He is your friend, your partner, your defender, your dog. You are his life, his love, his leader. He will be yours, faithful and true, to the last beat of his heart. You owe it to him to be worthy of such devotion.

First of all Happy Gotcha Day to Nicky ......11 years of pampered living at your house.

Any bug bite can cause an allergic reaction so I would go ahead and give her some Benadryl. If it's a bite it will work fairly quick to being the swelling down so if it doesn't help then it's vet time.

Hope it's nothing serious.

It could be a sprain, too. Our guys are all getting frisky because the weather is so nice and spraining their paws leaping up on the deck

If you think it's a sprain, you can put some ice on it. Keeping her quiet will help a lot, too. I hope she's better soon
