Hello everyone, so glad to be here. Honey Scared By Hurricane Irene's WindLike the title says, my name is James. I am from Ontario, some 30 years ago, but now live in Moncton, New Brunswick Canada. I feel in love with the Maritimes after my first visit. I think it was the fact that in Ontario it took me hours to get out of Toronto and had to fight traffic all the time. Here in Moncton I can be out of the city in just a few minutes. I can be out on walking trails or fishing within a half hour to an hour, easily. It's actually a big part of why I moved here 30 years ago. About our dog, Honey. She is our son's Pit Bull. We are so proud of our son as he went to get himself a dog, at the SPCA. He saved Honey from a fate I'd rather not think about. Very proud. Honey's definitely Steve's dog, although we do everything for her of course and he just gets to take credit. Even when it comes to the training. Honey had been abused and eventually ended up at the SPCA, after being toss from a three story building because her previous owner wasn't pleased with her. Busted up her right front paw so that it will always give her problems, but our son still picked her. He's not a little boy either, just to us, he is actually in his mid 20s. Honey Came With A Few Problems Honey was quite intimidating to say the least. My wife and myself slept with the bedroom door closed for about a year, expecting her to rip out our throats. The media had us terrified, but we learned that she is just a big baby who wants to give and be loved. Just that simple. Honey did like to jump on people as her way of greeting them but I don't like that and quickly worked at getting her to stop jumping. It took me a month or so to get her to stop completely. She also loved to eat just about anything, well at least chew them up until they are no longer recognizable. I think this was just nerves as she had been through a lot before she fell in love with Steve. The first couple of chew toys we bought her didn't last a day, even the toughest chew toys we found. We ended up getting her a cows leg I think. She doesn't chew other things now. She's a big part of the family now, after 3 years, and we will be lost when those two move out on their own. when she first made our home her home was her jumping on people. I focused on having her not jump on people and today she doesn't do that if I am home. However when she is in Steve's care, meaning I'm not there Honey still likes to jump on old friends.
