6 weeks ago my rescue terrier Bengie wouldn't let you touch her

she would hide under the bed and refuse to allow you to touch her.She was scared of her own shadow.She was horribly abused and was a tough nut to crack

NOW

She's laying on the couch with me waiting on the onion rings to come out of the oven so we can watch tv and munch some crispy onion rings.

She's my new baby.Junior and Katie are on the floor..Bengie is on the couch.There has been a seismic shift in dog pecking order in the house...Bengie is the new alpha..Katie is two...poor ole Junior brings up the rear if he even notices.he may be too busy eating to notice...and Charles just needs to stay out of the way for now.

LOVE having a social order of dogs again

1. Not to harsh your buzz.....

.... but I have read that onions are poisonous to dogs, I googled it:

2. My reaction as well.

In fact, there are many foods that are harmless to humans but are toxic to other animals.

3. Onions and garlic, raisins and grapes, among other things

That was my first thought too, though we should be here celebrating the socialization of a deserving dog.
