BIG STICK ENERGY
He’s okay thank god but he was just attacked by several dogs. He was on lead and they jumped at him and all had him on the ground. I could tell instantly it wasn’t play. I couldn’t even see him and could only hear him screaming beneath them. I kicked one of them quite hard but I think it was okay. He then slipped the lead and bolted. I already thought he was a goner because I thought they must have taken chunks at him, but when he ran and they chased him down I felt certain I would never see him again.
I was just running screaming they’re killing him they’re killing him.
He seems okay, miraculously. He has a cut on the corner of his eye which is a bit nasty. Will wash it out when I get home and hopefully won’t necessitate a vet trip. A few other little scratches, but all minor, and a bit of a lump but able to carry weight on all four.
Those dogs were where I would take the shortcut, so we’ve had to go all the way back.
Just feel so sick. I really thought I’d lost him.
He’s being so brave right now. I’m so proud of him. We just came across another dog and he was so good with it.
Fuck selfish dog owners who can’t be bothered to train or walk on lead breeds with the capacity for serious harm. Even if they were on lead there’s no way they could control that many.
Still a way from home. And now feeling bad for kicking a dog even though I was just trying to protect mine.
(I know kicking sounds a stupid thing to do as it’s likely to antagonise but at that point I couldn’t see him at all and he was shrieking. I genuinely thought they were ripping him apart so it was sheer desperation)
God that sounds so traumatic. So glad he’s ok x
oh my, that sounds awful. So pleased he’s okay
Fucking hell, that’s horrible. Hope he’s OK.
Reminder that you can report this to the police; it’s a criminal offence to be in charge of a dog that is deemed dangerously out of control, and other dogs and walkers may be at risk.
So sorry you two just had such an awful experience I hope you and Sascha are OK.
Very much agree with the sentiment of fuck lazy and selfish dog owners like that!!!
Big hugs xxxx
That’s terrible. It sounds like you both did brilliantly in the circumstances. My dog has been attacked a couple of times but nothing so serious.
I really hope you have both recovered and your beautiful dog’s injuries are really minor. Sending you lots of good wishes.
Thanks everyone. We’re back home now and he seems physically okay but he’s not himself at all
I just keep cuddling him and telling him he’s the most perfect good boy. He’s my whole world.
Hope you and Sascha are OK Wiley
Oh, I’ve just seen this. It’s horrible when something like this happens. Some people simply shouldn’t be allowed dogs.
Hope that Sascha is back to his normal self soon (and that you’re okay, of course).
Your beautiful boy will bounce back
How’s he doing now?
Asleep on the bed. I’d normally have a bit of a fight with him as he’s spread out over about 2/3 of it, but he can have all of it tonight if he wants.
Oh my god this is awful, I’m so sorry I can’t even imagine how scared you and Sasha must have been X
How are you and Sascha today, @wileycat?
He seemed well this morning, enjoyed a short walk through the woods
I’m recovered too, but think I might be quite nervous around off-lead dogs for a while.
That is the actual cutest
