Yeah, one night last week our attack dog let out a grown and went out the back door skidding on all 4 corners. He's a 10" Pomeranian named Killerdawg. The little yellow pooch has a close haircut trim that leaves him a big black mane like an African Lion. I pulled my boots on and went out right behind him. I knew something was going to need to be rescued. Before I could clear the back door, the little varmint came back at us with his head & face drenched in blood. Then he spun around and ripped out thru the back door as if to say "Come on, Dad! You don't want to miss this fight!" He had a big boar raccoon tree'd in the rhododendron bush. Probably a 30 or 40 pounder. That raccoon was mad as H** and growling for all he was worth. I chased the ringtail out by throwing a ladder atop the rhododendron a couple of times, then climbing the ladder and falling into the rhody. The old 'coon bailed out of the rhody and made his escape over the chain link with Killerdawg right on his tail. Upshot of the event, the 'coon made good his escape. Killerdawg was prancing around the house thoroughly pleased with himself. After a few treats and hosing him down, a careful inspection did not show any damage to the dog, so the raccoon must have had the worst of it and shed all that blood. I've never let him lose a fight, save the once he went after me. His previous Mama taught him to hate all men in general and me in particular. Go figure! After trying to swallow my Size 10, he figured there was no future in it. He's not dumb, just real "sporting" when it comes to a fight. He knows if the Rottweiler won't back down from his lion's roar that Dad will be right there to save him. He's no fighter to look at him; just cute as a bugs ear, confident s the dickens and always begging for a treat. But bring along a Big Dog and you'd swear he's a cross 'tween a Pomeranian and an Alligator, with some Lion thrown in to spice up the fight!
