We had Gage for a week and loved all 56 pounds of him.
The little dogs, Bruster and Bella, never took to him the way we did.
A 17 pound ten year old dog vs a 56 pound ten month old dog in a battle isn't good.
Bruster lost the battle with Gage and it wasn't Gage's fault.
We're not sure if Bruster's jaw hit Gage's hard head or caught his tooth on his collar,
but Bruster's jaw was dislocated and his tooth was broken. Of course, it had to happen
after the vet was closed so it ended up being a trip to the vet ER. Bruster had the tooth
removed and got three stitches in his mouth. He was in a lot of pain...poor baby!
Things didn't get any better, so we were lucky my son's ex-roommate wanted Gage back.
We miss him, but the constant vigilance to keep them apart has ended. Whew!
Gage was a great dog and without Bossy Bruster, he would have been a great for us.
Luckily, I'll still get to visit him once in a while!
