Rabbits

My girl broke out in a rash on Saturday evening after our outing to visit my grandma followed by dinner with the family. It started with this pain on her left ear and she screamed when I was trying to wash her hair in the morning. I found out later that night, that there was eczema right at the top of her ear. No wonder she was in pain! It was scary though, as she was constantly scratching her neck, body and her ears (both) had turned red that evening. However, as we were out, lighting was dim and I hadn't realized that it was bothering her all over. It was only when I showered her again in the evening that I discovered all the rash on her body. I applied cream for her in the affected areas but it didn't help to relieve the itch so she was scratching most of the night, thus it affected my sleep too, worrying about what could be wrong. Thankfully, she was well again in the morning, and not a bother on her.

I decided to prepare a salad dinner for us, as a way to detox our system, hoping that it will clear away whatever toxins that are present within her. For this plate of salad, she got 5 stickers for her reward chart. I think it was great that she almost finished the entire portion of it, leaving just a few leaves of lettuce and the raisins behind. Don't know why, she just wasn't in the mood for raisins. I left out the dressing on hers but I gave her some of it in a separate bowl. She didn't touch that. She preferred hers plain.

For ours, I drizzled some thousand island, not my dressing of choice, I prefer Ranch, but they were out of it at the supermarket. The stuff that went into the salad were butterhead lettuce, Japanese cucumber, tomatoes/cherry tomatoes, fresh corn kernel (very sweet), celery, hardboiled eggs, pasta, cocktail sausages, shredded carrot, raisins and roasted walnut.

Glad she is fine the next day. Maybe she had allergy reaction on one of the food.
