Bo update

Bo is doing a lot better. He was one sick little puppy. When we got him to the vet he was running a 105 degree temperature. They did blood work and x-rays, which were both fine, so did not know what was causing the temperature, but were very concerned about him becoming dehydrated which can be deadly in these little guys. They wanted to keep him in and give him IV hydration but he was so stressed whenever they separated him from me, they decided to let me take him home and try giving him oral Pedialyte for a few hours and see if he started to respond. So, we came home with him armed with antibiotics, Pedialyte and a pediatric medicine syringe, and my daughter and I took turns squirting a few ounces of fluids into his mouth at a time over the next few hours. Finally at about 7:oo p.m. we took his temperature and the fever had broken, and he has progressively been getting better since. I sat up with him all night watching him (kept up with fluids and taking temperature, fearing for febrile seizures) but he slept all night and did fine. Don't know what the cause of the fever was, but the amoxicillin and fluids seem to have taken care of it.

Now on to other things. My birthday is coming up. Oh, no, the birthday fairy has tracked me down again. I made a wish for my birthday, maybe you can help. Well, I make a lot of wishes, but since I am not going to turn into Penelope Cruz, this wish is a little more realistic.

Alrighty, need to get some new things in Shaggy, so will have some picture later today.

Up and Running

Been trying to get this going forever, waiting to get a pretty banner, but will wait forever for that, so will just go with this for now and get banner later. Just want to get SOMETHING out there today.

First have to say, got in my Mega Box from Sampler Village yesterday and one of the samples was from DoodyPops Dog Treats who sell on Etsy. My dogs went crazy for these treats! You have to check them out. Now, for the faint of heart, they look like... dog poop! In fact, I was calling them Doody Poops instead of Doody Pops, lol! But let me tell you, after I passed out the couple of treats to 3 of the 7 dogs, there was a rampage in the house, knocking over the garbage can, going after the baggie to see if there was a crumb left. I immediately ran to laptop and ordered a pound of poop! So here is my recommendation of the week - You have to see them, plus the Shoe doody version!

My little Bo is under the weather today and I have to take to the vet later today. Not sure what is going on, but he is not himself, not playing, not the life of the party. He is usually the one being picked up and put in "time out" and he is just laying on the sofa looking at everyone else, and not even wanting to go out. Knowing Bo, he could have eaten an earring, a battery, or gotten into anything - I have seen him jump on my daughter's bed, then onto printer, then onto computer desk, then on to book case, then onto hamper, and then onto nightstand where cat food dish is to keep off the floor from the dogs.

Will let you know later after I get back from vet.
