responsible pet owner (which I KNOW that you are) there is no reason to neuter just because our country thinks it's best. Many threads on here have discussed neutering, and I have read each one w/interest. I won't make this decision lightly… it's something we will discuss at length. I honestly don't think that the neutering will change his behavior, I think that training is what is going to change him. Leah said that mental training is more exhausting then physical… so we are working w/him daily. I feel bad because w/all the madness going on here I sort of let that slip… Ugh!!!

    I really appreciate your input on this, and I completely agree w/you!!! Do you feel that Ruckus changed when Regina joined the family?!! We are thinking of getting a female puppy… maybe a Frenchie.
    Ruckus was having a blast the first day he met Regina. She was (and remains) super feisty so she loved him from the start also. Once Ruckus realized that she was a permanent fixture in our home, he did get a tad jealous for a few days. Regina always wanted to be on your lap and cuddle and she was just adorable so people wanted to come over and see her and love on her. The one time Ruckus snarled at Regina over a toy I let him know that was unacceptable. I supervised their play a lot the first week and made sure everyone was using manners. I made it a point to take Ruckus in a long solo walk at night and give him lots of pets, especially when I was giving Regina attention. I even starting giving Ruckus 3 meals a day again so he could eat with Regina. Ruckus never showed any jealousy past the first few days and now they're inseparable. They can share treats from the same plate and never squabble.

    The one change I did see was that Ruckus started to be a little more protective of Regina and me. If a dog snarled at Regina on the street you'd better believe Ruckus would give them the stink eye and a low growl. He never instigated though. He's better now that she's older, but I think he sees her as his puppy. He still gets along great with other dogs.

    He goes thru a couple of days like normal, and then BAM… lashes out. No rhyme or reason to it… we've been on him since Friday so this weekend he's been an angel

    any success with the DAP?

    I've had the spray for a while but only used it a handful of times BECAUSE the first night we tried it, he peed all over his bed. he hasn't had an accident inside in I don't know how long. I couldn't help but think it was related to the DAP spray.

    I did however use it for our family christmas card photo shoot. It's a big day for frank where he gets a lot of attention and has to wear a sweater and a santa hat lol. obviously a day full of 'stress' for him. I sprayed his xmas sweater with the DAP about 30 minutes before he put it on and he was noticeably calmer.

    He even went shopping in the warehouse at my work with me and was pleasant and calm.

    so... jury is still out on if I like the DAP or think it works.

    I got the collar, but we are waiting till after the holiday weekend to use it. I want to make sure I'm around him 24/7 to see if it actually works for him… I will let you know!!!
