UPDATE: I'm baaaaaaack. Just wanted to let everbuddy know dat mum called her furiend ( da vets wife) way earlies dis mornin and he was already at da clinic doing surgery. Well you know what dat means? We DIDN"T haves to wait till they opened. Nope, mum was told to brings me on in and come throughs da back door. Not Cool to haves a VET waiting on you.
So anyways, I'm okie dokie,he said it was more than likely a bite and prolly from a spider...just a wy to keeps mum on her toes...hehehe. I gots me a shot of antihistamine and sumptin else to makes me feel aaaaaall betters. Oh and da VET chacked my eyeball too and said it was all goods. So da moral of da story: Don't play bitey face withs a spider and don't go to furiends blogs furst thing in da mornin' who haves just been to da VET (Mangomom you can pass da vodka overs to my mum nows).

And sorry bouts my mum freaking out...hers has a tendency to do dat especially cuz crap always seems to happen to me:) I apologize fur hers being a moron. I do appreciate everbuddies suggestions and well wishes and I promise it was not a way to get a sympathetic roasting...hehehehe! But you all mean so very much to me and I hads to say thank you.

I go rest nows....Bye!

Peace Out,

Puddles eye is completly swollen...almost shut. Does anyone have any idea? I'm waiting for the vet to open so I can take her.....This is just freaky, she just woke up this way but it is getting worse. Sorry, I'm a little frazzled right now.

Looks like an insect bite? ><;

Tucker said...

You should ask Gunther's Mom - looks similar to the bee sting he had last week when he tried to eat a bee for attention.

Try a warm teabag while you wait for the vet to open. Or call the emergency vet to get the correct dosage of benadril.

woof - Tucker

Mango said...

Oh dear, I agree that maybe a bad bug bited you. Please keep us posted. Poor Miss Puddles.


Raising Addie said...

We agree that something may have bitten her. The same thing happened to our first doxie.

She had a bad reaction to a red ant bite and her entire face swelled up.

Please let us know what the vet says.

Lots of Luv & Kisses
Addie, Lucie and Hailey

JD and Max said...

Oooh, poor Miss Puddles, that looks so painful. We agree with the others that it looks like a nasty insect bite - JD was bitten last year on his lip and it swelled up like that and was very painful for him. A trip to the vet and some antibiotics sorted him out - although he swears it was the extra treats of cheese and cuddles that did the healing! As Tucker said try bathing it with a warm compress to ease the swelling whilst you're waiting for the vet to open. We wish you well Miss Puddles and will be looking out for your update on it. Soothing schnauzer snuggles - JD and Max.

Lola said...

Oh, poor Puddles. I have to agree with everyone else. It looks like a very allergic reaction to an insect bite. She's so small that I have no idea how much antihistamine she could take a time but if you do know I'd try that until she can get into the vet.

Zona said...

Oh my dogness! I agree with the previous comments. Puddles looks just like me when I was stung by a bee as a puppy! Ouchies! Mom gave me benadryl until the vet was available (since these things always happen off hours) and then they gave me a shot of something in my tush. It took a little while but I was back to normal size pretty soon. Poor Puddles Duddles. I hope she's not too uncomfortable. It's almost 8:30 now so maybe you have some news... keep us posted!


Madi and Mom said...

Oh my gosh sweet Puddles looks like you got a bite of some kind. Bless your heart. It looks painful too,
Please keep us posted.
Luv and hugs

Minna Krebs said...


Oh my goodness. I don't have any suggestions other than those already mentioned. Is she feeling bad...other than the eye?

I hope the Vet opens soon!!!

Please let's us know. We will be worrying


Sam and Pippen said...


OMD! We think it's a bug bite too.

Get well soon!

Sam and Pippen

PeeS. this is going too far in the sympathy department just to get nice comments on Roast day!

Frankie Furter said...

OMD OMD that looks TERRIBLE. Please PLEASE let us know what caused this when you get back from the VET. I'll cross my paws in the meantime.

Maggie Mae said...


If does look like you gots bit by a bug. :( Mom agrees with all the good advice from every body.
I hopes you is feeling betters soon.

Woofs and Healing Licks,
Maggie Mae

hero said...

Whatever it is, I hope it will clear up soon... keeping my paws cross for you, Puddles.

Licks, hero

Ruby and Penny said...

Poor Puddles. That looks painful.

It could be a bug bite, but she might have gotten an irritant stuck in it or scratched the eye. Could also be in infection.
Try holding a warm wet facecloth to her eye. Let us know what the vet says.
Love from your relatives.
Ruby & Penny

Mr. Pip said...

Oh Puddles, you have had a rough week - a run in with a spider and all this roasting stuff!

Keep your chin up and have a beer on me!

Your pal, Pip

Sam said...

I was going to suggest a spider bite too! One of our Danes years ago ended up with an eye like that, only he had hit his head pretty hard on the mirror of my truck!


mayziegal said...

PUDDLES! I go away for TWO DAYS and this is what happens???? I do not think this is a good way at ALL to gets my attention. Nope nope. I'm very much glad it was just a spider bite (WHY were you playing bitey face with a spider in the first place? That's what Albert's for!). Well, I hopes you get better lickety split. Although between that and your groundhog scar, you're look a bits like a pirate. Arrrr!

Wiggles & Wags,

♥I am Holly♥ said...

Puddles, you poor little doggie. That looks like it would hurt. We'll glad you got to see the vet asap. Your mom isn't alone in freaking out. My mom is always rushing one of us to the vet in a panic if she thinks something is wrong. Last year I got stung a couple times from chasing after bees and off she went racing me to the vet. He told her to keep benadryl on hand and it sure would save her money. She's never happy though unless she sees the vet. We both hope your swelling goes down soon and please leave the stay away from those creepy spiders! Lots of love, Debbie and Holly

Mollie said...

I can't believe I didn't get a crazed phone call early this morning! I feel so left out! Thankfully, I am not going to see you at my place of work this afternoon (at least you had better not have to come there)! I must say, though, that this is definitely NOT Puddles's best look!

Sam and Pippen said...

We are so glad that it's 'only' a spider bite!

Our mom would like to know if it's typical that in a multi pet home why everything seems to happen to only one? For us, it's always Sam that has to go to the vet. It's very weird.

Sam and Pippen

JD and Max said...

Hi Puddles, thanks for the update, we're glad you've got it sorted out now! We have such a funny image in our minds of you playing bitey face with a spider - he he he! Must have been a hoooge spider to give you an eye like that!! Take care - and um, milk it for extra treatage!! Schnauzer snuggles - JD and Max.

Frankie Furter said...

Yea RIGHT... so you scammed your mom and the VET... I know what the problem is... It is EYE STRAIN from TRYING to see what the girrrls and I posted on OUR wedding blog... I tried to tell you that the Not for ......'s Eyes thingy worked and you just would NOT listen. Now SEE (Pun intended) what you caused to happen to your eye. Not to mention scaring the wits out of your mom.
It IS a shame that you can't see that post... beclaws you would be MOST interested in it. I'm just sayin'.

Anonymous said...

I'm glad I slept in... this would have been too much for me to deal with so early in the day. Hope you're resting comfortably now.

Your mum is not a moron, but if she's drinking vodka before 10 AM because her dog has an ouchie, you might want to gently suggest a 12 step program. BOL

Those Elgin Pugs said...

Oh's my goodnessessessessess's Puddles!!

'dat looks awful! We are so sorry to hear about this and we are happy to have found out about it after we read the good news update first!!

Tell charlotte's web not to bite yous face anymores!!

We's blow yous some kisses!!

Izzy, Josie and Anakin Man

Zona said...

There's something wrong with vodka at 10am?? BOL!

I'm glad you're resting up. I hope your eye area shrinks down to the normal size today so your mum can return to worrying about your hijinx and not your ouchie!


Ina in Alaska said...

Don't mess with those miserable spiders!!!

Mango said...

Miss Puddles! So glad you are going to survive. I hope you don't have to soak your head in epsom salts.


Khyra And Sometimes Her Mom said...

Now The Beastie will want to put smoothies on your eye AND Mango's - well, Mango's things -

Glad we slept in a bit too -

Akhtually, I've been outside enjoying the RAIN!

Be sure woo get plenty of extra Puddles time!


houndstooth said...

Oh goodness! Poodles, I feel really bad for you and your poor mom. I'm glad it was just a spider bite and that you'll be okay.


P.S. Was that a good cover so that your mom won't know that you were out getting your alkie haul last night and got in a bar fight with a ground hog?

Minna Krebs said...


We are all so releeved to hears you will be making a complete recovery

We were so corncerned bout you that my moms could just barely enjoy her mani-pedi wif massage this morning. She suffered thru it though, we knew you woulds want it that way!

Healing hugs

♥♥♥ The OP Pack ♥♥♥ said...

Puddles, what did you do? We leave you for a couple of days and you go and get hurt! Were you looking for that hedgehog again? Hope the meds make you all bettr - we just voted for you to be the minister at the big wedding - can't have you being sick.

Bocci said...

So glad everything's starting to heal-and you were able to get in through your vet's 'back door" !
Vodka time! Ha!

Your buddy,

Lorenza said...

Hi, Puddles!
Last night I left you under your covers and today I found you with an ouchie!
Mean spiders! I know how much they can hurt you!
I hope you will be like new in no time!

Madi and Mom said...

Hi Puddles oh Thank Dogs and Cats all is well. Moms are like that you know they get all jittery and worried at the drop of a pin. We are so glad you are on the way to recovering. I must tell you my Mom LOL when she read what you said about getting bitey face with a spider. That was 100% hilarious.

Not to worry we did not change one word of our roast it will remain as is. Oh and we do hope you like it.
Hugs to you all,
Madi and Mom

scotsmad said...

Ouchies, looks painful. We're not allowed to play with the spiders because we have a few poisonous types around. Now grasshoppers and cockroaches are another matter.

We hope the eye clears up soon.

XXXOOO Daisy, Kendra & Bella

A MilShelb Mom said...

That's what Shelby's eye look like when she has an allergic reaction (which happens sometimes). Glad it was just a bite. Glad you're ok!!

The Teacher's Pets said...

Lola said...

I'm so glad that it's going to be fine, Puddles. Now just try to stay away from spiders and other dangerous creatures for a little while, OK?

lotsa licks, Lola

Jan's Funny Farm said...

Yikes, what a scare. Good thing you're okay, Puddles.

Maybe Jan wasn't such a worrier when she shut the computer down the other night after a spider she was trying to kill got knocked onto the keyboard and disappeared between the keys.

Barbara said...

Puddles, what happened? Are you better now? This is why my mom keeps benadryl around, if you get bit by da bugs, it helps!

Let us know how you are!

Trixie and Minnie

Your Friends


My poor Puddles, we are so sorry you gots a spider bite. My brother Jacks used to get swollen all th time becuse he always poked his snooter where it didn't belong.

Mommy thinks that you and Taz would make a great couple. What do you think? He is kina cute you know. He owes me ya no!


Ruby and Penny said...

Hi Preacher Puddles.
Hope you are feeling great today, after all the excitement yesterday. That spider bite looks so painful.
Love from your relatives
Ruby & Penny

Junior and Orion said...

Oh Puddles, that looks very sore. We hope your medicines are making it all better and making you feel real good.

Anonymous said...

Hey, I played bitey face with a bee once and ... what happened to your eye happened with my entire head. It looked like a big ballon. Unlike your caring mommy though, I almost died because mine was shaking too much from laughing and she couldn't even dial the emergency hospital number. Feel better and kisses and licks on the boo boo.

doyle and mollie said...
