Vail-based skiing champ Lindsey Vonn loves to share her life on social media.

Note the way she documented her relationship with golf superstar Tiger Woods beginning in 2013, not to mention her announcement regarding the couple's inevitable breakup earlier this year.

...and here's a screen capture offering a closer look at her hand, which required stitches to her thumb to mend.

As noted in her initial post, Vonn wasn't about to let a little torn flesh keep her off the slopes.

Here's an Instagram pic proving the point:

Our guess: If Vonn had to choose between another dog bite and more knee injuries of the sort that kept her out of the 2014 Olympics, she'd happily let her canines chow down on her again.
