War Stories

21 Jan 2007, Subang

Image Hosted by ‘Down n out …’

Hd a very, very close call today. Was hving my usual rumble n grumble on d field with me JRT mates, Oreo n Russell. My owner decided dat v were getting too rough n lifted me off d ground with my leash. Out of nowhere, dis enormous Rottweiler/St Bernard mix lunged n chomped into my right shoulder. Definitely 1 of d largest n solidly built dogs I’ve ever seen in my life n it’s weight alone cld hv flattened me.

My other owner swiftly took hold of me n began kicking away at d giant mutt’s throat n jaw. Cld feel d tearing of skin n flesh as d mutt tugged even harder n seemed intent on not letting go. Was like a tug-o-war match, only problem is I was d rope … thot dat I was a real goner den, either dat or I wld end up with 1 leg longer den d other. Was only after 4 -5 neat kicks by my owner dat he managed 2 dislodge my arm from d vice like grip.

Next thing I knew I was back in my owner’s arms n cld tell from her distraught look n constant tears dat dis was serious. I hd a deep long gash all round my shoulder arm n a layer of skin was spliced opened. Cld already c blood n all dat icky stuff thru d gash. I managed a whimper as I looked forlornly at her as she desperately struggled 2 hold d torn bits together 2 prevent any further tearing n bleeding.

....‘I hd a bad day …’

Just made it 2 d vet b4 dey closed n was already fearing d worst. Didn’t know wat 2 think or say, so didnt say much as I nestled on my owner’s thigh. My owners’ tried 2 keep calm n comfort me but cld tell dat dey were really troubled. So I kept quiet not wanting 2 make d situation even worse.

Doc mentioned dat it was an extensive wound but thankfully, no damage 2 vein, muscle or bone. Went thru an hr’s surgery, received 15 stitches all round n stayed d nite at d clinic. Am walking around with a shaved armpit as a result, looks weird but I cn live with dat. Also hv 2 wear d ridiculous ‘upside down hat’ 2 prevent scratching. Well there goes my dog show aspirations n modeling career. Cld hv bn much worst tho’ … n as long as I dun hv 2 gv up running n my ball, dats all dat really matters.

It’s time for healing n will b out of action for 2 - 3 weeks … dun hold ur breath coz I’ll b back in d old groove soon, as agile n fast as b4. Hv 2 thank my owners 4 being there n feel sorry 4 giving dem untold heartache from d incident. I’ll b fine guys, no worries … u cant keep a good JRT down 4 long. Me mates mentioned dat I must hv bn quite brave seeing how I hardly made a sound or complained during d entire ordeal, even ven being torn

Think I’ve used up 1/3 of my 9 lives, some say it only applies 2 cats … well it hs worked well 4 me up 2 now, so I’m not gonna stop believing in it. Now wat’s an injured dog supposed 2 do for d next few weeks being quarantined indoors. Hah, will hv 2 dig up my owner’s stash of X-Men comics 2 keep me entertained den.

Oh my my...doesn't look pleasant at all. Just look at that sad face, I've never seen the top Groovy dog with that kinda face be4. He's always happy, full of joy & there's alwayz a disco beat in his head that makes every inch of his body grooving.

Wow, what kinda dog is that! Must be huge...He could easily carry him away with his strong jaws. What did the owner of the rottie mix do?

Well, I hope Groovy will heal back soon which I have no doubt & will go back to his grooving self!

Oh wow!! So sorry to hear bout the chomping Groovy received. Cant imagine what I would do if Scruffy got bitten like that. Scruffy being the friendly dog that he is has had many close calls but thankfully he has managed to escape unscath except for maybe a few scratches. But the thing is he never learns. He thinks all dogs are friendly.

Scruffy and I are praying for Groovy's swift recovery.

Poor Groovy!
Your oouwwieeee looks so painful. We're so sorry that mean doggie attacked you from nowhere. What is wrong with him? Did his owners even say anything or offer to pay vet bills?? That doggie needs some obedience classes, hmmmph. We hope you have a speedy recovery so you can get back to playing again pal!
Luv & Wirey Healing Hugs!

Hope that you are doing ok.

Anyway, enjoy that e-collar. I know that it makes a great amplifier. Once you bark once, your bark will be heard many moons away. ;)

Oh my goodness!

Just read about your mishap Groovy! Get well soon...

The owner of the doggie that did this to you should be punished. Having a big dog means you MUST be able to control your dog, esp if it's aggressive!

Take mega doses of Vitamin C to help the tissue heal. Seriously... just ordinary human Vitamin c will do. Take up to 3000mgs a day. It works... at leats until you're all better...

big hug from Cleo...
