HEY!My biggest concern, though, is.....do you really want a full-time harp player in your band?
I'd almost prefer a dog-bite.
I dunno, I feel like the amount of pain from being stabbed in the hand with a screwdriver would still be a significant amount of pain.The dog is vaxed and has been inside for years.
I think I bled enough to clean the wound
So far, it doesn't hurt any more than if a grown man stabbed me in the back of the hand with a screwdriver.
Ooooh...I just thought of that scene from Goodfellas...
Old dogs are something to be wary of. If they have hearing or sight issues they can startle easily. And just like some people they can be too old to care about being polite.
When I was a kid we had a Golden Retriever. One weekend we went away and thought the trip might be too much for him (he was around 10 years old I think) & had the neighbors taking care of him.Yeah, sometimes elderly dogs can just be cranky or psycho, even when the owners have done everything right.
I have a 125 lb. Great Pyrenees and he's funny like that. If he is in our house or in one of our cars, you won't be able to approach without him going full Cujo but if you meet him outside, he's friendly to 99%. He is a guard dog after all, he takes his job seriously.Not quite the same thing, but…
I knew a guy who had a very well trained pit. I first got to know the dog in his house, and he could be a sweetie when he wanted. At some point the guy started putting him on a chain by his front door for security, and trained him thus:
The dog was to go all aggro when anyone approached; if released from the chain it was up to the dog to decide how to act. If he knew you, you were good. If not, who knows…
It was always a moment to pull up, get out of the car to a snarling, frothing ball of muscle and teeth, and the have my friend release him off the chain and watch the dog transform into a friend. I never quite got completely comfortable with it.
