From Bad to Great

First I want to apologize for the lapse in posts.

This week has been quit stressful for me. Monday evening my dog bit the little neighbor girl. My dog shouldn't bite, but to her defense the neighbor girl was trying to pick up the dog so she turned to nip her. She got her head right above her eye and a little of her eyelid. I was freaking out. I called her mother to let her know what happened and that I thought she needed stitches so I was gonna take her to the hospital. Her mom said she was on her way home and would be there in 10 minutes so we would wait. During the waiting I practically had a nervous break down. I wasn't sure what the rules are for dogs that bite. I was worried that I was gonna have to put my dog to sleep. I cried for to my mom and dad for about 3 hours. It was hard cause I was upset my dog bit her, but at the same time she was aggravating her. My dog has never done anything like this with Munchkin and he has done plenty. In fact the reason my neighbor was trying to pick up my dog was because Munchkin had just done it.

My neighbor finally got here and she wasn't upset about the bit. She is a nurse and said it didn't look like it would need stitches and that her daughter was half to blame for it. This made me feel a little better, but I was still scared about animal attack laws.

It actually turned out fine. My neighbor had to contact rabies control because of protocol. The rabies control people stopped by the house to let me know the dog was under "house arrest" for 10 days. They didn't even need to see the dog or anything. They only needed her rabies tag number. This was a huge relief to me. I guess since it really wasn't a "real" attack nothing had to be done. The only downside to this is that my dog has to be on a leash when she goes potty outside. Why is this a downside? Well she thinks it is play time so she won't do her duty. Just a bit ago I came back from shopping and found my dogs duty all over her cage. Yuck. O'well at least it was in her cage.

Also on Tuesday it was Announced that Tim McGraw will be coming to concert here this year. When and Where are still TBA, but who cares as long as he will be here. I absolutely love Tim so this was so exciting for me. Actually love is an understatement. I am obsessed with Tim McGraw and all my friends/co-workers will back this up. I have had friends buy me his calendar for the last 3 years and one morning I came into work and there was a letter on my desk from "Tim". I can't really remember what is said, but no one ever confessed to writing it. I also receive any magazine with an article in it on him. I guess I should take the hint that I talk about Tim too much, but I haven't.

With his concert announcement the radio station also announced that they would be giving away a chance to qualify for backstage passes and tickets on Thursday (today) every hour. So of course I had my desk radio on extra loud today so I would miss the chance. I had my cell phone in one hand and work phone in other every chance I got. After3 tries I actually was the 9th caller. I couldn't believe it. I was so excited!!! So I now have Tim's new CD which isn't out in stores for a few weeks and Faith Hills CD (since she will also be in concert with Tim. She is married to my man, so I have tried to hate her, but she seems to be an extremely nice person, so I have failed at that.) I am now gonna be put in a drawing for the tickets, so if anyone out there reads this keep you fingers for me crossed.

Oh wow. That's really good to know about the dog stuff. I didn't know what happens when a dog nips at a child. There are tons of kids in my neighborhood so I wonder about that.

So glad your dog incident turned out o.k. We just had to put one of our dogs down when she became too territorial...and bit a neighbor's dog, requiring surgery, stitches, vet-hospital stay...and a weird welcome to the neighborhood. Yes, they had just moved in!

Agree...completely with about Tim McGraw! It's a sin...what I['m thinking!!!!!
