Beat my dog today, need advice

Long story short..

Rough week at work and today was the worst. I get home and my dog starts barking and jumping on me. I push her away but she just keeps at it. I am getting really mad when she does it again. I only meant to give her a slight punch but I hit her 3-4 times really really hard. That kind of relieved some stress but now she is hiding in a corner from me and acts as if she is hurt.

I thought I should take her to the vet, but even if she is ok, I am afraid she will always be afraid of me now.

She is only 4 years old, so what should I do. I could give her away to someone she is not afraid of, but I know once a dog is timid, it usually stays that way. I don't want her to be scared all her life.

Should I just have her put down for her own sake?
I could get a new dog then that isn't afraid of me.

She is a Sheltie if that make a difference.

You really shouldn't own a dog.

Re: Beat my dog today, need advice

Yes, I think it's a wonderful idea to put your animal down because you lost your temper because your dog was too excited to see you. You're surprised she's hiding in the corner after you struck her? If you don't want your dog to be scared all its life, maybe you shouldn't beat it. If she acts like she's hurt, she might very well be. If so, then yes, you should take her to the vet.

Is this thread for real?

Re: Beat my dog today, need advice

I thought about letting this post going for awhile, but I can see it getting really ugly.
Just a stupid bored out of my head joke.

I love Lexi (my sheltie). and would never let harm come to her.

I was planning of stirring people up, like others have done on here.
Changed my mind, dont want to be that way


Actually it was my wife I beat

Re: Beat my dog today, need advice

This has to be a troll. Easily the worst case of trolling I've seen since the last time Grundle started a post about something he read on some insane right-wing conspiracy website.

At least that is what I'll keep having to tell myself so I don't lose all faith in humanity.

My advice is to give it a few days. The old saying about a dog licking the hand of it's killer. Absolutely true. She'll get over it.

I hope someone from IB checks his IP and reports this to ASPCA & his local police. This is an admission of a crime and would certainly be reported if he said he said the same thing about a child.

OP: Get some help. Now. Your response to a request for love should never be abuse. You're having a bad week at work and you don't welcome a friendly escape? Sounds like the bad thing about this week is you. You're creating conflict at home because there's conflict at work. You can't fix the work problem by creating one at home.

Re: Beat my dog today, need advice

Like I said - stupid time filler - you can see I only wasted 10 minutes before I came clean. Really I was just trying to get KVRdave to post in one of my threads and I knew this would do it. Now I can murder/suicide my sheltie and be happy.

I really do love all animals and always use a condom

I feel deceived.

But I do love all the other comments. "You probably wouldn't even let animals vote. YOU SUCK!!!!"

Re: Beat my dog today, need advice

I promise you Oscar, I have never hurt my dog not if even a spanking for being bad.
My wife does that cause she says I only tap her and she can't feel it through her fur.

Again I time waster and something to entertain you folks

I did shave her this summer, that was pretty cruel for her to have to look that way.
