my birthday was yesterday..
It wasn't a nice one :o(
First we all were in bed til about 4pm, cause mom was sick. Well, that was ok since we got to snuggle a lot.
Then mom got herself ready and we went for a walk for the ladies. On the way Jojo got attacked by a nasty and mean dog. She seems ok, but might have hurt her bad leg again. We got to wait and see. Mom will go see the dogs owner today - she was out with the dog walker - and tell them what happened. It was an awful fight this dog put on and I witnessed it. I screamed and was so scared about Jojo. Mom was desperate, she cried, because I just got over the attack several months ago. Jojo was attacked, too.
I had a hard time calming down. Mom called dad, who came home right away. He was really pissed, too..
At some point I calmed down, Jojo shook it off. She seemed ok. Just her leg, but she might just be sore.
Dad, mom and I decided to go to one of my favorite areas in the city to see how I was doing. The girls staid home and we took off.
First we went to our cafe. On the way we met several dogs. Mom gave me a jackpot, enormous, huge treat for every dog we passed. We decided to ignore all dogs we meet. Then we spent some time at the cafe. I was really good.
On the walk after the cafe visit, we met many, many dogs, I got jackpots for them all. That was neat :) We even went to my pet store!!
I got birthday treats and there were many dogs in the store. Mom did some group treat games and have me say hi to them. All cool :o) One dog made me feel a bit uncomfortable, but after I sniffed it and mom told me to come and sit, I was fine.
We bought food, too!
Then we went back home. It was a great evening walk and I am glad we did it. All those jackpots :D yum*
Today we will go back to our daily routine and do all the fun stuff, meet up with our pal.
Looking forward. I am sure this time I am just fine. Mom and dad handled it differently, with more confidence. That was a wise choice. I trust mom and dad and if they say that that's how we do it, then that's how we do it.
The dog show is coming up tomorrow and I will meet up with several of our SD friends and some non SD friends. That is awesome. I have never been to the dog show, but to the rodeo and stock show!
I will let you know how it was :o)
Thank you all for your birthday wishes..

I am so SO sorry that happened. Hold and snuggle Jojo for us too.
That you did SO well after is a testement to how your Mum(and Dad) have put SO much time into all of you to give you confidence and strength.
SO hoping that JoJo is going to "just be sore" and is going to be ok.
As to the owners.. I hope that meeting goes well.. but not holding my breath on that.
I know Hershey's mum is going to the Dog Show.
Hope that your Dad will have some celebration as it was HIS birthday yesterday as well.
You are all so loved.. and from after too.
What kind of dog walker lets a dog they're walking attack another dog?
We avoid other dogs-- cross the road, whatever... both Whit and I have been attacked in the past and we just figure it is best to avoid other dogs if possible.
We had fun at the Dog Parade during Fiesta in San Antonio last year, though, and that was tons of dogs! We liked meeting Ebby and Ceeley.... one pitbull tried to sniff me, though, and I let out a bark. I'm not a fan of pit bulls, because that is the kind of dog that attacked me in my front yard.
Hope JoJo is going to be okay... sending her lots of POTP.
Sorry dat happened on your birthday. Sending JoJo POTP!
Oh dears! Hugs to you all!
Poor JoJo! Hope she's ok & I really hope that dog walker had insurance! Being a dog walker myself I can't see how she let that happen. One of my client's dogs is reactive so I have to be on the lookout for other dogs & make sure there is plenty of space. Glad Chief enjoyed the rest of his birthday though. I can't believe he's a year already!! And only a little younger than Tia. Can't believe how fast it all flew by!
