The Goal: to take and post at least one picture each day for the entire year that I'm 27.

I find that I rush through the day, to rush through the week, to get to the weekend...just to find that an entire year goes by in the blink of an eye. So, on the eve of my last day as a 26 year old I decided to make a change. I challenged myself to take the time each day and find at least one moment worth remembering, hoping that in this way I will learn to live each day for what it is. For regardless of how uniform the days may feel at a glace each one is truly unique and worth cherishing.

Day 340 - The price of love

Well Ashby made it 3-1/2 years with out an emergency...
(Her brother barley made it 3 months - he's been an expensive little boy)

Today when we got up Steve noticed that Ashby had a puffy muzzle
Within an hour her whole face was bright red and about 3 times larger than normal
If you've ever seen the movie Hitch (with Will Smith)...well Ashby looked just like his
By time I got Ashby to the vet her face was so swollen that she couldn't see
She was crawling around on her belly trying to find her way - poor baby

The vet said that she was probably having a reaction to a bug bit like an ant, bee, or scorpion
We are thinking it was the ants (there were some in the backyard but Steve took care of them this afternoon)
Either way: after an emergency vet trip, a pretty decent bill, 2 shots, and an afternoon of rest...
Ashby is almost all healed...just a bit of puffy cheeks and chin left

* Sorry for no picture of Ash and her expanding face...but I was kind of stressing out at the time
