Dog eats man's toe...

You wonder if some stories are true...

Dog chews off Michigan man's toe, saves his life - Yahoo! News

"That night, I woke up and looked down at my foot, and it was wet. When I looked it was blood, and there was the dog looking at me with a [COLOR=#366388 !important][COLOR=#366388 !important]blood [COLOR=#366388 !important]mustache[/COLOR][/COLOR][/COLOR]."

Sure he was drunk.... but hey....

I'm a T2 diabetic, so I'm well aware of the importance of checking your feet - especially the bottom that can be damaged. A lot of diabetics also have a condition called neurotrophy, in which you lose feelings in your limbs (e.g. feet).

My doctor told me about a case many years ago where this guy sat on his recliner and his dog would lick the bottom of his one foot every night. He never thought about it, but when he went in to the hospital for another condition, they found a "hole" the size of a 50-cent piece that went to the bone.

He had to have plastic surgery to fill the void...
