So to recap my day our malti-poo dog aka Sanders (8 lb.) was attacked by our blue heeler mix breed (the all american mutt breed) aka Sandy (at least 30 lb.). Sanders was cornered behind the AC cube outside when he went out to do business by Sandy when we went out to see what was going on with all the dogs going mad. We had to pull sanders away from her because she wouldn't stop biting him when we were trying to get her off of him. We immediately brought the sander mander inside and checked him out and found that the cuts should be looked by a vet because one might could use a stitch. We took him to our local vet asap. He now has a drain in his abdomen and stitches plus some open bite wounds. He has plenty of pain meds so absolutely no pain for him right now and gets the drain out monday. He has eaten some pizza and gotten up for very short periods of time but mostly laid down not moving a muscle. We also have a yorky-poo that thinks he and sanders are brothers that has been watching him all afternoon right beside him and even growled at our lab when he sniffed sanders. Max the yorky poo has been in a lot of distress over the whole attack and is really protective over sanders right now.
We no longer have Sandy since we have countless ways to have an even worse outcome for instance I have a 3lb. Chihuahua(who was also outside at the time and loved to bark right in her face!), an indoor outdoor cat, an almost 2 yo child...... Thank the lord they were not attacked. Sandy was so sweet but today was so weird I don't know what went on with her but there are so many nice sweet dogs like sanders that you just can't have the aggression. Sanders seems to be doing okay right now and we are nursing him along. Well that's my day in a nutshell.
