With the in-laws here, Muttolah gave me a look of total anxiety and sadness this morning. She's been a bit on the 'loose' side digestively speaking and I doubt Dad K is very patient with her when he walks her. In fact, I'll be shocked if we get through this visit without her biting him. He likes to play with her, but he goes too far. He grabs her head and shakes it. He pinches her ear. He shoves a toy into her face and insists she play. This morning he patted her head as he walked by and she snapped the air after he passed.
Most days she sleeps under our bed. Yesterday they shut the bedroom door. A whole day trapped in accessible areas of the apartment! This dog was a 'rescue' from the Baltimore SPCA. She started out very timid with a ton of separation anxiety. She's calmed down ALOT and I'm going to be furious if she ends up reverting because Dad K is too rough.
Only two more days...
(In fairness though, for all of us adults the visit is going very well.)
