June 17, 2019 - "Puppy Life Lesson 125: How to Look Cute After Giving Your Mommy a Scare into Taking You to the ER"
I bet you wouldn't know from this picture how I scared Mommy into taking me to the ER at 4:30AM this morning, huh? Yep, I started shaking, heavily panting, and breathing very fast around 2AM and wouldn't settle down at all. I also became super clingy, which is NOT like me at all. When my breathing wouldn't calm down after a couple of hours and half a Benadryl didn't seem to help anything, off to the ER we went. ER vet said I had a fever, but because I didn't seem to have any other major symptoms, it was probably a mere reaction caused by two routine vaccines I received yesterday. (I've never had any reactions or side effects from vaccines in the past, so Mommy was completely caught off-guard.) I was given an injection of fluids and sent home. Luckily, after resting most of the day, my breathing is back to normal, I'm up and about for the most part, and I'm not as warm, so hopefully that means my fever broke. Here's hoping my cuteness will lessen the sting Mommy got from the ER bill. 🤑 (Thank God for pet health insurance, though!) #cutepuppy #instagramdogs - 6 hours ago
