The daughter of Irish rocker and Live Aid hero Bob Geldof was walking her pet Parpy when he was bitten by a Staffordshire bull terrier.
Detailing the upsetting incident in a series of Twitter posts, she writes: "Parpy got bitten by a staffie (Staffordshire) in the park! This staff had a big stick, parpy went over to help him carry it and he pinned him down and savaged his leg!! Parpy cant walk on way to vet (sic)! It was so horrible. I hate these people who think that training their dogs to be aggressive & violent is ok. Sick. Poor parpy is whimpering.
"He has a heart of gold & only wanted to help the evil staffie carry his stick. Vet will fix his leg but it shouldnt (sic) have happened. Furious."
Geldof's pooch had his leg bandaged by the vet and the star, who is due to give birth later this month, assured fans he would be just fine.
She tweeted: "Thanks everyone 4 ur (sic) kind well wishes to Parpy chops! He had two shots at the vet & didnt (sic) make a peep, he is going to rest & will be fine!"
