I wish my Retriever would defend himself against some 7# ankle biter attack. It's the human that saved him 9 out of 10 times.

I saw it on the news last night we heard the little boy on the phone , telling the news how proud he was of his dog

it got me scared a bit , last year I saw a dead cougar by the side of the road here. I couldn't believe it but made some research and found out some of them are coming here from the Adirondack in Vermont. and I heard of another sighting too, again in my area.

I saw it on the news last night too - awesome! We live and walk in cougar country and have only had one encounter from which we just walked away - got into a subdivision then ran like h###.

Angel is definitely a hero!
