The dog days of summer:
Then today, I was simply walking into a nursery to buy a bougainvillea plant for Steve for our 17th anniversary. There was a very large dog walking around in the garden. I had met this dog before when I had come in a few weeks ago with Clancy. I still don’t know exactly what happened, but I was simply looking at some plants and this dog came running towards me. The first thought that ran through my mind was, “Don’t be scared, he’s just running over here to greet you.”
No. He went straight for my thigh and bit me! I was so shocked I just grabbed my leg and stood there. The dog made a circle around the tree and started coming for me again. I looked at the owner and said, “He just bit me. Get him.” I went into the bathroom and discovered that three teeth had punctured the surface and there was already a huge bruise and swelling. So, anyway, off to the Emergency Room again. Two shots, a prescription of antibiotics, and a big bandage later, I’m sitting here writing this week’s journal entry.
