It might be my fault

I looked in to the puppy not liking the skids online.  It's google so it's not the bible but I feel some of what I read makes sense.

Dogs use their sense of smell to assess people. Our body gives off pheromones with different emotions that humans dont smell but the dogs do. When I heard the skids wake up at 530 my mood changed in a flash. I didnt change my outer behavior but my insides want to vomit. When the skid start rustling around and walking down the stairs the dog started barking & growling. SHe is sensing my anxiety rising so hers does since I am her bestie right now while her mama is away. I feel kind of bad that my distaste for them makes the pup on edge. Ill have to try to control my negative emotions but when i hear the door open when they get home from school it's a bad feeling.

They also have a different way of assessing strangers like those who stop to say hello on the street cuz SHE IS SOOO CUTE! I guess it is all based on smell and peoples emotions like if they are anxious, angry or just mean spirited people. Im going to be nice an guess that it's my reaction to skid presence is the problem and the skids arent actually emitting evil. Lets see what happens when BM shows up on Saturday lol

my pets could SENSE EVIL, FERALNESS and NASTINESS as well as sheer HATE which was taught by the Girhippo 'n' Clan 24/7.

My skids & BM could never compare to the House Shitter & Girhippo. Didn't a skid shoot a bb at your cat. My skids are pretty harmless.

I completely believe this- I am so sorry that your inner feelings are so intense that your new dog senses it and wants to protect you.  Talk about added stress to an already stressful situation.

I think dogs are just naturally skittish around kids. I mean if they are poking in it's face and picking it up and petting it roughly the dog is going to hear them and go "oh crap are they coming for me again!"

after seven years that the dog gives him a clue to how I am feeling. If I’m anxious and upset with DH present, even without me talking, the dog must be able to smell it and comes to me also all agitated and wiggly. Very intently focused on me. If I’m alone he does it but more snuggly. I can let out my anger without him getting involved but if I’m suppressing, mostly sad/upset emotions, the dog is all over me. 

Regarding advice’s comment, our dog may be unusual but he loves kids, the younger they are the gentler he becomes.

I dont really buy into this. My insides change 1000 % when SO's daughter is her but my dog still likes her. And shes i usually very friendly but every once in awhile just decided to not like some people as much as others.

Who knows why. I just found it interesting. Maybe they really are demons cuz BM has quite the evil side. My husband is a sweetie though just dumb as fuck. The little skids do have a little of DHs sweetness in them but they have learned to lie & manipulate through BM.

Monday. This is the kids wknd to go to BM so thats good but they are leaving on Saturday instead of Friday and coming back Sunday early afternoon instead of evening. Par for the course. Cant even get a 48 hr break every 2 weeks. I guess 30 hrs is better than nothing.
