There is yet another Oaxaca fair at Parque de la Paz, which if you don’t know quite where it is,  it is on Avenida Itzaes across from Parque del Centennario (aka the zoo).   These fairs used to always be at Parque Santa Ana.  At some point in the last year and a half they were moved to Parque de la Paz, we don’t know why.  Parking is especially difficult on the weekends when the ample parking normally available is chock full of cars for sale.  If you are looking for a used car this where you go on Saturday night or all day Sunday!

Back to my story – Tom and I decided to go over to the fair last night, after the evening started to cool things down a bit.  We walked around, looked at all the stuff, the same stuff they have every year and that you can buy cheaper in Centro it seems to me.   There was a time when these fairs were a great adventure and you good wrangle a good deal on some stuff.

We bought a ball of fresh Oaxaca cheese for Tom, and a bag of pan de nata cakes for breakfast.  If you haven’t tried pan de nata I highly recommend you try it.  The texture is a bit like a scone, and the flavor is slightly sweet with hints of vanilla and something else…Nata by the way is the heavy film that forms over the top of whole milk when it sets up, so sort of like a condensed milk???   Well anyway, we bought cheese and pan de nata.    Then on the way home we stopped in at Chedraui to pick up a few things, we were both hungry and there was nothing really quick(not needing cooking, prepping, thinking about) to eat at home.  Now why we didn’t just go out for something is one of those mysteries of ‘US’.   We’d rather eat a bag of chips at home than go out most times!   Weird!

So anyway, again, Back to my story!    We get home, start putting our stuff away, and start assembling the stuff we bought to eat, now normally the first thing we do when we get home is open the back door and let the pups in – tonight however we well we just didn’t, neither of us really know why.   So we assemble our sandwiches, Tom had deli meat with lettuce and tomato, and I had sliced roasted chicken with lettuce and tomato.   We take our sandwiches and drinks (iceWater) in to the TV and set up our trays; American Idol was already on so we wanted to see that.   THEN we finally open the door for the poopies!

OMG!    Now you’ve seen Ceniza and Tech – I blog about them a bit too much!  Well for some!

So here for your memory is Ceniza, – Normally


Now look at this!
She got bitten/stung by something, we pried her mouth open to check her tongue and throat  which didn’t seem to be blocked, then managed to get a Benadryl down her and held ice packs over her eyes and snout.  She really seemed to like the ice packs.   Or maybe it was the extra attention.  Tech was really concerned – it was very interesting to see the dynamic.  Tech hovered and prodded…at one point Tatie, the cat, walked in Tech herded him around and away from where Ceniza was laying.   Really interesting the dog dynamic.  Reminded me a bit of the video  going around and on the news about the dog in Japan that would not leave its wounded buddy.
Well anyway, Ceniza is much better today, she still has some swelling, but it is greatly diminished.
These photos don’t quite capture what her face looked like, her lips and jowls were so thick and tight, her eyes were just slits, under her neck was all thick and lumpy…   but well what cha gonna do!

    Awww…poor thing. While you know me as “Deb's adventures here and there,” I have started a new blog on my Mexico adventures which you can see at http://www.isladeb.com I spent five days in Merida (my first time…which I loved) last week, so I can only hope I've done it justice with my blog. Hope to be back soon one of these days. Love your blog.

    Tom has decided, based on Ceniza's reaction, that the culprit must have been a bee or wasp!
    She's all better now, but was a bit draggy yesterday, the allergic reaction and the benadryl took its toll!

    Ouch! She does not look happy. All things pass.

    I assume you have no idea what was the culprit. But I love these dog tales. Especially dog pal tales.

    awww…. Cenizita. She looks like she is enjoying the comforting though. I love that Techie was protecting her.

    This poor pup seems to be a bit of a disaster magnet…hope she is better today so Techie can quit worrying!!
