Dog Psychology 101 – Grandma is mauled by her own dog and she still keeps ferociously loving and defending them…
You won’t believe that post.
I promise you; it’s not made up. Really.
“Grandmother on fixed income,
has lost many teeth,
and my smile!“
I was really curious about Grandma Linda and her extreme behavior on this site, always reverencing dogs and blaming the ‘haters’. It was over the top, even for the average type of regular dog owner of today, that seems to be the vast majority.
So, I did a little research on her.
Nothing found on Facebook that could conclusively prove that one of the people I found there was her.
I was just about to give up, as it was meant to be only a quick search, not a thorough investigation, when I remembered I could use one last trick. And that worked! I found her! At least one comment that, as I said, you won’t believe, but is true. Would be comic, if not tragic, as it is.
That is, by Grandma Linda herself:
“I’m 64, and until my dog chewed up my upper partial, I at least had some teeth on top that preserved my beautiful smile. My grandchildren now say I don’t smile anymore, and it pains me for sure! A few of the teeth that broke off, still have the roots in the gums. I can make small monthly payments, but who will help me?”
Again, I didn’t make that up.
That request for close-to-free medical assistance because of a dog mauling – her own dog – was posted on September 23, 2011 – 6:02 PM at Dr. Oogle – The Best Dentist Guide – By Patients for Patients, well before we came to know her, or when this website didn’t even exist.
I’m not the kind of person to poke fun on people suffering from catastrophic events, even by dogs, and I’m not, but this case is absolutely worth mentioning. It was catastrophic as an event by itself, but not traumatizing for her, as it seems.
I was not expecting to find that, at all. Surely I was suspicious that I’d see some compromising stuff, but not that.
What can we learn from this tragedy?
What can we get out of this story? Well, that dog owners, pooch lovers, canine apologists and the like are persons with extreme mental problems. Clear psychological issues.
They can not deny that anymore, although they will, for sure.
Worse, they undoubtedly will claim that us the ‘haters’ are the ones who suffer from a mental disorder.
Normal people can clearly see who are who.
This is not an isolated case, as ODORs will certainly say, we can find numerous comments that support this assertion. Please find some on the links at the bottom of this page.
Stockholm Syndrome from dogs?
Is that a case of Stockholm Syndrome as well?
No, it’s not. At least not exactly, let’s keep it this way.
According to the Merriam-Webster Medical Dictionary, the Stockholm Syndrome is, summarized, defined as:
The psychological tendency of a hostage to bond with, identify with, or sympathize with his or her captor.
Grandma Linda above was not a hostage (actually she was the captor of the dog that mauled her) but had and still has a clear “psychological tendency… to bond with, identify with, or sympathize with… her ” mauler!
To me, that is an obvious mentally challenged person – a regular dog owner of today.
PS. Before you all canine apologists who consider yourself Responsible Dog Owners start to call me all names, please read this post here and then, only then, decide if you are a normal person an still want to scold me.
If you are fully responsible, as in the previous link, then congratulations; you are Not a regular dog handler as Grandma Linda unfortunately is.

Ps 2. I just noticed that without this exact paragraph here, at the time of first publishing right now, this post has exactly 666 (six hundred and sixty six words), the number of the beast, something that Grandma Linda and her doggists colleagues love to venerate. Again, I did not make any adjustments for that to happen. Coincidence?
