When the dog bites
(When the bee stings)
When he's feeling sad
We take him for some of his favorite things
so then he won't feeeeeel so bad
I've been hearing Julie Andrews singing in my head ever since
Brad was bitten by our neighbor's dog a few weeks ago
(on April 26th to be exact)
I've been wanting to post on my blog ever since
but instead you'll be inundated with several retro-posts
so I can catch up on my journaling.
Thanks for indulging me.
Speaking of indulging...
some soft serve chocolate ice cream (for me)
and a root beer float (for Brad)
were our first stop in trying to boost our boy's spirits
after the dog-biting incident.
Sadly for Brad, he's always been a little skittish of canines anyway.
I know...I know... that's probably why the dog bit him
or so I've been told...
That dogs smell fear and so they sometimes bite.
Sad day for my boy...and that dang dog is BIG!
[applicable side note: I was chased down and bitten by a German Shepherd when I was 10.
I've been pretty scared of dogs myself ever since---
A multi-generational curse.
My neighbors were mortified.
I think they came over to check on Brad over a dozen times.
The dog is getting old
and cranky, they said.
A kid left the gate open and big old cranky dog got out.
Brad shrieked and jumped and the dog did too--
unfortunately jumped ON Brad's arm.
Thank goodness for root beer floats,
for people who keep their dog's shots current,
For me, it's a new pair of shoes ;)
Brad loves ice cream
and goofy novelty tee-shirts
Ps. Anyone ever been bitten by a dog? Your kids?
Not you bitten by your kids? LOL!
But your kids bitten by a dog?
Suggestions for helping kids overcome canine fear?
