What am I, lunch??


I am a very lucky and thankful dog today.
Over the weekend I got attacked by an aggressive dog. He tried to eat me!
You can see where his jaws were around my neck.


It was really scary, but it could have been a lot worse and I feel very lucky to be okay. Just a couple of little holes.

Plus I got to go to a vet who gushed about how handsome and amazing I look for my "mature and distinguished" (thanks Gus!) 11 years.


It happened very quickly or else I'm sure I could have scared him away first. :)

I'm a tough guy and I'm feeling pretty good, but I'm milking this for all it's worth - treats, a nice cozy spot on the people bed, and lots of belly rubs.

I can't wear my collar for a little while but I should be fine in about a week.

Oh Lenny...
Thank doggness you are OK!!! Definitely milk this...whatever it takes, you deserve it!

Lots of Licks, Ruby

Gus said...

Oh Lenny! We bet that was a hoooge doggie. Otherwise, you know, a Terrier Rules, because we are such artful fighters. Or, um....well, it might have been one about Teka's size, cause I know how tough she is.

We hope you heal quickly, and watch out for that bad doggie.

Oh, Lenny -- Looking at where those holes are, this dude had a really big mouth.

Were you scared?

Was your mom or dad with you?

How did you escape from those jaws?

We're so glad you're OK.

And yes, you are quite the distinguished looking wire!!

Butchy and Snickers said...

Poor Lenny! We are so sad you were attacked. This is just awful. Be sure to watch those holes very carefully to make sure they heal right. We hope your Mama & Papa weren't bitten at all. How did it happen? Do you need Miss Snickers to be your body guard?? She'll take on any doggie if needed. She's one tough cookie. Thanks so much for the birthday wishes too!!
Luv & Wirey Hugs,

Oh my doggie, Lenny! Look how far apart those tooth holes are! Those were some huge jaws! We are so glad you are alright! We hate to even imagine the circumstances. It makes our Moma feel sick to her tummy even thinking about it.

Take good care of those wounds. Follow the doctor's orders. We hope the orders include lots of extra pats and hugs, scritches and loves. A few extra treats would be a good thing, too.

We're thinking about you, hoping you recover quickly. We hope that other dog learned a lesson. What he did was WRONG!

OH MY DOG! Where were you when this happened? Was it at the dog park? Yikes! Was your mom just like freaking out? I know mine would have been. Geez, I'm really glad you're okay! That dog must have been a monster! Wow, scary! I hope you heal fast and get extra belly rubs and treats.

Oh my dog! I fell so far behind on blogging and just came to visit you. Oh, poor Lenny! I am glad you are ok. I'm sure that dog had to do a sneak attack and not fight fair because no one messes with a terrier! I really hope you are doing ok. Those bites are nasty.

Deetz said...

OMG! Thankfully you are ok! How very scary for your pawents too! If I would have been there I would have attacked the other dog back for picking on you. I am so thankful you are okay.
