WOW it really is so lovely to know so many people love Mack.
The poor old fella, it really was not fair to have been attacked by another dog while out walking minding his own business, plodding along (he walks terribly slow these days) and for this to happen in his twilight years.
Mack is not too happy about having to be in the outdoor cat run during the day
It is fully concreted and the best place to have him to ensure no dirt gets in his wounds.
There are no cats staying at the moment and I can fully clean away any smell of dog when Mack is all better,
It's back to having Stella and Mack separated - it really is a good idea if another animal is sore.
Stella misses playing and walking with her friend Mack.
This photo shows slightly his chest wound and his arm wound which goes right to the bone. OUCHY.
Hope not too graphic - I prefer not to look at graphic images myself.
Both the vets and the dog ranger have praised Brent for his quick thinking and me too of course I think Brent was soo brave. The dog that attacked is NOT a breed I would recommend anyone taking on and my heart is still pounding.
There is no way I or the kids could of done what Brent did . I spent yesterday morning on the net searching what to do if a dog comes running out and attacks while walking or riding the bike. Many are just too mandy pandy - stay still, don't run, don't look at the dog Yea like that is going to save your dog, child or self.
The following videos are the best I found - I learnt some great tips. Warning if you have young children I would watch it first then I would show parts to my young child.
