I was bit today by my customer's neighbor's dog. Nothing real big, probably 35lbs, and a mutt. However he sure packed a bite. I'd seen him earlier this year and last year and no problems, just some barking. He's not even supposed to be out but they let him out or he gets out. This customer is in a line of folks with 1 acre+ properties and there is a big road that goes between him and the dog's owner. So the dog had to come WAY over ( about 30-40 feet) off his property to get me. I was so pissed off as he was barking at me but I didn't charge at him or pay him much ming. Next thing I know he got me good on the side of my left leg next to the knee. Didn't think it was much of a wound as I didn't see blood soaking my jeans but when I went to my truck to pull the pant leg up to take a peak, it was really nasty. Haven't had hardly any dog bites in my life so I wasn't used to it. He marked me up really good with a big gash in the skin and other small indentions from the smaller teeth as well as bruising from the force/pressure. I'm sure it would've been much worse had I only shorts on or if he'd gotten my bare skin. The jeans probably will save me from having to get stitches. I may post some picks tommorow. I was gonna let it slide til I saw how bad it was. I went to the neighbor ( followed by the harrassing dogs the whole way) and told her what happenned. She was more shocked at the bite marks than the fact he did it. She put something like neosporin and a big bandaid over it. However I should've washed it with soap and water 1st ( I later found out ). She said he had all his shots for rabies, ect and that she was VERY sorry. I told her "I hope I don't need stitches". I'm sure if I did she woulda got the bill. I just found out I need 2 root canals which cost $3200 ( $1800 after insurance ) so I was not in the mood to fit the bill for more medical stuff, especially when it's someone else's fault. I really wanted to kick that blasted animal in the gutt or neck after what it did to me. But my kicks probablyi aren't quite up to the quickness of a dog's reflexes. Now my fist is another story, but then I'd be risking damage to my fingers and I need them for my trimmer and occasionally for my mower Thank God it wasn't a Pit or something much bigger like a Mastive! Do u guys have any story/s to relate?
