Scrappy Dog Sunday!
My poor Jujube! Yesterday when she woke up, half of her muzzle was swollen. We tried to see what she had done. Did she get bit by a spider? Did a bee sting her? Did she have any puncture wounds? Nothing...we did however give her some drugs to reduce the swelling. She was fine otherwise. She continued to eat, drink, play, bark and basically be Jujube.
Then bedtime came, and on her pillow were blood spots. Guess what happen next? Yep, I freaked out. MY POOR LITTLE GIRL! JUJUBE! She had no clue what was going on, Pete began attacking random things in the bedroom and Lola just looked at me. OMP calmed me down and we looked around for anything that could have damaged my little girl. Still nothing.
This morning the swelling had gone down but it is still sensitive to the touch. She is milking it a little bit but she is doing much better. It is so scary when you little one is hurt and you can't figure out exactly what is wrong. We were planning on taking her to the vet if it's not any better and still may have to, but for right now, she is doing okay. I think she made need one more little treat, just to make her feel better.
PS-I should also mention that Lola refuses to leave Jujube's side. She is such a good mama!
