“falling ass over teacup.”

i don’t know where it came from, but i know how to do it.  i did it this morning, in fact, when i was hit from behind by cody bear and pickles running hell-on-paws after a cat.  they ran right through me, knocking me into the air completely horizontal to the earth.  i came crashing down flat, with just my right elbow lower than the rest of me.

i tried to find my ass print, but that was long gone.

they hit me so hard that one of my “not uggs” slippers flew about 15 feet or so.  i lay there stunned, wondering what was going to hurt the most.  sort of afraid to move.

the back is ok.  the cat is long gone.  the dogs have no idea their mom is sitting at the office with an ice pack.

dogs will be dogs, i suppose.

What a tough way for goodbear to start her day. I’ve been blindsided by dogs before and you really have to experience it to realize what a shock and blow to the body it is. Good luck with your recovery. Nice photo of the divot, by the way.

It’s a wonder you didn’t break your tea cup. Glad you weren’t badly hurt! Hope you feel better soon.

Glad you are okay. I’ve been tripped by my cats before. I remember being achy for days after! Take care of yourself. 🙂

Tucker took out my father one time while brain-cramping around the yard in New York. Wham, right in the back of the knees!

I think in my family we call that “head over tea kettle”.
