Thank you all so much for your kind words and support, it means more than you'll know.

Maddie has been stitched up and is recovering well. My vet is away at the moment (of course) but the vet on today has a grey of her own and worked at a greyhound specialist vets before so she is in good hands. I went and saw the woman who owns these dogs and she has said she will pay all costs so I hope she does. She was apologetic and crying, telling me it must have been a Jehovahs witness that left the gate open pfft, they didn't knock on my door and I live in the same street. I was still shaking with rage and as I have the filthiest temper it took all my strength to remain calm.

I can pick her up at 11.30, she will take some time to heal physically but I am concerned about mentally :( Luckily Stan's not real bright and judging by the fact he was barking in my face demanding his breakfast this morning and then chucked a tanty throwing his stuffed hippo around when he didn't get it I think he'll be ok :/

Thank you all again from the bottom of my heart xx

Oh Stan :laugh: he's resilient! You gotta give him that! I'm glad the woman at fault is going to pay, that's one thing you don't have to worry about at least.

Good to hear Maddie is recovering well. Look after yourself aswell :hug:

So glad to hear Maddie is recovering well. Lots of gentle pats to her. I hope both she and Stan won't suffer any psychological problems from it. It sounds like Stan has his spirits back so that's good. Big hugs. :grouphug:

Hopefully Maddie might be inclined to follow Stan's 'positive attitude' example!

Let us hope this is the case.

Hope you are okay, too, HazyWal, and no long lasting physical injuries.

I think I can speak for us all in saying that we will be following the recovery of all of you very closely. :heart::heart:

I think Stan is smarter than you give him credit for, he knows how to bounce back. I hope Maddy isn't too much affected, one of mine was wary around strange dogs for some months afterwards but got back to her normal attitude eventually.

Thank you.

To be honest I'm amazed that Stan came through without more serious injury. One of the dogs had his back leg and was dragging him while my poor boy screamed in terror :cry: He has bites to that leg and a piece out of his tail and he will be on antibiotics just in case. My hand is a nice mess this morning, the muscles in my right arm are sore and my ribs are painful for some reason :/

Take encouragement from darling Stan. He might be able to give Maddy more help to recover than you know. SOmetimes our silly buggars are our bravest in times of adversity.

Sending MORE hugs to all of you.

LOVE

:love:

Maybe the stupid owner should put her dogs out the back or put a lock on her gate?

The fact that even she could not control her Stafford is very worrying

Once dogs get into attack mode, it can take a lot of force to stop it.

Hopefully, the council will be having some very very serious discussions with this owner.

HW, when you are fighting for your dogs' lives, you don't know what physical effort and movement you going through. It is only later you discover aches and pains and injuries.

Look after your hand :(:( . I hope you are on ABs as well as Maddie and Stan.
