He needed his vaccines anyway.. Now I feel guilty as crap.. I'm heading to LA for ten days.. Just think.. He could've been suffering for nothing.. If he still has a fit while I'm sewing, he's going to get drop kicked... big time

    Good for you!! So glad to hear you took him to the vet, I too had immediately suspected an ear problem. Bear in mind though that it could take a while for it to clear up ... so don't be in a rush to practice drop kicking
    May your stitches always be straight, your seams always lie flat, and your grain never be biased against you.

    Socrates has had multiple ear infections throughout his seven years.. He has allergies, and asthma.. Now that I think of it.. He's a pain in the behind.. but a really good guy.. and I love him to pieces.. I got to talk to him while I'm away, and he is in the best of hands.. My mom is cuddling him.. He might get drop kicked when I get back if he continues fighting my sewing..
    As for Cesar Milan..I disagree 100% with his methods..

    Me too.....our Malamute/Staffy Luca sits beside the Dyson everytime it's out. He pushes against me as soon as I turn it on....have to vacuum the dog before the floors get done.

    If he still reacts when his ears get cleared up you might try one of those new vest like things that make dogs feel secured when they are scared. They use it when dogs don't like loud noises like thunder or household noises. Haven't tried it but have heard good things about it. Wish it had been invented years ago. Our baby loved to be vacuumed but tore the screed door off if she was outside when it thundered.

    Thunder shirts!! I have read about them and have a friend who is a trainer , who swears by them for some dogs. Nothing works for every body...

    We have the Thunder shirt. I bought it when it first came out, as my guy is a chicken, and afraid of thunder.. and terryfied about being left alone (spoiled).. It didn't work.. He shakes like a leaf.. I do okay with knocking him out with Benadryl.. I'm not concerned about him fighting the vacuum, as I use a canister that doesn't have brushes.. I also can send him out of the room.. He listens.. but creeps back in with a sad look on him face.. He behaves after..
