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!
