My boyfriend brought home a large, stray dog. We had him a couple of weeks when I bent over to give him a pat and he leaped up and grabbed ahold of my face in his jaws. He clamped on, sliced open the corner of my mouth and his teeth came through the corner of my nose and out my upper gum line. He shook me like a chew toy. I spent a week in hospital on antibiotics and had my face tended to by a plastic surgeon. My face swelled up like a balloon. I now have a scar that runs up from the corner of my mouth and another running down from the side of my nose. I'm kind of nervous around dogs now.
