Dobie Inflicted Bang Up's

Have been talking to some posters on here , and someway we got to talking about some of the bang ups we have had I will start off with one of my many bang ups with our Dobers

So spill your stories so we can all have a laugh , with you

So back in around 2002 - I was playing with Kasia , I walked over to pick up her ball , well she is lots quicker than dad and as I just about had her ball , she grabbed it , I was bent over and when she grabbed it , she threw her head up and made connection with her smart bump on top of her head and my eye brow - I was on the floor holding my head , I have never been hit that hard ever , ever ! I was there laying on the floor - wife seen it all happen ! She jumped up and ran to Kasia and asked her if she was OK ! Not one thing about me ! I could feel my eye swelling shut , matter of fact it was swollen shut for a week

Went to town a few days latter to the elevator and to other farm supply stores - everyone of them looked at my eye and started laughing and laughing - then said Dog ? I replied yep !

Trust me , I have many more . what's your story -- Stories !!!!!!!!

Bug -- Meadowcat -- Dobegal -I know ! I know you all have some good ones !

Hey Ken, I guess it's about time to resurrect the Dober Inflicted Injuries subject again.

FYI, Here's last long thread on same subject from 2014:

the latest one is with the boy. I was looking under the furniture for their toys and of course he comes running over because I found his hidden stash. Well my forehead and his head made contact. I swear I was already on the floor and that just put me on the ground even further. That was two weeks ago and I still have a bruise on my forehead. Another time with one of my past girls we were play ball I was holding the ball close to my chest and yep you guess it, snip on the boob trying to get the ball. I have had bloody noses, split lips and too many bruises on my legs to count. It's part of lovin this breed

Mocha bloodied my lip once when she raised her head real fast like that but the worst one was when we were outside playing and she got close to me and did the famous Doberman spin and her back end hit me in the side of the leg, right at the knee. I thought she had torn or damaged my ACL, it hurt so bad. I was limping for a few days...had no idea of the true strength she had, lots of muscle on that 60-pound frame.

Well, right country, even if the wrong breed, but Leo has inflicted several injuries over the years. She gave me a concussion and whiplash when I leaned over to pick up one of Ilka's dummies, and she raised her head up tight into my face. She body-slammed me, knocking me down onto a one-point landing on my bad hip. She ran into me during a training session, and knocked my bad knee out of whack (I was in a brace for a couple of weeks after that one).

Looked back at that old thread because I didn't know if I had told one of my stock stories there……

Anyway, here's a few I can think of right off the bat—which I know I've told before, but maybe some of you haven't heard them….

_______________________________________________

There's the time when I came home and was greeted by Katana. I leaned over a little; she started her happy dance at the same time. She was smiling; I was smiling. Our teeth collided.

Dog teeth are definitely stronger than people teeth. I ONLY had a corner of one of my front teeth broken off, which I got fixed without TOO much trouble. But I did get some little hairline cracks across the teeth—nothing troublesome exactly—but you could see the lines if you really looked. And eventually they contributed to my decision to get caps all across the front. I mean, I did have some decay that had nothing to do with it, but, it was a case of "Why not, while you're fixing this…..?"

_______________________________________________

And then there was the time I was obedience training Caesar. I was looking down at him and encouraging him to look up at me. He got a little too encouraged and bounced (you know how they do.) The top of his head hit my cheekbone, broke my glasses, and gave me a lovely black eye.

Oh well, that's life with dobes, par for the course—except then I had to go into work with the black eye. All week long I got commiserating looks from the patients I drew blood from, and at least once, I came around the corner in the lab to meet a little cluster of co-workers whispering away, who fell guiltily silent when they saw me. I just knew they were discussing my black eye and speculating how I REALLY got it.

None of them were dobe owners.

________________________________________________

And the time when the ex, then a SO, was rolling around playing on the floor one evening with Caesar puppy. Caesar got his ear, ripped a flap of skin off—we couldn't get it to stop bleeding (I wasn't particularly handy with butterfly bandages at that point) so he went to the ER. The trauma of that time was that they then insisted that Caesar should be put into isolation in their kennel facilities (he was too young for his rabies shot, you see.) So I involved the vet and we put pressure on the "authorities" about the major problems of isolating a 9 week old puppy, and they finally said we could watch him at home, IF we signed a paper relieving THEM of all responsibility if we got rabies.

____________________________

And then…….

Let's just say that I learned early that if a dobe is doing the zoomies straight at you, YOU stand still and let him swerve past. Because he will, (probably), and if you try to avoid him, you will move the same way he does, and you WILL crash into each other.

Oh, and always keep your knees bent…

There are so many.....

Running a ring in PA. Outdoors. Everybody knew everybody including the judge. Got down to the last two obstacles clean. Up the dog walk and a hard right to the tire. Bacc's running style was Mr. Control at the beginning but by the last few obstacles he would be 'booming' and this day was no different. He came down the dog walk, hit the contact and I spun hard right and sent him through the tire. Q! Then as I was absentminded walking in front of the tire I yelled "COME" and was looking at where the leash was hanging. Evidently Bacc assumed I wanted him to back jump the tire and he did. All 94# and in boom mode. He hit me with his shoulder in the side of my chest and his head caught me on the side of my head/face. He hit me so hard it knocked my feet out from under me sideways. When I hit the ground I landed on my side with my elbow tucked against my rib cage. It was like a double hit to my ribs. I remember the pain.....my face, my ribs. As I laid there sucking air, Sandy Moody the judge yelled "MARY!!! ARE YOU OK?" All I could manage was a wave of my hand kind of like Queen Elizabeth. I slowly, very slowly got up and got the leash on Bacc then exited the ring. I was sure I had a broken rib or two. I didn't realize the side of my face was swelling. But we had our Q. LOL Ribs not broken but bruised and it took about a month before I could run without painful breathing. My face.....six months later the cheek bone was still tender. All my own doing. You're not a real agility handler unless your dog takes you down in the ring.

Newtie has given me my fair share of scratches and bruises, but Brandy's the one with the stories to tell. When we lived in our old house, we had a tie out for her and as I was clipping it to her collar, for some reason, she flung her head back to look at me. Got me right in the chin and made me bite my tongue so hard it bled.
Another time I was taking her for a walk and sat down on a bench to look out over the river for a minute. She saw something and took off after it practically dragging me off the bench. My shoulder hurt for weeks! I'm pretty sure I had at least a partial rotator cuff tear.

I've had a lot of encounters with parts of Dobermans over my years with dogs but one of the best did no lasting damage but sure made a lot of people laugh.

My very best tracking dog was a male who truly believed that Dobes melted if exposed to water--he avoided puddles, I once pushed him off a little dock and unlike every other dog I'd ever done that to he sank like a stone--we thought we were going to go diving for him--he finally bobbed to the surface--located land and headed that way--but he didn't speak to me for a week But when it came to tracking--his attitude was "Water?, what water?"

He thought tracking was more fun than anything he'd ever done.

So I met with a group of women about 40 miles from home every Wednesday for over three years and my favorite tracking dog was Colt. And one Wednesday a local tracking judge who occasionally tracked with us was along and she laid a track for Colt that went down into and about 50 feet along a drainage ditch of a grass field. Yes, of course I wear boots when tracking--but this was a particularly deep ditch (and I asked her about it later--"Oh," she said " I wasn't in the water--but I crossed the ditch and walked on the other side but the wind must have blown the scent back to the side you were on..." I swear she did it on purpose--nice lady, great performance judge for lots of things including tracking but she had a warped sense of humor.

So I was following Colt when he went down the bank into this dratted drainage ditch, took a right turn and went straight down the middle of the ditch--yes, of course I followed him. And it had been raining a lot for several weeks so after two steps my boots filled up with water and I could hardly lift them and then I stepped in a hole--that left me up to my armpits in water--Colt looked over his shoulder to see why I was being so slow.

The track layer and most of the rest of the people who were tracking that day could hardly contain themselves--talk about laughing. They were behind us--I didn't look--I didn't want to know! We went at least 40 feet down that ditch before Colt climbed out--he was soaked--I think he was swimming part of the way. The laughers had to hoist me out. I emptied my boots and followed Colt down to the end of the track where he found the article--a sock--one of his favorites--he threw it high in the air and then brought to me.

I was, very, very wet--someone found a tarp that smelled like cows in their pick up and loaned it to me--I didn't stay to go out to lunch that day--I smelled like ditch water and cows. One of the best tracks my dog every did though.

I'd have settled for the normal black eye...

I think Bella was 2 and we were leaving for a nice walk and adventure together, the neighbor went by on his motorcycle.... I did not see or hear him until he was very close... blind corner. Bella lunged towards him, my right ring finger was caught in the long leash, which I gripped as I was concerned about the neighbor as the road drops off very steeply and it would not be a good place to loose control of a any bike.
OUCH
A trip to urgent care for me, luckily there wasn't much pain, I iced it continually and MK drove. "Jersey finger" tendon injury plus twist, 2 fractures on ring finger and one that was never treated on my pinky. 10 days later I had a GREAT surgeon, he retrieved the tendon and reattached the bone avulsion very creatively.
So there I was with this strange open air hard plastic cast several evenings later, when Bella saw a bunny and dragged me over. I couldn't put my injured arm down, the other hand had the leash, so I went down on my face in the dirt and got a big fat lip. The hard cast bruised me but protected my injured hand.
I am hoping that Loki will not cause MK or me to have any further injuries! Good Luck! He is definately more of a softie/ chicken than Bella.

I guess I should also add that I have ligament damage in both shoulders because of dogs. Ilka tore up my right shoulder, and Leo my left.

And then there was the time when I was walking all three dogs at the time, Lucky, Ilka, and Leo (who was maybe 6 months old). As we were walking by a house, and dog came around the corner, and all three of mine lunged at it. I might have been able to hang on to all 120 pounds combined, but I tripped on the cracked sidewalk... Thankfully, there was a fence, so the only injuries were mine. I had to hobble the mile back home with skinned knees and hands and a busted lip.

I also sprained my ankle while walking Ilka and Leo one day, and had to have my husband come rescue us.

It's friends like that that you don't need.

Reminds me of the time I was out riding and headed across a smallish sluggishly flowing bayou, with water a bit more than knee deep on my horse. He wasn't particularly happy about it all, just waded across rather doubtfully, snuffling at the water.

Until suddenly, right in the deepest place, he folded his legs and plopped himself down into the water. I told him he had no business acting like that, but I also got mighty wet.

And the friend I was with? She just sat on her horse and laughed and laughed—from the safety of the bank.

Oh God I have to drag out the broken foot story again!

In June of 2003, I showed my first show dog at my club specialty - which at that time was still an independent specialty with an entry of about 100 ..... all Doberman people. I had never been in a show ring before and my Velma was about 7 months old. We did ok in futurity, but in the regular class (6-9 months), she veered in front of me on our first go around and I tripped over her. I took a big hop trying not to fall and landed on the toes of my left foot - my foot went the wrong direction and literally snapped in half ( a lis franc fracture with dislocation). I never did fall down but was now hopping on my right foot. A friend ran in and took Velma, I left in an ambulance. The class went on - haha. 3 months non-weight bearing and two operations to try and put my foot back together. It did not heal well, and to this day hurts all the time. I lost most of the feeling in the big toe.
Such is life - all other dog mishaps have paled in comparison ...... so far - haha!!

Did you win? That's the question. LOL

My story is about the same as ECIN's. I just remember that Rebel had something I didn't want him to have, and I went and leaned over him to grab it and up came his head right into my face. Split my lip open and I had a black eye. It was a good thing my husband was in Japan on business at the time or I'm sure people would have thought I was a domestic abuse case.

Excellent question Mary ! How did I let that one slide ? LOL

You know - I didn't realize that the ring was so dangerous

Back in the summer of 2001 - There was around 3 or 4 guys that had been out working in the shop at our house , it was just about dark and I told Kasia - lets walk and see whats going on , I had her hooked up with a 6 foot lead and I had on my flip flops , there was a heavy dew on already , After all the guys gave her rubs and pats , we were talking about a up coming race - She was sitting right next to me - a angle ! A proud Doberman - Then from out of nowhere - she took off - it didn't take long to hit the end of that 6 foot lead and the next thing I knew - I was laying on the ground on my back and both flip flops had come off - remember they have NO traction ! Well of course the guys were just about down on the ground laughing there rear ends off , did't take long for that one to get around at the tracks and In town


The one that could have been bad was on the 12th of this month ! I brought in little girl and gave her to my wife , then I came out and hooked up big boy to introduce them , I had him on my left , wife and girl was on my right - so I'm in between them ( protection ) Mr. B just could not see her very well the way I was standing , he needed a better look - I had him very , very short and when he decided he needed a better look - he drove into my left knee from the side and behind it , Next thing I knew I bounced off the floor , left knee leading the way , BTW - I held on to him ! I think I scared him and he came checking on me , good boy ! Knee was stiff for 2 days - But I never told the wife it was
