Rosie - Guardian angel

When I had the girls out earlier today for their walk around a corner came a border collie - he can be a nasty little tyke this particular dog. They never have him on a lead and if he sees another dog he "goes" for it. Its horrible how it can all happen so quickly.

He zoomed in on Katie at a speed that would do many a greyhound proud, snarling and snapping. Before I could even react, Rosie who had been on the other side of me dashed in in front of Katie and just stood there, she was there to protect her little sister and that dog was in no way going to hurt Katie. Rosie's whole stance said it all "Just you dare". Collie backed off.

I was so proud of Rosie. Mum has always said that Rosie was an angel sent to share our lives and now she has proven herself to be a guardian angel to her little sister as well.

It never ceases to amaze me just how protective our babies can be. They'll protect anyone who means anything to them and it's what makes them so special!!

Well done Rosie, I assume she got an extra big treat at tea time!

Was Katie scared at all or did she not notice what was going on??!!

No Karen, Katie was not a bit scared, she wanted to leap and jump and "play" with this other dog. Rosie was the same at that age, they dont realise other dogs are not always friendly!

We have a law here that says all dogs must be kept on a leash at all times when out walking and they are actually breaking the law not only because he is never on a leash but also because he is so nasty and nippy.

Havent met a collie yet that isnt unpredictable and definately nippy. Can no longer walk with one of my friends as her collie decided she hated all boxers when i got Jake, and makes every effort to go for them. Glad your all ok and survived your experience.

Glad your all ok. These things do happen very quickly, I guess you'll be keeping any eye out for this dog in future.

Always did Jacqui. Always went a different way to where they walked it but they themselves have started another direction which is how we were caught out. They really shouldnt have the dog as they are not capable of controlling it and it definitely should not be off lead at any time.

Re: Rosie - Guardian angel

Unfortunatly there are alot of people that are like that. Our neighbour has a collie. It's never walked, it's only exersice is in the back garden to go to the toilet. It barkes all day and I notice they now have a note on there door saying to use the box on the wall as the dog bites! Not the letter box. It's going to explode one day! nasty combanation. These dogs are intelegent and need stimulation. It'll go off its head with boredom

Re: Rosie - Guardian angel

When I lived at home Karen I did report one. Another older couple [in their 70s] lived round the corner from mum and another border collie. They just let it run and it was forever attacking dogs and dog walkers. If you shouted at it, it went for you. The dog warden phoned me back and said there had been numerous complaints about it. It was owned by an elderly couple anfd their only companion, all they had in life and as it always came back it was their way to exercise it. I got the impression DW was on their side. They did keep it in for a bit but then it started to come out again. There was one big commotion [I mean really bit with a lot of dog noise - more than one dog] one evening around 10.30-11pm and after that I never saw it again. I often wondered if someone had taken matters into their own hands!

Its a shame really as they are lovely dogs in the right hands. I have a friend who has Lassie collies and one rescued Border but they work all their dogs plus breed show. Dogs are always kept stimulated and active.

I agree Jacqui, the poor dog will go mad with boredom.

I have to admit that if I am out walking Sasha, the only type of dog I tend to worry about is a collie, as they have been unpredictable towards Sasha in the past.

I hope you manage to sort out the situation - maybe Rosie's response will make the owners sit up and take notice?? It might even make the collie take notice - it will know that Katie isnt an easy target anymore.

Think Karen it is just better I try and avoid them. The lady owner cant see very well so she just shuffles about behind the dog - way way behind! Oh dear I make them sound dire and they are but as I said before, its not a suitable home for a youngish active dog!

They are putting in new water mains pipes in mum's area and when I had the girls out today, Katie was half scared of all the noise and commotion. Rosie plods on, nothing fazzes her! I was going to go a different route but then decided that it would do Katie no harm to see different things and hear different sounds. Where mum lives it is very quiet during the day. Livens up at night since "get rich quick" landlords have started to buy up houses and let them out to students. That is another story - wont go into it now too much. Mum is worrying herself into an early grave at the moment as the adjoining semi to her is up for letting again.

Re: Rosie - Guardian angel

When you guys are talking "Collie" are you meaning the BORDER COLLIE or a COLLIE?? Just wondering because what I have read and seen, a Collie is one of the most laid back gentle dogs I have ever seen. My aunt has had collie's for as long as I can remember. She has had 7 that I can remember well. All 7 were and are wonderful dogs. They are great with kids, people, other dogs, cats...You guys remember Lassie? Thats what all of my aunts dogs were like. I added a link below to show you guys her most recent dogs.

Re: Rosie - Guardian angel

Aaaahhh sounds like Rosie and Molly look after their little sisters, Molly is exactly the same except she would more than likely have used additional force although I suppose if she was on the lead as Rosie was she would have done her impression of a Tazmanian devil which I am sure would have deterred the collie.

Just shows how protective our babies are of their family members which is very reassuring.

Paul

ps. Molly also does a good impression of a physco nutter boxer which is less than desirable but keeps other aggressive dogs at a safe distance so that poor Tash comes to no harm - if Molly could talk she would probably say that she was misunderstood!
