|Comment||Thank you for responding to my question - I have concluded that we never going to know the cause or events that lead to these unfortunate circumstances. I have been closely monitoring my dog and feel that this may have just been them playing rough as I can't say that my dogs personalities have change. I was in such a state last week as not only had I lost my cats I thought that I no could have my dogs and needed to rehome them or worse. I see now this is not the case and my dogs will remain my wonderful kids, I have been loving them emensly so they are not held responsible for an act that was either accidental playfulness or due to a territory dispute. Thank you again for you information and help. Andrea|

I can answer questions pertaining dog psychology and general dog behavior. Why is my dog doing this? And what can I do about it? are common questions I am asked. I will not answer questions concerning health problems as this is out of my spectrum, but I can recommend a vet visit if there are chances behavioral problems may stem from a possible underlying medical problem.
