    Default Herschel Gave Me a Scare!

    I had taken Herschel and Fiona for a ride this past weekend. I stopped at a fast food place to grab a bite, and parked in the parking lot to eat and share a small treat with "the kids". A guy walked up to his car and Herschel had a fit! Ferocious barking like I had never heard before. I can probably count on my hands how many times he has barked since he came to live with me almost two years ago. I trust my dogs when it comes to this so I locked my door. The guy left and Hersch calmed down. I got out to take my trash to the bin and I opened the back of my CRV to clean up any mess the babies made and I about fainted. Herschel was dripping blood. I mean, blood all down his chest, on his paws, bubbling out of his mouth. I stayed calm and ran to grab a bottle of water out of the front and some wash rags (Hersch is a drooler so I always have towels around.) I am still somewhat freaking out and I thought "Oh my GOD! He bit FIONA!". I looked and her and she is happy as pie, grinning and not a drop of blood on her.

    Anyway, I start cleaning him off. Bloody drool still coming out of his mouth... that's when I see it.

    He bit his own lip while barking. The teeniest, tiniest little cut from a tooth. He is so slobbery that the blood mixed with the saliva and looked 100x worse than what it was.

    I rinsed his mouth out... it had already stopped bleeding. Both dogs staring at me like I was a moron for freaking out a bit.

    Sigh.

    Happy that Herschel is okay! If the guy had seen that-he would have ran away pretty fast!! Could've been the remains of the last guy who walked up to your car!!You are well protected.

    I'm so glad to hear it wasn't anything serious, and Herschel is okay.
    LEARN A LESSON FROM YOUR DOG, NO MATTER WHAT LIFE BRINGS YOU, KICK SOME GRASS OVER THAT AND MOVE ON.

    I would've freaked out myself, Danielle! I'm glad Herschel is okay. Did his tooth have to be looked at or anything? Herschel is definitely protecting his momma and sister (and car)! Finn and Tate bark like heck whenever someone knocks on my front door. Finn will also rush the front window and put his mouth right on the glass, barking crazily. Leaves me some very funky bulldog "art work"!

    Wow that is full on !! Glad everyone is alright. My friends dog that was nice as pie, but would freak out BIG time if anyone went near her car. Even when I knew the dog her really well outside the car I would not go near her when she was in her owner car, she was so proctective, she was not a bulldog a working dog.
    I have found that when you are deeply troubled, there are things you get from the devoted companionship of a dog that you can get from no other source
