I thought I'd share my new blue fashion accessories with you, a couple of lovely bruises on my right elbow courtesy of Jack. These are the lovely kinds of things that happen when you try to run "interference" on an 86 lb. dog, running full force towards the backyard gate as a stranger, with a strange dog, approach and enter the gate (some new friends that had never visited before). Sticking one's arm out in an attempt to stop said 86 lb. running dog does exactly nothing to slow the dog, even after hearing his owner yelp in pain. Can you say hyper-extension? Ouch, I can.
