A stranger approached and asked to pet Heidi. At the same moment that the man bent over to pet the dog, she popped up and hit his nose – unfortunately the man’s nose was broken.
Now, the Assistant Deputy City Attorney wants Heidi destroyed – for attacking the man.
Attacking? No doubt, the impact with the nose hurt – but attacking? More like unfortunate accident.
The city’s reaction is nothing short of mind-boggling. Since when did a dog who jumps up in excitement equate to a dog attack?
A show of virtual hands from the large-breed dog owners out there…how many of you have come into painful contact with your own dog’s hard noggins??
