Yucky Ice, two...

Hi dawgs.

So, I went to work at Pet Crossing with dogmom. Opie stayed home.

I got to see Dr. Kate and Jesse and watch dogmom work. Opie stayed home.

I got to get a special CET chew treat from Dr. Kate for being a good boy. Opie stayed home.

Dr. Kate looked at my yucky eye and said that it was a severe allergic reaction to a bug bite or sting. Maybe a plant toxin (dogmom thought I got into the thistles by the trail on our walk.) But most likely a wasp sting or something along those lines. There were four little stinger sites on my eyelid and on my cheek.

Did I mention that Opie stayed home?

Anypaws, dogmom has to get me an Epi-Pen since the Benadryl that she gave me probably won't keep working very well if there is a next time. And dogs with reactions as severe as the one I had (good thing dogmom gave me some Benadryl AND put some ice on my eye!) can die before they get to the hospital.

So, all is well. My eye isn't swollen hardly at all any more. I'm not really sure what all the fuss was about... though I do like to go to Pet Crossing without Opie. (Did I mention that he stayed home?)

Opie decided that he missed me at home, I guess. 'Cuz he ripped up my fleecy blanket in my kennel and he ripped open the bag of my blown winter coat that dogmom had furminated. My hair was everywhere when we came in. (Some angel he is, huh?)

Wuf Ya!

We are glad that your eye is getting better. Opie must really have missed you.


Opie must have really missed you. We hope you are all better.

Tell Gemi's Mom we wish her Dog Speed and all the best of things. We hope Gemi comes out wagging her tail happily.

We posted a puppy picture of our cousin that adopted the family in the Key West. We just don't know which one and two-day old pups won't let you know.

I sure hope your eye is better! I need some help sending some wet licks to a hooman pup. Check out my blog and see if you can help. You might have even seen stuff about her on the news.
