The Laughing Otter- because life’s just too short

Once bitten…

Posted on: April 27, 2009

Still not shy.

My dogs got into a fight this morning. This is the third fight in four days… and the first one to draw blood from human flesh.

Mirax, the poor thing, is evidently morally reprehensible to Cocoa, who feels the need to attack her viciously for the slightest provocation. The first fight drew blood from Mirax’s ear. The second was mercifully interrupted just prior to a second bloodletting.

The third added another nick to Mirax’s ear and a nasty scratch to her head, a bitter looking but fairly small cut to Kaelin’s finger- through the dead skin. It also added a centimeter long gash-puncture to the fleshy back of my thumb about an inch below the bottom joint.

I went to the urgent care, after thoroughly washing it with hot soapy water (irrigated it with a syringe) and they complimented Noske on his wash job, and then bandaged me up. No stitches- they don’t want it to close until it’s drained.

I’m so tired.
