Hmmm Were you ever bitten by a Dog?

Well I was once. One of those nice little golden retrievers with the long ears - I am not using the correct breed name possibly but I was cycling my bicycle and I see this dog sitting on the footpath minding its own business and just as I pass he runs towards me and grabs my ankle.

For such a small dog it had a vice like grip and I was in excruciating pain. I usually wear a track suit when cycling my bike but this day I was wearing heavy jeans and luckily the dog bit on the seam my leg would have been shredded otherwise.

The little bugger refused to release his grip too until I had screamed for a suitably long period.

I was always attacked by dogs on the police motorbike when patrolling rough estates. I could feel them trying to bite on my leather boots but much to their frustration I used to simply ignore them.

Re: Were you ever bitten by a Dog?

when i was 9 i was in my nans garden and back then the fences were those low wire things.
anyway 3 gardens down i saw a rotweiler staring at me so i shouted "what u looking at" and before i knew it it had jumped every garden fence, had knocked me over and lightly bit my arm
i kicked it in the nuts and ran indoors.

that was back when "oh well a dog just bit me"
if it happend today it would be distroyed

Re: Were you ever bitten by a Dog?

Yes, went to a party and being a dog lover started to play with househoolders dog.....it bit my face, covering nose to chin Thankfully, only a nosebleed and small cut on the chin was the result......sheepdogs are a little exciteable

Still love dogs but you need to knowthem before winding them up

Yes, never bother your dog, even if she's YOUR dog...

Oh, and she did have a VERY short fuse...

Re: Were you ever bitten by a Dog?

My other half used to own Basenji's, which have very strong pack instincts.

The older dog used to think that anyone in the house was part of her pack, and was fair game. When I moved in with her (my other half - not the dog ) she (the dog ) was not happy about it, and wasted no time in putting me in my place (i.e. at the bottom of the pack).

In the course of these "lessons" I received a number of serious and semi-serious "dental warnings" from her.

As a dog-lover you should have known that sheepdogs have a very short fuse

Re: Were you ever bitten by a Dog?

From when I was about 4 to 18 we had a jack russell terrier who we all loved and was the most friendly dog anyone could hope to have - at least with the family.
However he was like a nazi when it came to strangers. People cycling past our house used to walk past in terror as he really hated cyclists and your only chance was to walk past nonchalantly.
He also chased cars all his life and generally kicked ass around our neighbourhood.
He was even shot once - but luckily only with a pellet gun.
He regarded biting people as his right and sometimes I was horrified by what he did. It would never be tolerated these days.
He just disappeared one Sunday and was never seen since - I always hoped it was not someone who took him to do him harm - more than likely he was killed fighting with other dogs - but we will never know for sure.

Re: Were you ever bitten by a Dog?

On the leg by an alsatian (German Shepard) when I was quite small, and I still have the scars of the teethmarks.

When the nurse at the clinic asked me where I'd been bitten I replied "Round the road at a neighbours"


...............believe it or not, that is a true story

Re: Were you ever bitten by a Dog?

I was running to the ice cream van when i was 9 as you do when my neighbours dog jumped the fance and bit my leg, so i kicked it in the face which was not a good idea as it bit my arm as it went for my face. I still have the big scars. Oh and by the way 2 days later it bit the postman in the [email protected]@locks and was given the big jag!!

Re: Were you ever bitten by a Dog?

yep, i was 8 and riding my bike when a black labrador ran up and took two massive bites out of leg, quite scary at the time, got home and told my dad, he was fuming, took me straight to the docs for a tetnus, and the stupid receptionist said the surgery was closing come back tomorrow, with that dad marched me straight down into the docs surgery and demanded he see me now, the odc did and the receptionist was sacked on the spot, result i'd say.
Still absolutely love dogs btw.

Re: Were you ever bitten by a Dog?

I was bitten twice by dogs during my spotty youth during my early morning newspaper delivery round... the 1st was a brindled Boxer & the 2nd was an Afgan.

On both occasions the dog belonged to a new customer on my route and came rushing up whilst I was cycling along, snapping at my ankles. Fortunately they were not serious bites and I found that by stopping the bike they were quite happy to be friendly with me..... I guess its just the bike they didnt like
