Martha Stewart recovering after pet dog attack

January 14, 2011 Martha Stewart

Martha Stewart is recovering from a serious gash to her upper lip after she was bit by one of her beloved dogs.

The television host and businesswoman was rushed to the emergency room Tuesday night when her French bulldog, Francesca, snapped at her, reports TMZ.

"I must have startled her, because she bolted upright with such force that she hit me in the face like a boxing glove hitting an opponent's face," Stewart explained on her blog Thursday. "I was entirely startled and my neck snapped back. I felt a bit of whiplash as blood gushed forth from my split lip."

TMZ reports that Stewart was about to leave her home in New York when she leaned over to "whisper goodbye" to Francesca. That's when Francesca went for Stewart's face.

Stewart, who launched in 2010 a pet care line that includes apparel, collars and leashes and grooming supplies, was driven to Northern Westchester Hospital, where she received nine stitches.

Pictures of a nervous but composed Stewart in a medical room was captured by her manager and posted online. In one photo, Stewart looks at the camera as she holds up an ice bag to her lip, and another shows a surgeon stitching up the open gash.

Reports say the domestic diva has since been back to work.
