I still do not understand how someone posts here using a TV remote (you might have thought I was being facetious earlier) - you must have one of those "Smart" TVs
:hmm:

mentioned that in my earliest cantina posts

The wanderful deluge is now on! :p

Everyone have a very safe and happy Memorial Day Weekend. Watch the weather, it seems to have gone quite insane around here where I live. Remember all of those men and women past, present, and future walking point and making all kinds of sacrifices to serve our country. A very humble thank you to one and all.

Happy Tuesday!

Our luck of having things break continues. My downstairs tv took a poop on Sunday. Haven't even had it that long, 3 years maybe! Ugh.

Our weekend was nice. Spent a lot of time outside. Sat in my swing and read. Had the baby here a while, the kids took RJ and Sage to see Aladdin. Spencer was one unhappy boy though! He cried almost the whole 3 hours! This grandma most definitely did NOT have the "touch" on Saturday. ;)

Started raining yesterday and not supposed to stop until later today. Not good news for all the people who had flooded basements last week after the snow. But thankful it is just rain and not any of the severe stuff other parts are getting.

Have a great day, everyone! Big hugs and positive vibes to all! :love_heart:

On Sunday, my dog was attacked by a Pit Bull mix breed on my property. I had come home from lunch with my Mom, let Pearl out on the lead, and ran inside to change into some grubbing clothes so I could play with the dog, and dig in some dirt. Just as I zipped my pants, I heard the awfulest scream from my dog that I've ever heard. I ran out the back door, and saw the other dog with its mouth around Pearl's entire upper body, flinging her around like a wet rag. The other dog's owner was there as quickly as I was, and he struggled to get his dog to let Pearl go. My guess is that it took about three minutes to get the dog to let go....longest most awful three minutes of my life. When I saw her laying on the ground, I thought she was dead.....she was so small and so still. Those of you that have been here a while and have seen the photos of Pearl know that she small.....about 14 pounds of Jack Russell Chihuahua. Obviously no match for an 85 pound Pit Bull. I was so terrified. The Pit's owner did try to do the right thing. He was very apologetic, drove me and Pearl to the emergency pet clinic, waited the 5 plus hours it took to patch Pearl up, and paid the total cost. I do believe he is sincerely sorry, and while I am appreciative, I was a little pissed off that he begged me not to report the incident to animal control.....said his dog has never behaved like that before and is registered as an emotional support service pet.......I had to be nice, because we were at the pet clinic, and he was footing the bill, and I didn't have a ride back home, and didn't even bring my purse or cell phone. I'm calling BS on the service pet never behaved like that before story. The good news is that Pearl is going to be okay. She has a whole bunch of stitches and is wearing the cone of shame, and somehow lost most of her front teeth.....I'm secretly hoping that she got a good bite or two in..... I'm also very thankful that the Munchkin was at her dad's house. As traumatic as the scene was for me, it would have devastated her. When Munchkin came home yesterday, Pearl sat up, smiled and barked for the first time since she was hurt.......I swear, my girl is magic.

What an traumatic experience. Thank ful Pearl is ok. Many healing vibes and prayers to St. Francis. Calming vibes for you too.
At least he paid for all the vet bills. Can you privately ck to see if the dog is really registered as an emotional support service pet? That might provide some insight as to whether he was handing you a line or not. Be watchful. So so sorry Pearl and you had to go through this.

Oh my gosh! That had to be terrifying for everyone but so glad to hear that Pearl will be okay. It could have been so much worse. I'd echo what Spidey said about checking to verify his story about being an emotional support dog. Do they live near to you that you might have to worry about this happening again?

Oh no!! So glad Pearl is healing.

Thankful the other dog's owner did the right thing but you are right to be suspicious. I do not know if there is training involved for emotional support animals but seems as though there should be, and as such, an animal would not behave that way. Was the other dog all up to date on vaccinations?

Healing vibes for Pearl. Big hugs for you.

This is terrible! Pitbulls are very scary creatures. Yes, yes, people who own them say they are the most gentle things and loving. And they probably are to them. But they don't play well with others. Or that has been my experience with them.

Hopefully this was an eye opener for this owner to realize this and he will take precautions from now on. Sounds like a muzzle is in order.

Just had a thought re: reporting the "service" dog. It may be out of Sunny's hands. Wouldn't the vet that treated Pearl be required to file a report re: what caused her injuries?

Did not want dog reported, just to have Sundrop ck into his story being true. State laws vary and would "assume" since animal to animal might not need to be reported.
