Do Ur thing & never apologize for being U! My unusual reaction to just being bitten by a dog...

Written by tonibaloni75 on 5/17/2012 3:04 PM | COMMENTS (20)

Talk about being on the wrong place at the wrong time…I had the most perfect of mornings…Well, didn’t start as the most perfect, but it wasn’t bad either…let’s look on the bright side… I went for a walk in the woods, listening music & thinking restless thoughts…I wasn’t happy about something, but then after an hour of beautiful scenery & songs I love…the last 20 min in the preserve I was singing, swaying my hips, skipping & twirling around, jumping high & trying to touch the leaves overhead, or catching those fluffy things flying off the trees these days….The name is on the tip of my tongue, but I’m still too stunned by what happened to be able to think calmly… I was going to blog, spill my emotions in words to preserve the moment. Hopefully inspire U, because no matter what, life is good! Happiness is a choice. U can decide to feel miserable & be a sniveling cry-baby or U can go & change something!

Then I got bitten by a dog…My neighbor’s, she was coming home, we were politely saying hi. I personally don’t like the woman. She gave be a weird vibe from the very beginning. There R some people that draw me their way & some I just prefer to keep at a distance…hi & bye is enough…Later I learned my first assessment was accurate, so I have been, friendly, but distant. She unlocked her door, I don’t know what happened…it unfolded too fast. But not that fast she couldn’t stop it. Her dog came out. He is a big & dangerous... I’ve heard he'd bitten other dogs… What puzzles me is, he used to be a very nice playful dog. Anyway, I was waking away, so I don’t know what really happened, but all of a sudden he was coming at me, bit me on the back of my right inner thigh, right above my knee…was she stoned? She didn’t do anything, then he bit me on my left arm... Didn’t draw blood, thankfully but left teeth marks…. She’s like “Did he bit U? Sorry Toni but is just a scratch…” & went inside…Now I heard from a 3rd, interested party, she said he jumped on me & didn’t bite. Hey, I know the difference. I don’t lie & I took pictures!

Now I am a pretty nice person. Too nice & naïve for my own good…But U should have heard me talking to myself…F-ing S*** W.T.F. was that? Sorry for offending Ur sensibility, but I have just been bitten by a dog…Cut me some slack…I need some aroma therapy…Where R my Fabric Softener Sheets Snuggle Exhilarations I talked about in my blog yesterday? *panting* Where, where…? Said in the voice of Hadley Lamar “Where is my froggy? Where is my froggy?...Give it to me, hurry. Quick!...*panting* That was a close one…” Hadley Lamar...bathtub of my fave's in Blazing Saddles Now how can I be upset after that scene…? My favorite is “My mind is a raging torrent, flooded with rivulets of thought, cascading into a waterfall of creative alternatives…Coldarn it Mr. Lamar U use Ur tongue prettier than a $ 20 …” *chuckling wholeheartedly*…I think I’m very stupid & naïve. Easy to be taken advantage of & played with…But that’s who I am. I’m a loyal friend, carrying a hopeful, believing in the good in people soul… My loyalty given freely & sometimes undeservedly to people who don’t appreciate it. I lower my standards & give second chances, in the name of a relationship or an amity… only to be thrown back in my face…unwanted! I’m really dumb! Grow up some backbone woman! Well, I believe WW helped me change into a wonderful, vivacious, sparkling person & whoever in my life doesn’t see or cherish it is a moron! Because having me should be a privilege!

“Through humor, you can soften some of the worst blows life delivers. And once U find laughter, no matter how painful your situation might be, U CAN SURVIVE IT” It’s time we stop settling for less tha n we truly deserve cuz we R darn special!!! U R more important than U realize! And don’t U forget it!

P.S. Thanks for the concern! Went to the doctor, filed a police report...She claimed it didn't bite me, that nothing happened. The police didn't think so. It was a long day! Hugs!

    My goodness! Im sorry to hear that you were bitten. I'm also sorry that your neighbor/dog owner didn't care enough to control the situation. Or at least try. Good grief. At least pretend to care, right? Either way, you're safe without too much damage and you filed a police report. Good! Hope you're feeling better now. Big hugs!

    I am so sorry that you were bitten. That happened to me while I was out jogging! Many years and pounds ago. I had a friend who was a policeman. He went over to this guy's house to talk with him. He claimed it was my fault that I was running by his house!! Really? To this day I'm leery of dogs that come at me. Hugs Toni!!

    Holy **** , totally get it, I as much wrote on Trooworlds blog before about the same exact thing, she was going through a tough neighbor, I think it was Chris...either that or BabyGirl cant remember. It was a German Shepard, and we had to run every time we got out of our cars to get to the door, and they never cleaned up his poop it was nasty. We called Police, and landlord, and just gave up and moved afterf only 3 months. Couldnt live like that...Hope she moves out, she's bad news

    Just catching up with you today. So sorry you got bit by a dog. That pet owner is very irresponsible, not to mention rude. I'm glad you got checked by your doctor. It is just unbelievable how that woman reacted.

    I wasn't going to write when I saw how many comments there were already. The WW community is wonderfully supportive! I'll never forget the 3x I was bitten by dogs in my life (all in childhood or adolescence). It is an unpleasant, visceral experience. You took the right steps afterwards. Your neighbor sounds creepy. I wonder if there's a self-defense spray that would work if the dog gets loose again.

    Hi Toni, Glad u r ok. I love dogs but I do not trust them. Never turn your back on a dog. I had a beautiful yellow lab who we had for 15 yrs. She was the best dog ever BUT I never told anyone she would not bite. You never know. How rude of that lady not to be responsible for the actions of her dog. STAY AWAY FROM HER AND HER PET. Glad u r ok.

    so glad you sought medical treatment even if the skin wasn't broken & filed a police report. If this were a child that large dog could have done some damage! your filing a report may or may not help someone in the future; I say the dog is getting aggressive & we have to ask why?
