It was 9pm the evening before we were leaving for vacation. I walked into the bedroom (pugs were on bed) and I began to notice that Zuzu's face seemed rounder than usual. She also looked tired. Upon further inspection I discovered lumps on her legs and inner thighs. She was obviously having some sort of allergic reaction to something. Not surprisingly DH began immediately accusing myself and my family (we had visited them that evening) of giving her something that did not agree with her. WHAT?! When all was said and done we took her to the Vet. hospial 30mi. away (it was a long night) where it was determined that it was from a spider or insect bite. She was fixed up and all was fine. The point of this story was to illustrate:
- It was not my fault.
- Who cares if it was, our dog needed immediate help.
- Did we really need to argue for the entire drive to the hospital?
- Other than frightening the dog what was accomplished from all of the arguing and blame?
