Got Bit By a Dog Today Going for a Walk

There I was, going for my walk, minding my biz, listening to Joyce Meyer on my iPod when BAM! 3 dogs came charging at me and one of them (a little one) bit my leg! I stood there and took the abuse, frozen on the outside (as I screamed to myself on the inside, "Do something, stupid! Think! Quick!"). Sometimes this happens in life. We get ambushed, blind-sighted & we freeze--griped by uncertainty, paralyzed by confusion. But we (or I'll just speak for me), I need to know that EVEN IN THOSE KINDS OF MOMENTS, God is STILL on His throne--God does not get taken by surprise when we do. So when life blindsights--by dogs or by people, we 9-1-1 Him. And He takes over. Just like He did today. I prayed--he helped. Two women came to me & one was a nurse. Go Rescue-God!

Wow Welcome to the neighborhood! There are now dog detention centers - Order those Rotweiller wanna-a-be's there! ( So sorry. For a bit of humor: Bible verse for the day; "and without, there are dogs...") Keep up the good work and great attitude.

First of all, even injured, you still have a cute leg. Secondly, I found it interesting that the little one was the one that was the biter. Goes to show that we can get whacked by the one least expected to come at us. I always enjoy your blogs. I think you should do an "Ask Heather" post!

Ow! So sorry this happened to you, but glad help was readily available. A dog bit me while I was jogging a few years ago. I still have a small scar behind my knee.

Yikes! so sorry this happened to you. God is good. Glad someone was there to help you. My dog got attacked by another dog once when I was on a walk with him, and it was terrifying.
