Whoever wrote this quote apparently knew Lulu – “Dogs kind of default to making friends unless provoked. Cats seem to default to making enemies unless convinced otherwise”. Lulu hasn’t been convinced.
If you recall, Alex said I should be more like her if I wanted to deal with the brat.
He took Lola to play with Bailey, a tiny dog who belongs to Sharon’s granddaughter. They all watched in horror as Lola ran into the house and pounced on Lulu. Oh, I wish I had been there. It was chaos. Lola yelping, Bailey barking, Alex and Riley rescuing the dogs and comforting them. And Lulu? Sitting on the counter, licking her paws as if nothing had happened.
I overheard Lola telling the old dogs about the ordeal. She is prone to exaggeration, so I don’t know if it is true that Lulu eats children. However, witches had black cats and perhaps she is a descendant or a re-incarnation of one of the meaner ones. Whatever the case, I have decided not to meet her.
Of course, I am now back to square one. There is an out-of-control puppy in my space and no immediate solution. Sharon told me to go to the vegetable garden as the dogs are not allowed there; Alex said I should sit on the side-board, out of reach; Happy said I should go to his house; the old dogs suggested ignoring her (as if that’s worked for them) and Riley tells me to be friends and love her. These ideas all smack of giving in, letting her have the run of the house and being even more in control. Would you let a child behave like that? For the sake of all of us she must be stopped.
Lola will be trained. I don’t know how, but it will happen.
