Took Bambi on a walk today, and she immediately stated acting like a butthole – ie. growling, snarling and trying to attack other dogs. She has serious small-dog-asshole syndrome, that I’ve never been able to break. My newest tactic has been to try the Gentle Leader. All it’s done so far is make her look even crazier when we pass other dogs, which in turn makes me look like the crappiest dog owner ever. I’m not a bad dog owner, I swear! She’s just a crazy mean old chihuahua. See below, Butthole Bambi in action on a normal everyday walk.
Her being a butthole on our entire walk soured my mood, which then soured the mood of the aussie, B. Not even my new scarf fixed things and I had a squeeze out a smile for this photo.

PS. I’ve had Bambi for about 6 years now, and she’s been this way the whole time. I’ve tried everything under the sun to train her, from dog whisperer style to pack walks to muzzles to hired expensive trainers. Nothing has worked, so I’ve resigned to just accept her for who she is – a mostly sweet cuddler who loves squeaky toys but hates all other dogs and children. And before you pass judgment on me for naming my dog Bambi, she came from the rescue with a gag-reflex name: Barbie.
