Bruise Watch 2008

On July 19th I went swimming with Griffen. When dogs swim their claws tend to stick out a bit further, as they are batting at the water when they paddle around. Griffen is an especially enthusiastic swimmer. He loves swimming and cannot contain his excitement when he's in the water. As a result we have to be careful with his claws when he heads toward either of us, vacant stare in his eyes, and goofy grin on his face.

He managed to claw me when went swimming that day. This bruise was caused by one of his claws scratching me when he dumbly swam at me with his "Oh I am having such a good time I love you" expression on his face.

Today, July 29th, 10 days after the incident, I still have a nasty bruise. You can actually see the line in the center of the bruise where the claw made contact with my skin.

I look hot.

And I was whining about three different single bruises from collecting firewood.

Hey, feel free to update my listing in your blogroll. I think I'm home now.

Dang, I agree with Heidi! Do you usually bruise easily and/or badly? I've been hit with bats and not bruised up that much!

OUCH! Damn girl, if I remember correctly you bruise pretty easily.

All I have to do is stand in the doorway of a darkened room that has a coffee table in it and my shins will automatically form pre-emptive bruises.
