I'm sorry that your question wasn't answered in a timely manner. Please let me know if you still need help. May I have an update on Buster, please?

It sounds as if he were envenomated by a flying insect, spider, or snake or perhaps a plant awn (foxtail, e.g.) found its way into his ear.

Foxtail. Got him to a vet. Handled last night... 8 hours ago.

Thank you for the update. I appreciate your taking the time to let me know. You may receive an inappropriate follow-up from the site ostensibly sent by me. It wasn't and I apologize in advance should you receive it.
