Fracture in left pinky when Baron ran over to a Golden in a training class and I had hold of his leash (improperly as it seemed to turn out!) and the leash tightened HARD around the little digit. Couple of weeks to heal but no problem with it!

The summer of 2011 I was walking down a forested slope with Chamsa and a friend- friend threw balll for her dog down the slope in front of me - Chamsa, never one to miss the opportunity of chasing a ball came running at speed out of nowhere and smashed into my left side - wrist bone shattered. I had an operation and a bery frustrating 6 weeks in cast as I am left handed.

Fast forward the end of the summer - wrist has just healed and I decide to take Chamsa to a German Shepherd training group. Chamsa was spooked straight away by all the well trained but poorly socialised dogs ! Two minutes into training she bolts - unfortunately my finger caught in the lead and snapped - yes, you guessed it - left hand again. Back to surgery, same surgeon!

This finger did not heal well and now does not work too well - a constant reminder to trust my instinct because as soon as I walked into the group and saw Chamsa's reaction to it i knew I should have turned around and taken her home!

A lot of bruises and a few scars. Treue put a nice full bite on my inner thigh when I went to kick a sleeve. I ended up canceling a physical since I wasn't going to try to explain that. eek My worst injuries are from horses and even then only some skull x-rays and scars.

Thanks, Pan! lol I now have an ugly scar. After I removed the stitches, this wound looked more like a bad burn (the scar also looks like a deep burn scar). There was also a really deep puncture on my palm side which hurt a lot more but was not stitched since you let punctures drain. The bite was HARD so my whole hand and wrist swelled and were wrapped for about 2 weeks to immobilize it. On the whole, not that bad.

I was bit in the face by a GSD when I was 2, don't have any of those photos scanned.

I also had a long line burn my heel, holy crap that one hurt!

Oh, and the first week I had Indy she muzzle punched me and I had to get my front tooth repaired.

I had a shoulder with 3 spurs on the end of the upper arm bone...
one day I was tossing a nerf football to the water, standing on an incline to the water, left side up, Hugo took off after thrown ball, leasch caught my sandal, lifting
the left leg, I fell on my shoulder...the spurs punched into the rotator cuff. It hurt a but, but I went swimming too in cold water, felt a bit better but upon waking the next morning, I couldn't move my arm.
Ended up with surgery, months of PT, and still, 5 years later, must keep up the torture myself to keep that shoulder strong and flexible, without too much pain.
It reminds me every once in awhile, but for the most part is OK.

Hmmm, many!

Pup missing stick I was throwing and got hand -- emergency room.

various nips and rips and rope burns (still have scars) from when long line wrapped around ankle when pup chased a ball.

I think I have a bump or scar from every pup - all well worth it!

Nothing is as simple as it seems or as complicated as we make it~

Attitude is everything -- Pick a good one!

The worst that has happened from my own dog was a some watering eyes, a bit lip, and one time she jumped up during left finish and clacked my teeth together so hard that I saw stars. She has nipped me and ripped a few pairs of pants when I was teasing her with a toy. Going for the toy, she has nailed my hand a bunch of times but nothing terrible. I do have pictures of a bad bite I sustained from someone else's dog but none from my own.

No time for details but:

1). my friend's dog broke my nose.

2). my foster dog mistook my hand for a stick and bit me.

3). Basu took off after something while attached to a 20 foot line (and me) and I did a full somersault, landed on my feet, held onto the dog and ended up with the mother of all rope burns.

4). Massie repeatedly ripped my pants open with the giant tree branches she liked to carry around (an injury to my clothing!).

5). all of the above

I'm sure there are lots more but that's a start. Can you tell I've been writing midterms for the past week? wink
