As nobody witnessed the incident with my child and she lacked the vocabulary to accuse and had no fear of him what so ever I will never consider that a bite. The real bite at the weight pull track was witnessed by dog men with decades more experience, and the fear caused by the sound of the cart was enough for these men to excuse it, and tell me to watch him. The bite on the young neighbor was inexcusable, and unprovoked, but doing the right thing never felt worse.
That must have taken a lot of courage. You have my respect.
