Stupid Little Dog!
Today was the best day for a bike ride! With a temperature of 75 degrees, I was finally able to go out with just cycling shorts and a jersey! Oh happy day! Well, until I got to the hill on Spruce Street. A little white dog came running down the driveway barking, and he was way out in front of the owner, a woman who was walking down the driveway. The dog ran into the road, and was running alongside me, barking, when suddenly he bit me! I quickly jumped off my bike, and put my bike between the dog and myself because he was trying to get to me, so I was constantly moving the bike around to protect myself. The woman called out "He's not a vicious dog." She finally was able to call him off, and I hollered out "You should know he just bit me." "You should have gotten off your bike" she said! Oh right, it's my fault! When I got home I called the doctor, and he said that I needed to go back and see evidence that the dog has had its rabies vaccination. After I showered I got dressed and went back, to the house and had the owner show me the rabies tag. The doctor also said that a Tetanus shot was a good idea, and so I went to a urgent care center and got that done as well. So it appears that I will live... :-) OK, so no more whining...
