Pumpkin-head pug

Little girl had a horrible reaction to a vaccination for Leptospirosis yesterday. Five hours after the shot, all of the sudden, within 15 minutes, I watched my little baby's face and head swell up to the size and consistency of a bowling ball. She couldn't even open her eyes.

Luckily, our vet saw her immediately, and gave her a dose of intravenous steroids that put her on the path to Immediate Mend! Soon, she went from looking like a cantalope to looking like a pug-Sharpei.

Later, as the swelling went done, more like a French bulldog.

Those fatter lips were sure handy for chewing her favorite bone.


  1. OH MY BABY!!!! my heart breaks. she looks so miserable, oh my little deedee. good think you got her to the evil vet right away.

  2. NOOOOOOOO NOOOOOOO oh my poor baby.
