I came home while ago..hadn't been gone 15 minutes, My blueheeler "Cowboy" (yes I have one named that too) met me at the truck whinin and carryin on..he never does that. So I got him up to the porch light where I could see and he was limpin. left front paw..somethin wrong...upon further examination....he has two...TWO seperate snake bites on that one paw. I immediately gave him benedryl and antibiotics hoping that will help with the swellin...but it's blowin up fast.

I dont EVER go anywhere and be seen in public in my shorts and boots...well I came back home..piddled around the house doin stuff.....did some mowin....in and outta the house all day....hubby came home from work and we had to go into town to pick daughter up from volley ball practice......I guess since I'd wore that all day it started feelin normal. Cuz it never crossed my mind. picked up the kid..stopped in at the lil mom n pop store to get a dr pepper....I walked all the way to the back of the store....gettin my fountain dr pepper...and the lady that owns the store peeps around the corner n says...."my aren't we lookin especially nice today"...
Oh you bet he gotta chewin when we got out to the truck..lettin me go all the way to town lookin like that !!!!!

I've been so busy that I haven't had time to check the board much lately (just the ones I've already posted on). Sorry to hear about Cowboy lilly. I hope I didn't jinx you with talking about our dog getting bit :(

I have a soft place in my heart for blue heelers ('specially others named Cowboy) and your pictures almost broke my heart. Poor guy. I'm glad to hear he's doing better. I read that only 5% of dogs will die from a rattlesnake bite, and I doubt a heeler with prompt care would ever die. They are just too tough.

Here's to no more snake bites this year!
