A friend of mine has had her jaw dislocated when a dog came straight up under it. Top of lab heads are HARD.

Now, imagine your co-workers nodding and saying, "Uh-huh." when you try to explain that you got decked by a Lab.

i bet.
now imagine their horror when you tell them it was a pit bull! :-)

That's kind of what I was thinking. I train my dogs too, but I'm not sure how training would prevent a dog's head moving into my chin at the wrong moment. Mustang Sally

Yup. And it wasn't lack of training that caused Ender to slip on the ice and trip me with the big leg that ended up under my feet. I had a nice little knot on the back of my head for a few days after that little doggie mishap. I suppose a well trained dog would tuck his legs under him in a safe and neat fashion, but oh well.

I'm just glad that he was confused enough from his own fall not to notice the prime opportunity (dazed owner = loose grip) and head for the hills. Instead he gave me a kiss and checked my coat pockets for treats.

My dog is far from perfectly trained, but any injuries I've had from him haven't been due to lack of training. His head has collided with my head during scritching sessions; he's run into me because he can't see me; I've stupidly twisted the leash around my hand at just the wrong time while jogging and nearly ended up with a broken finger, etc.

happens.
Oh, and I rode a dog when I was 3 and have a facial scar to show for it, but I don't consider that an instance of *** happening.

... How many here have been injured by dogs, or know someone who has?

Only scratches, abrasions and bruises here, with a little scarring. I never blame the dog.
So far, all of the physical injuries have healed completely. Of course, there is one injury that will never heal, this side of The Bridge: my heart.

I haven't been injured by my dogs. I train them.

What an unjustifiably arrogant response! You just earned a filter.

Uh huh. The only attacking here is coming from you, diddy, per usual.

Diddy and I don't see eye-to-eye on every topic, including this one; but to say she is on the attack "per usual" is certainly absurd.

No PMS here.

Does tripping over a black, sleeping dog in the dead of night count as the dog injuring me? I think ... looked at me like I had three heads. I have learned to not travel through my house in the dark.

Oh, I forgot the time I stepped on Dylan's muzzle in the dark. She's a mostly black GSD, and she normally gives warning growlies when I get close to her in the dark, but this time she didn't. She gave a good loud roar when I stepped on her, but the only injury to me was a cut on the bottom of my foot from one of her teeth (not a bite). As far as I could tell, I didn't injure her. I'm grateful she didn't take my foot off, given the circumstances!
Now I practice shuffling as I cross the bedroom in the dark.

I don't mind coming to work, but that eight hour wait to go home is a ***.

No more or less absurd than her statements regading Melinda attacking her, and the old cabal paranoia.
