Have you ever done something, and as soon as you did.......you thought, uh oh, that was stupid.
Well, I did that tonight. Rick and I were watching a movie, and Buddy ( the weird corgi mix that was my mom's)
started chewing on something strange and hard. He was lying in the floor at my feet. Now Buddy is old,
and arthritic, and has had some problems with his teeth. So, I am thinking what ever he is chewing on,
needs to go.........yep, I reached down to take what turned out to be a Brazil nut from him, and he nailed
my thumb. I have a really nasty bite, man it hurt like the dickens! All Rick and I could think of, is
oh hell, we have a gig next week, thank god it's not the hand you chord the guitar with. Ha,Ha!
Buddy is now sitting by Rick's desk, looking very sheepish.......he knows he is on my list. Now, I have to figure out how to hold a pick with band-aids on my thumb. Buddy has always been a snapper, and I knew to always be extra careful when giving him his treats.......I can promise you, I will never try to take a Brazil nut away from him again, ugh!
You know, that is where as a human I screwed up, our dogs become such a part of our household, our family, that we forget.......no matter how cute they are, they are animals. Buddy gave me a painful
reminder of that tonight. Painful lesson learned tonight, first one of the new year.
