Well it started out as a nice weekend until my dog bit a child riding on his bike yesterday evening. Dixe has never bitten anyone before, but decided to yesterday. As I was trying to get my daughter in the door she dodged out, I thought she was going to greet my husband and daughter(who had driven in behind me) when she turned and proceeded to chase the boy on bike. It was a puncture wound so the parents came over and told me they were going to take him to the doctors and if I would cover the costs. I told them that Dixie has had all her shots and if they thought it was warranted to go ahead and I would pay for the meds, if he was put on any. The father took it wrong and accused me of not being concerned for his son and then he commented "that if I wasn't willing to pay for visit then maybe he should call the police and report it."
Well to make a long story short the policeman came and wanted to know what happened, documented it and took a mug shot of my dog.
I don't know what is going to happen next but I'm sure I'll be fined, my husband threatened to get rid of the dog, so who knows what will happen next.
I haven't heard from the parents, the policeman said it was mostly superficial wound with one puncture so we'll see if they come by or maybe I'll try to find the boy who lives on the next street over and see how he is doing.
