This morning we tried to sleep in as much as Dixie would let us! Jazz is quite happy to have breakfast and then come back to bed but not Dixie. Anyway we were all up and hungry so we went down the road to an American style dinner that has started serving breakfast! They have a covered in outside deck so we all sat out there and had pancakes and cooked breakfast and hot coffee. After breakfast the girls and I walked around the block to the park and dog run. When I let the girls in a Shiba Inu ran at them snarling, biting and barking. Jazz was trying to protect Dixie and I was struggling in vain to pick up both of them. The owner of the Shiba refused to put his dog a lead until I used very strong words with him. Anyway what started as a wonderful Saturday morning ended in a trip to the vet for Dixie with a torn ear. The Shiba had bitten right through Dixie's little ear! The vet gave us some antibiotics and some cream to put on the wound for the next four days.
