The hand of dog?

Argentina coach Diego Mardona was rushed to hospital after being attacked by his favourite pet dog. The 49-year-old was trying to kiss Bela, a shar pei like the one pictured above, because she was sick. But Bela was not impressed the show of affection and clamped her teeth onto Diego’s lips.

He was immediately taken to hospital, where he received emergency treatment for bites and was given an anti-tetanus injection before having surgery on his punctured upper lip.
