<div class="quote-block">PALM CITY, Fla - Doogie is resting comfortably at the veterinarian's office.<br><br>
The 27-pound Westie survived an attack by an alligator at least six-feet long.<br><br>
It happened Thursday evening behind Gary Murphy's Palm City home.<br><br>
"I'm right here, standing right here and I hear a yipe," says Murphy, standing behind his home which sits in a marsh along the St. Lucie River. "I look down. The gator's right here with Doogie in his mouth."<br><br>
Murphy didn't hesitate, after all Doogie is more than a dog, he's a constant companion.<br><br>
"I must have cleared this by a foot," says Murphy, referring to the rope railing that runs along the dock. "I had loafers on and I hit the back of that gator. It was like jumping on a pile of rocks. But when I did, I caught him right behind the head here, I hit him here and his mouth opened and Doogie took off and the gator turned around and went under the boat and out he went."</div>

Alligators are pretty docile, crocodiles are the ones that will attack people. The gator probably didn't think the "meal" (sorry to be crass but gators are carnivores) was worth the battle.
