Dog Bite

Sorry. Its been way too long.

So, on July 16th I was bitten on the leg by a dog.

Bad. Like an attack. Ouch. Bled like a stuck pig.

Lots of shots and antibiotics over the next 30 days to follow.

Much better now.

Except for the new fear of dogs.

And bruises and scars.


I like cats much more now.


  1. Not a good experience, especially when not expecting one..
    Hope you get more trusting of good doggies. Like people there are good and better, and real bad....

  2. You look sweet. Pooch couldn´t help himself. Keith must understand.

  3. Ouch - bummer that! My wife was bit by a dog and has the same reaction as you now (to dogs). All still we have had a couple over the years - but this does not change her general fear of strange dogs - Sad really.

  4. I love dogs. But I have learned to be wary both south and north of the border. Most bad behavior is owner-caused. But that does not matter when the teeth are sunk in the calf.

  5. I am so sorry to hear about you being bitten. How awful. I can understand how you feel. Take care of yourself.

  6. That is absolutely awful Chrissy! So sorry. I was bitten once by a Seattle Seahawk's German shepherd. The dog snuck up from behind and got me right above the elbow. Fortunately, I didn't have any complications from it. Glad you're better. Take care!

  7. Thanks Everyone.

    I am feeling much better now that I am off all the heavy antibiotics.

    I still love the doggies, but I think that I will always be a bit more cautious now.

    P.S. a cat I am pet sitting for bit me a few days ago...geez, cant a girl get a break?

  8. ooh, really sorry to hear about that, but i am glad you are better. I have started taking a baggie of dog food with me when i am out on new old bike, you never know. senor says not good, you are feeding the bears, but i do not want them feeding on me.LL

  9. Oh my! I got a scare once from dogs that left me forever leery of big dogs. Ironically, I was living in Mexico at the time. Take care.

  10. I am so sorry about that darling. There are some dogs that scare the bejesus out of me. There is this 1 house with 2 HUGE German shepherds that I just know if they ever got past that little gate would mall my kids and it is petrifying.

    I have taught my kids that if they want to touch a dog- especially here in Mexico- that they 1st need to ask me, 2nd need to ask the owner and 3- need to ask the dog.

    They have been told on more then 1 occasion that the dog does not like to be touched. A good lesson because touching a dog that does not want to be touched will get you a very unhappy response.

    But remember that there are many wonderful dogs.
