Sick doggy




It's my 100th post and I guess I should be writing something really special, but my dog is sick and I can't. I'm a little worried about him. He was with hubby last week and got into one of his dog buddy's bones and the diarrhea started. We went away for the weekend for family stuff, and he wasn't that bad, but on Tuesday night, it got worse. I had been giving him rice and it seemed to help. I knew something was up the minute I heard his claws on the floor, I woke up straight away, woke up hubby and then SPLAT. The smell was OUTRAGEOUS! I took him out, while hubby cleaned up. I came back upstairs to find kleenex stuck in his nose. It was actually very funny. We opened up the windows, Febreezed the bedroom and bathroom, scrubbed the carpet, threw the bathroom rugs in the washer, yes, it was THAT BAD! Went to sleep finally once we put nice smelling stress release spray on the pillows.

We went to the vet yesterday and the doc put him on antiobiotics right away. The poor thing. He was so lethargic, so mopey, so not himself. He still eat treats, so he can't be that bad, right? I shouldn't have waited so long, I'm usually so fussy about his health. I am now cooking his meals, rice and chicken, which he is eating with gusto, but I was sure he'd be right as rain this morning. Speaking of which, it's raining here and I would like some sunshine now, please. Get better, Samps, please.

Oh, I sincerely hope that he gets better! I suspect with your good cooking and some anti-biotics, he will come around nicely.

Deathstar, when I read this I was completely where you are-- may he make a full and swift recovery...I am a TOTAL and COMPLETE mess when Lucy is sick...and she's kind of a sickie.

Get better soon, Sampson! I really hope the drugs fix you right up. And I'll happily trade you some sunshine and wind for a good few days of rain...

Oh my goodness. I hope Samps feels better really soon. I hate it when my fur-babies are not well. He's adorable, btw.

Also, lol. I am indeed a sister :)
