Today, I saw the pumpkin I had put out for Halloween was starting to get mushy. I went to put it in a trash bag when it slipped out of my hands and burst over my knee. My dog heard the noise, ran into the kitchen and attacked me out of panic. FML

I feel like its probably a chihuahua or other small breed. They tend to attack when they panic more than larger breeds. Sounds like you have some training to do either way.

I feel like if you're dog attacks you over a pumpkin breaking over you're knee, you didn't train it very well. So I don't have sympathy because a good dog that's trained right won't attack you.

21, Calm down please.

21, If a donkey was able to comment in FML I'd think it would be a very intelligent one.

Maybe it was trying to defend OP by killing the smushy orange beast.

dogs trained/untrained don't attack owners, it must have been trying to remove her from the scene.

maybe op recently adopted the dog and is still training them. even if not, op still doesn't deserve to get attacked by a dog.

Dang 15 and I'm usually really good with grammar! And to everyone else, I suppose they could still be training it, but even an untrained dog shouldn't attack the owner. And I kinda doubt the dog would be trying to get op out of the scene, with all of my dogs they would have attacked the remains of the pumpkin. Although I could be wrong, I'm not a dog phycologist

*psychologist hehe

Well, at least your dog is protective enough, you can sleep safe at night. Just train him not to panic at every loud noise in the house.

It's probably not very protective if the owner is the one attacked, that sounds more like aggression to me.

I wouldn't know, never owned a dog in my life. Guess I thought wrong.

I wouldn't have a dog that would attack me because it was panicking. I would get rid of it but that's just me.

Is that how you deal with the rest of your problems? Just out of curiosity.. If your child misbehaved do you just get rid of it? If you the owner/trainer can't be responsible for something you took upon yourself to watch over and love you shouldn't have gotten it in the first place.. That just applies overall in life; perhaps I'm over reacting to your statement but that's what I got from it.

Sorry OP, that must have created a real mess! On a side note, dogs are great companions and can be great for protection too- maybe you should look into some training classes.

I agree chihuahuas are very aggressive when they feel threatened.

Good guard dog!

I think you generally want a guard dog to attack people BESIDES you when there's trouble. Unless you like to play life on hard mode.

Why would you bring the mushy pumpkin inside instead of bringing a trash bag outside?

It's possible the pumpkin was out the front and the only way to get to the back bin is through the house, or some similar scenario

A dog shouldn't be panicking over a sound like that, not to the extent that it attacks it's owner. Sounds like you and your dog really need some training courses.
