@2BullyMama- That is easier said than done. Any suggestions? For example, Spike just came in the house and Arnold, now with about 15 sutures in his back, started after the Westie. The vet offered sedatives but I declined this offer. This has been an ongoing dilemma since Arnold joined our family but I did not realize that Spike had actually punctured his skin or caused bruising. They play wonderfully outside or on the terms of Spike but Arnold just doesn't understand the cues from Spike that he is done playing. I move Spike up but then Spike moves back around Arnold. Sometimes we move Spike to our daughters room but it seems unfair since he wants to be around the family as well. Any suggestions would be appreciated!!
