My Near Death Experience by Me

Most of ya'll already knows bouts my near death experience on Friday.
But I is gonna tells ya'll again just in case ya'll not knows what happened to me and I thoughted everybuddy should knows how dangerous it is to be me...hehehe.
I promise to keeps it short and sweet.
Okays, da kerazy Lady drugged me withs Benadryl so I could has my yearly shots 
cuz I has a history of allergic reactions to them and then hers tooked me to da Vet.
Da Vet Man gaves me my shots.

Howevers, da vet man did not gives me da Lepto shot cuz he said dat be what most dogs
be allergic too so it wasn't worth takin' da chance.
Then I went home.

I get home and I was on da couch and mum hearded me flappin' my ears.
Then her started cussin' cuz her knews without even seein' me dat I was havin'
an allergic reaction.


And it was very obvious Brudder and Sissy was worried sick bouts me.
Can't you tells?
They was just beside theirselves.

So mum very calmly called da vet (they be on speed dial) to tells them I was havin' a reaction and they tolded hers to bring me back in. Mum whisked me away to da vet wheres they gaves me a shot of Benadryl and Dexmthemasone. Then I had to wait until they cleared me to go felted like eternity cuz I was bored outta my mind....there was nuttin to do theres.

Then at home I was doin' my thing, you knows...
...sittin' by da heat vent waiting to pounce on da vermin in theres...
...which I thinks could possibly be Bigfoot.
So then about four hours later mum went to gets My Girl from school with da intentions
of takin' me with her so I wouldn't be alone but her was runnin' late and furgtotted me.

When mum and da Girl gotted home, panick struck when they seen me cuz I had hives all overs my beautiful self AND da worstest part was my muzzle was swollen which is a REALLY bad sign.
Dis was some serious shit goin' on.
And lemme tells ya'll my hair looked atrocious from da hives. My hair was goin' all sorts of ways, some was goin' to da left and some to da right and some I has no idea what they was doin'...
...pathetic I tells you.
Again, mum called da vet and hers had to take me back in.
It was beginining to be kinda monotonous if you asks me.

When I gotted to da Vet they took me straight back and da vet man was purty shocked
when he seened me...but not surprised it happened to me...hehehe.
He gaves me anudder shot of da Benadryl and Dexamthasone.
And I was like "OH MY DOG, are you kiddin' me...dat makes 6 shots in one day!"
So we waited again until it was safe to go back home.

They sent me home withs Dexamethasone in pill form to be on da safe side.
And he tolded mum to calls hom at home to let him knows how I was through da day
( got his home number on speed dial too).
By da time I gotted home my eyes was REALLY heavy and I was seein' two of everything.
I won't even mention my doped up walk...hehehehe.
And even though I was two sheets to da wind withs all them drugs when I gotted home I still went Heat Vent Huntin'.
What can I say udder than  I can't be brought down.

Okays so dat wasn't exactly a short bad.
Only  I, Puddles could has two severe allergic reactions in one day even WITHS da proper precautions...
...and da lack of da Lepto shot!
But I am invincible!

Next year they will up da Benadryl dosage and split da shots up.

Thank you to everybuddy furs thinkin' bouts me and fur da well wishes.
I does very much appreciate it.

Dear PUDDS, that is an awful number of shots and drugs in your system for such a weenie dog! I got scared just reading about it. Of course, now that the worst is over and you're yourself again, I wish your mama had taken pictures of you looking like a hive. It would have been something to see. In a gruesome kind of way of course.

BTW, do you think your Dr Dog screwed up? Or are you just really really sensitive? Big hugs X

Lovable Lily said...

Puddles D. Rainwater, you gave us all a good scare! We just know your poor Mama was freakin' out over all of this. And Albert and Whitney, well they was worried too.

We did the happy dance once we knew you were going to be OK. That was really nice of Frankie & Ernie to notify us of your delicate medical conditions. Next year we say forget the shots! We don't want you to go through all of that trauma and drama again.

Love ya Puddles!

Lily Belle & Muffin

liparifam said...

Yep, been there, done that, and only you could make that situation sound funny, Puddles! Cracking up over those brudders; hope they've recovered from the scare :) If I (and not my dogs) ever have a near-death experience, I hope I handle it as well as you did, Puddles!

My Mind's Eye said...

OH MY SWEET little Doxie girl that must have been very scary and concerning for all of you ...well except for the Blobs. What in the world was wrong with them..Did your mum give them Benadryl too? Their Pack leader was in distress and there they napping. Tell them come Saturday afternoon Doxie demerits will be issued from the new mayoress.
Hugs and thank goodness you are on the mend.

houndstooth said...

Are you sure that vet isn't trying to kill you? Yegads! I think they ought to do one shot at a time to be sure you'll be okay. My brother, Hawk, used to get titres done because he was allergic to shots. I'm glad you survived!


♥Mona + Prissy + Angel Weenie♥ said...

Poor Puddles!1 How awful for you and your Mommy too. Glad your betters but sure would have liked to see your bad hair day picture.

Be good....oh forget that, impossible

Sniff ya later Weenie.

PS.....Mommym loves the picture of Whitney and Albert being worried about youy.

Ruby and Penny said...

Puddles. Our mom is not going to let us have vaccinations anymore. The same happens to us even the shots are spaced out.

Love Ruby & Penny

Ruby and Penny said...

Pees - we are so happy that you are ok.

Love Ruby & Penny

Brian's Home Blog said...

We love you Puddles and I am so glad you are okay now.

The Daily Pip said...

Are we going to hunt Bigfoot in that vent ...cause well, I think I might be allergic to Bigfoot and I might need some of your drugs to get me through ...

not that I am backing out of the whole hunting thing ...but Bigfoot sounds kind of scary ...

Your pal, Pip

Marg said...

I think next year, you need to skip those darn shots. That sounds like it was really scary for the Mom and you. Glad you are all better now. We love you too Puddles. Take care.

Millie and Walter said...

That sure was a scary day for all of you, especially Albert and Whitney ;-)

Glad to hear you are feeling better now, but try not to scare all of us like that again, okay?


Unknown said...

Invincible Puddles we are so glad you are OK. What a scare pal. During your near death experience did you see the light? Did you see fluffy white squiggles and vermin with angel wings? We got to know what it was like pal. Glad you are OK we were worried. Have a marvelous Monday.
Best wishes Molly

Frankie Furter and Ernie said...

HoundDogMom said...

What a very scary experience. We are glad you are doing better and we thinks something different should be done when it comes to them shots again. Sniffs, The HoundDogs

Bella Roxy & Macdui said...

SHE just heard all about your near death experience from Frankie's Personal Assistant. (We don't hear anything because we're still incarcerated at camp) We remember when Penny had that prob, so we can just picture you. Glad you're better and so impressed that nuthin' got in the way of your superb hunting skills.

XXXoOO Daisy, Bella & Roxy (who didn't actually write this as we haven't a clue what's happening in the world at the moment.)

Matilda the Boxer said...

Oh my, Puddles, you just like to keep our heart rates up, don't you?? I'm glad you're doing better, but take CARE!

Angels Amber and Max DaWeenie and Mom said...

Oh Puddles...we was so scared when we hearded dat you blowed a balloon! Brudder Max (DaOdderWeenie) gets dis reaction to da Rabies shot so him just stays at da vet's office ALL DAY LONG when it be Rabies time. Da vet won't even give him da udder shots cause last time it almost deaded him.

Glad you's feelin better now. Dat be cause fur celebration...bring on da beer and Cheesy Toes!

GOOSE said...

You are invincible! I am sooooo very much happy you are OK now. I trust all your furs are back in their proper place. You know what I think? I think that all those deaded critters relatives and friends that you deaded are conspiring to do you in. And the nose from the vent is them, just waiting and plotting. But it is obvious you can not be done in. Make sure you keep drinking plenty of liquids (wink wink) to keep your invincibleness up.

Sketching with Dogs said...

Oh my Dog, the humanity - or dogamity!
We are very glad you recovered from your near death experience Puddles and lived to chase vermin another day.
Mum's mum used to have a German Shepherd that was allergic to snow - no kidding, everytime he went out in it he used to come out in hives all over his body and his eyes would swell shut, poor thing.
Dip Bridge and Elliot x

Anonymous said...

Oh Puddles, really? As if you didn't get enough attention NOT having allergic reactions, now you have to go and have like 87 of them in one day?! You go, girl!

That must've been the worst day EVER to have had to gone to the V-E-T Crazy Man like 3 times in one day. Oh the horror of it all!

Glad you're better now, we read about your ordeal on Frankie and Ernie's blog the other day...we thought "Oh Puddles, NOT AGAIN!!!!" He he...but seriously, glad you're still around, because we're betting that Brudder and Sissy would make pretty boring bloggers...for reals.

Elyse and Riley

Inger said...

Oh, my dog, Puddles that's such a scary day. I'm so glad you are better now and that they will know what to do next year. Take it easy on those vermin and get you some rest, OK.

The Websters said...

SO was your mom too frantic to take photos or did you destroy them? I mean really, she surely had a camera phone for one at the vet's.

Also, I was expecting at least a self portrait of the hives.

Ok, so I'm just glad you're better. That must have been a really bad day going to the vet so many times.


Noodles said...

Whoa! That was scary Puddles! I am glad you are invincible!
Love Noodles

Patrice and Higgins said...

OMD Puddles! Thank goodness you is INVINCIBLE! So tell me about this big foot in your heater vent...I think I got one in mine as well...


Ruby said...

OMD GURL! You had me all kinds of worried! I was like "Ma GETS OFF THE PUTER! I HAVE TO SEE IF PUDDLES LEFT A MESSAGE!!!" Ands, she's like "CHILL!" Ands, I was like "PUDDLES COULD BE FLIPPIN' AND FLOPPIN' ALL OVER THE FLOORS, AND I WOULDN'T KNOW IT!!!" Ands she was like "CHILL!" And, I was like "PFFT!!!!! NOW WOMAN!!" And, she was like "Yeah, whatever.." Thens she gots her big fat arse out of the puter chair so I could check on the Puddles.....YEA! Puddles is INVINSIABLES!!
I knew it. It's all the beer and Cheetos...
I LOVES a happy endings!!

KB said...

OMD, I am so glad that you're okay Puddles. That was such a scary day!

If I were your mom, I'd seriously consider never vaccinating you again. I am absolutely serious. All sorts of studies are showing that the "yearly" vaccinations are not needed any more often than every 3 years. And, other studies are showing that, by the time you reach a certain age (I don't remember exactly but around 7 or 8), you have so much immunity built up that you really don't need any more vaccines. My vet stops vaccinating our dogs around age 8, even if they're healthy (except for rabies, which is legally required, but it's easy to get a waiver for health reasons). Of course, I live in a "new age" kinda place where people aren't legally dog "owners" but are dog "guardians", instead. So, this kind of thinking hasn't spread far and wide yet. But, your mom might look into it because I am scared about what might happen next.

I'm so glad that you're okay and hunting at the vent again already!

rottrover said...

Puddles! You never make it easy on the krezy lady do ya? We need a beer to unwind just from reading this!

Bart and Ruby

Murray's Mouth said...

Oh my! That is scary! So glad you're okay!!!


We is all so vary sorry yoo had dis bad B-A-D reaction. Mom says she is not takin no chances wif us anymoore. NO more vaccines. WE is all indoor old cats and we don't need no stinkin shots.
We is all glad yoo is better!

Backcountry Brodie said...

OMD, Puddles that is most horrific. I mean the hives, well the bad furdo, too. How comes, if'n you is so allergenic, do your V-E-T gib you those shots? Can't you do the titers instead? That way they steal bloods from you instead of putting bad fur day stuff IN you. But glad you is OK now. OK, so let's go camping. I think between the two of usn's with our problems we is all set now.

Unknown said...

Hi Puddles! Thank you for visiting my blog today! I now have you in my blogroll so I do NOT miss out on any of your adventures.

I know I don't knows you that well yet but I am glad you are okay after this ridiculous ordeal! Who would've thought you'd have allergic reaction AFTER taking Benadryl?!? For the love of dogs...thank goodness you have a wonderful Vet!

Your new pal,

Alien said...

I heard a rumor you were getting high on Benadryl and thought I would come over to join the party. Didn't realize you were having allergic reactions!

I'm glad you are safe, Minx. I have too many sick friends right now. I need you safe.

BTW. I stashed some beer in that vent. Big Foot better not have taken it, that thief!


Dachshund Nola said...

That is so scary! I'm so glad you're okay. Could you get your shots every 3 years instead of yearly? That was I get (or will be getting; I'm only 2)

Unknown said...

HOLY SHIT PUDDLES (mummys gonna shout at me now for using naughty words but it had to be said).
I'm so glad you're okay, i bets even though you did have hives you still looked beautiful!! I'm so glad you are okay!! It's a good job you're invincible, imagine what blogville would be like without you :O I don't even wanna think about its!!!
Love Milo :)

Sweet William The Scot said...

You sure be keeping the Benadryl company in business Puddle. Those hives love you Puddles. Good thing they did not give you a cocktai am sure glad you surived the shots.
Thanks for being a friend

We're relieved the word "near" is included. It's scary enough you had such a bad reaction - well, reaction, plural. We're glad you're doing better! That is downright scary!

Woo Southerners make evFURRYthing SOOOOO dramatikh ;-)

But in this khase, we believe woo -

So, how much did your woman age THIS time?


Dexter said...

Puddles, you are one tough bitch. And I mean that as a compliment. What was that, three trips to the vet in one day? And getting enough dope in you to knock out a horse. Sheesh. Glad you deflated and got yourself back in order. Hope your crazy lady's mentals didn't suffer any permanent damage. Sorry I missed all the action, but I am honestly glad you are OK.


Wyatt said...

Puddles, that is really scary. So sorry you had such a terrible ordeal. I think I would just stay away from vaccines!

Hope you are feeling better now,

Wyatt and Stanzie

Katie said...

Puddles, what a scare!! We are glad it all worked out. We're sure your Brudder and Sissy really were worried, they were just pretending to sleep so they could avoid all risks of being dragged to the vet to support you!

Val said...

Oh Puddles this is one scary story. I am glad you're okay.

jen said...

Oh my goodness gracious! I had no idea that you had a reaction, I missed that post! First, I'm glad you are ok. Second, holy shit! 2 different reactions in the same day, that is crazy! So glad you don't come to my vet because I would never give you a shot again! Third, where is the picture of your hot vet that wears jeans? darn it!

Reuben said...

Oh Puddles, you has so many braveries to endure all of those shots and STILL does your very important job of mole-huntings. Obviously your dog-siblings no is helping you with that important task! I's so glad you is ok! I bet your crazy hair only made you more beautimous. Your mama did a great job taking care of you and she better - you is too amazing to be away from your dogblog for very long!


Idaho PugRanch said...

Oh Puddles, we are glad that you are OK. Our vet does not give us shots every year anymore, maybe you can skip next year.

Bailey, Hazel & Greta

Ziggy Stardust said...

Puddles, I am so glad you are feeling better. I can only hope that your hairs are all back in place now, with none being damaged. I am glad there are no pictures of you like that, I couldn't bear to view them. Wow Albert and Whitney are just frozen in grief for you. Will you be pawing a book about this?? I was on the edge of my pillow when Mommy read it to me. You poor brave soul. You should be resting by your cheeto dispenser and beer on your posturepedic bed relaxing now.

What Remains Now said...

Wow-wee! I bet your mom was so scared. I'm glad you are invincible.

Anonymous said...

I'm half terrified and half amazed. You really don't do things like 50 %, you always take it to like 120 %. Six shots in one day and you still go hunting, now that's a doxie!

Molly the Airedale said...

Wow! What an awful experience for you, Puddles! We think you should just say NO to shots! That's how we would handle it *wink wink*

Love ya lots,
Mitch and Molly

The Furries of Whisppy said...

Ugh. That's lot of shots in a day! We're so relieved you are all better now. Aren't you glad your Mom didn't take photos of you with all those hives and post it up for EVERYONE to see?

OH my Dogs!!!
I have never nearly died, but have had a BAD cut on three of my PAWS.

P.S I think I know a little of what you are going through.

Cayden Dobe said...

Hi Puddles.

Thanks for coming to visit me. I didnt expect to find this on my first visit to your blog.
I am so glad that you are ok and that your MOM got you sorted out quickly.

Wooooaah that was way to scary for me


STELLA and RORY from Down Under said...

Howdy Puddles, Holy Crxp. What a day you had. You are one cool cucumber. Glad to hear you are ok now. Hope your mum has recovered from all that driving and speed dialling. Sounds like you both need a beer now. Take care sweetie pie. No worries, and love, Stella and Rory

ShellePenn said...

You know your momma should perhaps write a screenplay and get Hollywood to film it... I can see Angelina Jolie playing you.... Gerald Butler playing Albert.... Maggie Gyllenhall playing your sissie... Doctor Kevorikan playing your vet... and the soundtrack would be by Maroon 5...

Totally sounds great.
(mom has been drinking we thinks...)

Shelle, Milo, Dixie and Newby,

That was awful for you pUddles. I am so glad that you are A-ok and all by to yourself again!!

A MilShelb Mom said...

Holy Cow!! That is bad. Maybe you shouldn't get the shots anymore? Milly had a reaction this time and they said no more for her either. So, we are the no more shots girls, here.

Mary Lou said...

Oh, Puddles. You are like me!! Hard to kill!! Trust me on that one!! ;)
And now you are a druggie?! Poor baby!! :-(
I know how you feel in a sense. I always have strange medical issues happen to me, as well!! ;-]
Rest up, Friend!! ;op
Love, Raelyn.... And Rose, my BEAUTIFULLY UNIQUE "Mystery Dog"!!

Goodness gracious, what an adventure!

Anonymous said...

Whoa! It kinda looked like Albert and Whitney just fainted right there from bein' all skeered for you. That was nice of them.

Now, I already told my mom to tell your mom this but next time, maybe you oughta drink some beers before you go to the V.E.T. Even if you get all swolled up again, you won't CARE if you have to have six shots. Heehee!

I sure am glad you're feeling better, my furend!

Wiggles & Wags,

Tweedles -- that's me said...

That is a very scary experience Puddles- but the best part is that your getting better- right?

Bassetmomma said...

OMD! Puddles, I had no idea! Your Momma must have been worried sick! I can see just how worried Whitney and Albert were too. It actually looks like they passed out from shock. You are such a brave little beauty and I am so glad you are feeling better. Whew! I also want to thank you for your well wishes for our little Emma. :)

Peggy Frezon said...

OH my dog, Puddles! Are you serious! You must have quite an extreme allergy to that stuff. I'm so glad that you're doing better now. And next time you're due for your shots I know your mom will be a little anxious, but hopefully now they've got all the precautions all figured out.

Anonymous said...

Good grief! I am so glad you are okay! You went hunting when you were all doped up? Relieved you didn't get confused and deaded one of your siblings :O Invicible? For Sure and perhaps extremely dangerous too! BOL

Gonna whittle a wooden image of you Puddles so I can knock on it each and every day with the thought of you stayin healthy and not damaging yourself or others ;)

Waggin at ya,

Unknown said...

OMD Puddles!!!!
I can't beeleev this has happened to YOU! Wait, yes I can.......cuz you is Puddles (aka dog with all vet numbers on da speed dial).

Jed and Abby in MerryLand said...

Yikes, Puddles! Can the vet do a blood titer on you to see if you really need those shots? Abby just gets a distemper + titer every year and so far her results have been so good she doesn't have to get the shots. Jed does, though; his titer rates are too low. Just a thought.
