Something's been up with our dog for quite a while now. She's much less tolerant of the children. She growls at you if you even change the position of your leg on the couch next to her. She's even nipped at Jaina twice when she was startled.
I know that dogs can change personality when they get sick or old. I convinced Brian to take Alli to the vet. I was suspecting a back issue like a hairline fracture or something. Nope. The vet said that Alli, at age 9, wasn't even considered "old" yet for her breed and that she was the picture of perfect health. But, if the bad behavior continued, we could put her on prozac. Yeah, right!
