Pay vet bill when your aggressive dog bites

You know who you are and in our opinion the decent thing for you to do would be to “pick up the tab.”

To the editor:

On Saturday Dec. 1 my husband took our three very sociable dogs to Rutland dog park as he has done daily for many years without incident.

While throwing the ball for our English pointer Abby, another dog decided it was his ball (not uncommon).  Unfortunately he not only went after the ball, but our beloved Abby and his aggression resulted in a nasty gash on her ear.

It wasn’t until they returned home that we realized the extent of her injuries.

A huge thank-you to Dr. Moria at Pawsitive Vet Care for taking time out before her staff Christmas party to tend to Abby.

(To the aggressive dog owner:) You know who you are and in our opinion the decent thing for you to do would be to “pick up the tab.”  If not, I hope Karma bites you in the—ear!
