All about Guy
Unfortunately the following two scenarios occur from time to time: You’re innocently petting your cat or dog when all of a sudden your pet bites you. The same reaction can happen when you pick up your cat or dog the way you always do, when all of a sudden it bites you. What is going on here? Your pet NEVER bites you, and now that you are trying to show it some love, it bites you. Has your pet gone mad? What might be going on here is pain induced aggression.
It seems so obvious after you bring your pet to a veterinarian to figure out what is going on, but it may be as simple as pain induced aggression. Pain induced aggression means that your pet has exhibited an aggressive behaviour because it is in pain. This is especially common in older pets that may be suffering from arthritis or perhaps one of their internal organs is bruised or diseased.

My name is Guy and I was rescued from a smelly gas station in Vancouver where I was wandering around, trying to find my family! I guess they just misplaced me by accident!
At the gas station I was greeted by a nice man (he was called Guy too - what a coincidence) who took me to a nice warm kennel at the Vancouver Animal Shelter. I liked everyone at the shelter but I wanted my own house to run around in again! I knew after a few days that my family weren't coming for me but that was ok because a nice couple came by everyday to see me, play with me and take me for long walks beside a lake.
Then one day they came by with a new collar and leash for me and I now get to play, sleep and eat with them forever in my nice new house!
My new Mum and Dad love me very much and I am even allowed on the sofa! They aren't sure how old I am, but have had a good guess and my new birthday is Halloween - the day they brought me home to keep me safe from the fireworks!
I have great fun with my Mum and Dad. We go for long hikes and I even tried canoeing, which was a bit boring as I wasn't allowed to jump overboard and swim! Swimming is my favourite hobby and I can even chase my tail and swim at the same time now!
I get scared around some other dogs and they make me mad and grumpy, but when I see another dog that I don't know, I get to sit down and have a cookie until they walk by! They always look at me and I can tell they are so jealous! I don't like cats much either - they are too fast for me!
I have a new step-cousin called Taiga who I tease a lot, but I love him! I get to see him often and it's nice to have a buddy to hang out with!
I love my life and my new life adores me!
I'm off to play with my new ball!
