Poor Oscar ..... we were having a lovely walk today in the park when we bumped into a nice dog we know called Marcy and her friend name unknown. We have met these dogs before on our travels,the dogs have always seemed friendly enough, Marcy bounds around like a typical lab- the other dog, well she seems more timid. Whilst passing the time of day with Marcy's owner the other dog started to give a low rumbling growl at Oscar. Oscar ignored this and was standing by my side watching the world go by. All of a sudden the growling stopped and the dog launched herself at an unsuspecting Oscar - poor boy got a fright and showed some teeth back - all was soon over and we thought it was all noise. I asked if the dog had ever done that before to any other dogs and the owner seemed as puzzled why it had happened as I was, at that we went on our way. Oscar seemed fine and had no obvious marks on him, we met other friends, human and doggie, then made our way home for tea.
Only after tea did we realise that Oscar's ear was bleeding (he does have big ears being a beagle and the three little teeth marks were on the underneath side of his ear). Bless him, he was very brave as I washed the wound gently with anti-bacterial soap and applied savlon. It looks nice and clean so no real harm done. Poor boy was standing minding his own business, hadn't even given this dog a cursary sniff and he got into trouble.
Oscar got big hugs from me and sympathy kisses from Ruby aaaaahhhhhhhh.
