My dog was bitten... :(

I am so sad today - and just need to vent - yesterday while at a barbeque at a girlfrieds cottage - my baby-dog Jackson was bitten by another dog (Sophie). Sophie is very clean, well taken care of - thus, I was not worried about rabies etc. Sophie's owner was in hysterics over the situation, and was so worried about Jackson. I was surprisingly calm and FI was very proud that I didn't go into hysterics at the time.
Later last night when we got home, I cleaned the spot - assuming that it was just a surface scratch - near midnight, I discovered that he had been fairly badly punctured by the bite.
I took Jackson into the vet this morning (I have a fantastic vet) but, because he is a hyper Jack Russell Terrier, the vet needed to sedate him. Once the area was shaved and prepped the vet needed to to put 3 staples in his puncture wound, to seal it. Upon further investigation, another small puncture was found and simply needed surgical glue.
I have been sick with worry all morning and cannot wait for the day to be over so I can pick up my baby Jack from the clinic.
Thanks for listening - I actually feel better.

I'm glad that your friend was very upset that her dog did this. Has your dog been around this other dog before?

His name is Trigger and We started calling him Triggy Triggy Conehead. LOL he love it. I would say it in a sing song type of voice. He still answers to me when I call him Conehead lol. OH I love my dogs they are a constant source of love and entertainment.
