Wire Hazard and Swollen Faces

Life is never dull for long. Yesterday I got back from taking Mom home. I let the dogs out of their basement room. One look at Daisy and I knew something wasn’t quite right. Her face and nose were all swollen up on one side. This had happened to Bart the day before too and I had given him some Benadryl thinking it was an allergic reaction to either a bug bite or possibly poison ivy. His went away. Daisy’s didn’t, so this afternoon she is going to the vet. I think it’s infected; she won’t let me touch it to take a really close look but I can’t see anything.

Also yesterday after I got home from taking Bart to the vet (he has a urinary tract infection) there was a message from Rick saying that the Suburban was not running right and OnStar was trying to direct him to a Chevy dealer. Great. What now? We’ve never had a bit of trouble from the Sub. Turns out that the squirrels where he parks at work have been busy chewing through the wiring harness! So, I had to go and pick him up. They should have the new wiring harness in by this afternoon.

All this on top of not feeling very well; swollen glands in my throat, sneezing, etc. All the symptoms of a head cold or bug. So, I’m going to try and relax now until Daisy’s vet appointment. I have some posts to catch up on but I can’t concentrate on writing them right now, so stay tuned for Manhattan Momma, A Shore Thing, and Pick Me!

Update: Daisy got a big shot of Benadryl and something else for the reaction. The vet found a spot on the inside of her mouth that looked like it could have been a bite or sting. She was running a little fever as well, poor Do. I hope this makes her more comfortable.


Welcome, I'm Lynne. You know me better as a 'new' Jersey Girl. But now I've moved back to my 'home' state and I am living in NoCo (Northern Colorado).This blog will be about my thoughts, good food, and of course, dogs.
