Yesterday, I left my Doggie Hotel Saga with being home,tucked into bed
with Gpa and keeping my eyes on Gma! I was miffed! During the night
I was up doing more poopies...Gma heard me and got up and changed
my potty station. By Wednesday mornin',I wasn't mad at Gma anymore....
I was not playing with my meals and eating right away.....Sometimes,I
play with my breakfast until early afternoon,when I finally finish it. You'd
think,that means,I get a bowl full. NOPE, it is 1/4 c with 10 pcs. of Purina
burger/cheese soft food topping my Nutro Small Breed Whole Chicken/
Brown Rice and Oatmeal formula. So anywho, ate and pottied...Softer
than before??? Then, I switched to poop,poop and more poop! OMD!
What's going on??????
I was bright eyed,wanted to play just making too many poops! Gma
told Gpa nothing but her pup food...What? She has a upset tummy!
I ate supper and what no venison nibbles like almost every night? Gma
did let me have a teenie tiny greenie (mostly rice) for bedtime snack.
We did our regular stuff in the evening and got ready for bed. So,we
are all snuggled in,Gma was watching Perry Mason. Gpa and myself
were fast asleep! It's 11:30 p.m., I DASH OUT OF THE COVERS.....
RUN DOWN MY PET STAIRS,RACE THROUGH THE BATHROOM.
BY PASSING MY SMALL POTTY STATION. RACE TO THE ENTRY,
WHERE I HAVE THE EXTRA LARGE STATION. I'M NOT AS FLEXIBLE
AS I WAS,WHEN I WAS YOUNGER!!!!
Gma jumps up and follows me, to see what is matter???? I NOW HAVE
LOTS AND LOTS OF MUSHY POOP! I'VE PLASTERED THE STATION!
I'VE NOW POOPED MORE IN 1 DAY THAN I EVER HAVE IN MY WHOLE
LIFE! These last dumps are like a cow on too much fresh green grass!
Big huge splats and no shape at all.... I'm done,Gma changes everything.
Back to bed we go.....took time for me to settle in and go back to sleep.
Gma said,my tummy was just rumbling....Gpa sleeps through the whole
Sometime during the night,I'm not talkin'.....I did this scenerio all over
again! Gma was out like a light. Gpa heard me, but didn't get up....
The next morning, the big station is all plastered again,when Gma
and I start our day. I'm still hungry and eat all my breakfast...It isn't
even 30 minutes and I'm running to poop some more! In less than
an hour,I have 3 poops they are very watery. The last 1 Gma can see
fresh blood in it. After that,I kept going back,doing circles,like I had
more business but nothing happened. I did this until 2 p.m.,but no
Gma had been trying to get through to the Fur Docs,line was busy!
Thursday is cattle sale day,so 1 Doc is there. It's calving season,so
2 were out on calls. The last Doc was in surgery with a cow. When
she finally spoke to the Vet Tech,they said, bring me in at 3:30 p.m.
By now,I have a very sore butt! Gma feels guilty for taking me to the
Doggie Hotel. Her good time for her Anniversary,now doesn't seem
like such a good time.....
She is also wondering,if I snatched something off the ground,while
walking with Gpa on Fri.,Sat., or Sunday??? Then she sees on
dogster, there are new food and treat recalls. She spends 2 hours,
checking to make sure nothing we have is on the current lists. She
is very worried about me. I'm not drinking as much as I should.....
I'm not feeling so good and I stick to Gma like glue. My eyes
are bright,no fever.....but,something is wrong!
We go to town and I was happy to take a ride in the car. I sure didn't
know,I was ending up at the Fur Hospital ! We arrived a little early,
expecting to wait with livestock emergencies. Only 1 Doc was there,
our new Girl Doc....She was in surgery with a cow! FUTURE FAST
FOOD BURGERS makes this nice 3 yr. old Golden Retriever and
myself have to wait??????????
As soon as I got in there,I wiffed the air and OMD! It's the place where
they always do something to me! I'M ON GMA'S LAP BUT SHAKING
LIKE A LEAF! Doxies throw dander, when they are anxious or stressed...
Gma goes back to the car, gets my big fluffy blanket and wraps me up.
I'm better now,but I want out of here A.S.A.P. I wasn't anxious when
Gma arrived to take me home from the Doggie Hotel.
Gma is really worried, I wasn't a real happy little camper either! 90 minutes
later,it's my turn. I'm going to be seeing the Girl Doc. This might not be so
bad after all??????? She doesn't act like, I'm a stock cow! Gma gives her
the whole story of my activities since last Friday. My short stay at Doggie
Hotel. My history of only being away from them both 1 night in my whole
life. What went in me and what came out of me! A yucky sample in a jar!
The whole 9 yards,as every detail was important to the Fur Doc. i'm always
current on all vaccinations.
Chrissie speaks softly to me....Examines my back and hips.(cuz,I'm doxie).
She feels my whole body and my tummy. Looks in my mouth and listens
to heart. Weighs me...They runs tests on my sample. While I'm there they
do my heartworm blood test and clip my nails too... Gma and Doc have a
Big POW-WOW,took forever......She tells Gma, that she keeps very accurate
records and is on top of things. Doc is impressed,that I'm cross trained
and NEVER SOILED anything in the HOUSE! It was a bad situation....
She was pretty sure I never picked anything off the ground that Gpa didn't
see....She said,I would have been sick before I was.....Since Gma didn't find
current recalls on things I eat,she wasn't concerned. She told Gma, she
had seen and treated...as well as had a Lab with the same issue....
Gma was told, I HAVE STRESS INDUCED BACTERIAL COLITIS. This was
after running tests and looking at my yucky Gma brought in....I HAVE WHAT?
LITIS????????? NO I DON'T...I HAVE A SORE BUTT AND AS SOON AS
I EAT .......PHEWY! I STINK AND POOP EVERYTHING RIGHT THROUGH ME!
NOW that I've grossed all my pals out.....I'll tell you the next time,what my
medicines are. How they are working? How long I have to take it??? What
her recommendations are for me returning to the DOGGIE HOTEL before
the month is over. Remember Gma is going to see her Mom for 3 wks.
So I was going to go there the day she packs,Gpa is suppose to pick me
up after Gma is on the very early silver winged bird. I've stayed at my
house,by myself in the past....The Fur Doc said, Do THIS and SEE WHAT
PLANS are taking the grand-kids on vacation to South Dakota in June....
These stays were scheduled, so I would get used to the place. The plans
for S.Dakota are 5-7 days. Well, I might just change those plans! You
think????????? OMD! Would my hooman sister be upset! I was there
at the Doggie Hotel when I was a puppy...A couple times when Gma
went shopping for the day. I spent 1 day and 1 night there. It's nice
clean, 5 star place....So, Gma says. If you're wondering why, I'm so
OLD and haven't been there on a regular basis???? It's cuz, this lady
was very sick a few years ago. She had to do a ton of Doctoring to be
made well again. Gma has known her for decades.....She used to groom
Angel Sassy Foxie, when Gma's arthritic hands couldn't do it anymore.
She's a SWEET LOVING LADY....I DON'T KNOW WHAT HAPPENED???
