I know not to wake up a sleeping dog or approach carefully but yesterday I made a stupid mistake... Nova was very tired from a day full of adventures and had curled up to sleep on the couch. I approach her from the side to pet her and she got startled really badly. She barked, growled and snapped and unfortunately got me in the face. It’s only a teeny tiny scratch today but yesterday the whole world was ending for me. She got such a fright and me too. I screamed and she peed herself and I held my face in shock. I know 100% that was my fault and I felt truly devastated yesterday. I’m so grateful she has good bite inhibition. My husband stayed back with her while I went to the ER to get a tetanus shot. I had to wait for a long time and cried by myself in the waiting room - but luckily I had @McKenzie to message and she calmed me down a whole lot! Today you can hardly see it and Nova has forgotten all about it and is up to her usual antics. i tell you yesterday I felt so rubbish about myself and I’m still feeling a little sad today. How stupid that was of me!!! Poor husband was so worried about mine and Novas bond but she ended up sleeping snuggled up to me all night and I was holding her. I didn’t want to share at first but I feel better now that I have!
