Thank you guys. Truth be told, I have loved this Rottie since even before I got Wally. And if the fight had been the two of them going at it, I think I would be pissed but that's it. But Wally was NOT fighting back, he was just trying to stand up (he didn't run after we got them separated, just stood there getting licked by the girls). There is NO WAY Wally wouldn't have fought back. And he didn't. Obviously he isn't well and D knew it and took that time to take him on. I think if it wasn't for Wally's 2" collar he would definitely have puncture wounds. D only had a good grip on him when he was shaking him. When he got him on the ground (his collar was then pushed up behind his ears) he was just more holding him there. I think D even freaked himself out with what he did.
But now, now I don't know if I can ever look at him again. If it was a two way fight I wouldn't have an issue, but it wasn't. Now I'm also afraid to bring Blue home with Wally sick (though Blue has never shown signs of DA even slightly), just because I don't want to stress Wally out at all.
Here's hoping it's not cancer and rather something else weird and we'll be done with this in a month or two. It'd better be. Otherwise I'll have to be committed.
