Loose Dogs Again!

I took the boys out with my Mum this afternoon, now I know Joe can be anti-social with other dogs so I usually have him muzzled. However today it was exceptionally quiet and there was no-one about, or so I thought, so I left his muzzle off. Not that, that really makes any difference, as in this instance Joe didn't start it. But mine were both leashed anyway, when suddenly out of nowhere a terrier type dog came tearing up and stood growling at them. I don't think it was actually looking for a fight, but just being bolshie as some terriers can be. But that was enough for Jack and he set on it, Joe obviously quickly joined in. Anyhow we managed to haul them off it, and it ran away, just as the owner and his other dog appeared on the scene. He was so far away from us he had to ask me what happened! Now it's quite common for people to let their dogs off-leash in the UK, and I don't have a problem with that..........provided they can keep them under control. Which he obviously couldn't or wasn't doing. I could see a lot of blood round Joe's mouth, but at that point hadn't had chance to check him, so I had no idea if it was from him or the other dog. The guy then had the nerve to tell me wait there whilst he found his dog and checked it for injuries, as if in which case it was he'd want my details! I'm afraid I can't print my reply to him, so I'll leave that one to your imagination! I'm sorry if his dog was hurt, and I think it probably did get quite badly bitten, but Joe got a nasty bite to his face, which has punctured right through into his mouth. He has some other wounds on his face, but they're fairly superficial. Anyway I got straight off to the vet, and she's put a staple in the main wound and he's on antibiotics. We have to go back on Monday and get it checked and all being well the staple can come out in 10 days. So he's feeling pretty sorry for himself right now.

Poor Joe!


Feel better soon. Angie, I think you should break out the sherry :grouphug


Actually it's cider tonight :P He's pretty zonked right now, I think that's probably the painkiller she gave him. It hasn't put him off eating though, as soon as we got back from the vet he went and stood by the treat drawer waiting, and he ate all his dinner fine. I always say the day that boy is off his food is the day I'll be extremely worried about him.


Thank you all for your good wishes :)

Poor frankenmouth houndy!


So sorry for you both to have gone through this. It's a nightmare. At least it wasn't worse for you all! I hope the terrible terrier is alright, too.
