Bud's injury was not serious but I count my blessings. When I was 12 years or so I saw my brothers beagle mix attack Jet my grandfathers black Lab. They were both in tact males. I know that there are many wonderful in tact males. The dog who bit Bud was probably a very good dog. What I think is that the owner of the in tact male has to keep the dog out of trouble.
Bud is recovering. He can swim again on Monday. In the meantime, he is enjoying his new toy.
