Update on the dog

I just got a visit from the Animal Control lady. I filled out a written statement to add to the report. She’s going to have to take the dog to quarantine for ten days of observation it sounds like. I just emailed in photos of the damage to my hand and have to do a drive by to get the address. I have a 10 day supply of antibiotics and more soaking of the wound to do. At least life isn’t boring, right?

  1. When our dog bit my son, they let us quarentine the dog at home, we could only let her out for a bathroom break….. far different circumstances though. Spencer fell on her, and she reacted… a bit different than being attacked by the dog.

    Sorry about the hand, hopefully it will heal up well.

  2. Dave – See, that scenario totally makes sense. This was random dog attacking people on the sidewalk. So, while I feel bad that Animal Control is going to take the dog for a bit, on the other hand, it shouldn’t be attacking people walking on the sidewalk so…

    Emily – I’d initially thought it was a puncture wound because it looked really gross and like a hole. When the doctor cleaned it out I learned a new word – “avulsion.” 🙂 I got a tetanus shot (which, honestly, I wasn’t sad about because every time I cut myself on a dirty sharp at work I think “I should get a tetanus shot sometime soon”) and am on Augmentin. So I feel like bonus – if I have a sinus infection it’s totally going to hit that too. Maybe I should thank the dog? 😉

    Plus, REALLY COOL Batman band-aids twice a day!
