It started yesterday morning (Friday). The dogs went out one by one and returned to the house where they got their nice juicy bones. All was well, but Hubby thought Anneliese had eaten hers too fast, which she did. Normally I don’t worry, but right after that she went down. By that I mean, she lay down and started to act sick.
I started to worry that she had swallowed the rawhide too fast, and so began my day of worry and concern. I watched her like a hawk, hoping she would vomit. By early afternoon she had not vomited, nor had she eaten anything. So, I made her my remedy for ailing dogs. Baby rice cereal, with warm water.
She ate hungrily, and then lay back down. I was worried. About dinner time, I took her outside and she did her business, but then she lay in the snow, and I had to go outside and carry her in.
Okay, I got even more worried. I brought her in, and then got ready to bed. I’d been cuddled up in bed with her for about an hour when she cried, crawled closer and wee-weed on me and the bed!
So, at 11:15 PM I was changing sheets, mattress pads, and blankets. I also got out the crate, put Anneliese’s bed in it, and we were back in bed by 11:45.
The next morning, Liese was still not doing well. I was so worried that she had a blockage that I called the Veterinarian. They told me to bring her right in.
I told Hubby I was going, and he quickly dressed so he could drive us. The roads here are still not the best.
The Vet examined her, and low and behold it had nothing to do with the little bones, but with the fact that she lives with a clumsy German Shepherd, who more than likely stepped on her shoulder.
Anneliese is now on meds to help the inflammation and pain. She is now asleep in her bed, and does seem more comfortable.
Okay, now, while that was going on and once I settled Anneliese, I gathered up the heavy blankets and comforters, from our bed and went to the laundromat. I was feeling tired and just wanted to cry. The Owner of the shop helped me get my stuff in, and then while it washed off I went to get the mail.
That’s when I got a text message from my cousin that my Facebook account had been hacked. Once I got home, I changed my password and locked down my account.
Just then I figured that nothing more could go wrong, and I was putting dishes away and I slammed my finger into a cabinet door and broke the nail right down to the quick! Oh, the pain!
About this time, I thought perhaps I needed to go and hide somewhere! This was just not my day.
Then Mandy called me and told me that Savannah pulled herself up to a standing position for the first time today!! Wow! Seriously. This piece of news just made my day!
Just look at that big girl!!!
