A few years ago Hudson the wonder dog was injured in an attack by another dog as we walked the local doggie trail, an unfortunate incident I described here at the time. We've ventured back occasionally since then, but I've been a little too wary of a repeat incident to make it a regular event. Yesterday afternoon I brought Huddy and the Gunnar-man over there for a romp, and even as I was considering the benefits of resuming regular trips to the trail, Hudson had another run-in with another dog. Now just like last time, she did not start things, but she's probably more at fault this time around, as I think her "once bitten, twice shy" attitude probably contributed to the dust-up. Anyway, just like last time, as the other owner stood by helplessly, I dove into the fight and separated the dogs before either of them got bitten. The same cannot be said for me, however, as I felt a pinch on my arm as the other dog went after me, and when I saw the large tear in the sleeve of my leather jacket, I had to thank goodness I was wearing it, as it was clear that I would have suffered a severe injury had that bite caught my arm. It turns out I didn't get off scot-free, though, as there was a small wound beneath. It was more a scrape than a puncture, so I'm confident I won't get tetanus, but since the other owner and I parted ways before I noticed the wound, I'll just have to take it on faith that I'm not going to come down with rabies either.
