There are certain rules every pet owner must follow if they want to avoid having their pooch accidentally mangle their face, or at least that’s what we infer from news that Martha Stewart’s dog Francesca ripped her lip open. Rule #1: Never baby-talk your French bulldog as she blissfully sails through Dreamland. “As I leaned down to whisper goodbye to a dozing Francesca, I must have startled her, because she bolted upright with such force that she hit me in the face like a boxing glove hitting an opponent’s face,” Martha explained. “I was entirely startled and my neck snapped back. I felt a bit of whiplash as blood gushed forth from my split lip.” Sometimes when you say sweet nothings into your pup’s ear, it suddenly turns into The Fighter, except less Christian Bale and slightly more slobber. Every dog owner has to be prepared for it.

Not only did Stewart describe the incident in gory detail, but she proceeded to post 34 photos of her nine stiches up on her blog.
