This morning a German Shepherd-Chow broke loose from his chain and attacked me. The physical damage isn’t so bad; just puncture wounds, scratches and some deep bruising. The psychological damage is worse. The dog’s owner was horrified and has decided that they need to get rid of the dog because they can’t keep it safely contained and it has become aggressive towards strangers. The family was crying, I was crying, what a mess. Luckily the dog’s records are all up to date so I do not need to be concerned about rabies. The owner felt so bad that he is going to buy me pepper spray and a holster. Dark day. No running, Icing my leg and trying to heal emotionally.
