I Think I was Stung by a Wasp

8-29-17 So Doggy Nanny, Grandpa, Gracie and I were just sitting on the porch just minding our own business when outta nowheres I felt a poke.  I screamed and Doggy Nanny said that she saw a wasp fly away. We don't know for sure that he was the one that hurt me but I did get a swelling on my shoulder and kept reaching back to scratch it because it hurt!  I got in Doggy Nanny's lap and didn't move for the longest time till momma came home then I went over to her with my tail tucked and a pittyful face and told her about my horrible afternoon.  She said that she had some *MAGICAL* cheese that would make me feel better.....but it only made me sleepy.  So I took a good long nap.

After that we went for a quick golf cart ride through the neighborhood to ease my suffering.  It was nice I saw Badger the Yellow Lab and 2 baby deer.  So that helped!  When I woke up this morning the swelling was gone and it didn't hurt.  So alls well that ends well huh but I will be watching for them mean old wasps and staying far away in the future.

9-14-17 Update: after my magical cheese helped the swelling go down I felt better.  A few days later the little lump that was left drained and momma kept it clean while it healed.  Now I have no bump, no scar, and feel fine.  But I am still mad at that mean ol wasp!
