    Did the usual dog and kid walk to the park. Lady with 2 pugs says can my dogs come visit yours. I have a frenchie who is harmless.... Only thing she may do is get a bit bitchy if feels invaded but its a growl and nothing else.

    So 2 pugs approach and the all is fine my dog does her snap.. (Not bite) and one of the pugs screams in agony. The fucking eye popped out of her head ( not sure but lady might have jerked her dog in a reaction).

    So its a freakish accident, a guy says I may be able to pop it back in cause its common. She says no and is crying. I am trying whatever I can to help, she says its not my dogs fault. I feel like shit and follow her to her house where I tell her some info I saw. She is heading to ER and declines any thing further from me.

    So I feel like shit, I hope she does not get raked over by the vet but that's a given. Morally I on the hook for half? My dog did not bite her but it would have never happensd for the encounter.

    So I tell wife we offer some $$ assistance should it just be half? Jeez us

    She does.not have any of my info but I know where she lives and will visit tmw.

    If the dog's eye falls out of it's head, there's something wrong with it, probably bad breeding. Offer some $$ if you like, but stay away from pugs in the future.

    Fuck.it was nasty but the dog soon stopped screaming and yelping. Online it says it can happen from sudden jerk of head or leash pull etc. Itsa freak accident.

    If you offer half you are admitting fault and she can sue you for the whole amount.

    Actually it is somewhat common with those ugly little dogs. Not just pugs.

    Thinking about it I will offer some $$ ... I think she was a single mom, her daughter when I got to the house was upset and its traumatic. If my little fuck didn't snap, which she does but never once has bitten ever it would not have happend

    Wait for her to ask, synch. You offered, she'll take you up on it if she needs it.

    Nerd's pug had it's eye gouged out by her other dog. :puke:

    You offered. She declined. That's all that can be done.

    She should have known one of the possibilities was one of the dogs bristling up...and surely she had a frame of reference for how freaky and reactionary her dog might be. Not saying she was asking for it, but don't beat yourself up....

    Called the animal hospital and spoke to her. She was taken back and said how kind I have been throughout. Dog was being seen and I will speak to her tmw.
    I feel better, thanks for chiming in.... I am not. Against some $$ like some have said if she needs some assistance she will take it if not I feel better about the whole deal.
    The person is in my community , that matters to me.

    My opinion on whether to insist on giving her money hinges on if the owner has nice tits.
