Lydia was at a play date at our good friend's house. Their neighbor had a large dog chained up that our friend warned the kids to stay clear of. He's not a mean dog but is unpredictable.
Lydia, being a dog lover, couldn't resist a quick show of affection to this big dog.
She came to him, hugged and kissed him and he bit her hand.
To our surprise, the doctor said that cat bites are the germiest, people bites come 2nd and dog bites come 3rd. He did prescribe a preventive antibiotic because it was on her hand, but she has healed well.
Thankfully this has not made her scared of dogs, but I hope it will help her obey when someone warns her to stay away from a dog - even if she just wants to give them a little Liddy Love!
