Re: Was this worth being bitten by a dog?

I don't think anything is worth being bitten by a dog, even though it is a lovely scene and somehow makes me think if Ley Lines.

I do hope Anne's OK and that the wound is healing cleanly.

Especially as the dog owner is the owner of the land across which there's a public footpath, and is clearly unable to control the dog.

I was once bitten in similar circumstances, didn't report if because I didn't want to make a fuss, but always regret not doing so. I couldn't walk for nearly a week because of the puncture wounds - through thick denim. I've often wondered how bad it might have been had I been wearing shorts. I wouldn't hesitate to use monopod or tripod to keep an errant dog at bay.
