Apparantly this dude was passed out in a drunken stupor when his dog chewed off his toe.

From source " Dogs that bite are not ordinarily lavished with praise, but Jerry Douthett's little dog Kiko is being hailed as a lifesaver. Kiko apparently sensed an infection festering in his master's right big toe -- and chewed most of it off after Douthett passed out in a drunken stupor"

Now here's where the philosophy part comes in from astoundingly far away out in left field

"A trip to the hospital confirmed Douthett's digit required amputation, and Kiko is being heralded by his owner for helping him"

This is bizarre that the dog is being heralded isn't it? It supposedly sensed the infection and that's why it did what it did.

With a headline like that, who could resist? Crazy story! He had to be really drunk not to wake up, but then again with diabetes there is numbness in affected areas sometimes.
Need amputation and wanna save money? Drink 4-5 beers and 2 giant margaritas, leave the desired area exposed, wake up and it's done!

I sure hope the dog never gets sick from eating the toe.
That would be awful.

I got to give you a Hand for that one though


You sure don't have a problem thinking on your feet


I'm guessing that you really keep those around you on their toes

Animals have MUCH keener senses than we do. My youngest is hyperactive as hell. Our cat can't stand to be around her but if Kathy is sick the cat stays with her. Protection like.

Im not sure this is philosophy and metaphysics in any way, but, its interesting.

Im not so sure the dog would be hailed as a hero for removing the infected appendage had the man had gonorrhea, however.

Just sayin'. Id rather have a surgeon evaluate the need to amputate infected portions of my body than my pets.

I actually suspect that is where the old wives tale of cats sucking the breath out of babies or suffocating them while they sleep came from.

I bet what really happens is the family cat senses that there is a problem with the baby, (like crib death) and goes into the crib to be with it, and then when people see the cat in there with the dead baby, they blame the cat.

"Sleeps with shoes on,"


What about his fingers? Some of those knitted metal gloves, maybe.

If toes aren't available......

See where you brought us to?

People are hailing this dog as a hero, fair enough, every dog has his day and all that, but all I see is a greedy little pooch mistaking his owners manky toe as a fine bit of Wensleydale, perhaps more likely a piece of Stilton.

Also, they say that the dog saved the owners life but I read that the mans toe had been swollen for ages and he had done nothing about it. It even began to smell funny but he was reluctant to get it seen by a doctor. I could have told him something was wrong (and thus saved his life) WITHOUT having to eat his cheesy toe.

I suppose all I'm saying is: there is a fine line between a dog saving his owners life and a dog chewing his owners toe off

yeah, the philosophy part was about the way that the guy looked at the whole thing. as if it were meant to be. that's just silly.
like the poster on the site says about the bear being hungry and it ate somebody , but , hey, it's all for the best...
