Dang, I Hurt!!!

Last night, just around this time, I took my dog out for her last stroll of the evening.  She's on an invisible fence, so no leash required.  I do however like to be with her at night when she goes out so she doesn't run into critters.

 

We no sooner went out the back door, onto the concrete patio, and heard hissing.  A raccoon was about 6" off of the patio.  My girl immediately wanted to go after it.  As I was grabbing her by her collar I managed to tangle my feet with my very heavy patio table.  I went down hard and fast.  My right arm is seriously scraped up,and black and blue, as I had on a short sleeve tee.  My right hip and thigh look hideous. The black and blues just showed up and are ugly everywhere.  Thankfully at my age, I didn't break a thing, managed to keep the dog away from the raccoon, so all's well that ends well.  But dang, I HURT!!!  LuLu

Sorry you took a dive and injured yourself but you were wise to grab the dog.  A big raccoon will tear a dog apart.  They have teeth like needles, plus they can carry rabies.
