I didn't get this in an email....only on Facebook. I hope if there is no one who comes forward, that you will post this in the next email for more people to see. When I was about the same age, i also got bit by a dog...same scenario. Finally, someone came forward and the dog was tracked down....I also was supposed to start the shots. I feel bad for the little boy.
