Don't touch my freakin Dog!!!

Posted by   + Show Post

I'm at the dog park today with my two girls. Lilly is a spotted pointer and lab mix and Emiliy is a Bully Jack, (Jack russle terrier and Bull terrier)

Great dogs :-)

So they're off having fun and I see Lilly rough housing around with a boxer. Next thing I know, the boxer snaps at Lilly and the fight is on. They're wrestling on the ground and snarling at each other. I yell "Lilly GO!" She tries to run but the dog is still attacking her. The other owner is just standing there like an idiot not doing a damn thing so I grab my water bottle, filled with 1/4 vinegar and 3/4 water, and douse them in the face. The boxer stopped dead in his tracks and poor Lilly hid under the table shaking.

 The owner finally gets off his ass and starts yelling, "What did you dump on my dog?!" I told him it was vinegar water and I wouldn't have needed it if he had controlled his dog instead of just watching like an idiot. He turned a pretty shade of purple and I just walked away.

Then my heart dropped. The side of Lilly's face was covered with blood. Oh God...I took her the hose, rinsed her off and discovered a partially chewed ear. That's it. Thank you Goddess! I took her home and she's okay now but I'm still soo pissed! The dog park is supposed to be a safe place. Now I don't know if I ever want to take her back :-(

THe other owner was WTONG.  I see this on judge Judy all the time.  An owner MUST control his dog or pay the consequences

So sorry to hear that. Poor girl! I love dogs but truly HATE irresponsible dog owners. I have never trusted  "dog parks" for just that reason. Hope she heals quick.
