I don’t think that childhood would be the same if you hadn’t suffered some sort of animal bite. Cat, Dog, bird something. Yesterday Alexis suffered hers! She and her Best Friend were outside playing when the dog approached growling, so the girls took off running! Needless to say, that probably made the dog more excited and he jumped on her, knocked her down, and bit her is three different places!
I really don’t know which is worse, looking at Alexis all banged up, or telling her Daddy what had happened. I think the Daddy part was the worse! I am so thankful that the dog did not attack her face, for I would have been bailing him out of Jail! Happy to report that the owner, and the dog are still among the living!
Surprisingly, the dog was a Collie and some other mix. It must have been the other mix that engaged the dogs, for I know Collie’s are one of the most docile, sweet dogs on the planet!
Thank Goodness that she has the love for little dogs, especially now, so that she will not be warped about the nature of dogs. I explained to her that animals have their own personalities, and likes and dislikes, so for what ever reason, this dog did not like Alexis.
I remember when Katelyn was a baby, my mother’s Rottweiler hated Katelyn! We never let that dog anywhere near her, for the time he jumped at her through the glass of the sliding glass door, was enough for me!
Happy to report, no stitches, and the dog had all his shots including rabies, so no needles for Ali.
