Labradoodle & Goldendoodle Forum
Everything was fine at the beginning. 5 dogs were hanging around off-leash. One dog came to me and I petted him for a while. Then I continued speaking on the phone. The dog was still siting by my side. Camus came to me from the other side and when he came close enough, the other dog snapped and at the same moment I raised my arm and it was right between Camus and the other dog, so the dog bit my arm instead of Camus. The diameter of the wound is not big , but it is pretty deep and there was quite a bit of blood.
The sad part is that the other dog was a doodle. But that's not the saddest. The saddest was the owner, who didn't offer any help, who didn't say he was sorry and just said "My dog didn't bite you, there was no fight, it was an accident" and when I asked for his phone number just in case I have an infection or get some complication related to his dog, he yelled at me 'Do you want to sue me?' and started saying stupid things like I don't know the phone #, I can't see it on my phone screen, etc. That part hurt more than the bite.
A very nice lady who was there with her lab brought iodine and some bandage and band-aid from her car and helped me.
