A Cautionary Tale
This story is based on true events though the dogsâ€™ breeds and names have been changed.
I wait â€¦ nothing yet.
Still nothing â€¦.
Hey? Whatâ€™s this tiny thing eh? â€¦
A walking ball of fluff?
I fink they call it a poodle! Whatâ€™s this? Lucy? Lucy the poodle this has got to be a joke! Iâ€™m Spike. Spike the bulldog.
Heyâ€¦ what? Her pet human is giving her a treat! Thatâ€™s not fair my pet human never ever gives me treats â€œGrrrr Grrrrâ€. I canâ€™t help myself I have to jump the fenceâ€¦ great. I have landed on my paws well, Â right in front of Lucy. You get treats. â€¦Youâ€™re on my territoryâ€¦. What the stupid man shoo me away? Iâ€™ll show him.
I leaped at Lucy pulling her to the ground, wow I knew Lucy was weak but not this weak I couldnâ€™t believe my luck! Before I knew it I was on top of Lucy hurting her with my sharp teeth. Her human was too late to help her â€¦.
Would you want this to happen with your dog? If you have an aggressive dog make sure your fence is safe so it canâ€™t get out.
