The attacks began not long after my tenth birthday. Suddenly, and with no warning, dogs turned feral, everywhere. The entire western hemisphere quickly became a barren shadow of it's former self. Yeah, they had drugs that could cure the numerous infections that came from the dog's bites, but not enough. Supllies were exhausted within week. Along with this, oil prices soared, stock prices nose dived, the world economy was already in a mess but once this all kicked off it became real nightmare.
They say it was some lunatic in the Americn army who was experimenting on rats, but lost some of the "subjects". Who really knows now anyway?
