    I'm so glad it's all worked out (or back) with the bone Sean, that would have been scary. Mojo must have been pretty freaked out when you put your hand down his throat ... but luckily you were able to get the bone out of the way, I don't know that I would have been able to do that, but I guess adrenalin takes over.

    Good call with the scotch, maybe a visit to the doctor for a tetnus shot ...

    Hope Mojo's feeling better now too and that your wife's talking to you soon

    Sean Sean Sean Sean Sean.. afraid of little dogs in back yards, and needles too?

    Yess, indeed, you sound like a major wuss!

    If you do nothing else, do the dexterity excercises. They really will help with the aches and pains.

    And thanks for your lovely comment.





    The thing about tetanus is, you have 72 hours from exposure to get your protection updated, but by the time symtoms develop (can be as soon as day 1), you're gone too far for the jab to save your sorry behind, you have to rely on anti-biotics and/or penicillin to get your jaw (and the rest of your body) unocked and your brain unscrambelled. Tetanus is one of the most deadly toxins there is. I don't mean to scare you - well, actually I do, because after incubation, it's downhill very rapidly and very seriously. Chances are good that nothing will happen... but what about your wife and your kids? Look here for more infor on "what's the worst that can happen".

    Please - don't be a wuss, and get yourself needled.

    tetanus is one of those things most of us don't think about - it wouldn't have been something that would cross my mind with a dog bite - but your post pinkest reminded me of the cleaner of my primary school. She died from tetanus sometime during the 1990's.

    Mymatejack, people still die from tetanus, even today, because they think "oh it's just a scratch"... but just one microbe of it is enough to kill you. It's scary stuff indeed.

    (And Pinkest will be off to update her own protection tomorrow!)

    Frozen peas make a good ice pack.
    Booze makes a great anasthetic. (You already knew that, lol)
    Glad the big fella is OK. Well done Dad!

    Keep a good eye on it. Despite me keeping a punctured finger in detol a few minutes a few times a day I ended up with a bad infection that needed antibiotics. Any red threads you see creeping up your arm seek medical help ASAP as it can be sepsis/blood poisoning.

    Any posts made under the name of Di_dee1 one can be used by anyone as I do not give a rats.

    Thanks guys....i'll keep a close eye on it...i've had a major infection before in my leg and i dont want a repeat of that...i still bare the scares 15 years later.

    On a good note the giant pug just gulped down his dinner as per usual so it looks like he's gunna be OK.......but sooner or later that bones gunna wanna come out the back end....if it gets stuck in there i'm not sure i'll be so quick to stick my hand in him to try and rip it out
    I'm hoping his body can break it down a bit before it see's the world again........poor bugger.
    The bones have been given to the neighbour so her little dog can chew on them instead.......no point waisting them, they where only bought a day or 2 ago.

    Glad to hear Mojo is okay Sean, I would have freaked out and reacted the same as well. Sucks about your hand though

    There is no psychiatrist in the world like a puppy licking your face.

    I'd be very surprised if there's any issues at the back end mate, dogs stomachs are designed to break down bones
