    Scared me quiet a bit
    I had the same thing happen with our boxer/pit. He was sleeping on the porch and a friend of mine dropped me off, so he didn't hear my truck, obviously. As soon as I opened the door, he jumped up and started barking with his teeth bared. As soon as he realized it was me, he was fine. But I never realized just how scary he can be. At least I know that if anyone ever tries breaking into my house, they'll have a lot of teeth to deal with.

    Mhmm, my rotti x is like that too. Though she's more protective of me than she is of the house/yard. Especially when I'm outside. I was working in the garden (behind the house) and I had come out through the patio door and Leia (the dog) was with me. My mom came out of the front door and around the side of the house - I guess Leia hadn't heard the door and it startled her - and she was pretty impressive, hackles up and barking and snarling.

    Kevin works late a lot and so I'm home alone late at night quite often, and I love knowing I have a dog that would protect me with her life if needed. I think I'll always have a rott or rott cross, I love her protective instincts.

    Oh well, a couple days and I'll be right as rain. Besides - it's already hot and humid and it's only 8:30 in the morning!!! I HATE hot humid days. Make me feel like I'm melting. I can't wait for fall!

    I hate those kinds of blisters. Is it still a blister or has it popped and is just sensitive skin now? I have a bad habit of popping blisters when I get them. I was told once they heal faster if they can dry out, don't know if it's true or not, but it's what I always do. I've found that for knuckles, what works for me is a band-aid and then wrap it with athletic wrap or something of the sort. You won't be able to bend your knuckle as much, but at least it keeps it clean. Then again, if it hasn't popped it should stay fairly clean anyway. I

    Not only popped, but that entire layer of skin is just gone. I might try that, with athletic wrap over a band-aid

    Vet wrap fixes everything, not just for animals lol. I dislocated my finger in May, it still hurts sometimes, and I took a plastic knife cut in half and vet wrap. Fixed it all up. I'm pretty accident prone so I could fix just about any wound. So I would vet wrap the hell out of it.

    So my little fur one isn't so good of a guard dog I guess. Last night I got home and no dog, called for her, still no dog, called again, and here comes miss sleepy head. Apparently the closet under my clothes is her new favorite place to sleep.

    Antibiotic ointment helps too. I never thought it did, but my wife proved me wrong. It makes a big difference. I'd put on the oitnment, then a bandaid, then I have this gauzy mesh stuff I put over the bandaid, then tape it. The mesh provides a little more flexibility I think, kind of a cushion.

    Poppy, you're probably not any more accident prone than anyone else who actually works on a farm. I think if you are on any kind of farm and really working, you're going to hurt yourself, at least a little bit. Growing up, mom wouldn't even let me in the house if I had been mending fence or anything until I at least rinsed my hands off to see how many cuts I had. She didn't want any blood accidentally dripping in her house. She was always amazed at how many cuts, scrapes, etc dad and I would get after spending a day doing barn and fence repairs.

    Gilly - I have to say that I love that quote from zombie Marie Curie. I don't find too many other people that are fans of XKCD. I love those comics. I'm a big fan of geek humor. This is one of my favorites:

    Haha I'm not talking scrapes. I've broken over 7 ribs, have a knee cap that doesn't stay in place then the other knee is missing some ligaments. Have 3 herniated discs, a separation in my spine, my spine in my neck is starting to bend the other way, already have arthritis in my spine, have a twisted hip in which the ball doesn't sit in the socket right, damaged some nerves in my left elbow, broken several toes, 5 concussions. My right ankle pops constantly and I currently can't walk a full stride because a nerve is pinched in my hip.

    Hehe I'm kinda accident prone. Oh yea and it's all from riding or my years in karate.

    Oh yea and I just started actually working on a farm lol.
