crazy smiley Not much to report from pool 8 or 9 this week. Not because they fish weren't biting...We went out Saturday with my daughter, wife and two labs for a great weekend of fishing. Stopped on a sandbar for lunch, down a few sandbars was another boat with another dog. My labs did not approve of an unknown dog coming onto the sandbar. My lab stepped towards the other dog, and then went at the other dog...aggressively. My lab is great around kids and a real protector, and was not sure about another dog being around my daughter. I was on the boat and saw what was happening. My wife was closer and first to get there. The other dog grabbed her hand and wouldn't let go. I ran like a deer and grabbed the dogs apart, the other dog then grabbed my right hand. My wife ended up with stiches, I ended up with a bad reeling hand and a torn hamstring from wrestling the dog away. Ironic the biggest bite of the weekend was a dog bite.

My wife is doing well, I am also. Fortunately the dog was current on shots. After a visit to the ER, we decided to return to do some fishing, lots of small mouth and a few large, but nothing to tip the scales. Not easy to fish on antibiotics and painkillers!

Glad you are all ok, sorry to hear about the incident. I really like dogs, but I really really like owners that have control of their dogs. If your dog wanders off and you aren't doing anything about it then its your fault if your dog gets its butt kicked.

I probably would have taken a swing or two at the dog myself if it was chewing on my wifes hand. My restraint only goes so far.

You probably have some legal action you could take against the other owner if you felt it was neccessary, people really need to keep their dogs close to them. For the dogs protection as well as other peoples protection.

We normally have our dogs on a leash, but took them off to let them swim, so I admit to some of the responsibility. I had not seen the other boat land, or I would have put them back on, but I'm also glad they were off to step infront of my daughter.

Not planning any legal action. I heard they might try to charge the vet bill on their dog to us...because "technically our dog attached theirs" (their words, not ours). Theirs was just curious and not aggressive according to them. As far as their dog grabbing my wife and me, I think that was more accidental them deliberate as it was getting it's backside handed to it at the time. I hold no grudge as I love dogs, and am just glad nothing worse happened.

I am glad you have kept a cool head about this. More people need to approach these situations like you have. I personally wouldn't have sued them either, bad things happen and its best if both sides can admit to their fault and move on.

If their dog approached you they are going to have a hard time getting their bills paid for. If your dog was in your control or atleast very close by you then its not likely going to be your fault.

Sounds like you have a good loyal protective dog. Labs are great dogs. When i was real young we had a lab that would gently hold your hand in its mouth and walk you to go get the mail at the end of the drive way. She was a great dog and very protective of me and my family.

i have a boxer. our neighbor has a golden retriever, before we had the boxer the golder retriever would pretty much be our dog so when we got the boxer the golden retriever got jealous and started fighting with my dog, of course my little sister is right next to them and she tries to stop it but shegot bit by our neighbors dog and was bleeding all over so for know on whenever our neighbors dog come over we have to bring Rocco(our dog) inside.
