Organizing your dogs? LOL... NOT!!
Organizing and dogs don't really work! LOL You can organize their things of course...but not them.
If they are properly trained, going outside to potty is not a problem. But when they are sick...thing are different.
I am writing this because "things are different" in this house in the last few days.
Gizzy (above) has been sick. She started getting sick Saturday night and had me up 3 times through the night. She had both V and D. (I really don't want to write them out...I think you get the point...it is breakfast time you know)
I ended up taking her into the vet hospital yesterday morning. She had blood in both her V and D yesterday am. She has been in since yesterday and getting IV fluids to hydrate her. They think she has either pancreatitis from the high fat content in the steak bone we gave her Thursday night or an obstruction. They are holding off doing x-rays and all kinds of labs and just watching her (I appreciate that $$$)
Enter Sadie - She has been fine, just worried because her sissy isn't here.
But I came down to find two (one on linoleum but the other in the boys bedroom carpet...ggggrrrrhhhh)places where she had had D. No not her too!! (she is my soul mate doggie)
I called the vet and they said to take her food and water away. Give her ice cubes to keep her hydrated and cook up some hamburger meat (drained) and give her little bits and that helps with the D.
Dog hair to clean up, vet bills, ruined carpet (Gizmo chewed up a red ink pen 2 years ago and we had to replace the carpet in the family room because of it)from pens and D/V, rolling in poop at the farm, bad breath....WHY DO WE LOVE THESE ANIMALS? LOL I don't know...but we love them and they are a part of the family...so we deal with the bad along with the good.
