About three days after we got Marcus, I learned the hard way that we have Stinging Nettles all over our neighborhood. Normally dog's fur protects them from the "sting" but on their muzzle the fur tends to be too short to help. The tips can inject pure histamine into anyone that wanders close enough, so the reaction tends to be pretty pronounced. I though poor Marcus was going to scratch his face off.

 

I'd keep a look out for these guys in case they were the culprit:

We're not sure what it was, she didn't have a scratch or bite on her, from what we could see.  It might have been a wasp, or eating something new.. no clue.  If it happens again, I'll get her tested and figure it out for sure.

Poor little girl, do you know what she had the allergic reaction to?
