We had a little scare with Chief tonight. The little guy got into something and had a horrible reaction. The vet said it appears to be a sting or bite from some kind of insect. My guess is he got into one of the large garden spiders hanging out above our vegetable garden. Regardless, it scared me when I first noticed and his breathing was becoming difficult on our way to the emergency clinic. At first I thought he had a ball or something in his mouth but when I reached in his mouth I discovered it was all lips. All's well that ends well. $125 and two shots later he seems much better. He's at my feet sleeping it off. Little bugger.
