A Meat Head Update :(

Since I share many things with you all about my furry family members, I don't want to hide this from you all, especially if someone asks how Meat Head is doing.  The incident happened yesterday, and I pretty much just copied and pasted my Facebook status:

 

It pains me to share this, but Meat Head will have to be rehomed in a home where he is the only dog. :'( His jealousy has taken a bad turn, and dad says he will not have it. For the second time, while I was trying to pet Brutus, Meat Head got too rough. He grabbed my shirt sleeve trying to pull me down and wouldn't let go. I couldn't get free, so I yelled for help. My parents and neighbor across the road came over. Meat Head let go when he heard dad. However, the worst pain is my heart. I don't understand why he is acting more and more this way, especially since I love on him all the time. I feel like I've lost two dogs in less than six months. Other than the jealous issue or whatever happened, he really is a good, sweet boy. If anyone is looking for a dog, please contact me. However, he has to be the ONLY dog. Also, please do not leave any mean or smart remarks. I'm hurting enough as it is because I Love him. Depending on who you are, your mean words will be deleted and you will be blocked and reported. I love animals so much, and this is hard for me to share. I just want him to have the right home where the focus is on only him.

 

Obviously the block and report comment is FB directed.  If you have a Facebook, you know why I would add something like that.  Anyway, I am not happy, even though it is for the best.  He tore my shirt sleeve, claw marks/welts are on my back and shoulder, and this morning my bruise is worse than it was last night.  I don't care about all of that.  My heart is what hurts the most.  :'(

 

I'm very attached to Meat Head, and he's more my dog than anyone's.  This jealous type of behavior has been progressing no matter what we do.  The past few times times dad has mowed the dog lot with the push mower, Meat Head has been jumping up and whatnot to grab his shirt.  We can't pet just Brutus because Meat Head will butt him or the person out of the way.  As a result, he needs to be in a home where he is the only dog so he can have all of the attention.

 

My parents and aunt are going to see if any coworkers may be interested in him, and, of course, they will be informed about what happened.  I volunteer at the humane society (no kill) later today, and I will talk to them as well.  I know this has to be done, but I cannot stop crying.  Every time I look outside and see him, the tears start again.  My parents and others said it's not my fault, but I can't help but feel like I've let Jewel down.  Mom said she wouldn't want to see me marked up and whatnot like that, but now I've lost two dogs and Brutus will be alone for a while again.  Dad said we'll get another dog, but Meat Head is not the right fit for the family.

 

Please hope, pray, whatever you believe in that Meat Head will find the absolute perfect home where he is the only dog and loved as much as I love him.  

Re: A Meat Head Update :(

I'm so sorry. Your pictures show a dog who knows he was loved, and who knows he brought you happiness. Sometimes that is enough.

Re: A Meat Head Update :(

That is so sad Kimmi  my heart and thoughts are with you but at least you know that Meathead and Jewel are together now and both crossed your path and had a wonderful life.

Re: A Meat Head Update :(

Thank you all so much for you kind words and pictures.  I've read the Rainbow Bridge poem, but I never checked to see if there were illustrations.  Sharing all of this with you has helped me more than you all know.  Things feel different without Meat Head, and I can tell Brutus knows something happened.  However, I believe he is slowly healing, too, because he really likes to go on the leash for walks.  Usually, he likes to be in the dog lot (it's big with plenty of room to run and play) and have us come to him.  He still likes that, but now he wants on the leash more.  Of course, he still uses me as his chair lol.

Awww Kimmi HUGS & KISSES!!! <3 

I'm so sorry you had to go through this. Loosing a fur baby is always tough, loosing 2 in such a short time must be so difficult to go through. 

Re: A Meat Head Update :(

Kimmi - I am so sorry to hear of your loss.  I have never had a pet of my own, but have seen many friends and loved ones loose their pets over the years and I understand that they become a big part of your family and  the love you share with them runs very deeply.

 

I know it will take time but I know in time you will heal and only look back fondly at your time with Meat Head.  It is clear by your posts and pictures that he was well loved and loved you back just the same.

 

Sending lots of love and hugs <3

Re: A Meat Head Update :(

Thanks, fran11 and dannyc.  I already look back on the good times he and I had, especially when I look at pictures.  Brutus is beginning to perk up, too.  I believe Brutus knows that Meat Head and Jewel are watching over him.
