I went to dinner with my mother-in-law and I just realized I was talking in sound bites to her and expecting her to laugh every time I said anything or be jotting something down in a notebook.

Bites are usually not random attacks by strays. The great majority of biting dogs belong to a family member or friend of the victim.
