On Monday night I had just sat down to a lovely cup of hot cinnamon tea with my Knit Night Girls gathered round my dining room table. Carey baked us these divine white rose cupcakes. Aren't they gorgeous?! Well, I had just swallowed the last bite when all kinds of commotion broke loose in the kitchen where my Mom and Scott were finishing up supper.
As Scott was getting up from the table a chicken bone slid right off his plate and faster than greased lightening, Phoebe, one of my weenie dogs snapped it right up! Not being fed table food, she was sure this was manna from Heaven! It was a leg bone. And it was in her throat in an instant. Well, I'm not about to let a dog choke to death. They are my babies. So, I went after it.
And that's where we entered the "dog bite" portion of the night.
Now let me just say this right from the start.
I have 3 dogs.
Not a single one of them would ever bite anyone.
Especially not their beloved Mommy.
Especially not THIS dog.
She is THE MOST gentle dog I have ever had.
She is all HEART
She has no idea she even bit me.
She was gulping and chewing at the same time and before I could get my finger back out, she bit down. No growling or fighting me in that way. She just wanted that chicken bone.
When I pulled my finger out it had 5 punture wounds.
Carey is a nurse practitioner. She helped me clean it and dress it. It didn't need stitches but it is quite swollen, sore and a bit bruised.
I was not able to knit or crochet with the Girls at all since it was my right index finger but we still had a good time once we got through our mini medical emergency.
The chicken Bone?
I got it out~
NO DOG IS GOING TO CHOKE TO DEATH ON MY WATCH IF I CAN HELP IT
As far as knitting news goes, I have decided to make a full blown shawl out of the beautiful Deja Vu yarn. I AM going to do a neckwarmer sized one eventually as well, but I want this one to be a shawl for Me really bad!
Thanks for all of your input on the matter.
And I am so sorry I did not respond to each individual comment as I usually do. My darn index finger has been too sore to type!
But I did make the jaunt out to the yarn shop for a couple more skeins so this swelling better go down soon so I can pick my hook back up and get busy.
I can't wait to wrap it around my shoulders :)
