Thanks for the well-wishes, everyone!
Now that the bruising and swelling (of which there was quite a bit) has gone down, the bites themselves don’t look all that bad – they’re fairly superficial and should heal up within a week or so. Also, there’s no tendon damage (that would have put me into another line of work – permanently).
Except that one of the teeth marks (the one that did go super-deep) is still bleeding. It’s just one, and it’s not bleeding much, but there’s still blood when I have to change the dressing (twice a day) and my doc’s refusing to sew it up. I don’t feel like I should argue with him about it, as he went to med school and I didn’t, but it’s a damned nuisance. Hopefully it’ll close up in the next day or so.
According to the Ambulance Chasing Lawyer, if doggie’s owners rent their house, I’m shit out of luck as it would be impossible to collect a judgment, and quite frankly I’m not all that injured – the chance of my getting a settlement worth more than a few hundred dollars is slim, and ACL might not want to bother if there’s not going to be a decent payout for him.
Honestly, I’m less interested in financial gain and more interested in pounding doggie’s owners into a bloody pulp with the golf club I was saving for the tomato plant thief.

The remake of The Producers isn’t nearly as funny as the original.
Maybe it’s just me.
