We needed to give Suki a bath with medicated shampoo last Saturday, but she wasn't having any of it. I tried to grab her before she ran out the patio door, tripped, and hit the side of the kitchen table with my head. I thought pine was a softwood, but I was wrong! Four stitches across my eyebrow, black eye, and concussion. I would share pictures, but can't figure out how to do so on my phone (let's just say that the cut is super deep - maybe better I don't post that picture.)

Oh, my gosh! I'm glad you're ok. Well, at least relatively.

I hope you weren't home alone. That's scary!

And has Suki had a bath yet?

wow

My husband was in the bathroom getting ready to go in the shower with her. He came running when I called, took one look at me and said "that's going to need stitches". He took really good care of me. Suki's bath was delayed one day and modified into a sponge bath on the deck (daily for five days, now every two to three days).

That is really scary. Shoot at 10 Suki is still some engine of action. Please let self care have a few days over dog care.

all the best,

Well, I guess you get the prize! My this year's face plant required no stitches, gave me no concusion --- just blood and bruises. My dog is sooo second rate....

Ow! I am glad your husband was there to help. Take it easy, and I hope the wound heals quickly. hugging

Reminds me of an injury I had a couple years ago, except a tree branch was responsible. Made good firewood. laugh

I'm glad your husband was around too to help you out. I guess I've been lucky in that Eli will go anywhere with me, even when he knows its another medicated bath. I know he doesn't enjoy them but I've had to do so many with all his skin issues.

But I'm glad your ok. Hopefully the sponge bath helps.

I'm glad you're ok. Well, as ok as you can be with all that damage. Our dogs will never hurt us on purpose, but they may just kill us by accident.

Gosh, I know how frustrating it can be trying to load pics. Sorry, I'm no help headbang I finally figured out how to do it using Flicker but I'm thinking that's not the way most people do it.

I'm just glad your alright and healing.
