My Dog Broke

I don't know how you like to spend your mornings but I'll tell you, when I'm not at Boot Camp, I like to haul my dog up the street to the emergency vet first thing. See, last night, I noticed that a lump on his face that was getting bigger by the hour. Upon further inspection, it became clear that was probably an infected tooth. This is him last night- notice the big ball on his right cheek.

So I didn't panic, but this morning I woke up and it had doubled in size and he was in a LOT of pain. It's hard to capture a good picture but here he is at the vet:

They told me not to panic but to get him to his real vet either today or tomorrow so they could drain my wallet the abscess or maybe remove his tooth. Then they gave him some antibiotics and a huge shot of morphine. The walk home was like dragging your drunk friend out of a bar. Impossible. Here he is all drugged up on my couch.
