      My lab Lilly caused me many days of screaming T. She was just trying to protect me.

      I'm lucky that way...my boston terrior doesn't bark but have been around my brothers dogs barking. Ouch!

    4. Well aware of that. My T was caused when my Flat coated retriever barked my by accident straight into my left ear :bag:. Totally my fault as i had my head besides his.

      My Rhodesian ridgeback George luckily is a quiet dog at home, different story when out on walks though! :eek: But when he does bark outside I'm usually wearing plugs.

      I just wonder if we are all over protecting our ears. Surely a dog barking must be 'normal' sound or do we all have to be so disabled in life now that we cant hear our own pets. What about if you have a baby or young child? Can @Dr. Charlie please comment on this and also @Dr. Nagler
      What if someone shouts at you?
      so confused as to how it is possible to go on if one cannot live a vaguely normal life anymore......so depressing and frightening.
