Lola is only a bout 3.5 months but the other day I was lying on the floor attempting to snuggle with her when she decided it was play time.
She grabbed me by the hair and yanked hard.

She ended up leaving a bloody gash on the back of my head too.. ouch

Holy Shemoly, how did that happen?

With mine it's generally bruised legs on a constant basis. I used to have torn up hands but that has gotten much better now that I have the right balls to reward with.

Ma bit through my thumbnail, I think that is the one that has hurt the most so far. Nail is black.

Exclamation How NOT to break up a dog fight :D

I remember this well... December 2001 around 1 am in the morning... I hear my name being screamed and half asleep I jump up out of bed. I am directed by my mother who is hysterical that Shadow & Tori were fighting... Me still in a daze hear Shadow screaming and Tori in a defensive frenzy. I saw blood flying out of Shadow and this is where I went wrong still in a half asleep daze to break up the fight... Keep in mind I have no jacket or shoes on just socks...

Shadow is on the left and Tori is on the right.

I tripped and covered Shadow not realizing Tori was in a real defensive fight frenzy. Tori had no clue I was there she was so worked up. In less than a minute I got bit three times and I hit Tori in her nose to snap her out of it. She let out a yelp and came to her senses and immediately came up to me with her head down ears back licking me. This behavior was unusual for Tori she had never done anything like this before... We get the dogs and head to Dover, DE for the 24 hr vet since ours was closed. I felt fine just a little blood on my arm, left & right ankle no biggie Shadow was more important due to her puncture wounds....

We go to the vet Shadow gets her stitches and Tori was perfectly fine. We go drop them off at home and I head to the er. It was not a busy night and I was taken back pretty quickly. So I had a deep laceration on my left arm from bite 1 where a giant Tori fang got me. No stitches needed the nurse cleaned it up and it did leave a nasty scar. I take my sneakers off and my right shoe was a bit bloody. Once the heavy black sock came off I had 4 deep lacerations from bite 2. I take my left sneaker off the shoe was full of blood. I take the sock off deep lacerations on my ankle and a huge chunk of my heel plopped on the er floor... Don't worry it grew back but that was a bloody mess and yes I learned me a lesson on how NOT to break up a dog fight when half asleep in a daze at 1 am in the morning with no shoes on!

My skin is pretty thin from all the pred I've had to take over the years so I have a couple of nasty scars from a dog pawing at me, which really look a lot worse than they felt. I also got head butted once and broke a tooth. I was pregnant with my first kid at the time and they had to fix it without using any medicine which sucked!

I confess I'm kinda chuckling. These are terrible stories, my goodness, but looking back on my own experiences with Spirit ... I have to say I have not had another dog that brought so much injury!!

The worst for me was when I was playing soccer with the Jolly Egg Ball -- without shoes I didn't judge my kick just right and Spirit got a tooth under the nail of my big toe. Took out a chunk of skin and lifted half my nail.

I'm not getting injured quite so much anymore, I take that as one of the subtler signs that Spirit is growing up. He's almost 8 months now. I survived

Was giving Chief a pig ear I made him sit then handed him the treat he grabbed the whole thing plus my finger next to my pinky. It hurt so bad I yelled ahhhhhh ouch he immediately let go and dropped the treat. I had like 3 punctures in my finger and it bruised immediately. He felt bad he started licking my finger then wouldn't even eat his treat.

R.I.P- Smokey my GSD/Husky. You are my hero, my heart, my soul and you will forever remain in my heart. You were a true companion. I love You and miss You so much. Run like the wind!!

Sage was chasing Carly the other day, and plowed right into my shin (running full out). I swear I thought she had broken my leg!

I was working on quick retrieves and close fronts with Gryffon by holding a tug under my chin to lure him in close and to get him to release the dumbbell fast. Then I would drop the tug for him to catch.

He really liked this game (it involved a tug!) and got a bit over excited at one point and jumped up to grab the tug before it was released and his canine caught and split my upper lip. It bled profusely and took weeks to heal! Fortunately I have the type of skin that scars minimally, because I really wasn't too keen on having a permanent scar right there.

Boy had his cheek bone cracked by the GSD at the food supply shop. They were playing next to me- boy bent down, Zeus came up and their heads collided. Boy had a huge bruise, a scratch and the crack- all in time for next day's school photos. I thought the shop owner would die of horror, but it was all just a timing accident. Boy did not even cry- he kept right on tossing the toy...only the swelling and subsequent xray showed the true damage. Those 2 still have a good relationship so that's all that really matters.
