Bella's relapse

For months, Bella the Chihuahua has been undergoing rehabilitation exercises to cure her of her criminal tendencies. Using the Ludovico technique, we were able to make great progress. Her natural inclination to bite and growl and bare her teeth gradually faded. The Chihuahua who had terrorized the Mexican countryside was becoming a lady. But then, tragedy struck. On a recent walk around the neighborhood, Bella was attacked by a stray canine. Physically, she is fine. But this attack let loose the demons that had been suppressed deep within her soul. Bella's retaliation was swift and harsh. Her angry, incessant yelp returned -- a warning to all within earshot. At this very moment, Bella is seated on her couch, her head literally spinning on its axis in a way that Allah never intended. Pray for the former Sister Bella -- and for that poor pit bull attacker who incurred her wrath.

Was this Bella during her reformation?

Poor, poor Bella. She will be in our prayers.

Are Pit Bulls the canine equivalent to terrorist? I too have been attacked recently by a pitbull mix. After praying about it, I came to the conclusion that it isn't the dog's fault, but some irresponsible humans! However, my mom now carries a big stick when we go walking. She will punish whoever is handy, human or dog! We pray for Bella's full recovery.

It may be, Leslee. Is that a Mexican police car?

If Bella were not busy levitating above her bed and spewing obscenities in foreign tongues, she would surely thank you for your prayers, Boomer and Anonymous One.

I am sure there are many nice pit bulls; they just have to be raised properly, in a good canine Muslim home.

I need some advice, oh wise one. I've recently overheard some chatter within my house that involves talk of a Chihuahua puppy coming to live with us permanently. Given the problems you've encountered with Bella, can I do anything to persuade my mother's clan that the house is not ready for such an intrusion? My mother is lobbying hard to add a pug to our home, which I can accept more easily, assuming it stays out of my toy stash.
