AceShowbiz - "Duck Dynasty" star Kay Robertson has learnt first-hand that one should not wake a sleeping dog. The reality TV star has had her lip ripped and a part of it gone after she was attacked by the family's dog Bobo.
Taking to his "Unashamed" podcast with his son Jase Robertson, Kay's husband Phil Robertson detailed what went down on the night of the incident, which happened on Tuesday, June 22. The entrepreneur said he was awoken in the middle of the night by a bleeding Kay, who had a rag on her mouth as she told him that she needed to get to a hospital immediately.
"I said, 'Move that rag a minute,' " he recalled. "She takes the rag off her face. And I'm looking at her top lip, was split in two, about a quarter of an inch." Further describing the injury, the Robertson patriarch added, "Her bottom lip, over on the right side, there was just a chuck gone. Bleeding profusely is an understatement."
Phil rushed his wife to the hospital where she got stitches to stop the bleeding. She is currently recovering at home and will be re-masking up for the foreseeable future due to the injury.
Sharing some advice from the situation, the 75-year-old revealed what he told his wife after the dog attack, "I said the old saying, 'Miss Kay, let a sleeping dog lie. You need to remember that.' "
As for the future of the dog, which has developed cataracts in his eyes due to past snake bites, the family hinted that Bobo will likely be sticking around for a while as Kay believed the dog has apologized. "First thing she told Dad when she came in - she said, 'I just want you to know that Bobo met me at the truck and he apologized,' " Kay and Phil's son Alan Robertson recalled what his mother said.
