Tina D. Last night, Mia was hunting a large black ant on the kitchen floor. She was swatting at it, and trying to grab it in her teeth. But, she just couldn't get herself flat enough to do what she wanted. My husband and I were watching her, laughing. Finally, she paused and stared at it for a few seconds. Next thing we knew, she literally did a dive-bomb onto the ant, headfirst! Then she wriggled around on top of it. She succeeded in smooshing it.

It was absolutely hilarious! I said, "Well, after what she did to me, she knows that she can use that noggin..." LOL

Liesje I've had a broken tooth and stitches (separate incidents) thanks to my dogs, and my puppy tore tendons in my friend's knee (she is doing PT and hoping to avoid surgery) but never a concussion, ouch!

Just a suggestion - find other balls besides tennis balls to play with. 2 reasons - first one is once a dog reaches a certain size; tennis balls can become lodged in their throat. Some dogs have been lost to this. 2nd reason is the cover on tennis balls can act like sand paper and wear the teeth down. JW has a ball - about softball size, that has survived a couple of years with Woolf.

Juliem24 Two days ago, Rudy and I were both going for the stick at the same instant: his snout collided with my thumb. My thumb was dislocated, he never even blinked. Makes you wonder why I worry about him feeling pain....he knocks that lunkhead into furniture and doors and never even stops...I'd be crying like a baby!

Stevenzachsmom Ouch! Sounds about right. It's a wonder we don't all have broken noses and broken teeth. Dog skull to human knee feels pretty bad too. They are worth it, though. Wishing you a speedy recovery!

Thanks for all the replies. It's good to know that I'm not the only one to get banged up by a doggie.
