- Wedding: December 2015
For all of you judging me, my dog weighs over 70 lbs!!! How would expect me to pick her up & take off running to my house?! She got away as fast as she could from me…because she knew the house was her safe place…everything happened SO fast! And it was also getting pretty dark, so I couldn’t see 100%, clear as day! And for those coming down on my husband because he would shoot a dog who was ATTACKING him, let me know how things work out for you, when you’re attacked & have no way to defend yourself…you will wish you had! I’m glad y’all know exactly what you would have done, given you weren’t even there! And I’ll add again that the neighbkr was in FULL support of my husband using any means necessary to protect himself, so it wasn’t like the owner didn’t have a clue. He walked out & saw the dog biting & attacking my husband.
Layla is an indoor dog, 99% of the time…she only goes out to go potty & stretch her legs every now & then…another reason I wanted to take her on a walk, since she hadn’t been out in so long. With us being new to the area, we are still trying to get things set in place.
Thank you to those who understand my heart break and why I’m such an emotional mess today! I haven’t been on this forum in a while & I realize why. People want to judge me and my husband, when I’m having empathy towards my neighbors, when most people would be irate they that hadn’t handled this dog properly a long time ago & just let it run freely, KNOWING it had attacked other people & animals. We just moved in, in December, so we are still learning the area & our neighbors. That’s why he went over to their house, he was trying to be nice and deliver a package that belonged to them, that had been mistakenly delivered to our house. He never ever went over with the intention of getting attacked or possibly needing to draw his gun to shoot their dog! That thought never ever crossed his mind!
Thank you to those who appreciate my husband’s service…it is not an easy job & it’s not easy being the wife of a police officer either. …And yes, I am pro-gun because I firmly believe in having the ability to protect myself and my family, at all costs!
I came here today, after being off the forum for a while, to let my heart out & express how much of an emotional mess I was, for ALL parties involved….just to get judged?! I’m glad that so many think highly of yourself. For me, I’m going to my neighbors house, to give them a sympathy card, a Willow Tree Angel, & an ornament for them to put a picture of their dog in.
I pray none of you, your family, or your animals get attacked. To say it is traumatizing is an understatement.
