"Oh, he won't bite." Those are the last words my son heard just before feeling excruciating pain and watching his blood ooze out of his hand. He was severely bitten by a neighbor's dog while delivering The News. After enduring stitches, IV antibiotics, pain and other trauma, he then had to face the heartbreaking prospect of missing two to three weeks of playing football with his West Seneca Tomahawk teammates.
When will people learn that just because their gentle pooch doesn't harm them, it may not feel the same way about others? If people want their paper delivered, they should be sure to have a safe place for the carriers to put it.
