Kaos is Not Dog Aggressive

in Tales of Kaos

I’ve realized the last couple days, from emails that I’ve received about Kaos, that I’ve apparently given people the impression that she is dog aggressive. That is NOT the case. The disagreement that ended with Dakota’s eye being banged up the first day Kaos got to Ami’s was over food and it’s actually Dakota that is food aggressive, not Kaos. The two dogs didn’t know each other yet, Ami fed them near each other, Dakota got snarky (hey! he’s a Shiba!) and Kaos got mad at him. Just dog stuff.

To prove my point, here is a picture of Dakota and Kaos that Ami took last week. Click through for more pictures of Kaos.

The two main reasons that Kaos needs to move out are that (1) Ami and Mike’s daughter is afraid of her and (2) Kaos chases the cats. We don’t know if she wants to play with them or eat them and we’d like to not find out!

I mark this post confirmed! Kaos loves to play with other dogs, and it seems that she’s caught on that Dakota isn’t her equal in terms of size.

Bottom line: Kaos is great with dogs, especially if they know how to share 😛

OMG, how cute. Good to know, Jenna. I had a semi-impression that that was the issue, so I’m glad you’re clarifying. 🙂

Awwww…cute shot!

Finding out if she wants to play with or eat the cats would actually be a good thing, but definitely needs to be done by someone w/ experience and who has cats with experience. If I thought I would be anything less than totally insane to take on another dog, I’d offer to at least foster her and let her learn kitty manners from my crew, ’cause they’re all (a) fully armed, (b) have lots of escape routes and (c) aware that if they sit still sometimes dogs won’t chase them (Drummer chases them if they move… he just can’t resist).

Unfortunately, between my travel schedule for this summer and the potential of Chase having cataract surgery, I think I need less upheaval in my household in the short term. *rolls eyes*

Jenna, is Kaos in PA, right now? Maybe Charlie and I can help. We can both “read” her, if we make the trek out to where she is, find out more about why she chases the cats, etc.
It might be interesting to see what we both pick up.
I know you are EXTREMELY busy, but just drop me a line when you can on this. I’ll e-mail you.
