  • UPDATE: Mike Ptaschinski '68 - attacked by two pit bulls in my own garage last week. Was bitten on the outer right knee during the first go-round. Then they came back again. Only thing that saved me from another bite was a handsaw I grabbed nearby.  Puncture wounds, plus dog is not vaccinated for rabies, so I'm on the rabies protocol. Dogs did not have rabies - "if Linda notices Mike foaming at the mouth, she's gonna lock him up in the backyard and rent the movie "Old Yeller." - A wife's compassion !!!
