8/7/13 I Get A Shot In The Butt

I haven’t wanted to complain, because I don’t have a lot of patience with whiners, myself.  But my allergies have gotten SO BAD that last night, Mom had to crate me so I wouldn’t hurt myself or anyone else – I was going bananas from the itch, tearing around the house with my hair standing on end…THIS IS NOT MY NORMAL BEHAVIOR.

Fortunately, Mom knew something was wrong (she learned from last time) and called Dr. W. right away.  He got me in to see him today, and he refilled my medication and gave me a shot in the butt.

Now, the shot in the butt wasn’t really so bad.  I was distracted by eating a (hypoallergenic) treat.  So I didn’t see the needle coming.  The next thing I knew, I was in mid-chew with a stinging pain in my rear end.  I looked around, but the shot was done already.  I didn’t bark or growl or whine.  Like I said, not a lot of patience with whiners.

Dr. W.’s shot was a fast-acting steroid, which would make me feel much more comfortable, really quickly.  And I do feel better.  Thank you so much, Doctor. 

Woof!  Love, Maggie
