My wife and I have lived in Ahwatukee for nearly 27 years. About 8 a.m. on the morning of Friday, May 31 my wife, Barbara, and I stood in our driveway on Cherokee Street when our Yorkie spotted a man on a bicycle with two leashed mid-sized dogs on the street in front of our house. “Tootie,” our Yorkie, which I had just unleashed, ran toward the dogs. One of the two dogs broke his leash and took off after our dog, on to our property. Our dog ran for her life! The dog owner chased after his dog and tried to get our puppy out of his mouth. He managed to get to his dog once and then his dog ran away and attacked our dog again, swinging her around like she was a rag doll. We all screamed and hollered. After the dog owner got his dog to drop our dog, my wife and I took her inside and Barbara gave her a bath at which time injuries were discovered on her body. Barbara took our dog to a vet who treated her with stitches and antibiotics. Friday evening through Saturday Barb held Tootie. On Saturday afternoon Tootie took a turn for the worse. She was rushed to a pet hospital in Gilbert where doctors tried in vain to save her life. She died in my wife’s arms on Sunday morning.
