Here is the pic that I submitted of Chi. Am going to try to find a great pic that I have of Storm (our old Pit) and Jordan asleep on the couch together when Jordan was still in diapers, to submit, it's priceless.
Guess what? I was yelled at for putting my face down by the dog while it was eating!!!!!!!! No going over & telling Gene that Chip needed to be destroyed, no telling Gene that he had a vicious dog. I was the one in trouble!!
I have suffered 2 serious bites, one when I was three (did the same thing you did with my Aunt's old dog Tad) and once when I was 16. Both times it was my fault. My immediate family just could not understand why I didn't want to sue over the bite when I was 16. The family's insurance company offered to pay for all medical bills to include the reconstructive surgeries and a small settlement ($1,200.00).
Freckles was an adult -but not old- Aussie that was owned by a friend of a friend. Although I had been around him quite a bit it took him several visits to warm up to me and I knew that he had bit before and he didn't like strangers. So what do I do? My friend and I went over to his house (to visit his cutie owner David) late on a weekend night, Freckles was laying in his chair and the idiot I am leaned over the back of the chair and him to pet him, waking him up, startling him and ultimately loosing my left cheek. I swear I didn't feel anything and think I went into immediate shock. I stood up and David passed out. My friend - Mindy - was white as a ghost, I wondered what the heck was wrong with them LOL. Then I went to the bathroom to see how bad this little nip was. My face looked like something from a horror film, a gash from the corner of my left eye to the bottom corner of the right side of my mouth. Just below my left cheek bone to the right corner of my mouth was ripped all the way through causing that side of my face to just kind of fold over... Really gross stuff. But it was my fault. Should I petition to ban all herding dogs without tails now?
