My GSD gave me a concussion...
So, my 2 year old female GSD (90 pounds), adores bubbles. She acts like such a puppy when she sees them, and scampers around like a maniac. :)

Last week, I went to blow some bubbles for her, and she got a little too excited. She ended up head-butting me right near my nose. I can not believe she didn't break it! The next day, I knew something was absolutely not right, and went to the ER. Sure enough, I was diagnosed with a concussion. Every time I was asked what happened, I began the story with, "It was NOT her fault..." ha!

Thankfully I am feeling much better now. And I swear that the poor baby feels guilty.

The joy of living with dogs lol. One of my clients has a gsd female, she was probably around 2 years old at the time, and she tripped her owner with the long line and gave him a concussion, he wasn't allowed to drive for two weeks and therefore could not go to work. The things they do, but we still love them :)

Ouch! I feel you pain. Literally. I was bending over to get into a drawer and my pup slid under me and jumped up on the bed with a direct hit of his head to my nose. Blood everywhere. I'm pretty sure he did crack it.

Ouch! Nose bumps are so painful.
I was training last night and my elbow connected with Karlos noggin. It hurt both of us, it was a hard hit. I hope he doesn't have a concussion!
I need to get some bubbles, I'll be very careful when blowing!

Eko has hit me with his head before, and it hurt (not as much as when he hit me in the face with his paw) but my pit mix has given me black eyes from leaping into my lap and headbutting me when she gets the zoomies.
