Ok - funny little Pit story.
As you may or may not know I recently attended a Poodle Romp at a local park...about 50 poodles, mostly rescues and mostly standards.
There was one big brown guy who's about 4 and nothing is known of his background except he came in ungroomed and unsocialized.
Well, things were going pretty well, a few minor scuffles occurred but small stuff. Then from across the park a huge 150 pound mastiff came strolling over to check out 'our' side of the park. Well Big Brown Guy decided he just didn't like him and jumped him. Unfortunately Mastiff's dog companion was a Pit, who immediately came running over to defend his buddy. Of course, 8 or 10 poodles ran over to get involved. We looked on horrified, grabbing our dogs, as the fight ensued. Jackson was in the general vicinity and although he's a big chicken I ran towards the melee to gather him up. It seemed like all I could see was a swarm of dog parts, with that big brown guy (with his new foo-foo haircut) sometimes three feet in the air above the havoc below. The poor Mastiff was trying back out of the situation and the pit was getting his butt kicked by all those poodles.
As happens in most dogpark fights, all ended with no injuries. Big Brown Guy got hauled off to his car. Poor Mastiff and Pit were taken back to the other side of the park by their owner.
At the time it was very scary but every time I think back on it I want to laugh at the sight of those fluffy bracelets, tailpom and topknot up in the air and the poor Pit wondering what happened to that flying dervish he wasn't quick enough for.
