    It can be, but that is going to be one bitter dog.

    My dog was 2 when his tail got in between 2 couch cushons and I sat on it and broke it:eek1: :doah: And 6 inches got chopped:( ......It took about 10 weeks to fully recover. He is all good now.

    My dog clears tables with his tail.. and cracks the bottoms of my feet if I'm sitting in the La - Z - boy recliner.. also gotten cracked in the weblos on occiasion. I've told my wife.. " the next big dog we get, he gets fixed, and his tail gets docked, all at once.

    Yeah, this beast has a flexible baseball bat above her butt, she sweeps the cups on the coffee table over, knocks things off the fridge, makes the door sound like someone's knocking, makes her crate rattle when she gets happy... She's gotten better about hitting people with it, but when she nails you, you know something hit you...

    I'd heard there was an artery or something in it after a certain age. Myth I guess? It sure would be nice to not have to grab my lemonade every time she walks in the room...

    Do you know anyone who raises sheep or goats? There is a tool made to place a surgical bubber band on the tail or testicles, makes it hurt for about five minutes until it's numb, then "dies" and falls off in about 3-4 weeks.

    Mine's tall enough that he once backed up to the coffee table and crapped on it standing up.

    It was the first, last, and only time he ever did that again.

    I still have some of those from my farmer days. I also have a docking iron, but the smell is horrible.
