One of my favorite scars is an Airedale canine tooth shaped scar on my left knee.

I was a high school kid shadowing Dr. Rohrig at Rohrig Animal Hospital at 80th and Dodge Streets. I am sure I was too close to whatever procedure was being done. The frightened Airedale turned and ran toward me.

I backed up, but he just barely got me with a tooth to the knee.

I was told to sit on a stool on the edge of the room with a wet paper towel on my knee. I was glad I did not have to quit watching.

I went on to work for Dr. Rohrig in college, and have since worked with him on a case or two as a veterinarian.
