Oh no! Is Bucky ok? I'm so sorry about what happened to him! I can't believe people have the audacity to scare dogs or pet without asking(this is why 'dog attacks' happen and then the dog gets blamed). Dogs are kinda like people too, in a way. I don't know how my dog would react if it would happen (she's a Bichon), but I'm sure she would jump wit her tail inbetween her legs. It honestly upsets me when I see people pet dogs without asking. I normally just look a the dog from afar and either (1/2)
ask or wait for the owner to say ‘you can pet her’. Honestly, I treat dogs like people and respect them as I would with a person. (2/2)
@heyitssilverwolf Bucky is fine. He’s gone into that, I’m feeling sorry for myself kind of deal and is laying in his bed. It happens a lot, he’s just never been ‘this’ scared before. Honestly, I’m happy that I’m getting this kind of response and not people telling me I’m over reacting! If a lot more people were like you, walking Bucky would be easier. Sometimes, if he spots a person looking at him, he wants to go up to them first!
Bucky is my child. When people treat him like a person, not just some animal, it makes me really happy. He isn’t just a dog to me; he’s my favourite person.- Ro
