Do you ever just look at your dog and think...dang, she’s really mine...i do this so much lol. it’s been over two and a half years of having charm in my life and it still feels just as crazy. this perfect dog...she’s mine?! it still feels like a dream. some things just happen so quickly, so perfectly, that it seems too good to be true. but it’s very true. i’m not sure if i ever publicly shared my story of getting charm so...here it goes. -
i spent years, and i mean years searching for my next dog. i had my heart set on getting an alaskan malamute. i loved them, mostly because i love wolves and wanted to have something so primitive and close to a wolf. so i spent years searching for the perfect one. then, in 2015, i found one. she was a beautiful little young bitch. she was the last of her breeder’s lines. however, her breeder matched me with her and said i could take her on a co ownership deal. she let me take her home for a weekend to see if it would work. and it failed. let’s just say, her and wrangler did not get along. this was when i realized i had ignored the fact that malamutes are genetically predisposed to serious dog aggression. having one with wrangler, who is reactive himself, would likely never work. giving that malamute back, although i only had her for a day, was one of the hardest things i’ve ever had to do. -
i realized i needed to find a new breed. i needed something that would fit my actual needs. and something that could get along with wrangler. i had previously tried to deny facts when getting a malamute. i couldn’t make that same mistake. i started researching sighthounds and got very interested in whippets and borzoi. i had glanced over ibizans, but didn’t think much of them. however, one night quickly changed that. i was scrolling through facebook when i saw her. she was perfect. she was looking to be regimes. this had to be my dog. i ran upstairs to talk to my mom and remember her looking at me like i was crazy. she said she’d never think an ibizan would work out for me, they’re too prey driven she said. but, she let me send an email anyway.

My poor girl was attacked by another dog today 😓 we were out walking when two dogs came out of their (open and unsecured) back yard and rushed at us. one of them got straight into milly who luckily is well used to dogs attacking her and was able to defend herself. with me kicking and yelling and gaz barking and growling we managed to get away relatively unscathed (physically at least). i’m beyond sick of irresponsible dog owners allowing dangerous dogs to roam around unsupervised. this is the fourth time milly has been attacked by dogs in the area and i’m furious that all the socialising we’ve done to get her comfortable with dogs has now been undone yet again. and gaz already thinks the only dogs that come up to him are a threat. 😤 just so angry and frustrated right now...
