My Labor Day

Well hellos kids!
Since Monday was Labor Day I decided to gives mum da
day off cuz her works so hard fur me.
It was really cuz dad was home and him has a tendency to kink
up da routine.

But mum did howevers go to da gym on Monday mornin'.
When hers came home dad said to hers dat sumptin' was wrong
withs my eye. So mum came to looks at me and hers was all like...

Yes, folks...I had me anudder allergic reaction!
I has no photos but I drew some fur ya'll.
See my eye?
It was swollen shut and my head was swollen AND da side of my mouf.
And by da way, I is no kitteh but I is not good at drawin' Puddles whiskers.

Mum not remembers da dosage of my Benadryl so hers haded to call da
vet's wife at home cuz da clinic was know, it bein' a holiday
and all. If they hadded been opened then I would had nevers had a reaction.
Anyways, her said I needed 2.5 ml.
Mum gave it to me...I drinks it out of a medicine cup.
Then her called back and da vet said I needed 2.5 ml more cuz I be specials.
So then I tooks me some more Benadryls.
Then I went outside to gets some fresh airs.

There I was with one eye and drugged up on Benadryls.
Dat SOOOOOO not stops da Puddles from huntin' some squirrels.

I seened me some squirrels out of my one good eye!
I crouched down in my stalkin' position...then I tooks off, flyin' off da deck
afters da squirrels...then I yelled back at mum...
"LOOK MUM...ONE EYE!!!!!!"
Sees, I can even hunt withs one eye!
I just glad no trees was in front of me...hehehehehe!
Mum says there was only one squirrel but I knows good and well I seen three of 'em...
...cuz da Benadryl tolded me there was three squirrels.
needless to say, they gotted aways.

So dat was my Labor Day, it wasn't so bad cuz I haded a nice nap afters all dat. to buy stock in Benadryl.

Oh Lord, about falling off the sofa laughing! Awesome self-portrait, Puddles! And so generous of you to single-handedly put one of your Vet's kids through college...

Cowspotdog said...

you were lucky you were not seeing pink squirrels - or maybe they were :) Allergies are so darn annoying.

The Furries of Whisppy said...

Mommy is laughing so hard, she's coughing and coughing away!

Marg said...

Oh Puddles, we are so sorry your allergies flared up again. But the Mom sounds like she was on top of it all. And by the way, we love the drawings. and those whiskers do look like a kitteh. Hope you all have a great week.

GOOSE said...

Puddles oh how my friend Belle could have used your help on our trip. The squirrels and even chipmunks seemed to surround us. With you and Belle I bet we could have rid Wyoming of all their squirrels. I think the state would have paid us good green papers and treats for that. I hope the eye is all better. Oh and one more thing. I just can not imagine you, Puddles, with a swollen head. You are so humble I just can't picture that. Maybe you could draw me a picture so I can get a visual. Oh and another thing.... those squirrels you have there look HUGE. Almost as big as rabbits. You are one tough and brave girl.

jen said...

What in the world is up with you and your allergic reactions? You are giving me heart failure over here!Stop doing that or I'm going to have to come visit you and give you squeezes!
Glad you're better!

Unknown said...

Yikes Puddles we hope you are better now. We too would be hunting squirrels. Nothing stops us either. I nearly caught one yesterday. Drats it landed behind me and got away as I turned. So near yet so far. Have a wonderful Wednesday.
Best wishes Molly

Geoauntie said...

Oh Puddles poor you to have an allergy, glad your mum got the remedy though. Love the drawings I am sure you could get them hung in the Tate Gallery or The Louvre, hehehe. Lady Vicki xxooxx

houndstooth said...

I think you have those allergic reactions on the holidays just to keep your humans on their toes! I'm really glad that you're okay.

So, is that Benedryl kind of like moonshine?


The Websters said...

You are one mighty huntress Puddles! Those squirrels probably got word that you were all drugged up and teamed up to taunt you. They are evil evil critters.


Angels Amber and Max DaWeenie and Mom said...

UhOh...dat Benedryl stuff sent you to LaLa Land, huh! Sure you wasn't just dreamin' dat you saw da tree rats? Oh, I nose....since dere were 3 of dem, you didn't nose which one to chase, right?


I nose you would have deaded it if you only saws one!

Murphy said...

Oh dear, you weren't drinking beer with that were you? We found the art work excellent. It brought us right into the story. Glad you are better after your nap!

Your Pals,

Murphy & Stanley

Frankie Furter and Ernie said...

OMD We are gonna have to change your name to Puddles Picasso! Your Drawings are WONDERFUL...

That Benadryl stuffs is... GOOOOOOOOD

You could give our Dad.. Ol' Sure Shot some Hunting Lessons.

Wonder why your MUM could only see ONE of those squirrels? Strange

Pippen said...

Okay, so it's great that you are feeling betters and all butt we gots a question for you... How did your mom know your head was swollen? We thought your head was always huge...

Sam and Pippen

Lovable Lily said...

Goodness Puddles, what did you get into this time? We think you should buy a Pirates eye patch for the next time.

That was a lot of squirrels all in one place just standing there waiting for you. Being on all that doggie crack, bet you ran a crooked line while chasing them.

We sure hope that you are feeing much, much better today.

Lily Belle & Muffin

p.s. You are a pawsome artist!

Matilda the Boxer said...

BOL! Oh, Puddles, you get into the kerAZIest things!!

Brian's Home Blog said...

Dang Puddles, I sure hope those allergies leave you alone soon!

Yamini MacLean said...

Hari OM
BOL x 87's a wonder those squirrels didn't multiply by the end of the post! Gracious, I never heard of Benedryl for allergies; which BTW I am full of just now 'cuz am busy preparing for departures and there's always dust lurking at the back of things, no matter how busy one keeps trying for there not to be.

So I sympathize with swollen eyes
sneezing lots and frothy snots
running into doors and trees
tripping up to land on knees
finding minutes in the day
in which to breath and on bed lay
but I don't have the 'fuzzy' juice
to turn those birdies into fruits
Though the only meds I need
are Puddle's posts and i'net speed!!!

Hugs and wags, YAM-aunty xxx

My Dog Sam - Ruptured Disk said...

Holy sheets there Puddles, what happened when your mom was out exercising her muscles? We hope that your eye is better now and that both are open. If it was a bit closer to Halloween, your mom could put a pirate patch over your swollen eye and you could be a politician :)

stellaroselong said...

We hates benadryl cos it makes us foam at the mouth for some reason and mom thinks we have rabies and she doesn't think benadryl will take care of rabies....our mom is stoopid.....we hopes your swollen eye gets better......i wonder if you are allergic to your dad?

Imagine with two eyes you had to fight against 6 squirrels... wow that's a hard work. I hope your eye is well soon and you can chase away that allergy-gremlin.All my best wishes for you, you are a brave girl!

Taryn said...

What a hilarious story, Puddles! I hope your eye is all better ow.

Idaho PugRanch said...

Holy Moly Puddles! I take benadryl sometimes when my feet get to itchy. Maybe I need a bigger dose cause I don't see multiple squirrels like you.
Bailey & Hazel too

Unknown said...

Oh dear did you get bit? I get Benadryl like twice a day (in PB I know mom) for my allergies. She gets it at Costco in bulk. Love Dolly

Dachshund Nola said...

STELLA and RORY from Down Under said...

HOwdy Miss Puddles, jeez we just finished reading the Three Little Pugs post and now this and we are cracking up. Sorry, we're laughing with you not at you! Your drawings are ace. Sorry about the allergic reaction and hope your eye is better now. Mum says maybe she'll get some of that Benedryl cept she'll use it on her self hehehe. We told her it don't help old eyes just puffy ones, ha. No worries, and love, Stella and Rory

Duke said...

We've never had Benadryl before but we've seen it in mom and dad's medicine chest. We definitely need to sneak some of this good stuffs!

Love ya lots♥

Puddles, I say this with much love, have they considered a bubble for you to live in? It would take a lot of stress from your Mom. They could maybe build you like a whole little world in there with access to the whole house, but just inside the bubble. I could come and visit and we could play chase with you inside the bubble of course. The only bad part might be when you get gassy. I haven't figured out that one yet, but still the bubble thing could work. I have allergies too and I am pretty much hooked on benedryl. I get jittery when I don't get some. We might have to start a support group. I am going to the Vetlady tomorrow about it. Wish me luck.

Loveys Sasha

p.s. we could both get bubbles and have bubble races

Anonymous said...

Oh boy...what else should we have expected out of you?? ANOTHER allergic reaction?? Maybe you're allergic to your Mum's whining about her HELLbow? But, if she was at the gym, we're guessing her HELLbow is feeling better these days.

So what caused your allergy flare-up this time around? I can almost guarantee you that your Vet's wife has a running joke and bet going about how many weekend days and holidays your Mum will call their house...and how many times each of those days that she'll call (because you know it's normally more than once when she does have to call!). ;)

As for the squirrels...there probably WERE 3 of them there taunting you! Those darn squirrels are evil and they gang up on pups to drive them crazy. Guess your Kerazy Lady just can't see or count right...yeah, that's it! Bwahaha!

genji said...

I'm glad you drew a picture. A photo would have been too graphic. Benadryl works wonders.

Scooter said...

Hey Puddles!
Wow, I gotta tell you, you look a little like Rocky in that drawing! Now I have that theme song in my head and I want to run up and down a big bunch of steps and punch a side of beef. Um, anyway, sorry about your sickies and I sure hope those drugs worked for you. The story definitely worked for me! Oh, BWAR HAR HAR
Grr and Woof,
Sarge, COP

Val said...

oh lordy Puddles, that is one heck of a day. We love all the artwork included in the post today. Can't imagine seeing the "real" thing. Hope you are feeling better.

KB said...

Your drawings are awesome. That sure was a hair-raising day. I'm glad you're okay, and that the 3! squirrels didn't gang up on you.

K had many many allergic reactions. Later in her life, the vet gave us a syringe of stuff to keep at home and to give her when she started swelling up like that. For her, benedryl didn't work sometimes. So, we had a backup plan (since we live 30 min from the vet). You might ask your vet for a syringe like that.

Glad you're okay!

Bobbie said...

LOL! You are something! Great artwork Puddles! Poor you!! I'm glad you got your benedryl and are all better. YOu are... all better, right?

kissa-bull said...

So was chasing the squirrels on drugs extra fun?! Buwahahaha

Ruby said...

HOLY CRAP GURL!!! WTF did you do now??!! Shoot, I takes the Benadryl every single day, and I nevers had ANY reaction (thou, Ma was SOOOO hopin' that I would! Somethin' abouts my hyperbutts needin' calmin' such luck)
Wells, good things you only had that one six-pack or you would have REALLY been seein' thingies!!
Now, Ma LOVED the art works! Thou, the tree rats looked a little small to me....I'm sure they were as big as Wabbits!!!
Anyhu, I hopes your feelin' betters, and I will send you a case of the Benadryls. And a six pack. (don't take em' togethers thou...)
