Evolution of a dog bite
I was violated by a canine at work about 2 1/2 weeks ago!
It was a traumatic experience where two dogs turned aggressive on me. Luckily, one was only a barker! But the one that took a bite made it count. I'd like to claim that it was a huge, fierce pit bull or Rottweiler or something. Actually, it was just a mid-size mutt. I've decided that bite force is not dependent on body size though, because this bruise on my leg is hanging on 2 1/2 weeks later! Animal control verified that the dog is current on his vaccinations, so I basically just had a tetanus shot, antibiotics, and ointment/bandaids as my treatment. Besides not being able to sit comfortably for a several days, I suppose I came out fairly well. There are plenty of things to be thankful for as far as what else could have happened or where else I could have been bitten!
