I got bitten by a dog, here,in GZ a few years ago. My beloved made me go to hospital, pay a fortune and get the jabs which kept me healthy. It was 7 injections over a couple of weeks if I remember. ...
Animal bites are serious sh!t! Your gf did the right thing to rush to the hospital. As I've said earlier, I'm no huge fan of dogs as pets. I can see how the police or some some farmers or the like might need them, but why regular people living in flats in the cities need them is truly beyond me. Dirty, smelly, noisy, flee infested and (potentially) dangerous is what I see. I'd much rather have a goat or a few hens in my home, at least they fill some practical purpose... Still, I realize that I'm in minority and that humans for some strange reason like these things...
Now, China has an excellent rule in place that only allows city people to have dogs up to a certain size. This is brilliant idea that ought to keep everyone happy. The dog people can have their dogs, but the dogs won't be big enough to be a true danger to others. Annoying perhaps, but not truly dangerous. Also, although these small ones also tend to bark, they are not nearly as noisy as the big ones. I used to live in the UK (lived there for two looong years) and it was awful with those big and clearly nasty pitbulls that everyone was having. Absolutely disgusting with red evil eyes! Now, this Chinese law worked excellent until a few years ago. All you saw were those little white hairdy dogs and the occasional sausage dog. Dog sh!t in the streets was a "western problem" :) . Compare that to a otherwise beautiful city like Vienna, were you quickly learn the hard way (or perhaps the soft way ) to pay all your attention to the street you're walking on rather than the gothic architecture around you. But what happened? I don't know, but suddenly, everyone in China seems to have these HUGE dogs. Of course, nobody knows how to raise them so not only to they bark like crazy, but they clearly don't obey sh!t, and are no doubt very dangerous. It appears that especially rich people are into the big ones. Everytime I look out of my window, I see one (sometimes two or three) of these giants running by, usually with a poor and sweaty Bao Mu behind trying to keep up. What is it, a prestige thing?
What we need is:
1) compulsory vaccinations for all dogs against all kinds of diseases
2) compulsory PUPPY SCHOOL for all dogs (perhaps "Olympic Mathematics" for dogs )
3) ONLY small dogs in the cities
4) death penalty for not picking up dog sh!t
China is very hard on gun controll for the safety of everyone (which I applaud), which makes you wonder how the country can allow people to have three untrained 80-kg monster dogs around, that clearly can tear an adult in pieces in a matter of minutes. Comments?!?!?
