Hello all. We have a now 5 month old black Lab that has been great except for her being a croco-pup, pretty on par with what many of you are, or have gone through with your pups. (Nothing like our first Lab, though, I feel I need to make clear. She was mouthy but nothing like Maeve!). Anyway, I thought we were over the hump. She is better, for the most part but now instead guards stuff she finds outside. She won’t let us take it out of her mouth. It’s been manageable up until this morning, when she found a newly dead squirrel. What a prize! She ran around the yard a couple of times and even after tempting her with some yummy meat she would not give up that squirrel! I was terrified it had been poisoned and that she was going to eat it and die herself. Finally my poor husband grabbed her from behind. Maeve, startled, bit him twice on the hand-very hard. It was awful and I still haven’t gotten over it. We have been been good parents to her. Why would she attack? This can’t be normal, can it? Any words of comfort would be great.
