I hope everyone had a Happy Monday!! If you are a frequent reader, you remember that a couple weeks ago, I was bitten by a dog. It’s still surreal to me, but it indeed happened. This is actually the outfit I had on and was in the park doing my photoshoot for. I can laugh about it now, but at no means was it funny. It was all but funny while I was going through the recovery process. So, let me begin…
I went to the park as I usually do at lunch time. There is usually noone even in the park most days. It’s a very small park and the park hosts a lot of small outdoor weddings because the scenery is just so nice and it has such an intimate setting. Anywho, I was actually done with my photoshoot and carrying my tripod and camera back to my car. I didn’t even think twice as I saw the gentleman walking towards me with his 2 Boston Terriers. I’m by no means afraid of dogs. I grew up with them and love dogs. I’ve had pit bulls (that were such babies and by no means mean at all) and I currently have a 6lb Shih Tzu, so as you can see, I am no stranger to dogs. So the guy walks past me and I say, “Hello” and he speaks back and the next think I know, his dog jumps on my leg and attacks me. I’m like, “What the hell? Your damn dog just bit me?” LOL Those were my exact words!!!! LOL I was just so shocked, because I have NEVER EVER EVER had this happen to me in my life. LOL (well… when I was younger a dog tried to bite me in my butt..LOL But thats another story for another day LOL LOL). The guy looks at me and says, “I’m sorry.” But his attitude was just like, what do you want me to do. He wasn’t as apologetic as he could have been. You know? So I say I need to get his information, he’s not cooperative. He was an elderly gentleman so I didn’t argue with him.. I was raised to treat my elders with respect. LOL So I just wrote down his license plate number. I drove back to work and immediately called the police. So the police comes out, takes my report and tells me I have to call Animal Control. I call Animal Control and they tell me because the bite happened in one county and I live in another county, I had to come into the location so they could verify the bite. So I drive to Animal Control and file a report with them. They tell me they will quarantine the dog for 10 days to be sure the dog doesn’t have Rabbies. They told me that they hadn’t had a Rabbies case in the state of GA in over 5 years. So that made me feel pretty good but I still thought to myself, I had the bad luck to get bitm it would be just my luck that this dog would have Rabbies, so I was still worried. I went to my Dr. and she checked out the bite and told me I had an infection and then I had to get on antibiotics. I also had to get a Tetnas shot in my arm that left my arm sore for 3 days. Then the antibiotics that I was on, had side effects and would you know, I experienced 95% of the side effects. I don’t know what was worse, the dog bite or the side effects from the antibiotic. Uggghhhh But today I can say I am back to 100% and you wouldn’t even have known I was bit by a dog if I didn’t tell you. LOL I know for sure, that was a day that I will never forget. I still have a love for dogs, but I will say… when it comes to Boston Terriers, I will be a little bit more reserved and give them that ::side eye:: and one better not come near me! LOL
So I bought 2 more shoes this weekend so my shoe count total is now up to 94. So I’ve been knocked back a few and have 82 more to go. I also actually bought 2 more pair online but I haven’t received those yet so I won’t count them until I physically have them!!! WOW! I guess you can call me a SHOEAHOLIC as well as a SHOPAHOLIC! hahahahahaha If you’d like, you can still participate in the challenge. You just will have a late start but will still have to wear all your shoes by February 14, 2012.
As you can tell I was having such a good time with this shoot too! LOL Oh yeah, the dog tore my pants too… I might have been more worried about my pants than my leg. LOL LOL
