The attack happened this morning. The victim was Chloe, the sweet affectionate pit bull. The perpetrator was Fanny. She's a Basset Hound mixed with Border Collie and maybe Labrador Retriever. Three very dangerous breeds of dogs - I should have been more wary of her. If you own one of these dangerous breeds - especially a Basset Hound - be aware that they should be taken very seriously.
WARNING: The following pictures are quite graphic.
Fanny stalks her prey:
With no warning at all, she leans over Chloe's neck, and gives her a little lick.
Mission accomplished, Fanny looks up and scopes out her next victim.
She leaves the scene and leaves Chloe behind, totally upside down after the vicious lick she received.
The whole thing happened so quickly, I hardly had time to react. I am relieved that Chloe seems to have bounced back quickly from the event, and seems almost normal.
At least normal for Chloe.
