I have lovely neighbours, beyond lovely neighbours, wouldn't swap them for the world neighbours.
But on Monday we had a bit of an incident.
As they often do, next door had taken in a parcel for me (this postal service isn't why I love them, but it helps an Internet shopaholic like myself). Isobel and I popped round to collect the parcel.
Their little dog Toffee came running out and knocked Isobel to the ground and while he didn't bite her face he did open his mouth.
I scooped little girl up, but for the next hour she kept pointing to her face and saying 'dog obel'. She even told her daddy.
Now, I'm not cross, I don't think the dog is dangerous (though I do get the fear if I think of possible outcomes - mutilation and the like), my neighbours are mortified; I am actually more concerned about making sure isobel isn't afraid of dogs,
We will pop next door and see toffee again.
Can anyone offer any advice? Please not about the dog, no muzzles etc, just about making sure my little girl remains phobia free.
