first, i realize this is MY FAULT, but can anyone help?

sent the b-dog on a "revier" tonight w/out clearing the line; the end of it caught me at the ankle at about 30 mph, and now i have this REALLY good line-burn.

tips on how to best heal it up (my dear daughter already poured peroxide over it to clean it out, thank her VERY much), i've been iceing (sp?) it. should i keep it *moist* with like vaseline, or let it dry out and peel off? it burned down to blood in a couple of minor places, but mostly just took 6/7 layers of skin off. oh, and if it makes a dif, goes around 5/8 of my ankle.

the main thing is: the b-boy went a HELLIN' when he went!! a hellin': ears flat, TOP speed, sounded like a frickin' horse, god what a sight :) :) (even as i was on my a$$ watching him ). now to *control* that, and get it *on call*.....:(

anyway, before i get too wild about the boy (!!), any help for his dumba$$ handler?

hehehe, a mistake usually only made once! If you have any panalog in your dog first aid box, put that on it. Otherwise any antibacterial ointment will help. If it leaves a scar, make up a cool story about it.

The most important thing is the dog did a grrrrrrrrreat blind search, good job!

We keep gallons of triple antibiotic salve in our kits. Burns, scrapes, scratches etc heal pretty quickly. We have rules of etiquitte when similar situations happen. First we make sure the injury is not severe, then we laugh at you. Here's to quick healing.

yeah, we laughed about it last night (after i cried during application on hydr. peroxide :() cause cait was about 150 yds away, didn't see it happen, and thought i was just sitting on my butt resting :) :) :) her thought was "mom, your shorts will get dirty, why are you sitting THERE?"

and yes, i think (hope!) this is my first and LAST time for this particular little stunt--it BURNS :-({|= ....

anne, i'm gonna check that stuff out-thanks!

Ouch...that just happened to a guy in our group but it was burns to his hands.

Aren't we a strange group? You know there will be a day (or two or three) when you will proudly show off that scar. It was the day your dog ran like hell and nailed the blind search! :)

I guess some things are just universal across all realms of dog training :smile:
isn't that about right?? get the scars, make up stories (or not), laugh about what dumb-a$$es we can be.

i'm thinkin' there oughta be a "biggest dumba$$" prize somewhere!! i could win it !!!!!!
