I am having a small problem with Charlie. The schedule she and I are on at the moment is that she goes to bed b/w 12-1 and wakes up around 11. Generally, although its unhealthy for me, I sleep past then, so I get her up, walk her, and after she does her business I take her into bed with me to sleep a little longer.
My problem is not (as Scarlette mentioned in the other thread) that she thinks its wrestling time, but that she bites my hands. She's small so it's not hard as ****, but sometimes it hurts...I've taken to just keeping my arms under the blanket however this morning she bit me on the nose.
Also, I have chewsticks, but when I give her one she either ignores it, or knocks it down to chase the hand I'm giving it to her in. The problem being, even if I remove my hand she'll chase it, she thinks its a game or something. Anyway to get to the point, she doesn't really understand "NO!" even in a stern loud voice. So, how can I get her to bite the chew stick without killing my hand? (or nose, or ear lobe, or glasses) There are other things for her to chew on, she just seems to prefer my flesh.
...Goodness is achieved not in a vacuum, but in the company of other men, attended by love. I, in this room, seperate, alienated, distrustful, find in my purpose not an open world, but a closed, hopeless jail. My perspectives end in the walls. Nothing of the future comes to me. Only the past, in its shabbiness and innocence. Some men seem to know exactly where their oppourtunities lie; they break prisons and cross whole Siberias to persue them. One room holds me. --Saul Bellow
