Chester’s First Traffic Accident


The post title says it all. It happened 2 days ago. I was busy removing weeds from the pots outside near the left gate while I let Chester walk freely outside near me. This is something I’ve done many times before. However that day he decided to sniff something at the area near the end of the right gate. When I realized a motorcycle is coming our way, I was too far to stop him.

You see, my dog has a thing with motorcycle. He loves barking at ‘em and I think if I don’t stop him he’ll chase after the motorcycle as well. Always have to hold him tightly by the leash whenever a motorcycle is zooming pass us. This is something he learned from Miss Zebra a long time ago.

I was so hoping that Chester will remain still and just bark at the motorcycle which fortunately happens to be my neighbor carrying his kid. But nope. He barked and then lunged at the motorcycle as if he’s on a suicide mission. He hit somewhere between my neighbor’s leg and the 2nd tire. I certainly watched the incident in slow-motion. As if the 1 second accident is equivalent to 5 seconds long. Right after that I thought he’ll be yelping in pain with broken legs.

BUT nope…

He still stand strong and barking away. I dragged him away by his neck while apologizing to my neighbor. Checked his paws and face for any visible scar/bruises and whether there’s any limping but none. He doesn’t seem to be shaken as well. The only thing I found is some black oil mark at his right paws. That’s it. What a miracle! Fhewwww man… fheww fheww fhewww

Chester, it’s totally my fault. Sorry for dangering your life. I learned my lesson. :(

    Actually, sometimes i also worried if my dogs one day bite the visitors come to my house. Hmmm…

    There is one case where a naughty boy came to my house and throw stones to my dog which my dog already tight at the tree. Then after few hits, the boy feels shiok and came nearer to my dog. suddenly my dog bite him… Just little hurt for the boy la.. but he really cried so loud le… hmmmm… We feel sorry to him and the dog too.. the dog also hurt hit by stone…

      Actually I’m not worry about Chester biting people because I know he’ll never do that. He is such a good nature dog. Even when he looks ‘ferociously’ gruesome barking at you, its his way of teasing you. Just as you near him, he’ll began to sniff you and then either lick you or hump you. LOL

      I always think that dogs that have been challenged (like your dog case)/abused/suffer emotional breakdown will show aggression.

      Thank God the boy was okay ya.

    I believe most dogs will bark at passing by motorcycles, if not chasing them. Thanks goodness he is alright! He is a strong boy now, haha!

      Yeah most dogs will do that but it’s so dangerous. Most of them know how to avoid it but my dog just went and ‘bang’ at it. Lack experience! Hahaha
