    What a friggin day, just minding mu own business trimming hedges whn out of nowhere a dang German shepherd bites the hell out of my leg causing me to some how or another my hand hit the trimmer slicing it then to my leg right above the knee and finally stopped on my left boot, but I managed to pick it back up and trim his dang arse. (other than that I had a great day). Well I just needed to tell someone.

    No, I don't know whose dog it was, but wheni finally got to the docs office they thought I had been in a knife fight LOL, The local animal control caught the dog and so they are gonne test it for rabies, I really hope that thing aint got that mess. But I will know something in the morning though.

    That sounds like a rough day but I'm glad you basically okay.

    It's too bad for the dog though. You do know how they test for rabies don't you?

    Be sure and give the dog owner the bill. Hope all is well on your part.

    yeeowch, I can just imagine standing there with the trimmer humming and feeling like you are a human dog bone in a split second.
    Did they ever find out who owned the dog?

    Hopefully they did and they will be picking up the tab for all the medical expenses you have to endure. Did you get a tetnus shot also or were you up to date?
    I love animals but only love them when they love me. That dog should be put down.
    I wish you a fast recovery.
