MORAGA -- Sid, a 3-year-old black Labrador, did not whine or whimper when he walked inside on Feb. 4, said owner Ellen Gunderson.

Squinting up at her, Gunderson wondered if the family dog had perhaps rubbed his head in poison oak near the family's home on Wickham Road. It wasn't until she looked closer and saw blood oozing from Sid's right eye that she knew something was wrong.

Gunderson rushed the family dog to a local veterinarian, who looked at Sid's swollen eye, pulled the eyelid back and removed a small, metallic pellet.

"Someone shot my dog!" Gunderson said her husband yelled as the vet removed the shiny bead.

Moraga police said they are still investigating the incident and did not name any suspects.

Sid is expected to make a full recovery, though he is on a steady dose of antibiotics and steroids. He also still has a swollen eye, but Gunderson said Sid has not once acted out of sorts.

"Yes, he was not his usual self, he was in pain," Gunderson said of the first few days following the shooting. "But it wasn't like he was in bed, whining and telling someone to bring him a glass of water."

The family said most neighbors have been upset about the shooting, and the Gunderson family is concerned that the culprit has yet to step forward.

Gunderson said she has moved on from being shocked about Sid's injury to utter outrage. Gunderson said she and several of her neighbors wonder why anyone would shoot Sid, who can often be found lounging on the family's driveway in the neighborhood cul-de-sac.

"He is the dog that sits at the top of the hill, not a terror that goes barreling down the street barking," Gunderson said. "He is a good dog."

Gunderson also admitted she is worried about her dog's and her family's safety.

"It's a little bit disheartening and concerning that someone would be willing to do this to an animal," she said. "There are young kids in neighborhood. What would happen if this happened to a kid? I don't think anyone wants to live in a place where you are fearful of your neighbors."
