Good god my puppy is teething andthe way to get puppy teeth out is to encouraging biting various things.

Thing is he likes to run around and play a lot, so Ive become a teething toy.

My hand is mostly scars (fresh ones, not my pre existing deep ones) now. Ugh.

And i was gonna play more PUBG tonight

Teething puppies are the scourge of electronics. Keep any cables out of reach.

I'd rather that Daxter stayed with us. I have terrible luck with dogs. My last Greyhound made it to 6 and my German Shepherd passed last year at 9.

And he has stopped trying to eat cables now. He prefers me. I've got teeth and claw marks up and down my arms now.

Well, if he hurts you then instead of just accepting it and teaching him that it's ok to hurt you, you could use this oportunity to teach him about boundaries and what's ok and what's not during playtime.

A nice way to show him that you're hurt is to react as a puppy would: yelp and remove yourself from play. Providing him with alternatives is also necessary, but don't do it after he hurts you, because that makes it a reward for hurting you.

When puppies grow with their littermates they teach each other, but when your only playmate is a human squeaky toy, it gets a bit harder to tell what's too much.

@Meowpheel He knows and stops. He can chew, but not clamp down as he does.

@Meowpheel As a puppy of around 14 weeks, he has less of what we know as dog teeth, and more little blades.

Here's the thing. The ability to pierce with these teeth is not the issue: He has none. He can chew, but that doesn't hurt unless he gets overzealous and slams his jaws down, at which point he gets the treatment you described above. At most that just leaves little dents. He has no biting power.

But as I mentioned, these teeth are like blades. So if he starts chewing, which is fine, when lying down next to me, that's what we want. But if he is higher on energy, bouncing around too much, what will happen is he forgets to let go, and thus those "Blade like" puppy teeth cut.

His claws are still far worse, being you know...claws, but little sharp puppy teeth exist to tear, rather than bite. That's where the problem comes from. He grabs hold and forgets to let go when he gets excited, so for a short time, he gets overzealous, but soon calms down when he sees he has done damaged.

He actually becomes very attentive with licks and such when he realises what he has done, and he is, mercifully enough, getting better.

It's a learning process. He is still in the stage of his life where everything is something to nibble on.

Well then that's good, he's learning.

If you want to minimize the damage to your arms then, you should try to "get hurt" before it happens. When you think he will get rowdy (should be easy to recognize his behavior since you play with him) then do a preemptive yelp.

Dogs do this too, it's actually rather funny when they start to cry from nothing at all.

(You should still try to make him chew on toys, not you, btw. It doesn't matter if he's hurting you or not)

Ugh, so Windows updated, and not only the network settings were freezing up/lagging horribly, but my internet stopped working completely. Had to struggle just to revert the update, put me in a crappy mood. I calmed down, though...but....ugh.

If some old bitty needs to be hit up side the head with mustard to get the word out then so be it. STREETS OF RAGE 4 COMIN' SOON @#$%&!

But why are you at a buffet? I get my food right out of trash cans I destroy just like Axel Stone. Don't let me hear about you eating fancy food any more if you want to be a true street brawler.

i was there just to beat up people that were eating fancy food. i ordered the wonton soup as a set up to start a fight in there, as i heard they always forget the ton in the won so that was motive for me to bash some heads. oh trust me i ate before i got there. i ate a hot dog i found in the cemetery right next to the chinese buffet.

have you ate there before? they serve a mean frankfurter if i must say so myself.

@Joeynator3000 That's why I always postpone the updates.

From what I can tell, they don't allow you to do that anymore. I've checked everywhere and there's no way to set it for manual updating.

It still has the update downloaded and installed, it only asks you that when it needs to restart your computer.

Yep, computers are a pain. I've recently spent a lot of time restoring mine from a previous backup, then slowly reinstalling things and fixing other things to get my computer back to how it was, then re-restoring it from the backup again after the problems reemerge.

At least I figured out the source of my problems. For whatever reason, whenever I tried uninstalling Monster Hunter Online, it would cause Windows to forget about a lot of other unrelated programs.

So my computer is all fine now, but RIP lost GTA saves.
