Retiring

Sadly my mommy has decided to start retiring me to home service only. Back in December, right before christmas, I was attached while I was at a playgroup at a dog facility. Sophie and I were playing nicely with the others and having fun when a lady showed up with a dog that wasn't too nice when he others went up to sniff her. Instead of leaving the lady dragged her dog to the corner of the room and let it continue to growl and become agitated. Suddenly I was just standing there looking at my mommy when the dog came out of no where and tackled me from behind. She latched onto my leg and refused to let go. My mommy and I were both terrified. At first it didn't look like I was hurt but then when my mommy tried to get me up to go to the vet, I was too sore to get up. She ended up carrying me to the car and then into the vet. When she got in the vets she finally saw my wounds which were hiding in my fluff. The vets had to sedate me and stitch up multiple bite wounds. One had to have a drain. That one took 4 weeks to heal entirely. I had to wear a stupid cone to prevent me from licking myself. It was not fun at all.

So now I'm having a hard time focusing when I'm around other dogs I don't know. I don't want to take my eyes off them. Sophie has jumped on me a few time when I was sleeping deeply and I woke up snarling and growling at her thinking I was going to be attacked again. Sorry Sophie, you need to stop sneaking up on me.

So mommy has decided it is in both of our best interests to retire my to home duty. It is for the safety of us both. When I'm distracted I can't be focusing on helping her. Sophie is now going with her most of the time and learning to work for my mommy. I'm soooo jealous. If I could just ignore those other dogs but I don't want to be attacked again.
