Why can't people have a better handle on their animals. Partly my fault, I was going to the dog park to meet up with my regular group so our dogs could play/blow off some steam..it's been a while since I've gone so I didn't know some of the people there. I know remember why I've been avoiding the place for so long.
We were just thru the gates, Gaia was still leashed and this beast of a pit comes out of no where and attacks Gaia. I was too shocked to react, she didn't want to back down, it could have been a mess. Luckily I managed to separate them after what felt like forever but was only a couple seconds, Gaia has a little cut under her eye (according to the vet it's causing me more pain than her). Idiot dog owner, who seems like the type to own a pit because of the reputation they have, comes up to me as I'm crying putting the dog back in the car telling me that his dog is 5 years old and he thought he should test him out around other dogs before getting another one..because a dog park is a place to do that..tells me I'm over reacting and to let dogs be dogs..by the expression on my boyfriends face when I got home, he's lucky I was alone.
Thankfully Gaia's a trooper, she didn't bat an eye when the vet was cleaning her cut and is running around the house like nothing is wrong. Last weekend she breaks her toenail and now this..it's been a rough couple of weeks for her.
We'll stick to fields and training class, I can't handle going thru that again.
