Suki is our puppy but she's getting so big. Jonah just taught her how to play dead. We point our finger at her and yell "bang!" She reluctantly lays down on her side and stays very still.

Here she is as a super cute puppy.

It's kind of hard to tell from the picture but she was bit by something a couple of weeks ago. The first picture was taken the day before, the second picture is the following day. You can tell that her nose if swollen as well as her jowls and it even spread up to her eyes and ears. We took her into the vet because it just kept getting worse. They gave her a cortisone shot and it went down right away.
No one knew what had bit her. We had many suggestions that it could have been a wasp, fire ant or a scorpion. I wasn't sure any of those things could have done it because her face was so huge. Well, the following week, I went to go outside and found a baby rattle snake at my back door. I am pretty sure this is what bit Suki.
She is fine now and hopefully she has learned a lesson from it all!
