Pet lover and talk-radio host Jillian Barberie was bitten on the lip by a cocker spaniel over the weekend, but like any true dog person, she ain’t blaming the animal for 10 stitches’ worth of damage.

“My tender, beautiful, luscious, ripped open lip. Awwwww Xo,” she added later.

“You know me and dogs…… I think I’m the dog whisperer,” she said in another tweet.

Barberie said she was holding the dog, who “Lost his best friend last week,” when he bit her.

By Monday, Barberie’s wound was looking better – well enough that the damage to her lip didn’t keep her off talk radio.
