Default Gambit Was Attacked

My poor precious coyboy. I had both boys out to go potty on Tuesday, and we were charged by a strange pit bull. It managed to pin Gambit by the car, then again on my porch when he fought free. I dragged Quiddich inside (stupid thing thought that getting involved was the totally right thing to do), got my mace and hosed the dog down. It bolted off and I was able to rescue Gambit and rush him to the vet.

Luckily, he's not injured badly. The dog had him by the throat, but it looks like it mostly got a mouthful of collar (thank God I went with the two inch wide one!) and his skin was just scraped. He has a puncture on his right front leg, and another one on his elbow which needed to be X-rayed, but no broken bones.

They sent him home with a soft cone, but it mostly made him look like a homicidal daisy, so I've been letting him leave it off when I'm watching. He seems to be in good spirits, but getting McDonalds after a vet visit tends to do that to him.

Vibes for a quick and uncomplicated recovery?

Poor boy! I hope he's feeling better quickly.

Do you know who the dog belongs to?

Scary, happy he wasn't seriously hurt. Every dog owners nightmare. Hope the hosing and mace keeps the dog away and you can figure out who owns it.
