Mishap at the Doctor's

On Saturday morning I took Rage to the vet for his annual shots. He was, to our surprise, a very good boy. That is until the doctor came in... He doesn't like the doctor and he got so upset that he lost is breakfast right there on the examining table. We thought this was due to nerves, but really he was having an allergic reaction to the shots. Several hours later when we got back to Gran and Pop's we noticed that his nose was swelling. By the time we got back to Dr. Irelan's office his paws and his little body had swelled as well. The vet tech gave him a shot of cortizone and some allergy pills. Needless to say his nose has returned to normal size, but he now has to get a cortizone shot each year before he gets his shots... Lord Help... could things get any more complicated with this dog!!
Weighing in at a whopping 7lbs, 4 oz

Fat Nose :(
He looks like a chipmunk.

Poor Ragie! I'm sure in his mind he's thinking this is a great excuse to NOT get shots each year. :)
