So, what do you guys think about the excuse given by prominent lawyer, Tan Sri Muhammad Shafee Abdullah that he fractured his left wrist after his pet dog jumped on him?

Well, this is what the lead counsel for Datuk Seri Najib Abdul Razak told the three-man panel at the Court of Appeal recently and that because of this, he could not continue with his submission for the day.

As a kid, I am sure many of us have blamed our pets for our failure to submit our homework, while our dog has frequently been blamed when we are due to pay a debt.

"My dog ate the ATM card," is a pretty common excuse, but a dog inflicting a wrist injury ... well, that's a new one.

Since his excuse, netizens have had a field day on social media, with many wanting to know what kind of dog it was.

Some guessed it must have been a Tibetan Mastiff, while others said it was a Doberman or German Shepard to be able to inflict that kind of pain.

Even other lawyers joined in, saying they were thankful they did not own a dog so their wrist was not at risk.

Anyway, what has a wrist got to do with submissions in court?

All things aside, I must thank Shafee for giving us a good laugh and hopefully his cat does not do something the next time!
