Gunner likes to take his marrow bones (after he's done with it) and have a game of "throw the marrow bone and chase it".
He picks it up and WINGS it across the room. Well, last night he was next to my chair (I was watching TV), picked it up and winged it....right into my face!
Now, he was less than 3 ft from me and let me tell you, he throws those things with a lot of force. It was a thick bone about an inch high and thick.
It hit me on the side of my face, on my upper cheek (near my hairline) and based on where the welt came up, it hit my glasses too. It broke the skin in a tiny area, nothing major. But this morning my cheek is swollen and it hurts, even to the touch.
It hit so hard and so fast and I didn't see it coming. That's the worst part, not seeing it coming. I immediately put an ice pack on it, but it swelled anyway and it's a tiny bit bruised.
Ehh, the joys of owning a marrow bone loving GSD!
