Dumb Dog

After almost dying a couple of months ago, you would think Wrigley would have learned not to stick his nose into places it doesn't belong. He came in today with an extremely itchy snout. At least he didn't go into shock this time, but it appears he was stung by something. We immediately gave him a dose of Benadryl (eat your heart out, GracieGirl!!) and put some hydro cortisone cream on it. It is still itchy but seems to be lessening.

I think we have a next of some type of stinging insect in the back yard, in the netting that was used when the front yard was seeded. Hannah also got stung a few months ago, when she stepped on the pile of netting. The dog loves to stick his nose into the netting, looking for whatever it is that dogs look for.

Wrigley got Bee Drill?????

I didn't hear the shock story. You never get normal animals, do you?

You know, I can instantly put myself in near-pants-wetting hysterics when I think of you at the drive-in window at the bank, petting your dead cat!!!

I can't believe you don't have Intenet!! Isn't that illegal??? Please hurry back!

Thanks for the birthday wishes. I can always count on you and my former attorney to remember! LOL

When my dog was a puppy he disturbed a bee hive and badly stung and had bees all matted into his fur. Yikes! Had to take him to the emergency dog where they treated him for stings and shock. We were picking squished up bees off him for days.
