This morning I was sitting on the floor near the fireplace. Pearl was about a foot away from me, also sitting. I leaning over towards her and she bit me!!!! I mean she snarled and grabbed my lip as fast as lightning. The blood started to flow right away from my lip. I grabbed her by the scruff of the neck and layed her on her side in a submissive position. I was not rough or mean but believe me...I was mad as hell on the inside.
When Hubby had seen what happened, he again positioned her on her side. She did not resist. Within a few minutes, all was well again; for her. I was upset all day and still am! I started to rationalize all the things that I do for this dog and in return, she bites me. But I bring mysef back and realize that she is a DOG and has dog feelings, not human.
Some people would not stand for this behavior. Pearl would be at the pound or worse. But I love her and would never be mean or harm her.
So what do you all think? Is a dog "allowed" to have an aggression accident once and a while? If not, what can I do to prevent this from happening again?
