Last night our friends dropped off their Shiba Inu that we have agreed to watch while they vaca in another part of the country. We knew their girl got along with our boys through a few meet and sniff sessions we had arranged over the past few weeks prior but now that her owners are gone I'm starting to lose my mind. In the past 12 hours she's already managed to pee on all of the carpets, the kitchen floor twice and our bed... TWICE. It's not like the proper precautions weren't taken either - she's doing this all in front of either me or my boyfriend and within a half hour of going outside. ;;sigh;;
To make matters worse she's taken to bullying Murphy, (IE he's laying in his bed completely out of the way and she marches over and kicks him out, tosses the bed around for a minute and then goes away. Rinse. Wash. Repeat.) In addition to all of this lovely behavior, she can jump all of the gates we have and she doesn't listen to women so she's been ignoring any commands I've given her while listening astutely to my boyfriend. And while I thought the shiba was a relatively quiet breed, she's been barking pretty much non-stop. It's a total nightmare.
When she isn't peeing or being utterly defiant she's running around like a lunatic and stirring both Killian and Murphy into a frenzy - eventually the boys have a enough of it and lay down but she jumps them to start playing. Let me tell you how fun that was at 2AM.
Hopefully this behavior runs its course and things return to some normalcy soon. I'm tired and sick of grabbing new rolls of paper towels from the basement but I don't know what else to do!
