I was eating breakfast one Saturday morning it was nice about 55 degrees blue sky and not one cloud in the sky. I look out the window and all I saw was green leaves pine trees and our fresh green grass it was beautiful outside. I put my head down to eat and then i started chewing look out the window nothing took one more bite and I saw a dog and i saw a dog in the yard looking back into the woods but the first thing I noticed was that it wasn’t our dog. It was black and white and not to big so I grabbed our dog leash and didn’t even put my shoes on I started to run till I realized that would scare the dog so I walked out slowly one step to a nether step and then tried to call it over and the dog didn’t come so i took a couple more steps and then it ran down our driveway in the road
I ran outside and I saw it sprinting to the road and to the Neighbors yard! My heart jumped into my throat before I got to tell my dad that a random dog ran into the street the dog was already at the yard at the house across our house. I hear someone in the woods scream “Cookie!!!!!!.
I ran to the woods to see someone making their way through the trees
“It’s a dog”
“Black and white?”
I walked back over to my dad to see 3 cars on the side of the road and people were walking up our driveway to help they make it up
“is that your dog”
“no think its the Neighbors dog she’s walking through the woods right now”
so my dad went across the road and got the dog to get back in our driveway again.
“Cookies there you are come hear”
Cookie ran back over but didn’t stop just ran past us luckily I saw the dog go so our backyard so we needed to split up so half would go on one side and the ether half the ether side we walked around the corner
We all saw the dog on either side of the fence walk in the dog so we all just backed off so cookie did not feel stressed.
“Cookie come back”
we see cookie run like the flash i decided to go get the dog some left over chicken we had in the fridge I ran back outside! I hear
“The dog went near the field”
I did not respond and just gave the chicken to my dad and he went to the dog and sat on the ground and said
“Come hear you want it”
The dog didn’t come over
“Dad let me try”
He tosses the chicken to me dad walks down the driveway with the ether people
“Come here cookie”
The dog trots over to me i kept on holding it till the dog came over to me
and cookie snatched my arm with all cookies teeth! No pain but i saw cookie backing off there was no pain it was numb i got up i saw my dad running to me i limped to the house very slowly i didn’t want to look at my foot, I could feel the cold blood seeping down my leg.
I got to the house
“Dad i need gauze”
“Stay right there I will go get it for you!”
I felt the pain in a second it hurt so bad the pain it felt like my foot by a little thread i see dad threw the door walking closer he turns the handle he was panicking he opens the door.
“Get in the car so i can wrap your leg”
I limp to the car lift my hand it felt heavy i reached the handle to rest my arm. Then i open it lift myself up and sit down
Dad raped then put the tape on to hold it together
“Watch your foot”
He closes the door and runs around to the driver’s seat he open the door and sits down then slams it shut!
He put it in gear down the driveway. We pull out into the road then drive. I feel like dad was going faster than normal which I thought was threw but not for sher but anything to get me to the hospital was going to do.
“are you okay”
“yeah kind of its throbbing”
“yeah i bet it looks really bad” are we almost there”yeah 10 minutes”
“nooooo i don’t know if i can wait that long”
“I know but your going to have to”
we are still driving were near the hospital we go past Walmart Walgreen McDonald’s Wendy’s taco bell KFC and more then we stop moving were there at the hospital so we get outside i didn’t feel my feet but i still walked. I made it inside and I sat down I sighed from me being so exhausted my dad signed im waiting it felt like an hour i’m waiting and waiting then i hear a doctor talking the first thing i thought I’m done waiting
” Travis and Ethan “
“Yes finally” I mumble to myself
“let’s take of this gauze to see how bad it is”
so i took the tape off then the gauze off then my leg started to drip a puddle
“wow that’s bad what happened?”
“a dog bit my leg”
“that’s not a good bite mark”
“so how are we going to fix it up”
“Can we stitch it”
“I don’t want to but if that going to work then yes”
“Okay let’s do it
The doctor got the supplies to stitch up my leg I was scared but i had to get thru it. she started to put this stuff in my leg to make it numb so i didn’t feel the needle. definitely worked because my foot went asleep. she put the first thread in didn’t feel anything after we were done it took 12 stitches I had gauze wrapped around my leg again she told me not to run.
I walked into the waiting room and to the door we walked back to the car. It was an awkward silence till dad said
“how was to have stitches for the first time”
“okay i guess”
“Yeah I remember my first time it wasn’t good”
We talked all the way to the car we got there and I open the car door we were still talking I hoped I could barely hear him talking till he got back in the car. We backed up and started driving back home so I could rest.
