Your doctor is correct. You don't have warts or HPV, and you acquired no infection from the dog. However, it appears you are feeling guilty or ashamed about the event when you were 8 years old. Professional counseling may be a good idea. But you needn't be at all worried about any other health effects. Good luck.
