Well now I have something to tell you lol Little Gissi suffers with a swollen Anal Glance which is not Funny I feel for the poor Guy But he has proven last night if he does wrong he admits it lol Well I went into the Kitchen to get a drink, when I came back as soon as I walked in Gissi growled I didn't know why as I had only got to get a drink, so what was wrong with that? Anyway I put my Drink down and went over to him, he was on the Settee, he growled at me still. I told him to stop being mardy, he kept glancing on the rug and then a side glance at me, which I could not understand. Anyway I followed his look and there it was, the poor Fellow had an accident, the thing that hurt me though was,when I looked at him there was a brief expression of fear, which I could not understand as I have never ever smacked him and he has never done this before, to me it actually looked like the glance must have emptied out. I gently spoke to him and told him it was ok, I then cleaned it. Once I had cleaned it he came bouncing up to me all happy which pleased me He never does anything like that and looking at it I am sure it came from the Glance As for the fear, all I can think of is that whoever threw him out must have hurt him for doing that But Gissi will own up to doing wrong, even though he growles as though it was me lol

Blesws him, he was embarrassed and grumpy, but at least he let you know he needed your help. What a good little fellow.

This situation shows that Gissi has a very long memory. You have had him for quite awhile now. But he still remembers that certain actions bring certain reactions. Since he loves you and knows you and trusts you, he told what he did. Yet he was hoping that what he feared the most would not happen. Then when the feared thing did not happen and the gentle words were given, he felt safe again. He is learning to trust again also. It is amazing how he can communicate with you. Give him a big hug. I hope he feels better soon.

Aww--poor Gissi...you're right, whoever had him prior to you must have punished him when he had accidents...He should know his mum would never punish him for a mere accident...but then I guess animals never lose that memory of the past...I'm glad he bounced back up and was happy after you told him it was okay

I guess that you did punish him anyway by typing this yourself instead of letting him onto the computer chair to type out about how surprised he was that he didn't get what he feared. Or did you hide that pen/pencil he'd pick up off the computer table that he would have used to peck at the keys with & forgot where you hid it? Just don't bang your head on the bottom of the table if you realize that you hid it down under there on the floor while retrieving it.

Awe, that was sweet of him to let you know what he did. I wish mine would let me know which one did it. I guess they don't want to tattletale on their buddies. It does sound like maybe he was beat before for doing that. The poor dear. Give him a hug for me please.

Aww the poor little fella! Give him hugs from Aunty Mo! I think you are right - that nasty person who hurt him before he found love and safety with you probably did hurt him badly when he was younger and had an accident! You know he is not scared of you - it is natural for some residual fear to stay with him because of the things that happened before - he couldn't love you anymore than he does - he told me - remember the conversations I have with him! lol xxx

awww how cute and how sad. It must of been he had been punished for it. Fang growled at a hat that HUbby had brought home and had hanging on wall in bedroom. took me awhile to figure out what he was growling at so I think he had been whooped with one at some time in his 6 months before we got him

Awwww....the poor little guy must have flashed back to all the abuse he received in the past, when he had his accident on your carpet. I think you're right. The previous loser that hurt him must have hurt him bad for having accidents too. I think you just reassured him that you won't do anything of the sort to him ever. And it made him very very happy. Lucky little man.

Aww the poor little guy must've thought he'd get wrong! Our dogs would usually hide if they had an accident or chewed something they shouldn't have. Hopefully it was the gland emptying like you say and he can be a bit more comfortable. Have you seen the vet about it? he may need anti-biotics or something to clear it up.

Aw, they can be so sweet, can't they? One of my dogs had an accident (urinated) on the couch and bed the other day. This isn't something she would do either but the vet says she had bronchitis and is 14 y/o (almost). He said it was normal for them to do that when they are that old and sick.

Gabs I am not sure if you mean anal gland but if that was his problem then I am surprised you did not notice a really bad smell. When dogs occasionally get blocked anal glands they scoot their butt across the floor and are pretty miserable. If this happens they need to be depleted to empty them, sometimes only one or both. I do not do this myself but take my dog to the vet. It only takes a couple of munutes and the dog feel better immediately.

Well that is what is surprising as even the Vet said there should be a smell but there isn't one He told me to put Olive oil in his Food that will help him empty it so that is what I do

The poor little man thought he was going to be beaten didn't he..I hate to think what the little guy went through before you got him. I am so glad that he has a sweet angel to take care of him.Every animal deserves to have a home where they do not have to live in fear and I'm so happy that our Gissi has one now.Give him a kiss on the nose from his Auntie Ray. xoxoxoxoxoxo

Awww - poor Gissi. That must be so painful for him. It's dreadful that he still feels fear because of what must have happened to him in his former home. Of course he trusts you, and knows that you would never hurt him.

Cuddle Gissi for me. He is a good dog. Poor Doggie. The growls and fear are definitely from the bad way he was treated. I never stop thanking Goodness that you found him. Hugs.

His problem is the Anal Glance and when it empties out he can't do anything to stop it and I prefer it to empty

I know that you are actually gone at this time, but this is one notification I had saved to respond to. I am thinking that Gissi growled because he knew that it was something that is generally displeasing, and he wanted it cleaned up. Notice how happy he was when it was cleaned up. I am glad that you do not punish him for what he does not mean to do, that just would not be fair.

Poor little Gissi. I so hate to think of anyone hurting him. He's such a cutie...I just don't uderstand why people get animals if they are going to be cruel to them. I'd like to see these people get hurt. Is it wrong for me to think this way? Lucy was also mistreated before we got her. I think she must have gone hungry quite often because she wolfs her food down and would eat all day if I let her. It's so sad. She gets fed and exercised, played with and cuddled all the time but she still eats as though she's starving and might not get fed again. :(

Poor Gissi, I hope he is feeling better now that the gland is empty. I hope you do not have to take him to the vet. Tell Gissi that he is such a good boy and is is ok. Petie does it a lot just because he is mad at mom.
