Martha Stewart

Hospitalized

After Dog Headbutt

1/13/2011 7:44 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Martha Stewart needed 9 stitches to close up a bloody gash on her upper lip this week after her dog accidentally headbutted the domestic goddess in the face.

Martha was getting ready to leave her NY home Tuesday when she leaned over to "whisper goodbye" to her dozing french bulldog, Francesca. But Martha says she must have "startled" the dog, because Franny shot upwards and hit Martha in the face ... busting her lip open.

Martha says she "felt a bit of whiplash as blood gushed forth from [her] split lip."

Unable to stop the bleeding herself, Martha first called police to ask for a ride ... before remembering that she had a driver on standby.

Martha eventually made it to the emergency room -- where she was promptly sewn back up.

OMG this same thing happened to me! All except for the stitches, luckily mine healed up OK.

I was picking up my dog from dogwalker's house and an overly excitable beautiful black lab came over to say hello. I leaned down just as he jumped up, and BAM. Ouch.

Martha has remarkably smooth skin for a woman her age. Hell, for a woman any age. What's her secret?

Obviously MS knew these were being taken. Is she planning a lawsuit against her own dog?

WHY did she call the police? Didn't she ever hear of 911? I THOUGHT she was good with figures?

Hey at least it didn't happen while she was in the slammer, not very safe getting sewed up with a rusty shiv. Maybe it knocked some sense into her...
