I'm glad OC is ok! At least the guys apologized but god, I'm so sick of irresponsible people!
I think the worse part about it is the same people who leave their dogs unleashed, smack and correct their dog when they finally do come back to them for the attack and not coming back sooner. I mean c'mon!! How is the dog supposed to understand that??? Argh!
I dunno I have always seemed to have an instinctual knack for getting in the way of an attack on my pups. I can take it and understand that some people and their dogs arent to civilized, the dog may not look at it that way. So I essentially nip the problem in the bud. Luckily ive only gotten hurt once.
I hate it when my dogs get attacked by onther huge mean dogs...this is what happened to my Snowy,
We were on vacation in Germany -July, 2005-. My sister, Snowy and I were in an underground train station waiting for the train when suddenly a big black dog came running towards us. He attacked Snowy -for no reason!!- Snowy couldn't move or escape from that dog because he was just on top of him. My sister and I were shocked and didn't know what to do or how to apart the two dogs. Luckily, The owner of the dog was there, and was yelling at the dog calling his name -Antone- and trying to pull her dog away from Snowy. She kicked him so hard that the dog left Snowy. Then, the owner took her dog and ran away as fast as she could without even apologizing. She took the first train that arrived and disappeared. That really made me angry. The first thing that I did when Snowy was released from that mad dog is carry him and give him kisses and hugs. I checked if he was hurt or not, but luckily, he wasn't injured -just a shaky scared maltese-
cases like that makes me appretiate my dogs breed.
I dunno, I'm glad OC doesn't really fight much, I'd feel awful if he hurt someone else's dog even if they were the instigator and that way they can put no blame on him at all if we went to court.
