Dangerously Stupid Dog Owners.

I think you should have to pass a class, with a real live dog before you are allowed to adopt one. I also feel this way about kids, but today this is about dogs. Tonight I was taking Oliver out for a nice leisurely walk when this black lab spotted him and dragged his tiny kid owner all the way across street and beelined for Oliver. This kid had absolutely no control over the wild dog, The dog being like 10 times the size of Oliver was playing very rough and nipping at Oliver and Oliver started yelping and was terrified, so I bent down to split them up and the lab lept open mouthed for Oliver, I panicked and litterally threw myself on the ground on top of Oliver to protect him from this big dog. I was so terrified for him, that he would get hurt, I didn’t even think twice about putting myself in the line of fire, risking getting bit myself, all I could think was that this dog could easily kill my baby Oliver.

I picked Oliver up in my arms and was just in total fight or flight panic mode, the kid kept apologizing over and over, his dog is not good with other dog’s and can be rough. I just kept saying, You shouldn’t walk him if you can’t control him. He could have seriously hurt my pup.

I didn’t even know I got hurt til I got home and felt pain in my knee. I have a big bloody chunk out of my knee, I must have fallen on a rock or something. Oh well, my knee will heal, I was so afraid my little Oliver.

I had to have a dose of Rescue Remedy to stop the anxiety when I got home. GRRR!

“Life is like riding a bicycle. To keep your balance you must keep moving.” — Albert Einstein. When it feels like your world has been shattered, and you have reached rock bottom, you must make a choice: Stay where you are and fade away, or keep moving forward. Thankfully I chose to move forward and was blessed with the two most wonderful children after the death of my first in early labor. Things are looking up.

  1. Eeep! Scary! But what fantastic reflexes you have!

  2. As an owner of a larger/dominant/aggressive dog who has desperately wanted to eat play with a smaller dog on multiple occasions, I totally agree with you on the importance of “training” the humans! My pet peeve (pun intended?) is when people walk with their dogs…without leashes! Because I have a dog who gets tempted easily, it’s so much easier to control her when the other dog isn’t walking freely. How am I supposed to protect my own dog (and the other dog) when the other dog wants to play and keeps approaching us? *end rant*

    • Totally, I never walk my dog off leash unless we are in an off leash dog park or our own yard. If we are in the dog park then I hope to goodness that any agressive dog’s are kept on a short leash while there. I mean all dogs are welcome, but typically that is what happens. Like I mean the owner will hold their dog’s leash tight off to the side and say to us that the dog dosen’t play well with others and so we just keep walking past. I ALWAYS ask before I let Oliver approach another dog, but this damn dog litterally ran right for us across the street, both dogs leashed. GRRR. I was so stressed, my dog is my life right now.

  3. Holy crap.
    Irresponsible dog owners are the freaking worst. NExt to irresponsible human-spawners, UGH.
    You know my personal pet peeeve with people not picking up their dog’s shit… almost as dangerous as having no control over your dog!
    Kisses to your poor knee and sweet Oliver ❤

  4. oh my gosh! *hugs* i’m glad you guys are both relatively okay, but what an awful thing to have happen!

  5. Ergh….I hate that kind of stuff. I totally agree.
    And good job protecting your Oliver!
