Wordless Wednesday - Shyla in the desert and yesterday

Shyla's beauty glowed in the desert sunset light.


Yesterday, Shyla's face swelled up during an allergic reaction to something she encountered outside in the morning. Her face became a bit more dramatically swollen than this on the way to the vet.
We spent part of the day at the Emergency Vet, and Shyla is better after treatment. I am hoping that there are no repercussions in terms of seizures.

I really needed one *normal* day to get caught up. Of course, without hesitation, we let our day be dictated be Shyla's veterinary needs... so now I'm even further behind! I'm giving up on catching up soon!

  1. Poor Shyla! She (and you) can't catch a break! Hope she is feeling OK now!

  2. Hope you can figure out - and/or Shyla can avoid - whatever caused the reaction. One of my wolfhounds got stung on her face by a ground hornet, but if I hadn't seen it happen I never would have known what caused the swelling. The memory of that - plus the many forester stories I've listened to, wincing - is one of the many reasons I will always use a commercial spray ASAP after locating a ground hornet hole. The hair is standing up on my arms just writing this!
    Feel better, Shyla :) (And fingers crossed for no more seizures!)

  7. Scary... bee sting? nettle? the sap from a plant stem? Hope you find the cause. and naturally our dogs and cats can change any day's plans in a moment. Hang in there Shyla, you will be back outside very soon.

  12. The labs always come first in our book. The work can wait. Poor girl, she's really on a roller coaster.

  13. Oh no, poor Shyla, and poor you...that must have been so stressful. Why is it just when we're working on getting caught up, life throws something else at us? Anything to do with taking any of my pets to the vet automatically hijacks my day. Getting caught up can always wait. ♥
