So, uhm, things didn't work out as planned yesterday. I did get quite a number of cuddles, but not enough to head off another allergic reaction to something.
Mom and Dad noticed my face going red at about 10:00 yesterday morning and a call was placed to the V-E-T. No, I didn't have to go in. Mom just checked to see if I could take Benadryl with my antibiotic and apparently I could. Darn it. I hate taking pills.
So, for those that don't recognize allergy face in a shar pei, this is from my first major allergy attack. When I originally posted this picture, not everyone could see the redness so Mom used Paint Shop to show you this:
Anywhere you see red on my face/nose, that's where I was itchy. Yeah, pretty nasty eh? Yeah, same thing happened yesterday. So down goes the Benadryl and Mommy sprays me with the same stuff she sprayed me with last time. (Baking Soda and Water.) I hate getting sprayed. Needless to say with Mommy doing all these thigns to me, she did NOT get a lot of cuddles.
Then last night before going to bed, Daddy rinsed me with water. That takes place in a BATH for those of you not in the know. So I decided to barf on Mommy's pillow. She was too quick for me and I ended up barfing in the barf bucket. Sigh. I hope I feel better today.
So it looks like it could be something in my cookies. Sigh. So I won't be getting any for a while. Whimper. I'll keep you all updated on how I'm doing ok?
Sniff ya later.
