Well, the inevitable happened today! I bent down to give Duffy a hug and he reached up and grabbed my dangling earring. Pierced ear kind of earring. I felt the tug before I realized he had it in his mouth and reached up to grab hold of the base of it before he could rip it out....and shouted "leave it!" He is NOT very reliable with the leave it command and the only thing that saved me was that it was thin enough to slip through his teeth.

Of course I ran to the bathroom to assess for blood -- thankfully there was no tear.

I had thought of the potential of this happening since the day I got Duffy and always have been very conscientious of my earrings -- but there is always the day that the guard is let down. And today was it.

Hopefully, I will be extra careful from now on. I was lucky this time.

I'm glad your earlobe is intact. I only wear studs but once Jamie managed to pull one of them out. Luckily I didn't lose it or the back.

Thank goodness your ear was ok. I have done that before and was lucky too.

Thanks! The thought of it still makes me shudder....knowing how close I was to a disaster!
