    Ouch! I have done the same thing and stuck my finger into a dog’s mouth on more than one occasion! Next time I might remember your photos and leave the dog to choke :Hilarious

    Ouch that looks very sore.
    I would be the exact same with Tilly or any of my clients dogs.
    U really don't realised how much you use even just one finger till its immobile. I've had two broken fingers with my job & that was bad enough.
    On a dog walking page im on a lady lost the tip of one finger saving a dog chocking on a tennis ball.

    Wow, that looks super sore!:(
    I do exactly the same though and stick my hand in my dogs mouth if they have something they shouldn't . The times I used to have to stick my fingers down a dogs throat to retrieve a half chewed bit of rawhide that had got stuck. That was before I realised how rawhide was actually processed, they don't have it now.!
    I do hope you're finger heals well, and that you're not too sore.

    Owww, hope your finger can make a full recovery. Will admit to doing the same when Peggy was a baby, she had a bit of lamb ear stuck on her back tooth and started chocking.

    Makes you remember how gentle dogs usually are with us squishy humans.

    If being made of velcro and a constant supply of toys in my lap counts as an apology :p

    He's got a big mouth! :Hilarious

    This is my full range of motion thus far, and even that feels like my knuckle is going to pop open :Bag
    At least I've got a couple weeks off work ha

    As 02.0 says that for such a short period is an excellent range of motion, keep up the exercises, perhaps Frodo would like to help you somehow!
    Frow toys for me and it will make you feel much better if you take that glove off your hand to do it :eek:

    Whoa! That's a nasty cut! I'm glad there's no hard feelings between the two of you:)

    Those first pictures of your pups reminded me of my dog that passed away a few months ago, he was always making silly faces, and showing of his pretty teeth...oh I miss that dog.

    Dief is considerate enough to lick pate off my fingers instead of munching. I also find biteyface a mesmerizing game.

    Ouch! That made me wince. You poor thing.

    It is moments like that though you truly appreciate the power behind those pearly whites! I remember our old family dog biting down on my arm in mistake of a toy and I fell to the ground in agony, swearing away at how much it hurt...and he only grazed me in comparison!

    So late to the party!

    You poor wee thing! I did wonder how it happened...as I said on Instagram post Hiccup and Gwen to me if need be!

    It's amazing how easily them teeth go through fingers...I didn't do it as spectacular as you...but years ago with Jasper our old dog he had something stuck in his mouth too, and silly my put fingers in to get it..straight through my finger! Nail hasn't grown right since.

    One more week on!
    Still feels like being electrocuted if I stretch my arm out; pins and needles as standard and the occasional sharp stingy stabby pain

    Doctor says fine to go back to work, but physio says no heavy lifting and my stitches are still there, so not so sure how well my job of *bulk delivery* and *fish tank maintenance* would get done :Bag

    Bluejay I wont put the photo's on here of OH's fingers when he had his crushed, as they will probably make some one throw up, but trust me you have no idea how lucky you are, do any physio exercises continually to maintain movement. You may well find that that finger is often very cold, just to forewarn you.
