So I ended up getting a black eye for Christmas. It looks awful. So no holiday pictures this year. I was lying on my tummy face to face with Zoey and I was trying to teach her to do the patty cake rhyme. So we were playing around and then I asked her to give me a high five, which she knows how to do. But high fives are not meant to be done lying down. She up with her paw to do it and missed my hand. Her nails came right down across my eye, scratching it inside, put a slight tear in my lower lid, and caused it to bleed. Quite a bit. I kept an ice cold cloth against my face for a while to bring the swelling down but in no time it was bruised and now it’s a full blown black eye. It wasn’t Zoey’s fault. We were playing and it was an accident. I hope it doesn’t stay like this too long. I’ve never had a black eye before so I don’t know how long these normally last.
