Pedrito is tied for life

The day after my last post Pedrito antagonized Oscar again.  This time Oscar decided to grow a backbone. The fight was awful,  I truly believed that once it was over I was going to have to bury one or both of them.

I took a picture through the window but it did not turn out very good.  Poor Tammy gave up trying to separate them and just limited herself to barking at them.

I did not go out until the next morning to feed them.  Lucky for me Pedrito was starving to death, so I was able to tie him as he ate without him noticing.  He was limping and had lesions on his head and body.  I was surprised he ended with the short end of the stick...but he was the one that initiated the confrontation.

Oscar's face and ears were raw but he will never have to worry about being beaten up by Pedrito again. Though every time he leaves with Tammy, he comes back in bad shape.

To tie or not to tie?

I waiver back and forth on the pros and cons of keeping Pedrito tied up.  Today he gave me more arguments to keep him tied.

I feed him before I feed Tammy or Oscar to avoid fights.  This morning he thumbed his nose at the food I placed before him.

I saw Oscar laying down in the front yard so I went to feed him.  In no time flat Pedrito came running and tried to eat his food...the same food I had given him.  Of course, it ended up in a dog fight. Tammy came out of nowhere to get between them.

I threw water at them but quickly came inside.  I have enough drama in my life to add dog fights to the equation.
