Following her harrowing dog attack and working with phobia expert Gary Coxe, The Doctors surprise Pennelope with gifts that are sure to improve her life and give her some much needed relaxation.
Pennelope was able to miraculously overcome her fear of dogs, and while she may have to continue to live with the physical scars of the attack, plastic surgeon Dr. Michael R. Burgdorf surprise her with the gift of a “mommy makeover,” which includes a breast lift and a tummy tuck, free of charge! Additionally, Gary surprises Pennelope with a trip from Sandals Resort for some much needed rest and relaxation.
A beyond elated Pennelope tells ER physician Dr. Travis Stork, “Oh my God, I feel like I’m going to bust at the seams,” after finding out about her amazing gifts.
In order to help Pennelope cope the attack, The Doctors brought in shark attack survivor Steven Robles, who shared his advice and words of encouragement for her and also veterinarian Dr. Ruth MacPete, who explains that Pennelope did exactly what someone should have done if they are attacked by a dog or animal. She goes on to share possibly life-saving tips with The Doctors that everyone can benefit from.
Dr. MacPete says that an attack like Pennelope’s is rare, but there are still 4.5 million dog bites per year. She recommends that if a dog rushes towards you to act like a tree with your arms at your sides, looking down and keeping still. She says that most dogs will lose interest if you are quiet and stand still and they will most likely leave you alone. If a dog attacks or knocks you to the ground, she says act like a rock, by rolling in a ball and covering your vital organs and neck. Dr. MacPete says these tips could be the difference between life an death.
