The vet said she'd adjust, but it's her personality which seems most altered. She's much more insecure than she was, and fearful of the other dogs. I know there's all that revolting "thinning out the pack" pyschology, but so help me, if anyone tries anything ugly, they're going to get it (which from me means a hell of a scolding, a time out, and NO PETTING or sleeping in bed, for days!).
I want to pamper her while she heals, but I want her to buck up, too. At the moment, I'm not even sure she'd try to steal butter off the counter, one of her all time favorite acts of mischief and gluttony.
