Damn. I remember being chased by this unchained dog (pitbull I think) my final year of college. Fortunately found a house with an unlocked patio door. I did get mauled by my family guard dog (chained up 80% of the time as is the Nigerian way) when I was 5 or so. Still have scars on my shoulder from it. Needed rabies shots for a while.

There were many beautiful women on the L train this morning. It was a delight for the senses.

from a sensory perspective, we had very different rides this morning. L train can be weird like that.


I've started to see some people* over and over again on my commute. Never happened on the 4-5-6. I need to figure out what the deal is with this asian girl I've seen a few times. Big pink hair, Tokyo-couture dress style, really tall shoes. I saw her last week carrying a giant tube of something (probably art). Someone could tell me that she's either a freak in the sack, or that she's a never nude, and either scenario seems plausible.











* Yeah, it's limited to hot women.

That is a really terrible thing to happen! Will the jacket, err, I mean, you be OK?

Seriously, though, that is really awful. Was the dog on a leash? Did you get bit protecting your family or did the dog go directly for you?

Suit jacket will be fine once the blood is cleaned off. The dog was on a lease and went straight for me. I can only speculate that the dog attacked because when it emerged onto street from side door, I was standing right there. But I don't speak dog so I can't really know.
Family was pretty freaked put though - dog came from my right; they were on my left..

What suit were you wearing? Maybe the dog really hates drape.

Good thing you were there, though. It sounds like you and your jacket really did save the day, even if inadvertently.

Dopey, sounds like you received medical attention, but I would keep that wound unbound, open to the air, and as clean as possible until you're sure there's no infection. I've seen dog bites turn ugly including one fellow who developing sepsis from a tiny puncture that he bandaged.

 

Sorry this happened to you.

I know. I am worried. But following advice.
But that is why no sutures - fear of sealing something bad in.

I had no idea this could be so serious.
post #10016 of 11479
very likely no big deal in the end. But right now, a PITA. Shredded skin is easily infected.

from your dog expertise, any thoughts on what may have caused this? Spooked bulldog? Kids and dogs are generally meh ideas, but dopey doesn't strike me as being child sized.

a friend brought his 1 year old over on Sunday, and our pit bull was fine with it. More of a "guys, 'the fuck is this little thing? Not interested", but overall it was fine. It was closely monitored minor interaction between child and dog.

It will be fine.

Who knows? Bulldogs are pretty stupid and this one could have been set off by any number of things.

Few people make an effort to curb their dogs these days. And don't get me started on those retractable leashes. What folly those are.
post #10020 of 11479
retractible leashes are a Florida (old people) thing. I rarely see them in NY, even with the old Mexican women and their Chihuahuas or Maltese that live in my neighborhood.



a semi-active dog + a 15' lead means they're in the road and into a car.
