The Sunday Post and Stacking the Shelves–Another Month Over Edition


The Sunday Post is hosted by Kimba of The Caffeinated Book Reviewer.  This is a weekly meme where we can share news of the week and highlight new books received.

ZOMG! I can’t believe that summer is over.  While I’m happy to have an extra day off this weekend, I am starting to dread the idea of winter.  Ugh! I just started enjoying walkies with the puppers, and the thought of slipping and sliding around on the snow and ice is just not appealing to me.

Speaking of the puppies, when we got back from our walkie on Thursday, Dean noticed that Bumble’s eyes looked funny.  When I looked, I. FREAKED. OUT!  His little face was getting more swollen by the second, and naturally our regular vet had just closed, and I didn’t have any Benadryl in the house.  I ALWAYS have Benadryl in the house.  I raced him over to the snazzy new animal ER that just opened near us, and after a shot of steroids and Benadryl, his face started to get back to normal.  We had a rough night because of the steroid shot (thanks for mentioning that it would make him have to pee every 10 minutes, NOT) but he was all back to himself by Saturday AM.  Or maybe prior, and it took until Saturday for me to get back into sorts.

The vet is pretty certain that he was bitten by a bug, and he had a reaction to that.  Now I have to make sure I have Benadryl in the house, because if he is bitten again, the reactions will keep getting worse.  Wonderful.  Poor guy!  Who would have thought a quick spin around the park would end up giving Bumble a pumpkin face and costing me 200 bucks to get it back to normal?  Not ME!  I am very, very glad that he’s okay! (It’s my wallet that is sobbing)
