We took Ellie on her usual walk around the block this evening. I'm always weary of the house on the corner, where two little white mutts live. The owners let them run wild sometimes. One of the owners was watering his lawn with the front door slightly open. The dogs saw Ellie and came tearing out growling and barking. The owner tried spraying them with the hose, but they kept coming. I was able to pick her up just in time, thank goodness. She is just 13 weeks and hasn't been around other dogs yet. I think I read on this board to pick your puppy up in that type of situation (so they don't become dog aggressive after being bitten), so I'm thankful I knew to do that!
