Dog Gets Stung And Just Keeps On Smiling

Here's a curious dog who apparently just had a painful run-in with a bee (or some other poisonous creature). But despite that unpleasant encounter, and the swollen face it left her with, it doesn't seem to have ruined her day one bit.

Photos of the dog, presumably taken at a veterinary clinic where she was treated, have been making the rounds on Imgur - and it's easy to see why. In classic dog fashion, the dog still appears to be all smiles.

Facebook user Natthathida Nilburt, who shared the dog's photos this week, indicates that the dog was given medication and has since recovered.

There's certainly something striking about the cartoonish mug of a puffy-faced pup, but insect stings should be taken very seriously. If left untreated, they can be fatal.

If your pet gets stung, experts recommend carefully removing the stinger as soon as possible and contacting your veterinarian for advice on what to do next.
