Speaking of which the other day our 7 year old very well behaved springer spaniel attacked me. He latched onto my ear and nearly ripped it off. Result: a nice tear through the ear and the same behind it and a gaping wound on my thumb as i rescued my ear. Most disconcerting when, as blood poured down my neck and my daughter is screaming, the dog is chewing something.
A bit of TCP dabbed on the wounds and 10 days later they are healing well although the thumb is numb.
My A&E consultant colleague said it should have been stitched. Oh well just a flesh wound
