    Default Bad Day at the Beach Today

    Today we took our dogs to the dog beach and there most dogs run off leash, i have mine on a leash cuz he doesn't stay. Dogs come up and sniff each other all the time, this big german shephard came up and launched at Rex's face, had her jaws clamped over Rex's face. Rex was yelping, and my husband and the owner were trying to umclamp the dog's mouth, my poor dog was so scared he pooed himself. They managed to umclamp the dogs mouth but then the owner let his dog go and she did it again. They got her off him again and my husband told him to control his dog, and he told us to calm down!!! his dog just tried to suffocate my dog and he wants us to calm down. We checked over Rex and he had no bite marks, he was okay, but shaken up, poor thing. Some people who saw what happened came up to see if he was okay, this one lady was bawling her eyes out. It was pretty bad scene. The owner said it was the first time it happend but im not sure about that. Rex was walking along, didn't even look at the dog or bark, the dog just launched at him. He's okay anyways. I little sore on top of his neck. It's a little red but no blood or piercing or anything. What a crap day! We just went straight home.

    Thats terrible.
    But sometimes dogs are unpredictable. Lady has had a go at other dogs without warning.
    Except how irresponsible to let his dog do it again!
    Poor Rex. What breed is he?

    Rex is a cattle cross mini foxi. Yeah dogs are unpredictable, i hope the guy learns from this and gets a mussle or put her on a lead. It was just really scary.

    Lucky i was carrying the two little puppies, don't think they would have survived being so small. I was carrying them cuz well Leila is just really small and Tedd was walking next to us off the lead about a min before, but, and this was super cute, ran in front of me, sat down and put his paw up for me to pick him up.

    I go to a lot of off leash areas with my crew and the fosters. Can I give you some advise? Take a water spray or a water pistol with you.....seriously!! A burst of water when least expected can really throw the culprit into a (safe) spin.

    Poor Noah has spent his life trying to work out what the ???? where did that water come from????

    I also use the water spray for cat chasing fosters, door scratching fosters, in fact anything negative where I need to break focus quick smart.

    Poor Rex! Hope he recovers quickly from his ordeal, and that you recover too! Fingers crossed Rex doesn't suffer any long term trauma from it.

    Hugs to you all.
