Memories of dogs and toilet paper

Today's Cute Overload bought back some bad memories from a kid. The picture, not the one above, showed a dog and a cat who got into a lot of toilet paper.
When I was about 9 or so, we had a dog that got into the toilet paper and I was gathering it up. The trail ended under my bed. I stuck my head under the bed. The dog and the toilet paper were under there and when I reached for the roll, the dog took a swipe across my face.
My Mom told me it looked like a horror movie. There was blood everywhere and I came running out into the hall and probably passed out. I went to the hospital in an ambulance and thank goodness for the plastic surgeon on duty that night because it is barely noticeable today.
When I got home, Mom covered the mirrors because she thought I would be afraid to see my severely swollen face. I was very very luck that he missed my eye by millimeters. My parents told me the dog went to the farm. Little did I know it was the big farm in the sky. I was upset that the dog was gone.
Seeing that picture just brought back a flood of memories.
I still love you Cute Overload though!
