He decided to take a shower. His dog was raised and trained in a very black and white world. Meaning you are either a good guy, or you are dead. We did not think another rule through, beforehand. When you are alone, inside of a confined space, no one enters!
Before the shower, he was in the house with us. Once he climbed in the shower, the dog was now alone, in a confined space.
Thank goodness, that he let God train his dog, so the dog still growled at a passive subject, to warn of her displeasure.
Those kinds of accidents do still happen to me, but ONLY ONCE BEFORE I LEARN.
I had agitated this dog. I had muzzle fought with this dog. This dog knew damn well who I was ... a sometimes evil doer. Once you piss off a dog, from that day forward, they watch you like a hawk.
What saved my ass, was that God programmed her to growl FIRST at a PASSIVE subject, and this guy did not feel the need to train it away.
I say PASSIVE subject, because that is what I mean. Had I picked up a weapon, made the tiniest move towards her, or even made eye contact, it would have been a messy situation.
She was between me and the only exit. I needed to talk loud enough, to get his attention in the shower. I also had to be quiet enough so this dog did not view it as anything but normal behavior. ANY behavior that is not normal, would have triggered his dog.
From that day on, I had a new rule. If you are staying with me, and you are leaving the room, for more that 1/16 of one second, TAKE YOUR DOG WITH YOU!
