On Friday night, I got the bright idea that hubby and I should get our H1N1 shots. So we went to our local City of Ottawa office, got some wrist bands, went home and came back two hours later to get stabbed with needles. I was nervous, because the last time I got a flu shot, the nurse jammed it into my arm, but the H1N1 needle is small and you barely feel it.
Well that is until the next day when you feel like you were hit by a Mack truck! I was incredibly sick the entire weekend-Dizziness, nausea, extreme fatigue and migraines-you name it, I had it. It sucked big time! Anyways, I feel better today, but I just thought I would warn you guys that there is a chance you could have a reaction to the shot. I have never had reactions to flu shots before but this one kicked my ass!
On a brighter note, Selena got groomed and isn’t she sweet?:
Good thing she was groomed too because we went to Licoln Fields for the Santa Paws event. For the unitiated, Santa Paws is an event organized by the Humane Society (I still have faith in them despite my last post) where you can have your furbeasts photo taken with Santa. Selena met some cute puppies before her picture. Like this Newfie:
and Springer Spaniel (wearing the latest from the Walmart pet section):
Selena’s photos with Santa will be available in a week. Here is an image of the process-Santa holds the confused animal, while some guy squeezes a squeak toy to get their attention and the photographer snaps away. One person brought their cat who was so incredibly tolerant of the whole thing. (Our cats would freak the fuck out! LOL)
Check your local shelter and see if a similar event is going on near you!:)
