Tilda got into a ground hive of yellow jackets that was right in her potty area. She was stung by about a half dozen or more. Steve was out with her and she went wild thrashing around and he had to pluck them off of her. Luckily, we had an antihistamine and my friends here were quick to tell me to give it to her right away. We aren’t sure the ones on her neck actually got thru her fur but the one inside her lip surely did. The vet called us back and that one was starting to get red & swell a bit. She had us add a steroid and she was in better shape. She was tired from the meds but she’s fine. She IS a hound dog. They have to be tough. It’s one of their charms. Getting themselves into situations where toughness is required is also one of their charms. I just love her so much.
We took care of the ground hive. Well, I say we, but really Steve did. I was on deck to call 9-1-1 if necessary and to swoop in and take pictures.
