Well this happened when I was running yesterday and now my triathlon training is currently on the shelf for the time being.
I went out for my long run yesterday and was just about 3/4 mile from my house when I passed one of my neighbors who was outside with two dogs. I don't know them or anything but as I was running by the dogs came after me, one was little and one looked like a black lab. My neighbor immediately said oh don't worry these dogs are very nice and won't bite. About one second later the black dog came up from behind me and bit my leg just above my ankle. I looked down to see blood pouring out of my leg. The neighbor started freaking out and asked me to come in her yard so she could take me home. So I started walking in her yard and she never got control of the dog. I was keeping an eya on the dog but I was talking to my neighbor and out of nowhere the dog bit my calf on the same leg. I never saw him coming at all the second time. This wound was much worse, since now there were three large holes in my calf and a couple other puncture wounds on the other side. All in all I have about 8 or 9 puncture wounds on my leg, and I might have some tendon damage. And to top it all off the dog was not current on its shots so now I have to play the wait and see game while the dog is being quarantined. The hospital contacted animal control and they've taken care of that side of it. It was just a lovely day, but right now I'm just trying to keep it clean so it won't get infected and I'm going to see a surgeon next week to find out about any other internal damage.
After I got a good look at the dog it looked like a lab/rottweiler mix but I'm not sure about that. I would have never thought that dog would have bit me, but I just wanted to post this so people will remember to be careful around dogs. I'm a dog lover and this won't change it, but it will definitely change my approach while running or cycling. Just please make sure to use caution while running or cycling. My guess right now is that it'll be a month at least before I'm back up and going but hopefully that's just me thinking the worst.
