    This morning, my dog was all over me. "I want to go for a walk". I finally gave in. I wish now that I hadn't. I opened the door and he made a mad dash off of the steps, smashing my left hand, knuckles first, into the side of the doorway. Two of my knuckles are cut, bruised, and swollen. I can barely move my fingers. In fact, I just typed this with my right hand. (It took nearly 5 minutes.)

    Oh, Anne, I am so sorry to hear it. Dogs can get really excited about their walks, can't they? :-) Ice it down good for the swelling and take some tylenol for the pain. Hope you are feeling better and back to the sewing machine soon.

    Where's the dog whisperer when you need him? I hope your hand heals quickly.

    So sorry to hear about your extra exhuberant dog Anne. I sure hope your hand heals up quickly...before you start going through withdrawal from sewing!!!

    Feel better soon. Bad dog, bad dog. I am not allowed to walk our puppy anymore because he pulls too hard and my kness can't take it. And that was one reason I got a dog!!!! So I sometimes go along when he is walked just for the exercise!

    Take care.

    OUCH!! Rest up your hand...ice cream for the swelling and chocolate for the pain, much better than ice and tylenol! :wink: Are you sure nothing is broken? As for Mr. Dog, that's the #2 reason to teach them to go through doors AFTER the person...rule #1 being the person is Alpha and thus deserves to go first. I'm sure he's really, really sorry he hurt you.

    I like Nor'easter's approach to pain killers. I'm sorry you are in pain. That's no fun.

    Oh yes!!! I was "helped" out a doorway once and my silly foot broke when it hit the doorjam!! Darn dog really wanted out!! I use a gentle leader on her now..a type of head harness thingy..and I get to go out the door first and walk at my pace. I know squirrels are really cool, but personally I don't want to chase them down for lunch :lol: :lol: :lol:

    Hope your hand heals up fast and for cripe's sake mom, don't wait so long between walks next time :shock: :shock:

    if that Rottie is the one that dashed out the door, you'd better be learning about YOU being top dog!
    The dog should NEVER *ever* ever dash out the door ahead of you...

    our daughter has raised rotties and pits and our son had rotties.... they all learned who was 'top dog'... and guess - it never was a "dog" 8)

    OH sweetie how awful, if the swelling does not go down with ice make sure you go see the DR.
    Hope you feel better soon.

    Ouch! Take good care of that hand - and guess you can just be designing some quilts (in your head anyway) while it heals up!

    Ohhh, I totally get how you feel.!! I broke my left wrist on Valentines Day (the most expensive date my DH has ever taken me on). No piecing, no quilting on the LA, no NOTHING! for 4 months. It was three weeks before I finally figured out a way to put my bra on by myself. (TMI!) I'm also an accountant. Try doing bookkeeping one handed. I couldn't even open envelopes, staple papers, punch holes, or tie down files. Hopefully this will be a very short term problem!!

    Good new. DH did most of the cooking - I couldn't lift pans, strain noodles, etc. And I didn't (couldn't) run the 4-wheeler to go check cow for calving problems. THAT I didn't miss!

    So sorry to hear about your hand. Sometimes our dog and cat kids forget we are in charge. Oh, who am I kidding. My cats and dog run my house. LOL. Hope you feel better soon.

    Thanks for all the kind thoughts. It is stiff, but the swelling is going down. Miss the chat room.

    Our Rottie died last year. The dog we have now was already a year old when we got him.

    Tough to type with one hand. Will go into it later on.

    Anne
