I lost the greatest sweetest most gentle dog I will ever have nearly 2 years ago. I grieve him everyday. Just tonight I began crying about him going down the dog food aisle. About 5 and a half months ago I got a puppy that was supposed to be golden retriever. It appears she is a goldendoodle. She is wired 24/7. She is always mouthing and biting--I have had 2 trainers--there has been some progress but not much. I can rarely cuddle with her as she is constantly grabbing something inappropriate to put in her mouth, just cannot lie still. She is only 8 months old. My problem is that I love her but I don't like her. I am not sure if someone else would take her with her biting, though I may be able to get that in hand. The minute I decide I will give her up I feel relief. Then I turn around and go the other way feeling protective of this little goof (apparently goldendoodles have this "arousal" problem, which I guess explains her hyper craziness). Part of me wants to take care of her like one would a child with a handicap. I love her. I just don't like her very much. What should I do?????

I would work to get off of my meds altogether. (Years and years of taking meds that don't help have left me frustrated and fairly angry.) Treatment for mental illness is not for the...
