Yes Patty, knock on wood I have never been stung by a bee, hornet, or wasp. To me they are all same and equally as scary. I am so scared of them and for some reason they always seem to find me. I once gave a wasp a 10 min ride on my shoulder unknowingly until someone was so kind to point it out well in between shrills almost fainting I was unharmed. They even seem to find me in the winter I have no idea...
I did read "The Secret Life of Bees" and in that book they described the creatures as angels or lil guardians so maybe that is what bees are for me my lil guardians.
Oscar on the other hand is not so lucky. Well if you remember back in April when I went to the Er and the next day Osc had to go to the ER. Well he was stung then, and again last Wed. I woke up to one itchy pug with a swollen eye. I thought not again, I gave him a benedryl and I think I caught just in time. He only got about three hives total rather then a whole body fully covered in big itchy hives. So I stayed home and worked on a painting so I could monitor his breathing. I gave him a benedryl every 6 hours and his eye returned to normal size and low and behold we made it without a trip to the ER.
Well most of you know Oscar has anxiety and is already a very sensitive pup. I think today the emotionally scars have finally healed. My poor lil guy was so scared of the grass and ground. He is back to following my every step but not without a thorough search of the ground he is about to embark on. The first night he wouldn't leave the couch so I made the most comfy bed for him and he would jump from furniture to furniture.
His poor lil swollen and itchy face. I found the bump right on his ear no wonder his eye got swollen.
