If things could not get any worse...(long)
I am very upset and need some advice. Today as I was preparing to leave to go pick up my mother for radiatioin, Delilah busted thru the gate that I had not secured properly. I went to unlock the gate to put the dogs in the house before I left. Since I had not secured the gate, she made her get away. I got in the car to go catch her. I have had to do this on a few other occasions. However, today was different. She usually comes to me when she sees the car. She just kept ripping thru the neighborhood. I was going to be late picking up mother. She gets real upset when I am not there by a certain time. Well, I finally stopped the car and get out. She and a small dauchand are sniffing each other. When I approached, the small dog barked at me. Then Delilah attacked the dog. I ran and grabbed Delilah by her collar. I think she was protecting me. She is very protective of me. I got her away and the little dog ran under her carport and under the car. I got Delilah in the car and took her home. I put her in the house. The lady that owned the small dog finally came out of her house as I was getting Delilah off of her dog. She just stood there and looked at me really mean. I feel so horrible, because I could not stay and see if her dog was ok, because I had to get to mother's house. What should I do? I am scared that if I go talk to this woman, she will call the police because she thinks that I have a vicious(sp ?) dog, and they will take her and put her down. I want to find out if her dog was injured, because I would pay foor the vet bill. My husband says not to go talk to her, because she will call the police. Delilah is never allowed to roam the neighborhood. This was just an accident. How could I prove that it was an accident if she said otherwise? The dogs are either in the house or in the fence with me or to use the bathroom. This was my fault because I have had so much on my mind. I could not live with myself if the little dog was hurt. Please offer some advice. I am so upset about this. I cried and shook all the way to pick up mother. I even had to pull over and compose myself, because I was afraid that I was going to wreck the car. I feel so horrible.
