Dixie is fine, naturally

Dixie is fine, we went to the vet and she thought it was just an infection. She then scared me to death because she seemed concerned that when she took a sample it wasn't pussy. She assured me that there can be non-pus infections, evidenced by the liquid being part blood and part clearish-liquid. I of course assume this means mast cells again. Well luckily, she came back eventually to say NO MAST CELLS!!! Yippeeee! It only took going at the Bugg three times with a needle, she definitely didn't like that. Our vet described this type of infection to me, essentially it's a slower-forming inflammatory infection as opposed to a crazy fast infection of pus. I'm sure it was a bug bite again that just slowly got infected and inflamed. She is on two meds for a while! The boyfriend left today for Florida though, so we spent last night hanging out and I didn't update anyone. I'll have more information tonight, as well as probably news about the impending multi-hostage situation this time. I wouldn't put it past Sophie.

Oh and send out your healing vibes that the medicines work and Bugg's bump goes down!

I am so happy that Dixie is on the road to recovery! Mom says she has never known a dog to have more random ailments than me, so we understand! :)

Oh no.. run bugg, run!!!!! Don't let Sophie holds you hostage. Oh, and happy that you's not sick, just allergic to bugs. Snort! - the bugg is allergic to bugs.

Heya new friends!

I'm enjoying checking out your blog and can't wait to hear more about you! Glad you're fine Dixie, but that vet trip sounded like a nightmare!

Licks, kisses, and love,

The pug posse sends lots of pug healing vibes your way Dixie! The pictures your mommy took of your paw looked like it is a very uncomfortable bump! We think you just need to milk all the sympathy you can get from your humans. The big sad eyes usually work for us!
Pug Hugs!
