Well that's a first. And it's turning into a nasty bruise too! We took Sierra with us yesterday to have dinner with Matt's dad and step-mom, (the point of the trip was actually to view a wedding venue, we were going to be gone for a full day). Sierra has been there many times, and gets along well with their dogs, but they have a new dog now. Getting out of the car two of three dogs were out of the house and ran right up to us. Sierra greeted the one she knew, no problem. The new dog she snarked at (didn't help that she was on a 2' leash...). Normally if the dog doesn't snark back, Sierra settles down and is okay. If the dog does snark back, Sierra escalates. Lily decided to snark back. In fact she decided to do more than snark. Sierra started it and Lily fully intended to tell her who's who. I was VERY pleased with Sierra, because she backed right off! However, she decided to hide behind me, and as Matt's dad pulled Lily away, my leg was in between Lily and Sierra and I ended up being bit on the thigh. I didn't tell them that she'd bit me. It didn't break skin and to be fair I got in the way. But MAN does that spot hurt! I'm just glad I was wearing jeans and not thinner pants. (After that they did relax around each other and played like crazy. So I'm sure this won't happen again).
