Default very scary few minutes

for the august long weekend.. we went to visit relatives who live on shuswap lake in central british columbia canada..

Killer came with us like he does on almost all our family trips..

when we got to their house.. they had a poodle cross that weights about 25 pounds.. who was confined to the deck as he kept trying to run away and roll in random things..

anywho.. after a while.. Killer seemed very interested in meeting the poodle.. he likes to play with any dog, or any animal that will play with him..

the owners said he was friendly and good with smaller dogs.. so.. I decided to introduce them so they could play..

I went onto the deck, which has alumiun raillings with plexiglass inserts..

heres where I made my major mistake.. I put Killer down.. he barked lightly a couple times to get the poodles attention..

the poodle happened to be around the conner of the deck.. when he heard Killer bark, he came running at full speed around the corner.. very excited that some one had come to play with him..

Killer.. seeing this much larger dog running at him at full speed.. got scared.. and turn a 180 and ran as fast as he could the other way..
not looking where he was going.. he ran directly into one of the plexiglass deck windows..

Thank god he only knocked himself out cold.. but I didn't know that at first.. he was stiff as a board and pretty much non responsive for about 30 seconds..

I of coarse was freaking out as I thought he had broken his neck.. I am a trained first responder and fire fighter.. and my training kicked in for the most part.. I proceeded to check him over and after I was done the rapid body survey on my smalled patent to date.. I was pretty sure he was just knocked out and hadn't broken his neck like I first feared..

after about 30 seconds he started to come to, kinda like a punch drunk fighter.. and within 2 minutes he was back to full alertness..

he was panting badly and wouldn't drink any water.. as it was 35+C out.. we gave him a couple cool baths which seemed to calm him down alot..


what I learned the hard way from this.. I will never put him down with out first introducing him to new dogs, unless they are tied up..

that was one of the worse couple minutes of my life.. and I'm not going to let it happen again..

Glad everything turned out o-k, how awful for killer and you. We all do things and then think "what was I thinking" will, we weren't thinking but now we can all learn from your bad experience. Thank you for shareing.

It's a good thing you are a first expounder, I would have been off the wall uncontrollable!! I would have ended up in an argument because I would be afraid if future repercussions!

But since you are a first responder, that is such a help!!

Glad that he is okay!
