I was beyond distraught after watching my Raphael being attacked right in front of my eyes. We had 3 dogs that lived happily together for years, until the fateful day a neighbors dog was loose and came to our front gate barking wildly. Raphael and our female pit were outside sunning that morning. Both ran to the front gate and began barking. I was doing dishes and our other male was inside the house. I never let him out with those two. Rapahel was old, our other male young and powerful, they did not get along. The front door was ajar, out he went and re-directed on Raphael out of excitement. It was several minutes before I could break them up, I tried pulling them apart, got the water hose, broke a flower pot to make a loud noise, finally I got the comforter and threw it. He stopped. But Raphael was 13 at the time and severly injured. I rushed him to the vet, but he passed 2 days later after surgery.
As your wife does right now I hated the dog who re-directed and could not understand why. I wanted to find him a new home. I know he suffered for a few weeks from my neglect. I read postings on PBF and slowly began to understand. It took time, actually months before I could really come to terms with what happened.
I hope you and your wife stay with us. As you can see many of us have had similar situations and would love to help. I know your hearts are broken. My thoughts are with you and your wife. Praying for comfort in your hearts and mind.
