Almost a terrible day

Okay, so can I just smash the computer today. First I try to upload to Snap Fish...nada...won't work, go to help, it doesn't even have the options that help tell me to click on. Okay, forget it. Next off to blog...got some cute new pics of the puppies...page not available 4 times...finally get to browse and then after picking 5 photos..slam..not available. Okay, can I just say forget it tonight.

Worst part of day today..I call my friend to ask how puppies are doing...she is mildy hysterical and telling me "something wrong with Isabella, taking her to vet, I'll call you later".....okay, so I am thinking what is wrong. Worst case will she die. Our Pug Zoey lost her mom at 2 weeks old to a head injury. These puppies are only 3 days old, how will they survive. I fretted and fretted and then got the call...she's okay. Apparently she got bit by a spider or something. Her eye swelled up, tongue turned purple and she was in a bad way. 2 of our other friends were there, one went on the vet run..holding the lethargic mama. Forgot to mention that my friend gave her Benedryl, which saved her life! She is doing fine tonight. Thank goodness. Has anyone else out there had bad reaction to bugs with their Pug? I am going out to buy Benedryl tomarrow for sure.

Happy note...I agree with All up in the Koolaide....one of us should def. win the HGTV dream home! We could have a Pug Blog reunion. There is that bunk room. Or perhaps make it into a Bed and Breakfast for Pug Lovers...you know how hard it is to find a place that takes pets...even when you tell them that they are your children!

Good night.

Hey Debbie-
I've wondered...how much Benedryl do you give a pug? I've been slowly putting together a Pug-Aid Kit, but never put Benedryl in (even though I know pugs should have it available, because of all their allergies) because I didn't know what the correct dosage is? Can you ask your friend? Or do you know?
Thanks,
Emily

I will check with my friend. I believe she gave her like a teaspoon and a half...basically just poured it down her throat. It would be interesting to make a list of items for a Pug first aid kit. Did you find the info on-line or in a book? We should probably all have these items on hand!

That's a great idea for the HGTV house!!! We had a scare with Tiny one year. She was bit by a yellow jacket and I took her to the vet right away and he gave her something and she was fine but her eye area swelled up!! I'm glad that mama is okay. Those babies are so cute. I could never have babies over here because I don't think I could part with them....of course it gets real messy and I'm sure the mama pug wants them to go when they are several weeks old.

Ah! A bed and breakfast for Pug Lovers! That's perfect! I figured the only way we could afford it would be to use it as a Bed and Breakfast!
