Today, I was bitten by a therapy dog. FML
queengarmin tells us more :
OP here! Just to clarify, I didn't intentionally antagonize him and he didn't intentionally bite me. I was playing with my neighbor's retired therapy dog, and whilst trying to pull a toy from his mouth, he chomped down on my finger. It was most definitely an accident, and though it hurt like hell, we have forgiven each other and we're friends again. And I've learned my lesson about watching my fingers while playing with a dog.

#33, "immutture" would've been funnier and much more fitting... :( And you need to choose 1 verb: either the dog "was being" or "was acting". :)

Therapy dogs and service dogs are different. If you pet a service dog who is working you can expect something happening but that is unlikely. Therapy dogs can be "certified" at 5 months old but never go through the training that service dogs do.

#17 but they can still see shades. Pretty sure even in black&white you can still decipher a brown person from a white person. & i'm almost certain it was a joke.

Neitz confirmed that dogs actually do see color, but many fewer colors than normal humans do. Instead of seeing the rainbow as violet, blue, blue-green, green, yellow, orange and red, dogs would see it as dark blue, light blue, gray, light yellow, darker yellow (sort of brown), and very dark gray.

Sorry to say it guys, but my dog is a bit racist. I don't have many African American friends, there aren't very many in my community at all. But one time we had one of my brothers friends over who was black and my little dog stared at him and would growl through most of dinner. I had to keep distracting him so he wouldn't growl at him. I felt so bad. But in his defence it was his first time seeing a black person (he was really dark too) and he obviously didn't know what to think. Luckily my brothers friend didn't care. :) so yes, it can happen.
