My master complains about my paws and its claws. She thinks I am too lazy to lift my legs, which is true. I do as little work as possible. But being lazy is not a good thing. So we had my nails clipped. I felt abondened and hurt since I don’t like these places where they groom and make dogs pretty. I am not a pretty dog, I like my old smelly dog smell and it is a comfort in that. I don’t want to change but it got done and my master felt proud of herself (I gave it to her). I have to admit I do have an ego, its always been there since I was born. I am a bully (but not a dog who hurts other dogs, only takes pride in knowing what I like). I am kindhearted, a little stubborn and likes to get my butt scratch. Is that too much to ask for! I know my master wishes that I was a little bit different at times and not so single minded on things that doesn’t really matter. But this is how I was born, English bulldogs are stubborn, so why should I change that. That requires a lot of time and energy.
When I am going out for a walk to do my thing, I meet up with a lot of people. Some of them loves me and have a chat, others are busy keeping their own dog’s on a distance so they don’t bark at me. Why are all these dogs always barking at me? I am starting to doubt myself: maybe I should take a deeper look at my life and the way I think and act. If I change a few things in the way I view myself I might get along with more dogs which will make me happier at the end. So I started to take inventory on my thoughts and the imprints I got from my doggy parents. I had to spend some time to research my way of thinking and how that relates to getting along with other dogs. I will get back to that later. It really helped.
