Don't call me scarface!

Yesterday I decided to take the Js for a walk down to the beach. On the way we saw a lovely Airedale and I thought I should go over and say hello. I sniffed her undercarriage politely but then she got slightly cross and bit me on the ear! I was quite taken aback and there was LOADS of blood. Luckily we were quite near the vet and so I was rushed straight there for stitches. So that's another scar to add to my collection. I hope it doesn't ruin my good looks.

Since then my ear has gone all sticky-uppy, but I think it's just because it's a bit sore. Want to take a look?

You can't see the wound from the front, so here's a view from behind...

What do you think? Still as handsome as ever?
Anyway, it turns out that the Airedale is called Buffy. I am rather worried because as we all know from the TV series, Buffy is a vampire slayer. Does that mean I'm a vampire and she was trying to slay me? Remember last year I had some concerns about my vet being a vampire cos he's always taking my blood (you can refresh your memory by clicking here)? I now fear the worst!

Oh dude...she got you good. Mom always says there is a reason female dogs are called what they are!

Don't worry...chicks dig scars.


Faya said...

Oh no Jackson.... I hope you don't think airedales are all like Buffy......I am so sorry for your ear. You are still very very very handsome..
Kisses, Faya

Blue said...

Ooooh, this is seriously worrying!
Jackson, vampourised - dare I ever visit again???
Yes, of course, no Buffy Airedale can defeat the Jax.

Sorry, about the scars - guess you now have more 'street cred'.
Presume JI kissed it better... LOL!

Love, pats & pets

Sophie Brador said...

Holy Doodles Jax! That ear looks ouchy. I'm pretty sure you are not a vampire, but Buffy must have mistook you for one. You could always tell her about your vet. Maybe she'll go bite his ear too. I could also volunteer to swim across the pond and take a round out of Buffy for you.


Joe Stains said...

I have an ear injury too, I think it means we are so totally PAWESOME. I hope yours heals up soon!

Jake of Florida said...

Perhaps she was just so carried away by your good looks that she couldn't control herself.

Be careful of infections though -- a puncture was how JH got to wear his collar for ten days,

We're two guys, so we may not be the best judges -- but we think you still are handsome. Don't fret about that!!

Charlie Daniels said...

G'day Jackson

Wow Buffy sure slayed your ear! She must have been really hungry.



Wiry Axel said...

I can't believe you were bitten by a Dale. How awful! If you start howling at the moon we'll know she is a vampire..oh hang on..we all howl at the moon. Hee hee.


Gus said...

Now that is one gross ear. congratulations

Lorenza said...

Hi, Jackson!
I can see that dale girl was not so happy with your "greetings"!
I hope your ear heals soon!
Take care

Kirby said...

Hi Jackson,

Ouch, I'm so sorry about the chomp to your ear. On behalf of all Airedales, I apologize. We are not all like Buffy. I think your ear with its stitches and all looks pretty tough, and all the ladies love a tough guy. Work it for all you've got!

Your pal,

Asta said...

I'm on my way..that needs vewy special attention..I think you awe devestatingly handsome..this doesn't change a thing
smoochie kisses

Girl Girl Hamster said...

But you still look very handsome

~ Girl girl

Pacco de Mongrel said...

maybe next time we shld really ask politely to see whether the dogs let us sniff them out a not

sharkgila said...

ouchie, that looks nasty.
Nasty, nasty Buffy!

You're still handsome, and just that much more macho for your scar! Take care.


Maggie & Mitch said...

OMG, Jackson! We must apologize for her rude behavior! What was she thinking?! We hope you don't think that all of us girlie Dales are like Buffy! We hope your ear feels better today!

Love ya lots,
Maggie and Mitch

Amber-Mae said...

Don't ever let looks fool ya! That Buffy girl sure was very mean to bite you like that. Your ear looks really icky right now! Poor you. Hopefully it'll heal up soon.

Agatha and Archie said...

Dear Jax,Archie here,Um Agatha is on her way(she brought chips and dip with her to snack on) I uh,will not be able to come, as I ah,well I, you see I once saw Buffy the Vampire show on tv and had to take a tranquilizer so I think I will wait till the girls patch you up.....Stay strong( more to deal with the girls than the ear) Don't worry Aggie and I each have about 40000 ear bites( WFT induced) and they give you character. Love Archie

Petey said...

Hi Jackson!

Harrison Ford has a scar and my Mommy thinks he's pretty sexy - you can be the Indiana Jones/Hans Solo of WFTs!!! And as for the one ear that stands up, well, I was that way for several months when I was a pup (my ears are supposed to both stand up) and looked like I was always about to take a right turn. One still doesn't go all the way up and you know what? It gives us character!

Your pal,


Penny, Poppy & Patches said...

You are still VERY handsome, Jackson! We're sorry that Aire-girl attacked you...I hope her pawrents at least paid for your vet visit! Sounds like she needs more socializing.

Poppy, Penny & Patches

Asta Marie said...

Oh Jackson...how terrible that an airdale bit you so hard it nearly tore your ear off!!!! And one named Buffy too...I would be worried that Buffy was a VAMPIRE and not a slayer of one...polite doggies do not try to remove other doggie's ears. I see that you have a team of nurses on the way....so I am sure that you will be healed in no time...ear wounds do bleed profusley so I am sure it was traumatic for everyone involved.....get well, Jackson....

Asta Marie, WFT

Tatum Tot said...

Yikes that wasn't very nice! I wouldn't bite your ear, but I'd want to play!

Toffee said...


You look just as handsome as ever! Don't worry the scar you get will make you seem like a more MYSTERIOUS terrier!


Anonymous said...

Noah the Airedale said...

Crikey J, we sure hope you're ok. Mind you, the scare gives you a kind of tough image...the girls think you look as handsome as ever.

Hugs and tail wags

Ruby Bleu said...

Oh Jax...you poor boy. I hope you are feeling better. And YES you are still most handsome.

Shame on the Buffy airegirl!!!But I don't think you have anything to worry about...unless you are sensitive to light? Are you sensitive to light???? Better keep an eye out for that!!!

Feel better!

Lots of Licks, Ruby

Snowball said...

Jax that is why you should never be friendly to strangers! If you bite first you have the upper paw.

Eric said...

Yikes Jackson.That's one nasty old bite Biffy gave you on your lughole. How are you dude? Feline better I hope? BTW Mom says you are still one very foxy handsome boy.

Mmm bit worried for you bout the vampire thing though can I ask...er... if your pearly whites are ok ... not grown one or two sharp ones lately? Paws crossed you don't...

4xBs said...

hi Jackson, that is a very serious looking injury. you totally did not deserve that. we think it adds character to your rugged handsome good looks.


Willow the Black Dale said...

Jackson...I ran over hear when I heard about your Vampire bite. We haven't met yet but I was very worried to say the least. I am a Black Dale and I promise I will never bite you. The bite does make you look tough!!! You are still a cutie. Hmmmm I have never met a biting Dale.

Body wags,

William Tell said...

So some girl dogs don't like their undercarriage sniffed? Good to know, I need to write this down. Girls are so hard to understand sometimes. We need a manual.

Hope your ear heals back good as new.

Happy Tails,
William Tell

jaffeboy said...

That was on nasty B**ch you met. What's her problem?!

I hope it'll heal up real soon. I got bitten on the ear too & a piece of it came off. My blood stained a good part of Pa's white T-shirt. It was nasty. Had to be bandage around my head! grrrr...

U rest up ok buddy.

Kaylie wants to tell you not to worry about your looks cos it's hard to take your good look away!

Luna "The Scruffy Yacht Dog" said...

Hey Jax

Have your mom go by Scruffy,Lacie, and Stan's place, you might be getting Beer and peanut butter for your war injuries!! Seeing that it works.


The Aphasia Decoder.... said...

I'm happy to hear you were close to a vet to get stitched up. That must have been a scary experience! You are still handsome, but I'll bet you'll keep your nose out of private parts from now on.

Levi' mom

erin said...

Wow! That looks pretty bad, Jackson. I know you're really tough but still, that must have hurt! I hope you're starting to feel better now.
PS. My girl is a big fan of the one ear up look.

Molly and Taffy said...


We have just returned form our holiday. We are most upset to read about your meeting with such a naughty Airedale. I, Molly, would never ever do such a thing.
We do hope your ear heals very quickly.

Lenny said...

Jackson!! I can't believe she bit you. Did she try and tear your ear off? I hope you feel better really soon.

Hey, when I met A+A their PL2 said that she thought that you and I definitely look alike! Maybe you should start a "Handsome Wires" club too! :)

Your friend, Lenny

MISS PEACH >(^.^) said...

Dearest Jackson my pip of a pal! That is a serious ouchie you got yourself by being a super nice doggie. Sometimes it just does not seem fair does it, being the nice guy with poilte manners and then you get it CHOMP on the listeners. Soft kisses on the sore spot.
BTW I sure do love my Stringer!
Love from your pal Miss Peach

Butchy & Snickers said...

Ooooh no, poor Jackson. We're still playing catch-up on the bloggies. Your poor ear. We do hope it's healing ok. Why did she have to bite you so hard?? Mean girl. Did the owners even say anything?? We bet your ear will go back down after it's all better. Have a great week.
Luv & Wirey Hugs!
Butchy & Snickers
