Hi Jo-Ann...Thanks for the response, and yes I have thought
about clipping her wings, I know it would deflate her ego a
bit, but I just don't have the heart. We have had Lola since
she was 2 months old, and she is now 1 and a half. We noticed
her starting this behavior when she was about a year old. My
husband travels a lot, and when he has been gone an extended
amount of time, she has sized him up and attacked him twice!
I told him at least he didn't have to worry about me having
strange men in the house when he's gone. Ha Ha
