Introduction

My Bad Experience! I was about the age of six and I was doing the normal things six year olds do, when I had my bad experience. It changed my life, as up to this day I always used to like dogs (even really big dogs), because they had never bitten me until now. I was out playing football in my back lane with my friend that lived up the road; it was quite hot so my friend went to his house to get a drink, he told me to come up the lane and wait by his back gate. I peered into the garden and saw his Alsatian 'Sadie', the dog was about twice the size of me but I was naive at this age so I didn't really think much of it. ...read more.

By now I was running a little slower, as I had a fully-grown Alsatian on my back holding on by its teeth and I was yelling at the top of my voice, to my friend's dad to call the dog off. The dog gave up trying to hold on with its teeth, but it didn't stop chasing me until I got to the bottom of my lane, when just then the owner came out and shouted to the dog to call it back. The dog just strolled merrily back to the owner, as if it had done something to be proud of. But I didn't care about the dog or anyone at that time, as I thought I was going to die because I was only about six at the time and was all shaken up. ...read more.

Conclusion

But I only had to have some stitches in my back. The nurse told me, that if the dog had bitten centimetres deeper, it would have touched my spine and paralysed me for life. After this happened I thought to myself, if I didn't run the dog may not have chased me, which resulted in me getting bitten; but then again, if I didn't run the dog may have bit me in the face, which would have been fatal. The only good thing about my near death experience is that I got the rest of the week off of school, to give the wounds time to heal. And from that day on my life has changed completely, as I am less trustworthy in dogs and less confident to approach a big dog, after my childhood trauma. ...read more.
