tribute # 253 - biting dog

chain-lunger on sight of cyclists
slipped collar — first dog bite

tore my pant-leg, (shrug)
didn't make me shy.

20 years later a dog
sicced on me as a "joke"

3 teeth marks, 1 remaining scar
scared in spine of barks

Some joke!

yes, he was. some people give clear indications of whether they are good to be around.

I do like dogs and some individual dogs tho. bodies relearn.
