I took Cassie to the vet today for her rabies shot. First thing she does is growl at a woman who had kneeled down to pet her.
Once I brought her in, the vet told me her records indicated that she had to be muzzled. So I struggled with her to put the muzzle on. Then, while the vet is examining her, she is crying, her tail is stiff, and suddenly she PEES, a Lot. Right on the table. While he went to get some more towels she tries to bolt forward, all 60 lbs of her, and her claws cling onto the mat underneath her. She was like a giant cat.
He told me that it looks as if she has fear aggression, after I explained her history. Didn't surprise me. And it's a hard issue to deal with, semi costly, but that's another story.
Before we left, she growled at some of the people and other dogs. She calmed down significantly in the car, and curled up and licked my hand for a second. We were both exhausted when we got home..
