My poor dog!

Tuesday, December 11, 2012

Cooper was attacked again on our evening walk tonight. That is twice in about a week. I am afraid his tail might be dislocated or broken. The other dog chomped down on his tail and wouldn't let go, even when I picked Cooper up. I think I am more traumatized than Cooper is though. I was wishing for a return to a calmer dog, but I didn't want it to happen this way! There is no blood and he isn't whimpering, but he doesn't want to leave my lap. I am taking him to the vet tomorrow to have him checked out, and probably get his tail x-rayed. I have the contact information from the other owner and I noted the address. I am just really upset. Borderline tears.

Other than that it was a good day today, but that pretty much ruined it. Poor Cooper!

    I'm so sorry to hear about little Cooper getting hurt. Shame on the other dog! I hope if there is a problem with his tail, it can be fixed!

    Poor Cooper! I hope he's okay and that the other dog's owner pays for your vet bills - it's the least they can do.

    Poor little Cooper, I hope nothing serious happened to him from that. That is horrible that you and your pup have been attacked like that.

    Hope Cooper is okay. Good you got the owners info so you can report the aggressive dog to the police and cover any vet bills if needed.

    Maggie is doing okay after yesterday. It sure was upsetting to see her hurt.

    Poor little guy. I hope he's ok. When I was little my cocker spaniel was attacked by a newfoundlander. It was terrifying.

    Are you going to take him to the vet?

    Ok - entering trainer mode. You need to spend NORMAL time with him. Be calm and don't act like it is a big deal. He is ok, so lovin' yes but don't poor baby him. Let him know he is ok.

    Now, as long as he is physically ok, he needs to walk. Don't let him hide but don't take him need the place of attack. He needs to get out and experience things. Try to keep him on as normal of a schedule as possible!

    So very sorry about Cooper :(( I hate hearing about things like this :(( At least the other owner is owning up to his reponsibility. Was this other dog on a leash?
    I hope Cooper's tail isn't broken, doesn't sound like it if he isn't whimpering. It doesn't sound like you have the best place to walk, getting two attacks in only a week? Scary. You may have to cross to the other side of the street if you see another dog coming for future safety.

    Oh no! That is awful. I think I would have gone ape-sh%t on the other dog owner. I hope you present them with your vet bill.

    So sorry! Hope Cooper is OK!

    I'm so sorry that you had to go through that with your dear Cooper! Truly a no-no! Those things should never happen!! Hopefully the Vet will do wonders for Cooper and you too! I'll be thinking of you both tomorrow! Our doggies are so precious!

    I don't understand owners letting their dogs run loose to bother or hurt anyone! Poor Cooper! His confidence must be severely damaged! I hope the owner of that dog volunteered to pay the vet bill! Probably not, but it is what they should have done. Hope you get good news tomorrow.

    I am glad the other dog went for his tail if there is anything positive in this experience. I always get freaked out on dog attacks. What is this aggressive dog doing out?

    Cooper is a great name, sounds like a great dog.
