My 2 year old Asher was attacked last night by my inlaws chow mix. The dog is known to be aggressive, the dog is usually not allowed in the house when we are there. My husband asked that the dog be put outside, his father refused and his brother was leaving town this morning to return to Alaska so it was not really possible for us to leave. Asher tripped over the dogs foot and fell, though NOT on the dog. The dog jumped up, pinned him to the floor and bit him multiple times. 1-2 times on the cheek and once on his head. Thank fully the dog had his shots. Asher is ok, swollen, bruised and 3 looping stitches by a plastic surgeon later he acts as though nothing happened last night. I however am very shaken. I saw this happen second by second. I relive it everytime I close my eyes. I am crying writing this even though I know he is OK. In the ER the surgeon waited while he was nursing and said that nursing will help the muscles and nerves reconnect to keep it up.
If I seem off I apologize, I am just not myself right now.
