Default Busted lip...

Yes, I officially have a busted lip. Guess who did it? My furry pal, Brady. I am talking busted: swollen, blood, pain, the whole works. How? Well, that is a very good question b/c I can't even be sure myself how it happened.

I let him in from going out to the bathroom, and he bounds in a bit excited but he didn't seem OVER-exhuberant. Well, apparently I was VERY wrong about that. Well, I kind of did a little jog for about THREE steps into the living room and I guess he was wound up enough to take that as "play/run as fast as you can at the stairs and bounce back towards the couch" time. Well, I happened to be sitting on the couch right as he turned towards the couch from the stairs. Now he is FAST and he is BIG and the stairs are a short distance from the couch. Right as I am sitting I see him coming and I duck my head a bit b/c I notice he sees me sitting and he can NOT stop. So instead of doing his little jump onto the couch he decides to try to jump higher to clear me. Well, normally he is a great jumper and I have even thought about entering him in agility for how good he does in jumping. Not THIS time. His back doggie knee went right into my bottom lip. PAIN and blood. And a big fat bottom lip. Wow it hurt. I have never had one before. Now it just kind of stings and it is still big and busted looking, but it doesn't hurt like it did at first.

So, sorry this is so long, but I never had one before, and I never would have thought the dog would sock me one so good. But he got me...

Oh, oh, oh . . . . that is so funny, and I feel so bad for laughing 'cause I know it hurts (guess how I know ) At least he didn't give you a black eye.

If it makes you feel any better - or just makes you laugh - Shiva has a habit of putting her feet on the sofa to lean forward to rub whiskers with Charley, only sometimes she misses with that big foot of hers and you know where she steps . . .

Kharma bruised my lip the other day by whacking me with her paw when I wasn't turning around to pay attention to her fast enough, and Bimmer almost blacked my eye when he vaulted over Shiva and Kharma's backs to get to me to kiss me in the face when I came home the other night.

Oh, well, I always say nothing is too bad if you can get a good story out of it . . .

ow
I also have a list of injury I've gotten from Boomer:

-Dislocated shoulder (dog runs into me while im sitting on the couch)
-numerous sprained wrists and ankles (dog smashes into my knees and i have to catch my fall)
-black eye (dog runs full speed into my face while I was crouching)
-swollen lips (Same as above)
-stitches on my legs (fell back when he tackled me)

Funny because I've only had this monster for about a year and I've heard that golden retrievers normally dont calm down till they're about 3 years old.

OUCH, bogolove!! And sure....try telling everyone 'no, really..it was my dog' When the dogs come in, I wipe their paws if it's been raining/snowing (which it does daily) and Hammie always puts his head way down and snuggles into my chest.....I keep making the same stupid mistake of having my head directly above so that when he lifts his head...WHAM..right up under my chin! You'd think I'd learn......

Renee- ouch! Maybe you should get Charley a cup to wear around those two big bumbling girls....

shredhead - sorry to laugh, but the black wear dog runs into your head at full force had me chuckling, mostly b/c I could see the same thing happening to me...

Debi- I do the wipe the paws thing when it has been raining or smowing here, good thing you told me, b/c now I need to watch out for that too!!!

Debi, you've got to watch these German Shepherds!

I've got this little flat place on the end of my nose. You really can't see it, just feel it a little bit. My sister had one of those 'perfect' little noses - you know the kind - and she just loved to twit me about mine, especially since my Mom was always going on about how pretty her nose was and wondering if there wasn't some way to get rid of the flat spot on mine. I can't tell you how much time Mom spent pinching the end of my nose when I was a kid, trying to get rid of that flat spot! Of course, it bugged me no end, as only a teenager can be bugged by a six-years younger sib, who is, of course, perfect . . .

Purdue, the First Shepherd, had a game he just loved to play with me. It was a German Shepherd's version of Chicken. I'd crouch down on one end of the yard and he'd run to the other end and assume the International Play Position, chest down, ears upright, head cocked to the side, butt and tail high in the air. Then he'd run, straight at me, full bore. At the last possible moment, I'd hop to one side and he'd swerve to the other, run past me, turn and come back and jump up on my back.

You can see where this is going . . .

Well, one day my sister, being jealous of the game and terribly competitive, decided that not only would she play with Purdue, she'd show me that she was braver. When Purdue ran at her, she didn't move.

Neither did he.

WHAM!

Knocked her flat.

You know that bony little bump on top of Hammie's head? Popped her square in the middle of that perfect little nose with it! Popped her good . . . broke it.

Now, she's grown up with a big bump in the middle of her nose . . . . with a flat place on it!

Purdue was such a good dog.

I'm sorry for your ouchie. That must hurt. I know. I too have been injured mildly several times now by my Doberman pup. He has the hardest head of any dog I ever had. (and I've had lots) He has this bone on top that forms a sort of ridge. And I never, ever learn to be careful. I know better than to get my head over the top of a horse's head or face, so why can't I learn to take the same caution with my Dobe? Three times he's hit my nose so hard, I thought it broke. And I've received one split lip, like you. I bend over when playing and whamo!

The other day he was going back and forth through my legs, (which almost high centers me) and I wondered why he wasn't coming back, so I bent down and looked between my legs just as he was busting through and he popped his head up hard. A-h-h-h.....get the ice!

Hope your wound heals soon. Ice helps get the swelling down.

Oh doberluv! That sounded so painful yet I couldn't help but chuckle picturing it in my head. My lip now has a bubble on it that seems will turn into a scab. Atleast it is more towards the outer part of the lip so it doesn't drive me completely crazy.

Well good....it sounds like it's on the mend. These dogs can be dangerous without even trying. LOL.
