Dad was supposed to tell her that we had a new pup and couldn't bring Blackie over, but 'forgot to', she didn't know and normally it would be okay except new pup. It wasn't her fault, it was definitely his. Three days has NOT been enough time for him to settle down, he still jumps at things like opening a cabinet.
Dad's been trying to interact, but pup is very fearful of well, anything but me, and even growling at him. In spite of his insistance the best way to handle this is smacking, he's been working on his approach being mostly with cheese cubes and bits of chicken, so I'm pretty happy with that so far. I don't want the pup to bond TOO much to just me, since I worry a lot about causing seperation anxiety.
Edit: time to make a general thread.
