I am getting so frustrated. Heres the back story. Neighbour has a little foo foo shih tzu. This dog was fine with my dog until the owner had her first baby then it turned mean towards my dog for some reason (and a few other neighbouring dogs). This dog attacked Lincoln (Lincoln was leashed, the shih tzu was not) on city property once. Fine, I deal with it, wounds heal. The second time it happened (no skin was broken) I am starting to get pissy. Third time happened, skin was broken. I went home so upset I was in tears. Owner stops me on my walk the next day. Heres how the conversation went
Owner- Oh, I am so sorry she did this to your dog how is he?
Me- Hes fine, thanks. Please, make sure she does not do it to mine or another dog again there some owners in the neighbourhood who would allow their dogs to kill yours"
Owner- Oh, I am sorry, We are trying to control this, its something new that started after we had the baby"
Me- Next time, im going to have to report it to the spca because I need to protect my dog in case my grip slips or he gets out of my control and does damage to yours
Owner- Okay, I understand it will not happen again
Whatever. Shes not right in the head or something she just talks weird about stupid irrelevant things. Fast forwards a couple months. I am walking with a witness. Her dog attacks mine again. This is number 4. Breaks skin. I go home, get witness statement and take pics of his wounds.
Decided for some reason to not stir the pot because the husband is a firemen and cops and firemen are tight here. Number 5 happens. I had enough. Called the spca, told them 4 times do NOT give her a ticket just please caution her of the city by law code about having your dog off leash and the result of it if her off leash dog was attacked by my or anyone elses leashed dog. They leave and go speak to her im sure since theres nothing but air in her head it went in and our the other ear.
Fast forward. Every time I walk by ( I always walk on the other side of the road now). She always shouts profanities at me saying my dog is terrified of hers and that I am a cry baby and cannot defend myself
So I ignore it as to not feed into it. She drives by me all the time, flips me the finger and I wave back politely because I know it irritates her when I dont retaliate back.
This past summer, I was walking Lincoln. She has her now 3 year old daughter walking this dog on a flexi leash (which is not acceptable under the code needs to be 6 feet). She sees me, quickly grabs her dogs leash. Her dog starts flying at Lincoln, she lets it go to the end of its 16 foot flexi, it starts to nip at Lincoln. Meanwhile, my dog is cujo here all teeth including his back ones are out, his ears are pinned back, his slobering, hair is up and hes barking from deep within. Im trying to maintain my dog on a 6 foot leash who wants to eat her little dog and what does she do? She THROWS HER DAUGHTER IN BETWEEN MY DOG AND HERS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!. Im like ***? If my dog bites your kid im not feeling sorry in the least but obviously I wont let that happen.
Fast forward to tonight. Pass her again (I generally walk past her house during the day when shes usually working) but tonight I was to lazy to take him around the long way. She laughs, gives her dog the 16 foot flexi and its attacking Lincolns legs!!!!!!!!!!! I try to walk away and she follows me!!!! Like, what does she want me to do drop my dogs leash so he can take care of the situation himself???? Trust me lady if my dog was terrified of your foo foo he would NOT be acting like this right now. Like does she not understand if my dog ever got a hold of hers it would take one hard bite and that would be it????
Why are people so stupid???? They just do not get it. I have no idea if the husband knows the full scenario or if hes just getting her side. Im just waiting for her dog to do this to my neighbours Golden because that dog will attack back and the owner will allow it and there will be no more foo foo left!
Sorry, I needed to rant. I just do not get people sometimes. I own a small dog and she knows she better never act like that! Some people were handed the short end of the stick. She acts like she was thrown from the stupid tree and hit every single branch on the way down
