Um, Barb, this is because Missy IS a midget compared to Mel. Has Mel stood up on his hind legs yet? I remember a picture Joe put up with Mel next to a door, not specifically to show how big he was but my thought was "How many dogs stand shoulder height to door knobs?" :th
If and when Mel stands on his hind legs i will try to get a picture...but he sure does make Missy look like a wee little thing Bruce !

Good morning, we are going to leons dr in Gainsville this morning.....i am going to leave Mel in the house, i think reality has set in and he goes to the outside gates this morning and won't come when called.....last night he did not eat again, but when i had a english muffin, he was in my face waiting for his half.....
MELS real adjustment period has started, and i feel sad for him......but we will work through this together.....if anyone has any ideas on how to help him, please feel free to share them.
Until i know he fully understands this is his home he will not be outside without supervision.......looks like we have alot of outside time ahead of us , lol

Awww.....they are trying to comfort him. Give Mel a hug from his aunt Baymule. He is going to need a lot of attention and I know he is in a good place to get that. He can walk over the fence, you may have to run a hot wire. Joe used to leave him outside with plenty of food and water and be gone for a couple of days. Mel didn't know that he could go over the fence. But when he got goats and decided to keep Mel with them, Mel showed that he had other ideas. He KNOWS that he can go over the fence.

Just got off the phone with SBC.....we talked about his diet and the depression.....yes i have to have a talk with him for sure and comfort him. We also talked about all the intact dogs in our area and Mel will be getting nutered shortly for his safety, i sure wish people would take better care of their animals. That dang dog that i pepper sprayed came back again.....if she is in the yard when i get home, well you know how that will end up....hate doing it but........thanks Bay, will give our boy a big one for you...hugs barb

MEL, Miissy and Sophie were in the house alone for 9 hours, we didn't expect the procedure at the dr.to be that long...anyhow the three of them were perfect...the house was intact and no mess...:celebrate
Mel hadn't been eating much so I cooked the three of them dinner...Mel ate everything and licked the bowl clean, lol
The above picture is Mel and Missy chasing off the pit dog that keeps asking for a deep hole...i will have to take care of that tommrow as Mel was quite pissed and was about to go over the gate after it, thankfully he listened when i said NO MEL....such a good boy:yesss:
We also had a talk with him and explained that this is his home and where he now belongs, he sighed as i hugged him then licked my face :hit
About a half hour later i looked out the window and leon was talking to Mel, as i watched Mel looked up at him, wagged his tail and they hugged. ....Mel now knows this is his new home...:love
