Lesson in anger management

Driving with my Lab puppy Sophie sitting in the passenger seat. Got angry at a driver who cut me off and yelled a few obscenities. Heard a whimper beside me and saw Sophie staring at me with the most heart-breaking, frightened look on her precious face. Poor girl thought I was yelling at her. Pulled over, gave her a nuzzle and told her She was a good girl. So sorry Sophie! So I learned a lesson in anger management not from a counsellor or shrink but from my furry little roommate. Lesson learned!

When you have a faithful four legged little friend, who needs a shrink.

Ummmm...no...a pet is not an adequate substitute for sitting with a professional to work through and unwind the layers of repression to identify and figure out a plan of self-care/self-regulation for the source of that behavior. Their sweet pet merely helped them realize their behavior was savage and unacceptable.
