@missy92264:  Did you ever talk to her about giving the dress back?

wow- you never really know people, right?

i can see why you would want the dress back, but i wouldn’t hold my breath. have you asked her for it yet? maybe when you get a lawyer that could be something included in some sort of settlement? $200 less to cover the cost of the dress? i have no idea. but, WOW. i’m so sorry 🙁

In my opinion, she’s acting bullcrappy. I would never sue a friend if her dog bit me (actually one of them has) especially if the friend offered to pay for the medical bills and everything! As for the dress, it probably wouldnt cross my mind to return the dress if it was me, so maybe she’s also ditzy and needs to be reminded of it.

Also, one of my dogs names is Judas, so the title of the thread amused me.

This sounds awful! 🙁  I agree with PP that you can try to address the MoH dress during the legal settlement because I don’t think you’d be able to have a civil conversation about it now that she’s suing you.

What a b*tch… That’s all I have to say about it. Good luck, OP. I’d hate to be in your position.

@missy92264:  Look, I’m sorry. I’m sure you and your dog are good people. I’m sure that you have the best intentions and you mean well and I can see why you’d feel hurt.

I know how many animal lovers are here, so I’m prepaired to get blasted. Here goes

If a dog bit me severve enough that I needed sticches, I’d report it. That’s my right to. What if that was a child?

 

Unless it was family, I’d most likley do the same thing. It’s nothing personal-she wants to make sure she’s treated fairly. I’m not saying you were going to try and trick her out of anything. But she has a right to make sure she’s protected.

 

As for the dress, maybe you should ask some lawyer bees-but I think you need to go through her lawyer to ask her for stuff. I’m not too sure

Ask for the dress back.  The friendship is ruined anyway at this point. 

Seriously, what a B.  If the dog bite was serious, I would understand possibly, but to ruin a friendship over 3 stitches?  Not ok. 

Just send her an email – don’t say anything about the letter you received, but write something along the lines of, “Hey, hope all is well on your end.  I’m writing you because the dress I purchased was for you to stand by my side as my Maid/Matron of Honor on my wedding day.  Unfortunately, that didn’t happen and so I’d like the dress back so I can give it to my daughter instead.  You can mail it to me (my address, should you not remember it is 123 Lovely Lane, etc.).  Please let me know when you’ve dropped it in the mail.  I’m hoping to get it this week.  Thanks, Missy.” 

This is not legal advice.

Edited: I can’t provide you with any legal advice so I won’t address that. Howeve, I agree with other posters that biting is not acceptable dog behavior, no matter how minor the injury. What are you and Fiance doing about his dog to make sure this never happens again?

I also agree that your former Maid/Matron of Honor is being a B by suing you. You’ve already agreed to pay off all of her medical bills and then some. If she wanted more money, she could have discussed this with you and your Fiance. Instead, she’s made the process more expensive and contentious than it needed to be.

@MissFireFlower:  If the dog was reported, it would most likely be put to sleep. You would seriously ruin a friendship and kill a life because of 3 stitches? I’ve gotten more stitches than that from falling on a stepping stone. Should I sue whoever made the stepping stone?

And btw, I’m not trying to say that by it only causing 3 stitches its okay to happen, its definitely not. But I think suing and reporting the dog is over kill. Literally.

@MissFireFlower:  I just don’t see why she had to be such a bitch about it. She could have said something to them about the fact that she would have report or she’d feel more comfortable talking to a lawyer. I also don’t understand why she’d go through a lawyer if she hadn’t even tried to get her friends to pay her medical bills. When she goes to court, she won’t get anything more than her medical expenses anyway.

W..T..F! She is suing you over 2 stiches?  People are so fucked in the head these days.  Apparently she didn’t value your friendship so tell her you want the dress back and move on, she’s not even worth your time.  Sorry.

to the person above that said “if a dog bit me bad enough that i needed 3 stitches” as an ER nurse, i’d say that 2 bites requiring 3 stitches total indicates that they prob weren’t that bad, unless they stitch differently in adults verses pediatrics.

 

regardless,i think it’s crappy what she’s doing, especially if you alreadfy paid her bills.  def ask for the dress back, but idk if she’ll be reasonable about it
