dads went to los angeles for christmas and dropped us off with our auntie julie on christmas eve (she's the breeder where we both came from). as soon as julie brought us home and got me out of the car, her daughter's dog came out of no where and grabbed me by the neck and shook me around real good. she tore quite a bit of flesh and made a bunch of bruises and punctures. i had to spend the night at the emergency room and got at least 15 stitches. there's still a drain tube in my neck which should come out tomorrow.
i'm in decent spirits, although i hurt a lot (on pain pills and antibiotics) and my stitches should come out in a couple of weeks. i look a bit like a frankenpuppy right now, but at least i'm alive. luckily, she missed all the vital parts of my neck, barely missing my main artery by a couple of millimeters.
the dog that got me doesn't like mona and i always have to play the 'big brother' role to defend her. this time the other dog didn't even give me a chance. it's not a good way to spend a christmas eve, let me tell you. dad's gonna post some pictures in the next couple of days.
now, we have nothing against any dog breed, and this is just stated as a point of reference: the dog that got me is a pit bull mix, so you know how powerful those jaws can be. we've known this dog for a couple years and she's a bit aggressive, but this is the first attack that we know of.
i have a vet appointment tomorrow, so hopefully i'll get some good news. i'll keep you posted.
