Geez...she called the police to get a ride to the hospital. What an elitist stupid woman. She then realized her driver was waiting for her.

It is a nasty gash. She has pictures of the hospital visit on her blog. There are 2 minor scratches on her face as well. These things Leads me to believe it was more than getting bumped really hard in the mouth by the doggie. What do you think?

I think one should make sure the dog’s awake before whispering sweet nothings in its ear.

What do you tell a woman with a split lip? Nothing. You already told her.

Seriously though, forgetting all of her other issues, I think Martha is one of the most attractive units out there. That’s a good thing. Whoof.

Her dogs are small, right? My chocolate lab’s head is like a friggin’ bowling ball. He’s biffed me in the mouth with it more than once. No stitches so far.

Do you mean the red spots on her nose and the opposite side of her lip? If so, I think thats just blood from the original wound that wasn’t wiped off.

I’ve been bumped on the mouth like that by my dog while playing with her. Cut the inside of my mouth but not nearly as bad as this. That was a wallop. I can understand why she requested the plastic surgeon.

Chow Chows are unpredictable biters. Never get your face too close to one.

We forget that dogs are nothing more than semi-friendly wolves that tolerate us because they get a bowl of food and a warm place to sleep. A dog in the wild will quickly adopt it’s natural killer instincts.

2 weeks ago I was shaving our dog’s hair to treat a “hot-spot” and Mrs. panax was helping me hold him down. She pulled his front leg out straight so I could get to his armpit. With lightning speed he quickly snapped at her and laid back a half-dollar piece of flesh from the back of her hand. Ouch!

Luckily we were at our son’s house in FL (both he and his wife are doctors). Our DIL cleaned and bandaged it and said it might need a stitch and to come into her clinic in the morning. Our DIL ended up putting in 7 stitches and gave her a tetanus shot. My wife pulled the stitches out yesterday. Yes, she’s a tough lady.

The point is that a dog will attack when threatened and in an unfamiliar situation no matter what the breed or how long you’ve had it. Neither one of us hold any ill feelings towards our dog because he is, afterall, just a dog.

The dog is fine.

Did the surgeon tie pretty bows in the stitches?

I have an Olde English Bulldogge (yeah, they do spell it that way) Bigger than the British Bulldog, but smaller than an American.

Her head is like a frigging boulder. We've had a few collisions over the years and they hurt!! And if she sits on you, you move!!

(She really is a gentle dog, just big and clumsy. And she does have attitude!)

I don’t like her politics, but she’s a nice looking woman to be 69.

Its a joke where split lip and black eye are interchangeable. Although a joke, mostly men tell it to other men. Sorry if you didn’t get that it was a joke and found it offensive. Women generally do fail to see the humor in that one. I thought the words “seriously though” in my post would have indicated, to even the most humorless readers that, up to that point, I was not being serious. Fortunately, I’ve “had” the same good woman for almost 20 years. She’s upstairs right in the kitchen where she belongs. (joking again). Regards.

I didn’t find it offensive. Being a sailor, my Husband says stuff like this as a joke knowing that if he were to ever try it he would only try it ONCE.

I was, however, offended that you think Martha Stewart is attractive.
