Should I report it to the humane society so there’s a record in case another animal or person gets attacked by it?
    Yeah, he pays the bill. Yeah, it needs to be documented. I’d skip the humane society and let the police know. If he went out of his way to take responsibility and pay any/all bills and was embarrassed enough by the whole thing to apologize and take better care of his dog, I might skip the police, but any question marks on any of that and you owe it to everybody else that dog might encounter to get it documented.
    focus.

    Report it to the police even if the guy is nice. Imagine a kid or someone less able to handle the situation taking their dog for walk and getting attacked. It needs to be reported.

    Yeah, you could easily end up there too. I had a similar situation where the neighbor dog came into my yard and attacked my dog. Left a good puncture wound on his face.

    The neighbor was profusely sorry, paid all the vet bills, and explained the underlying situation where the in-laws let the dog out off leash contrary to explicit instructions. Never had another problem and I could tell they were extra careful with the dog going forward.

    I didn’t report to police and that still feels like it was the right thing to do. YMMV.
    focus.

    Definitely report it, make him pay any vet bills, and he should commit to some sort of training designed for aggressive dogs. I don't think you can really mess around with these sorts of things, unfortunately.

    Ugh, that's awful, hope your pup is ok Falcon. Yes, you have to report this type of incident and yes, the owner should pay for the vet bill and take whatever required steps animal control requires. The process can raise tensions, so try and be as matter of fact as possible and take care of your pup while making sure your bills are paid. I've seen some truly horrible dog owners double down in situations like this.




    In other news, apparently the bed I got for the new pup, Shep, isn't good enough for him so he insists on laying on top of Connor in his all the time now. It's very cute, but I can tell sometimes Connor is just tolerating the invasion of his 'safe space'.

    Very cute Bmills!!

    Back to the dog fight. It's one thing if two dogs kinda mix it up and get a couple scratches. It sounds like the attack was unprovoked and the dog was trying to kill your dog Falcon. That sort of aggression needs to be reported and recorded.

    Thanks fellas

    It looks like WA has some pretty common sense laws on “dangerous” dogs. Need to be under direct control of owner and muzzled or in enclosed space with roof. That’s what this dog needs. He was absolutely trying to kill my dog and busted through his fence and out into the street to get to us entirely unprovoked.

    I’ll approach the dude in the daylight on Saturday with the bill. I live in a rough-ish gentrifying neighborhood, but it does look like this guy owns his home so there should be insurance at least.

    Re: “Wily”
    I had some buddies who rented far-rural desert ranch house about 30 miles west of taos, a series of them passed it from one to the next. Ski bums, wildland fire guys…coming and going. The house came with a tame coyote, named Wily, who would sometimes hang around for awhile, or other times just check in every now and then. He was a good lil guy. I was a real fan of that animal and that mode of living.

    I have a friend who had a coyote/dog mix that looked like a skinnier version of yours. She was a pretty great little buddy too. Smart. Got along with other dogs. Just watch out for cats.

    That's awesome. I feel like Momo was my family's second Border Collie since the first board book ever given to our son when he was born was "Find Momo". Many others followed, along with puzzles, pictures, etc that Andrew produced. That was 7 years ago. When Momo was going through his late life struggles this past year and a half, it was very informative to me and very heart-wrenching to follow along as our Connor is now 15.5 years old and dealing with some of the same issues. Hard not to see your own dog in the images of another (despite that Connor is a few years older than Momo).

    Reading Andrew's posts the final week of Momo's life would bring tears to the eyes of anyone who reads the "It's Just a Dog Thread". My son and I kept Connor very close to us during that time. I'm excited to see that like us, he is getting another Border Collie soon.

    For anyone unfamiliar, Andrew's photography, and IG account, of Momo and their travels around the globe are amazing. (https://www.instagram.com/andrewknapp/?hl=en)


    We got our Connor on a low dose Deramaxx regimen and monitoring his bloodwork to make sure its not doing any damage and so far so good. We've been up to the mountains a bunch, camping in GSMNP and to the beach a bunch and he's trucking right along. He just has to worry about a 13 week old (albeit much, much calmer than he ever was at that age) version of his younger self wanting to play and nip all the time. I think it's helped.

    Yeah, those books have been our go-to presents for friends/relatives' kids. And Andrew is a really nice and genuine guy IRL.

    I only stopped following him because I gave up on Instagram itself (FB too).

    That's great to hear about him. I always got that impression, but as with anything on social media you don't know for sure. He gave Momo one hell of a life, and inspired a ton of kids around the world, I'll say that.

    She… her name is panda. Been a while since I posted a pic of her.

    @bmills… I remember you posting about momo before… I looked at a bunch of his pics after.
