GASP!

KITTEHS!
 
Our Mom was ASSAULTED! We're just shocked.
 
 
See how shocked I am??
 
She came home yesterday from her evening walk smelling like a DOG.
and she'd been SLOBBERED ON! Didn't we tell you ??!!!
 
What is this world coming to? We feel faint.
 
 
The Mom: He was a beautiful big lab of about 80 pounds, still very much a puppy in spirit if not size. He was out with his person and wanted to make friends with everyone he saw. I do like dogs and didn't mind this, even when he took my fingers in his teeth and slobbered on me.
 
What I did mind was that he wasn't on a leash, didn't have a collar on and clearly was not trained to voice commands. He started running all over creation, completely ignoring his human. There are many people in the world who are afraid, even terrified, of dogs. Having one this size bound up to you and take your hand in his mouth might just freak them out enough to hide in a closet for a year. Not to mention, he was perilously close to the major road my community lives off of.
 
Toby wouldn't come near me for awhile after I returned home. Poor guy!

  1. The Mom, I hope you gave the goggies human a few words of encouragement to: a) use a leash, and b) get some training!

    1. We weren't close enough to talk, but I kept looking at the dog and back at her. I don't think she really got the message.

  2. Haha, I love your face expression :-) It's quite shocking indeed!
    I hope hte lab's human will walk him on leash and give proper training. It's for safety for both humans and the dog.

  3. Dog slobber needs just one thing - cat slobber to make it smell better!

  4. Ick! My human hates dog slobber! She likes dogs, but only from a distance, and would not have been happy to see one running around without a leash - it's dangerous, for the dog.

    1. That is how I feel, but it is also sometimes dangerous for the human.

  8. Well as mom says there are no bad DOGS just very BAD owners.

  10. 80 pounds is a darned big puppy. All dogs needs good training, IMO, and while I grew up with dogs and love them, I really dislike it when one comes bounding up to me and pounces on me--especially if I'm heading to work, with my office clothes on and the dog's paws are muddy. It's beyond inconsiderate of their human. Definitely lousy owners.

    Nicki and Derry always sniff my clothing with great interest when I've "cheated" on them with a dog or cat, but neither has had Toby's reaction to you! LOL.

    Thanks for stopping by!

  11. I dislike dogs, no matter how sweet...or not.... when they are running around like that. All three of my sons were bitten several times trying to deliver papers and they dislike dogs to this day. Owners seem not to care that their dogs are out of control. And inflict freight and damage. Sorry...doggie soapbox. xox

  12. Oh Toby, we hope that you can't smell the woofie anymore and that you are back to giving your Mom luvvins! (Hope you and Leia have a great Caturday!)
