To make a long story short, I was bit by a dog! It was a jack russell pure bred. Not a very friendly dog at that! This happened on August 14th. This is what happened...
Now the healing process has gone really well because I listened to the doc for the most part. It looked like this as of August 25th. Now today it is healing even more, but I'm having more pain in it now than I did a week ago. Seems it is still healing in the inside according to the doc.
The dog as quarantined for 10 days and proven healthy, THANKFULLY! But I am still baffled at why he did what he did! He was not provoked in any way. Maybe it was because I didn't acknowledge him when he approached me, I just don't know, but it was scary! I've always been a pretty trusting person with dogs. But I don't think I am any more! And this one is only about 25 pounds. So he isn't very large either. Suffice it to say, I've learned a lesson that even the smaller ones can be mean!
