    People, keep your dog on a leash!!!

    We were just attacked by a dog at the campground. We were out walking Apollo, it was dark out, and this dog came out of nowhere trying to get at him. I kept trying to fend the dog off and keep between him and Apollo, Monello was trying to fend him off, his owner comes rolling out and starts yelling AT US!!, Monello and I are screaming at her to get her effing dog, she's standing there yelling like an idiot - "he's friendly, he's friendly!" No, bitch, he's not freaking friendly when he's attacking my dog and you won't pull him off.

    I kicked the dog in the side and he backed off - it was chaos so I don't really remember exactly but after exchanging some words with the owner she got the dog under control and we left. Met up with one of the campground workers who was rolling around and told him what happened. He said he couldn't really do anything about it if we didn't know what lot number it was - which we didn't because there was a lot going on and all we wanted at that point was to get away from that nut and her dog. Another worker heard the commotion so we told them what had happened, too. Tomorrow I'll report it at the main office.

    Now, the dog was a yellow lab looking pooch, so he may very well be friendly under other circumstances - but when he comes at me and my dog and won't back off, that's that. Not to mention dogs aren't supposed to be off leash EVER unless they're in the dog park.

    Now, this incident could have ended much differently. Her dog could have injured me or Monello or Apollo (we're all fine). But let's pretend he is just curious - except for the part where he ran at us and practically mauled me trying to get to Apollo, but let's pretend. Dog comes at me in the dark, I have a taser or even a gun. Bye doggie! And that would be the owner's fault for not controlling her animal.

    I'll go to the office tomorrow and report it. Not sure if I should call the police, an even then I can only give a general area of where their RV is and not the specific spot. Doubtful they'll go door to door and search for the dog. I'm really upset about this.

    PEOPLE, KEEP YOUR FREAKING DOG ON A LEASH.

    Even if you think he's friendly, other people don't know that. And if he attacks someone or their pet and they put him down, IT'S YOUR FAULT.

    Oh my goodness. I am sure that scared you. Poor sweet Apollo. In our new home, and there are leash laws, we have a split rail fence adjoing 6 neighbors. We were used to 5 acres in off the road in
    Calvert in the woods. When Daisy goes out, there is one dog that is trying to tear the fence down to get to her. It makes me fearful, and never want to let her out, but that is not normal. It doesn't matter if you are traveling, or staying at home. There are always risks. Happy travels. I love reading about them.

    I bet it was part pit.
    Don’t take criticism from someone you wouldn’t take advice from.

    yeah, it sucks for the dog to have such stupid owners. Happened to me at a dog park a few years ago. I was there, early on my Friday off, with my gsd. and this woman had a lab..."friendly" but not so to my dog. She refused to leave, even though I was there first (nobody else was there), there were three other fenced areas for dogs. It was just her and I. She just laughed when her lab showed aggression towards my dog. "he's just playing". uh, don't think so, esp when it was freaking both me and my dog out.

    I just went to the other area. Some people shouldn't own pets. Sorry for the bad experience, glad everyone is ok.

    Some people are a-holes and shouldn't be pet owners.

    I’m stressed over this entire thing; there I was walking and sniffing stuff when out of nowhere WOOF! This mean beastie starts bullying me. All the two legged hairless things start yelling and I’m airplaning at the end of my neck rope.



    This ordeal is going in my journal…
    I’m looking for the man that shot my paw…
