Abuse - no other name for it

I am so upset right now, I could just cry, cry, cry.

When I cam home from work today, my next door neighbor was out front with Oscar (her daughter’s dachshund). As soon as Oscar saw me, his ears picked up and he started to run toward me. We have this ritual – he runs over, I open the kitchen door – he sits nicely in front of the cabinet where I keep his treats – I give him a treat – he takes it nicely – I open kitchen door – he runs back home.

So, we do our thing and then my neighbor called me over to see her new kitchen. While I was looking around, Oscar was sitting at my feet on the livingroom carpet. He sometimes does submissive urination when I’m around him. According to a googled website, “Submissive wetting or urination is a normal way for dogs and puppies to demonstrate submissive behavior. Even a dog that is otherwise housetrained may leave dribbles and puddles of urine at your feet and on the floor when greeting you.”

Well, sure enough Oscar rolled over for me to scratch his belly and then rolled back over and urinated a little bit on the carpet. I noticed it, but I kept my mouth shut. Suddenly, my neighbor noticed it and started screaming at Oscar. She then kicked him in the side. I couldn’t even speak – I was so upset. I quickly bent down and pet him and told her that it was my fault. She said, he only does this with a few people, and you’re one of them!

I was so upset that she had kicked him that I left right away. I just feel so sad – especially since I spent Sunday afternoon at the SPCA looking at the dogs.
