    She's uncomfortable, but isn't in distress. I gave her an antihistamine immediately, of course.

    Oh, poor baby! She just looks pitiful. Ants are devil spawn; I know this first hand m'self. I'm sure she's getting extra love, but give her a lil hug from me, too.

    The only ants I find around here are very small. Too small to pierce skin with a bite. They do, however, emit an unpleasant scent when disturbed; quite possibly formic acid. I presume Clarice had a reaction to that repellant. All of the dogs have experienced the same thing; usually just once.

    No fire ants here.

    She still looks funny, but better this morning.
