my baby love

A couple of weeks ago Kipling was attacked by another dog. Though she was okay afterwards (minus a couple of bite punctures), the whole thing did make my heart ache. She was her normal self almost immediately afterwards, but it still hurt to know that she was hurt and couldn’t do anything about it. I sure do love my baby girl.

  1. Kipling is a beautiful furry baby:-) It is always traumatic to see your dog being attacked by another dog and many times there is not much we can do. One thing I’ve realized after having dogs of my own and helping pet parents with behavioral issues their furry kids had and that is that the dog recuperates from it faster than us humans. Alex, my almost 12 year old pit mix, was bit about a month ago. It was just a scratch for she moved fast and the other dog was not able to do anything else to her. She was shaken at the beginning. I was worried half to death, but by the end of the day she was fine. I, on the other hand, still had that picture of her getting her with me. What did I do? I let that awful picture go away and now she is fine, interacting with other dogs like nothing happened.

    1. Thank you for your kind and reassuring words. It was a pretty terrifying experience for me (especially because it happened with a dog she has played with many times before). She was pinned down, and I ended up having to throw a chair to get the dog off of her. All the blood scared me the most (that’s how head wounds go I guess…plus it had smeared onto her legs). But she was jumping around for treats immediately afterwards, so I know she was feeling okay, and she is healing just fine. It’s just difficult to see something like that happen to my baby girl, but I need to buck up! ;p

      1. Don’t feel bad about it. I train, board and deal with behavioral issues that many dogs happen to have, and even for me when Alex gets hurt it scares me to death, but she’s taught me to let it go. They do. Dogs are amazing teachers. Yes, it is difficult to see two dogs going at it and I think the worst bites are those they inflict on the ears. When that happened to Alex, just like you, I grabbed a chair and with it I was able to break up the fight and she bled like crazy. We, humans, hold on to the past, and that many times does not allow us to move forward. It’s ok that you feel that way and understandable, but you have to let it go. Also, never allow dogs to play at an intense level that is high because regardless of how long they know each other that is a sure way to a fight.
