Okay, giant scorpions didn’t actually eat my dog. And they weren’t actually giant. Sierra the Chihuahua got stung by a small scorpion she accosted in the living room.
Ironically, I just returned from a trip to the desert (trip report here), and we didn’t see a single scorpion.
It was time for a visit from the pest control people anyway, so I called them and they told me, “Scorpions are gonna be really bad this year.”
I also called the vet, who told me to give Sierra a quarter of a Benadryl.
