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.

Accidental head butt, yeah right. That dog knew exactly what he was doing. Her own dog can't stand her.

she needs to whip up some cream for those liver spots on her hands.

i think our hands and necks age faster than other parts of our bodies.

by the way a really good professional facial will keep your pores really small like hers. i cut some things from my budget just so i can get them.

Looks like a bite. I see three marks in an open canine mouth pattern. Head butted with teeth... bulldogs are bred to go for the nose, she's lucky it let go. I doubt she will sue herself in any case.
