Toy Chest - Tuesday

You would think that I would run out of stuffed animals to present to you guys on Toy Chest - Tuesday but there are still plenty to go on top of the new ones that get bought.  The stuffed animals are lasting a lot longer now so I have not had any R.I.P. (rest in pieces) animals to announce in a long time.  I think we have pretty much become experts on being able to figure out what stuffed animals will last over which ones he will destroy pretty quickly.  So today we introduce, Froggy #3.  Riggs loved the last two frog stuffed animals we got, but he destroyed them before we introduce them to you.  We finally found a frog that seems to be holding up much better.

No I'm not Frank

Do you know how many times I hear, "Hey look, it's Frank from the Men in Black movie".  Way too many times folks.  Yes there was a pug in the Men in Black movie called Frank but no my dog is not named Frank.

Rushed to the emergency vet!

What a horrible stressful day today.  Riggs had to be rushed to the emergency vet tonight.  Earlier today was Riggs' yearly shots.  So we took him to his regular vet and dropped him off.  Unfortunately, we think our vet got a little behind and did not give him his shots till close to the end of the day.  We came to pick him up right as they were closing.  We were heading back to the car and could tell there was definitely something wrong with him.  Riggs started to throw up, his tongue got really pale and he was rubbing his face hardcore.  We could tell his muzzle and snout was all swollen.  Riggs was having a severe allergic reaction to his shots.  The vet was closed and told us we needed to take him to an afterhours facility (what the hell!).  We rushed over there, the poor guy was itching so bad and you could tell he was really nauseous.  The emergency vet gave Riggs a shot of a strong concentration of Benadryl and a steroid shot.  After about 30 mins, he looked much better.  Poor guy was wiped out and slept the whole rest of the night.

While Riggs is obsessed with his stuffed animals still, he loves Nylabones.  He will spend a good hour chewing on that thing.  It is really good for his teeth to keep them clean so we are thrilled he loves them.  Now if we can just get him to quit expecting us to hold it for him while he chews it.
