I just wanted to share a story with people and show how even the friendliest dog can hurt a person when it's hurt and to perhaps get some good ideas on how to handle that sort of thing next time.
Like your and Onyx's comment about using a towel - I will definitely remember that for future reference.

julie87 I understood Mooch perfectly. Some people here just love to start drama that's all. Glad everyone is safe!

jocoyn Mooch, you are all good. I think most "got it" and appreciate the advice/reminder. It is sometimes hard to remember to quickly size up the scene and manage your own danger first.

I have had my own dogs hurt and rushed in blindly and, thankfully, did not get bit but my husband did once. When it was an unknown dog in the street, hit by a car, we quickly fashioned a muzzle out of a nylon lead.

Angelina03 Don't worry about it Mooch. Most of us understood what you meant. And there is nothing wrong with clarifying to those who didn't. It's not fighting. Just don't get caught up in the back-and-forth of it. It's not worth it.

Even at that, it was a defensive/reaction bite- by no means an attack bite. Or would you think that your guy is so weak that his bite can't puncture human skin?
C'mon give the poor dog a break - it certainly doesn't mean that he is in danger from your dog.
This sounds to me like you thought that I was complaining or concerned about my dog attacking us and that my hubby was in danger.

The fact that you pointed out it WASN'T an attack bite to me read like you were telling me that because you had gathered from reading my original post that I was complaining that my dog had done something wrong.
I pointed out in my original post that I well understood WHY the dog reacted the way he did. ( maybe that's not how my post read to other people )

If that wasn't how you meant it I apologise, sometimes written words don't come across like something would in a conversation.
Obviously you just wanted to point out that the dog hadn't done anything wrong (which I'm aware of) so I'm sorry.
To me reading what you wrote sounded like you hadn't quite read the whole original post and the 2nd post I made and that you were having a go at me for blaming my dog.

Oh well never mind all this now, I like this forum, there's some good advise here and I don't want to fight with people.

Did you think (assume?) that I said that you said that?

Perhaps read my post a little more carefully before YOU comment on it. Where did I say that you said the your dog attacked you? I thought I said it wasn't an attack bite? Didn't I say that?

You mean that I should know what you meant! Not what you said?
If you meant something different than that - maybe you could please explain "properly" - what do you really mean by that word this time?

That is great!

GSD LVR My major bit me once when he was being aggressive with the neighbors dog through the fence.

I corrected him and let him know that he was wrong and he has never done it again.
