    Default Remember the lady or gentleman that was bitten by a dog in Sos˙a?

    This is how serious it is.
    This was just reported on CNN
    http://www.cnn.com/2005/HEALTH/01/01....ap/index.html

    Be aware and take care!

    Serious indeed.

    That's why if the dog is not found and confirmed to be rabies free, you get the shots.

    Probably because it was a 'church bat.'

    Happy New Year to all.
    Blessings.

    DR dogs are scary, and not only the stray ones.

    For me, jogging in big cities is a fun way to do sightseeing. (Yeah, I know I am weird!). Wherever I am on this planet, I often take off jogging along the streets, getting a workout and having a look at the neighbourhoods at the same time.

    Well, I was jogging in Santo Domingo in August last year. As I passed a house, the dog living there disapproved of me passing by and it charged at me! Gracias por Dios, there was a metal fence between me and the dog but it didn't stop until it crashed into the fence, barking like mad.

    I was totally surprised and I fell to the ground, badly hurting me knee. It took several weeks for my wound to heal and today I have a scar on my knee to remind me of the lack of hospitality shown by DR dog owners.

    Are there no obedience schools for dogs in DR? Including their owners?

    I was bitten not long ago and have had the shots, every day for a week and I have my follow up shots over the next few weeks and months. Good news for me is that I've seen the dog around in these last few days so I know it's still alive but was not going to take any chance.

    Default Well, now you know

    At least you know that the dog is just a nasty canine, and not a rabid one! Tha must be comforting. Carry a baseball bat when he is around. It might teach him a lesson.

    Very Glad to hear you are all right.
