Jack got attacked by the neighbour's dogs. (he's okay.)
We were walking down my driveway when I saw the first dog. I see it around a lot. It's a small black pitbull-type dog (I'm terrible at recognizing kinds of dogs but it looks like a small pitbull-type thing.) This dog scares me, but is usually also scared of me and runs away. It came right up to Jack and sniffed him, but didn't seem friendly. I made "psssht" noises, which have worked on it in the past, but then another dog, same type, comes running at us, barking, and launches onto Jack. Thankfully these were very small dogs, not tiny but I easily kicked away the quieter one (not a hard kick) off of him but the other one was nipping Jack. I think it nipped his ear. He yelped. :frown:
They were snarling and I couldn't get away from them and was freaking out. Finally the neighbours came out. They didn't seem very concerned. They were more concerned than I thought they'd have been, though. They're kind of youngish guys, have loud parties. (When I say youngish, I mean like 30. I'm 20.) I am rambling. They checked Jack over and he thought he was getting a tummy rub.
I didn't know what to do. Should they get in trouble for this? Jack wasn't hurt? I think the dog that actually jumped on him was just visiting. (Note: Pitbulls aren't banned here.)
Jack is fine, but I finished the walk there on the driveway and now I'm too scared to take us outside again. I'm glad he's big and his thick coat seemed to stop them doing any damage.
