It's your fault because it's your dog and you must have it under control at all times, no matter where you are or who is with/around the dog. You have to teach the dog that playing and playing rough is a bad thing. If the dog has severely injured your roommate and they sue, you are the one that has to pay the legal fees and may be required to put the dog down depending on what the court orders.
