I had to go in to hospital after a nasty dog bite. Some asked why I tried to separate the dogs. In moments of panic and scream you try to do quick things, solutions.
I have worked with thousands of dogs but never have I seen a situation like this one!
The 30 kg dog attacked Sammy 12 kg without any warning and it was a direct go for kill.
I first tried the water bucket assisted by horrified Max (and Sammy is his dog)
The chewing from the big jaws on Sammy’s throat.
Then I reached for a kind of vacuum machine to hit the head with— which broke No reaction from the dog!
I tried push his eyes in. Make him snap out of it!
When Sammy passed out in his jaws, yes, I tried to bend his jaw open while Olivia tried to suffocate him. That’s when he open his mouth but he was quick, like jaws! And I tried to protect the kids in case he would turn around towards them. He was hanging in my hands.
Would I do it again? Yes!
My wounds looked like nothing compared to Sammy. My first instinct was Sammy’s life. So I drove him bleeding like crazy to our veterinarian that did a good job.
Sammy was in severe shock and we needed a special ct scan to see if his throat was damaged. I drove Sammy to another veterinarian one hour away, and yes still I didn’t think of my fingers.
I even parking on handicap without thinking.
Late, I returned home, and cleaning off my wounds.
In the night that’s when it start to hurt and swollen
I fed the dogs, and then went to the ER
I didn’t try to be a hero — only to save our beloved dog, Sammy!
I stayed for a couple of days, however, now I am home if I clean my wounds and makes a new hand-wrap.
It was so sad staying in the hospital, for many reasons.
Later, I will share my thoughts and experiences.
Have a great Little Christmas 🎄
