  • Happy #tongueouttuesday 🐕👅🐶 What I have learned today, is to never share “big news” in a story! 
I have had 100’s of messages asking me why Charlie is wearing a muzzle... so for those of you who missed my story, here it is! 😁
And for those of you who have reached out with your stories and support, it means the world to me. ❤️Thank you for being so awesome about such a hard subject for me! 🙏

As I have mentioned in previous posts, Charlie’s behavior has changed since I got Bodhi. It has been so hard getting her to love and accept him, (as I mentioned about 6 posts ago) but we are definitely seeing improvements and glimpses of happiness when they play outside, and even on the odd occasion inside!
Charlie is not wearing a muzzle because she is too rough with Bodhi. She is wearing a muzzle because her behavior has also changed around one dog in particular, our best friend Whiskey. 😔
Charlie and Whiskey were best friends for years. We would hike mountains together and they would play together and we all thought it would continue when we brought a puppy into the mix. Boy was I ever wrong. 
When Bodhi was 5 months, Charlie and Whiskey started to have problems. I don’t know if Charlie is jealous of their relationship, or is trying to claim Bodhi as her own, or she is trying to establish pack leadership over Whiskey, but she seems very aggressive towards Whiskey whenever Bodhi is around. 
I have learned that female RR’s need to be the alpha. So I guess when it was just the 2 of them it was ok, but now that Bodhi is around, Charlie needs to establish that she is in charge of the pack. 🤷‍♀️👑🙄 This absolutely breaks my heart to see. We have tried training, and a few different suggestions, but it looks like the safest thing for all of us, is to muzzle train Charlie. 😭
It has been so hard for me to leave my girl at home on all of our fun, long weekend adventures. But, it has been way too stressful to bring her. Seeing her sad face as I leave her at home, breaks my heart. I am hoping she learns to accept the muzzle and eventually when we all get over this scary dog look, we can relax and have enjoyable hikes again with the entire family. 😊🐕🐶🐕🤞#muzzletraining Happy #tongueouttuesday 🐕👅🐶 What I have learned today, is to never share “big news” in a story!
