Could I be devolving?

I admit I go overboard with dogs, but this is too much even for me.

I bit Mr. B. On his hand.

Not on purpose, but hard. Not hard enough to break his skin, but plenty hard to cause pain.

I don't know how it happened; I was asleep.

I was having a nightmare and dream-shouting, "No, no, no." Mr. B reached over in a daze to gently nudge me awake and I chomped down on his hand. He tried to move it, but I clenched harder, so he left his hand between my canines till the nightterror passed and my jaws gave way.

At least that's what he tells me. Assuming he was not hallucinating himself, I'd sure like to have a word with whomever selects my dreams. 

If I'm going to be a dog, I'd really prefer to be an Alaskan Husky, not a pitbull.

Is that so much to ask?

(Please note: I have nothing against pitbulls. In fact, I really like them. I even rescued one that followed me home one day, and I paid $75  for the option to make sure she would be adopted. I would just rather run like crazy in the snow than bite things.)

Are you taking Ambien...or another sleeping aid? I've heard about people doing crazy things in their medically induced sleep. My friend wakes up and finds opened food packages in her kitchen. Maybe you thought Mr. B was taking your stash of munchies. That's good reason to maim.

Regarding who chooses your dream, see this perspective.

Sleep well. No biting.

Wonderful image. I like the idea of a dog being aware of the stigma of being a pitbull.

It occurs to me that you only have his word to take. If my hubbie doesn't stop snoring like a freight train, I may resort to biting.

Distracted--as in PPEs? Tee-hee
Pyzahb-- I've had a little encounter w/Ambien before, but I found that I kept reading the same page over and over again each night and could never finish a book. I'll have no more of that! Loved the post. Thanks for sharing.
Erin--it's tough being a pitbull...just ask me.
Rudee--may I recommend a sleep study and CPAP first?
