In Singapore, MediaCorp actor Desmond Tan stopped by a friend’s place on New Years Eve and ended up spending the night in the emergency room. In a telephone interview with XINMSN Tan says:
“I was stroking my friend’s Golden Retriever when it suddenly dashed into my face and attacked my nose.”
The next day, Desmond tweeted:

Back in October, Tan posted this tweet, with an Instagram picture of him and a golden retriever. I wonder if it’s the same one…?

So apparently the dog is shy. Goldens are known to have excellent bite inhibition, and this probably could have been a lot worse. Hopefully it doesn’t leave a scar! (and the dog’s issues can be resolved!) The actor is traveling to Japan in the near future to film a commercial, and will conceal his injury with makeup.
It sounds like Desmond is a dog lover. He has an English Cocker Spaniel named Hoshi who has him wrapped around his finger!
