Poor little Gustave. I am so glad it was a minor bite and that he is doing ok. I don't blame you about not takings him back.

Glad your baby was seriously injured. Were the dogs separated according to size?
I think it might be the other dog who will need the socialization. Just a thought you might want to express in writing to the day care. Big hug.

I am so very sorry Gustave had such a frightening experience! Goodness, that must have been so traumatizing for you. I'm glad there is no serious or permanent damage. Give Gustave a gentle pat for me and tell him his Auntie is so proud of how brave he was at the vet's.

Oh no! Poor Gustave He will heal quickly and hopefully the event won't have made him nervous of other dogs.

Oh my, your poor sweet baby. Although by now, Gustav is probably trying to figure out what all the fuss is about. Mommy, on the other hand . . . ! I hope he heals quickly!

I am so sorry and would be irate also!!!!!
Ask your Vet if there are any Maltese in their practice and if so could you be in contact with them. Maybe you could find a sitter with other small dogs at their home....we all appreciate extra money and what better than a loving home with another Malt.
I would not go to a doggy daycare ever again.
Hugs for Gustave.

Dogs can be very possessive about their food/water while they are eating or drinking. Maybe Gustave knows this and thinks he was wrong for disturbing the other dog and is why he's not upset about it. I'm glad he wasn't hurt worse and hope his eye heals soon. I really wouldn't blame either of the dogs because I think it's their instinct. The day care should have a way to keep them separate when eating/drinking. JMHO.

It dosent matter were u go, things like this can always happen. Just 3 days ago i went for a walk with my Lili and took my friends chihuauwa with me. I had two of them on the Leash and a bigger dog came(off leash, he and Lili get along verry well) bud he just turn to the chihuawa and attackt him! We took him to the ER and the owner of the other dog came with us and also sed she will take care of all the bills. he lucky dident breack anithyng bud he had a bite wound witch they had to desinfect and will need to take meds for 1 week. I cant imagine how i would hafe reackt if a dog would attack Lili! I hope your sweet is doing fine and that he is getting better soon! I think not to bring him there its a good idea, not that he is combinating this place with pain and is always affraid there:-( Cuddles!
