Man's Best Friend Redux

It's not every day your dog decides to bite your nipple off.

My distinctly non-medical family often questions why I would choose to pursue a career emergency medicine, and I usually reply that the ability to deliver statements like the above in a professional context plays a large role.

According to the patient, she was lying in bed, minding her own business when Snoopy decided leap out of nowhere and take a bite out of crime... or at least breast tissue.

She earned bonus points for bringing in the nipple, piercing and all, but sadly her hopes for reattachment were ultimately in vain.
