Ollie seems to think he is a big boy now, and doesn't need his mommy anymore he was a big brat tonight he was sitting up on the fridge and I put my hand to step up to take him to bed and he started freaking out on me trying to bite my hand he got me a few times but thankfully he wasn't biting full force or anything like that but he did give me a nip or two :rolleyes: I don't know whats gotten into him today must be his raging hormones, he stepped up for Ian fine didn't even try to bite him but me he acted like I was dinner :eek: I don't think I am liking this male hormonal thing...lol I am kind of glad I only have one :D

Gracie does that to me, it's so annoying!! :p I'm sure he'll get over himself in a day or two, Bailee has his cranky days sometimes too.

Oh dear, sounds like we have a boy who didn't want to be interupted :D
Hope he stops biting, and he goes back to his normal self :)

hehe.... Georgie does that to but the most I get from her is a hiss and a threat and she puts her head down so she doesn't have to step up but if I persist with her she will do it, but him he was something else last night :rolleyes:

Yes!!! Yes!!!! *Jumps around the room punching the air*

That is exactly like Dooby.....he was fine with Darryl, but it's full force attack on me! Oh I am so pleased that somebody else has gone through the same as me and I know it's not something that I've done wrong.

*Calming down*

I'm so sorry to hear that Laura, it's just so frustrating isn't it. Dooby has actually had me in tears because of his biting and through sheer frustration of his behaviour. Today Dooby is fine, just like his old self, but it kind of makes me a little bit nervous about getting him to step up in case I get bitten again. It has to be a hormonal thing and hopefully with time we will get back our "normal" tiels.

hehe.... we could form a club together seeing as we are he only ones with bratty hormonal tiels on the attack right now :p

It took me a little bit by surprise that he was that aggressive I am just thankful he didn't draw blood but I do think if I persisted any longer........I wonder why there ok with Darryl and Ian and not us....must be a male thing....LOL

We will see how he acts today with me :rolleyes:

I love this part...hehe
They can seem to turn on and off like a switch. One day, he's very the sweetheart you remember and the next day, he's back to needing an Exorcism.

Gracie is a boy :confused: I must of missed something.
No Gracie is a girl, I think Bea just meant the tempermental part of it girls can get like that to, Georgie will hiss at me and refuse to step up and threaten to bite me but she is just more bark then bite :p , I think males just do it on a larger scale
