Stompor sends cuddles and well wishes to biggiethedachshund and big kisses to his grandpa! Get well soon, Biggie!
Awwww thanks buddy! :)
Guys, thank you so much for all your kind words. I can’t believe how lucky we are that everyone is okay now.
We are actually close friends with one of the K-9 police in the area (his GSD is such a goof ball) and he said it was a good thing we reported it, especially since he actually broke the skin on my fathers leg. He said that animal control is going to take it very seriously.
Anyways, thanks again for the kind words, I read them all to my Dad and he thinks he’s a regular internet hero now lol!
Biggie was attacked today by a pit bull/lab mix on his daily 5 mile walk with my Dad. In the last 1/2 mile they were walking on the sidewalk of a mildly busy street. My Dad saw the dog climb OVER the chain fence of a house across the street and bolt through traffic towards them. He lunged at Biggie and grabbed him around the torso. My father punched him 3 times in the side of the head as hard as he could to try and get him to let go of Biggie and it didn’t phase him at all. Eventually, he had to lift Biggie up by his neck in the air to get him free from the other dogs jaws. Finally he got on the ground and grabbed hold of the chain around the mixes neck and twisted it, choking him, all while holding Biggie with the other hand from darting into the road.
Some people got out of their cars to help but by the time they got there, the owner (an older lady) had crossed the room and taken hold of her dog. She didn’t say A WORD.
At this point, my father was enraged. He picked up Biggie and walked him home without turning around. Only after he got back did he feel the scratches on his leg. We are so lucky, Biggie has no cuts or any other visible injuries. He does have small scrapes on his belly where the dogs jaws were, and you can see the dried saliva. He is pretty shaken up.
We filed a police report and notified animal control. Very scary. I don’t know what would have happened if I was walking him, my Dad is very strong and over 6 foot 4 which is why he was able to protect Biggie, but if I was there I wouldn’t have been strong enough. We are extremely lucky.
Uhg I’m trying to sleep mom…
So I got a little 2.5 gal and 8 shrimp. There is 5 ghost shrimp, two blue (tiger?) shrimp and one Crystal Red shrimp. Also a little zebra nerite snail in the top corner!
I really love having these little guys because I don’t have enough room for fish and the shrimp do great in the smaller tanks!
I was tagged by ollietherottweiler for the Handwriting Challenge, so here it goes! (Bigs was being a needy baby during the picture taking process so I had to add the lower pics!)
Warning, my handwriting is pretty bad, I mean my e’s…

Okay, now to the goodies! These are a few of Biggies most favorite things in the world that YOU could win!
-Two ToyShoppe Playables. These are great because they don’t have any stuffing, which Biggie is prone to ripping out, ingesting, throwing up, and then trying to re-ingest all over again. One is a Fox and the other is a Skunk.
-One orange ToysRUs Pets chicken-flavored chew-toy. Biggie can chew on this for hours (his is a green one) and many of you know how Biggie feels about chicken flavor!
-One bag of Chicken Jerky strips from Milo’s Kitchen. These delicious munchies are great for a special treat. They are also free of any artificial flavoring and coloring!
-Two Blue Buffalo dental chew bones. These are super yummy AND good for puppers teeth!
