We were at a park here in Kettering, watching Nick play tennis. Gus went to sniff a dog in a neighboring yard through a picket fence, and the dog chomped down on his nose/top jaw. He has 4 holes in the top of his nose, one on the roof of his mouth, and a big cut on his right lip. :( I had to pry the other dog's mouth open to get him off of Gus, and the noise Gus was making was sooo terrible. I feel like such a bad mom, because I stopped watching them for like, 10 seconds! We went to ask if their dog was up-to-date on vaccinations. They were (thank goodness), but she didn't seem too concerned about the actual biting. She said "sorry", but it wasn't that heartfelt (or at least I didn't feel it was, but I'm a concerned mama). She said her dogs often run up and down the fences, barking. I should have told her that is a dominant/aggressive behavior, but I didn't. All I know is that I hope I never have to hear the sound that Gus was making ever again. It is seared into my memory forever.
Why do my dogs get attacked all the time???
