A couple weeks ago I got a dog, she's very sweet and follows me around the house which is fine except we have a small house and she's often under foot when I go to do something. Now that she's settling in I thought she'd stop following me all around the house.
However, what I hadn't taken into consideration was my cat's incredibly skilled abilities and her tendencies to use them against things she doesn't like. Jacqueline, my cat, hides behind furniture and when the dog walks by she jumps out and rakes her claws on the dog's back legs. My dog is now terrified to go anywhere without me and whimpers when my cat comes in the room.
