For over 10 years our dogs have been photographed for the BrownTrout Calenders. Every now and then those photos show up in funny places. Above is my Gussy showing her pretty smile on a blanket. I have also seen them on a silly schnauzer wallpaper border. My favorite is the one below of Bailey on one of the Pedigree Little Champions packages.

OUCH! A week and a half ago Gussy was stung by a wasp, the right side of her face swelled, her eye was swollen shut, her lip almost 2 inches thick. Benedryl, a cold soaking and prednisone brought it down over the next 4 days, whew. Then Thursday I put her in her crate for a couple of hours and when I opened the door....this is what she looked like ACK! I hustled her off to the vet thinking she was stung again. According to the vet it would be MOST unusual (as in he has never seen) for a dog to have a second sting cause a reaction. Best guess is an under lying staph infection from the first sting and an over reactive immune system. I hate when anything happens to Gussy as she is just the most wonderful schnauzer, she isn't demanding, is always grateful for any and all attention she receives and is never a bully or confrontational with my other dogs. On the plus side Gussy has enjoyed her pill stuffed hot dogs every day. Her eye is now open and the ulceration has calmed down and isn't nearly as painful looking. Hopefully she will be posing for much more pretty photos soon.

The road out front has been a hive of activity the last few days. Started with the drainage ditch that runs along front of the property being dug out. Thank goodness as our driveway was turning into a mud pit each time it rained. Now that that is clear, they have started to resurface the road, at least I hope it will be resurfaced, at the moment they have removed the pavement and we have a dirt road out front. Nice because it slows the cars down, however VERY dusty. All this construction has my house of inquisitive schnauzers amused.

Edee my little girl with the huge ears...seems she has finally grown into those big flappers:-) I am doing some coat work on Edee in the hopes of having her ready for the show ring later this year. Here she is at 13 months old looking all grown up.
