Just over a week ago, Lady and I were on the little-dog side at the dog park when a woman came in with her dog (about 40 pounds).
|I DON'T HAVE A SHOT OF LADY|
IN A FIGHT (FORTUNATELY).
I don't know why, but I said that Lady is an old dog and can't deal with something like that. The woman looked at me oddly, then put the leash on her dog and left.
I checked Lady for blood or injuries. I didn't find anything, but she did lie behind the bench for a while.
I understand that fights happen, but I was appalled to see an old dog (she'll be 15 in October) be in a fight. Still, I was proud of the way she defended herself.
She's seemed fine since, and we've gone to the dog park most days recently (whether I've posted about it or not).
Note: Lady passed on Sept. 17, 2016.
