Jordyn's Dog Bite

Four weeks ago, I got a text from my sister asking if we had bandaids.  It was two days before we left for vacation {which I'll post about one of these days!} which my sister was going on with us to help with the kids, so she was already in town and watching the kids for us that day.  I didn't think much of it and responded where they were.

I couldn't get a great photo showing how deep it was.  {All iPhone photos}
About 10 minutes later I get a phone call from my {upset} mom saying that Jordyn was okay, but that she was bit by the neighbor dog.  I ran out of the office and flew home to take her to Urgent Care.  At Urgent Care they gave me the option of stitching it, but we both decided it would probably be more traumatizing to do that instead of just letting it heal on it's own.  Also, since it was on the back of her calf, I wasn't as concerned with a scar.  They also sent us home with antibiotics.

We joked that she did this just so that mama would let her have a sucker {something very much not allowed on a normal day}
 To say the homeowners didn't respond well would be an understatement, but since I have nothing nice to say, I'll say nothing at all about them.  Other than... ANYONE that is a pet owner should take responsibility of their pet's actions {as you have to with children's actions} and if you don't {or won't} you shouldn't have a pet at all!  {/rant}

-------------------------------------------------

It should also be noted that it's healing beautifully and she handled all of it so well!  :)

  1. Oh my goodness! I'm glad she's healing, but I'm so sorry you all had to go through that.

    I agree 100% that you must take responsibility or else not be a pet owner!

  2. Ugh, that is awful. I hate that people think that their dogs are angels and have done nothing wrong. I have a cocker spaniel who is the sweetest and doesn't have any teeth, but I know that if she ever did bite someone, I'd at least acknowledge that she did it! Not saying I'd have her put down, but I could at least offer to pay their doctor bill!
