Poor Pitiful Puppy

We have two basset hounds, Wallace and Gromit. They are indoor/outdoor dogs, who for the most part prefer their own company, unless food is involved. They are good dogs who tolerate the boys.

Yesterday, Wallace started puking; he’s the one that is always getting into something. As it was full of grass, which is par for the course with him, I didn’t think anything of it. This afternoon, I noticed he seemed a little lethargic, he’s a basset, it’s not that far from normal. So, I gave him some extra attention and noticed his neck felt warm and swollen. I brought him out into the yard (we’d been in the garage) where I could get a good look and I didn’t care for what I saw.

I know he reacts badly to bee stings, but I’m still worried, poor puppy. He has an appointment at five.

He’s fine, the puking was unrelated. He must have run into the snake this morning, just before we left for a couple of hours.
