And this is why I love Martha Stewart…

Martha Stewart just had a bit of a run-in with her French bulldog, Francesca. Ms Stewart went to great pains to point out that it was her own fault, not the dog’s (and frankly I believe her, having had a dust-up once with my cat that was completely due to my ignoring his clear warning signs of impending bloodshed). She had to make a trip to the ER to get her upper lip stitched up. And she documented her entire visit – mostly with pictures of her injury and treatment, but also with this priceless gem:

Oh snap!

I suppose I’ve always felt something of an affinity for her meticulous eye and rather tightly-wound demeanor, if only because I’m much the same way (though not nearly so capable when it comes to home craft projects – my hands are just too shaky… I do a pretty good job in the kitchen though) And yet she’s always demonstrated a pretty great sense of humor, even at her own expense. For example, the time she appeared on Conan O’Brien’s old show and happily tucked into a Taco Bell bean burrito and a 40 oz bottle of malt liquor at his behest. I couldn’t find the original, but here’s Martha’s visit to Conan during his last week as host of Late Night.

“Black salt.” Oh, that is rich…

Oh, and here’s a picture of Francesca the bulldog. I think she was already plotting revenge for being forced to wear this costume…

"I will cut a bitch..."

And this was the most germane comment re. dog attacks on Gawker, from CrabbyChic:

This is why I like teh kittehs. At least I KNOW mine are actively plotting against me, whereas dogs will just one day snap like postal worker Tea Party ballerinas

So true…
