    I got attacked by a Great Dane tonight and until I heal up no diving.

    The injuries are basicly minor but to keep from getting an infection I have to stay dry. This sucks, now we are down another one, "ME"

    I hope you get better soon.

    I've been out for about a week with swimmer's ear and a bad infection. So I feel your pain.

    Wishing you many safe dives in '05

    Been there, done that. Got bit on my birthday about 10 years ago by a large Geman Shepard. I work in a prison, and we were doing aggression control training. (I was the bad guy) After I had taken the suit off, the dog saw its chance to nail me again. Pulled me to the ground by my left bicep, then got on my back and did some damage accross the cheeks of my.....well you can guess.... Bites were big and nasty, they would not sew them up cause the doc wanted them to heal from the inside out. Took about 5 weeks to get where they wouldn't "seep" anymore. So stay dry and heal fast.

    Ouch, and Great Danes are usually very friendly dogs. They usually think they are lap dogs. I would be very surprised if I was bitten by a Great Dane. Heal quickly buddy and have a good, no, great holiday.
