So I was walking my APBT
puppy this morning as per usual we were just doing laps around the block. My dog is quite content and is just starting to catch on to "Heel" and staying on the sidewalk beside me. Anyway I come around the corner and see that there are a couple of kids up the way who get excited and want to see the puppy (the older sister- though still young scolds her saying not to approach strange dogs) so the two remain sitting on the step and playing with there chalk- the house door is open.
As I go to pass the house a cat runs out and latches all four sets of claws into my dog, cutting open her face just below her eye. I kick the cat off my pup, only to have it come back and try the same thing again. This time I give the cat a good ol' soccer kick and it flies several feet back into the yard. At this point the mother runs outside screaming that I was swearing in front of her kids, and blaming me and my puppy for the confrontation, (last I checked sidewalks were public property
). Its ridiculous to think that my puppy would be put down if it ever attacked a strangers pet like that- but this cat just gets cottled and will continue to roam free without consequence.
... just my bit of excitement for the morning.
