…is proud

Posted: 04/28/2008 in life

of my husband for fighting off a pit bull! i’m afraid we haven’t ‘made nice’ with our new neighbors. we’ve been having trouble with their four dogs (pit bull, rottweiler and thinking the other two are pit bull mixes) for almost a year now- since they moved in. today was the fourth time eric has had to go outside and ‘shoo’ them off of our dog. last week he shooed them off and went to the neighbors and gave them a warning, next time we are calling the cops. when i was 9 months pregnant i went outside to get lucy and the pit bull charged me. i was terrified! that didn’t even make me go into labor! lol at the time that part was very frustrating.

today while my husband is trapped by these dogs with our dog behind him (chained up of course, because we are responsible dog owners) and these two stupids in front of him 3 ft away ready to attack. i’m standing inside thinking now what. eric calls me (thanks to cell phones) and tells me to call 911 cuz they decided not to back down. i’m dialing thinking, ok-i have gauze, raw honey, etc. everything i should need for a major bite wound… i’m on the phone with 911 (very frustrated with the operator for having to tell her 3 times where i live and then acting like she can’t send anyone). after a few min i realize they aren’t coming! (we live 2 blocks from the station!) i run outside and get lucy and bring her into the garage hoping then the mean dogs would back down. praying eric can keep them in front of him (he did). lucy was running so hard towards the garage away from them she pulled me so hard i landed flat on my face and then she drug me! she was one scared pup! i raised a weeny!! lol better than the alternative!

the sheriff did come wearing black gloves- his only defense since he’s never in uniform. BROTHER! but thankfully the deputy and the sheriff went over the neighbors and got the dogs inside with a babysitter and tonight is going back when the adults are home and will take care of it they said. we will be following up because at this point it is NOT safe for lizzie and i to be outside. lucy is crying in the garage now- poor thing! i should go give her rescue 5!!!!!!!!!!

    I am so sorry! That sounds aweful. Thank goodness your husband was home! I hope that it gets taken care of, soon.

    how awful! I hate stupid dog owners…how could someone who lives in town own so many dogs of that size? What an awful life those poor dogs must lead! And how terrifying for you…pits and rotts are not nice in nature especially if they are not treated the right way!
