My poor little dog has struggled through all this heat and humidity. I have been putting her into a bath of water to cool her down and as I haven't been able to get an appointment with the groomer her coat is long and thick.
After a lot of mucking around I was finally able to get her clipped yesterday but now she is not well. I think she has an ear infection and her good eye isn't the best. (She is blind in the other eye.) When her coat came off she started to scratch and has horrible raw patches at the place where her legs join her body. So it was down to the ferry and off to the Vet. She does have an eye and ear infection and that very expensive dog food I bought is giving her hot spots. We came home with a bag full of medicine and my wallet $500 lighter.
At one stage I was wondering if the wasps that attacked me in the garden didn't bite her as well? I know I have been suffering. I have bad reactions to all kinds of bites.
No one warned me about the wasps. When asked why my hand and arm were so swollen, I said wasp bites. Everyone I talked to had tales about the wasps here. I was trying to clear a vine from the clothes line when they attacked. (They are now dead.) I want to clear the weeds from the garden beds but I am going to be very careful after my last experience. Oh the joys of living in a tropical paradise.
