O gee .....This must be a relatively new dog to your family?? As I recall last year you had to put down your old dog.
I'm glad you made it safe and sound. the dog must've been scared to poo when the pet sitter arrived. If the dog didn't know your sitter in defense of the dog I would think the dog was just doing his/her job and protecting the house???
I'm sorry hon. That's rough news to swallow.
Hopefully with God's help you can at least enjoy the girls as they have Easter with Peter Cottontail. Kate te and bonnie are going to be easter bunnies and they're hoppin all over the damn board goin beserk. I'm gonna nab them and take off with all the cadbury eggs and jelly beans.
Don't tell them that tho ok??!!
All joking aside (just tryin to lighten your load) you can't do any more about it then you probably already did tonight. Put the thoughts in a box and put it on a shelf till you get home. Nothing more its the weekend and everyone will be closed.
God Speed! Jesus died for us and I'm going to watch the final episode of The Bible Sunday nite.
Our vet clinic is open on Saturdays. If it isn't closed because it's a holiday weekend then he is getting out down tomorrow. I want to cry. I want to fall to pieces. But I am around people that I can not show emotions around. So I won't.
My dog is gone. He was a good dog overall and I loved him. I know we did the right thing to protect our children and others but it still hurts like hell. I feel like we failed him. He will be buried in our pet cemetery, under a large oak tree by his friend Dixie and other beloved dogs we have lost over the years.
OTW, I'm so sorry. ((((OTW)))). I don't understand, though, if he thought he was just protecting the home? Dogs are my fav. Obviously if you didn't think you could trust him with your kids, I get it, though. I'm just so sorry this happened.
He wasn't just protecting the home. When I finally heard the story he let the pet sitter in okay but when the pet sitter put down his food, he attacked him. This is the 8th person he has bit, including one unprovoked attack on a child. I have 2 small girls who can not protect themselves and we could not continue to risk him attacking one of them.
I am so sorry. Your dog was more then a pet. Your dog was a member of your family and losing a loved one is never easy. Making the decision is difficult as well.
"Heavenly Father, Mother, Jesus, Source of All," please be with OTW and her family as they mourn for their dog that has gone to be with you. Lift up their heavy hearts and heal their sorrows. I ask this in Jesus name. Amen.
