STORY TIME: Okay soooo this week has been a very frustrating week with my dogs on their walks. I don't live near any secluded trails to walk my dogs so I usually walk them between my neighborhood and one adjacent to mine if not, the duck pond.
It all started on Wednesday morning. The wife & I are walking the dogs & as we are walking down the road, I see a little Chihuahua down the road but on the other side of the street. I thought luckily he is past our next turn & he won't see us. WRONG! As soon as we are turning left, he turns around with his big bug eyes and starts yapping as he struts across street. Then as we look back to see how close he is to us, we see a Malamute/Husky looking dog. My wife gives me that
look lol. I said do you want to chase them away or control our dogs because the are getting really close at that point. She chose to chase them away. So they wander into someone's yard so we are like cool it's over.....WRONG!!
As the street we are on curves left, we see an older woman on the sidewalk with a kid and a wiener dog. I smartly cross the street with Cookie & Bear. As we are in the middle of the street, her dog & our dogs are trying to approach each other. I controlled my dogs...all of a sudden
She drops the leash & now there is a loose wiener
I'm like lady get your
. My dogs are looking at the wiener dog as if he had a bun on his stomach & mustard, ketchup & relish on his back
. I had to basically grab both dogs' collar & stand them up on their hind legs so they couldn't see if this dog tasted like an Oscar Myer hot dog lol. The kid final chased down the wiener because the lady just stood on the sidewalk & did nothing
. We make it home with 0 K.I.A.
FastForward to Friday. I'm walking Bear down the exact same street. I see a teenage boy go to his car across the street from his house. No biggy. Apparently his little brother followed him to the door & wanted to see what he was doing. As he is standing there with the front door open...BAM!! Out comes 2 JRT
towards me & Bear
. I'm like
way to go kid. 1 of the JRTs got close enough for Bear to smack him upside his head with his paw. That 1 went back in the yard & the teen grabbed the 2nd as he was trying to charge at us again. Owners that cant control their pets need to be
I'm working on a new walk route right now.
So my question out of this is...If someone's dog was to attack my dog,...How would that go legally?
Say the JRT if Bear would've seriously hurt him or killed him? I can honestly say being a pit bull owner in the city it feels like everyone is against you. I imagine me in court & the judge is like" Yes I know your dog was attacked BUT, it's a pit bull."
