Richie went into hump like a demon mode and then whinge mode when he wasn’t allowed to hump like a demon, I did feel for the boy until I had enough so I decided to take him for a wander down our local recreation ground to give him, Ronnii and me a break from all the hullabulloo. All was going well we were ambling around with the place to ourselves when all of a sudden a mad streak came belting towards us and promptly grabbed his leg in its mouth. A Staffie had come out of nowhere without a lead and had taken a dislike to my boy. I struggled to get this blooming dog off of him with the owner wandering over and thinking the whole situation was rather funny and doing nothing to help. I finally managed to get the thing off but the blasted dog kept coming and coming snarling and snapping and the owner just continued to laugh until I took matters into my own hands and punched his dog smartly on the nose. At which point he stopped laughing and went to hit me so I punched him smartly on the nose too, grabbed Richie into my arms and ran like hell. Out of the red round to my friends house where I promptly turned into a gibbering wreck. Luckily Richie was fine after a good check of him and I think he was just a bit stunned and I was somewhat shell shocked. I have never hit a dog before and do feel awful about it but I don’t feel bad about hitting the ‘man’ and I use that word loosely to describe the male person in a baseball cap and a hoodie. What on earth he though of this middle aged woman in sensible boots lamping one on the nose I don’t know nor do I care either. It is about time all dog owners be responsible for their dogs behaviour and for what comes out of their dogs rear ends. We have two dogs and we are responsible for what goes in their bellies and for what comes out and we dutifully pick up after them so why can’t others ? It is beyond me what goes on in some dog owners minds .
Onto Ronnii now she went to the dog-tor this evening to see if she could have a hormone jab to end her season and save Richie anymore stress but Anthony ( The Vet ) said she only has about another five days left and it takes that long for the jab to work so it is not worth it. She will be spayed in April ! He said all we can do is either get Richie a holiday somewhere or put up with……………. so put up with it we will but I am going to be handing over to my dear OH as soon as he walks through the door each evening poor man.
Well at least I can say life is never dull here……LOL
