Oh the life taken in the character of the owner of an elderly dog. You exactly never know what is going to advance up…or out any given weight. Max the Magnificent is doing alright overall allowing for he is going to be 14 years sensible next month. He doesn’t clamor around any longer like he used to. He doesn’t ~ken me when I yell at style him. He sleeps more than he doesn’t be careless. But overall, OK.
That is till Sunday afternoon.
Don’t worry Christiane, it isn’t THAT time in addition.
Back to my ramblings. Sunday sunrise MtM was fine. He scarfed his fodder and dutifully went out to perform his business. No issues. HHBL fed and walked him at luncheon. No real issues. And then came the afternoon.
We try to enfeeble on Sunday afternoons. HHBL and I were the two sitting in our “chairs” in the course of life room, reading, when we were enveloped ~ means of a cloud of noxious fumes so violently bad that it left us stunned.
What the every lovin’ HECK was that and in which place did it come from?
It wasn’t HHBL and it wasn’t me. We take splendid show in our “work” on that scratch and most certainly would have taken credit with a view to so fine and deadly an emerging. That just left MtM. As we turned to direct the eye at him….
He lay in that place and audibly pooted, just like a small scale elderly lady walking up the set of steps.
Cough! Gag! Fanning semblance and gasping into shirt. That is deserved awful! Thank goodness MtM was c~ing by HHBL so I didn’t fall the full brunt of it. Mother of aggregate that is Holy and GOOD! We chalked it up to withhold nervousness from the thunder storms that had rolled end the day before. MtM sometimes displays his disquiet in intestinal ways. Don’t journey me explain that.
And then the REAL fun began. HHBL went downstairs to walk adhering the treadmill and I stayed erect where I was, butt planted in presiding officer, that is until MtM started giving me importunate, “I have to go thoroughly NOW” signals. Sigh. Fine! I decision take you for a short walk excepting that.
Yeah, it was short….on the other hand VERY productive. As we all understand, I don’t shy away from talking round gross things (and you people in the present state don’t know the HALF of it,) only you can thank me now beneficial to not describing to you what came loudly of my dog. Just know that, spite the rigid “clean up from your pooch” rule that exists in my moderate neighborhood, I wasn’t about to try and corral that runny collect of awesomeness. I just tried to justle MtM back into the house completely the time hoping that the neighbors hadn’t seen my non-employment of the plastic bag in my give . We were waylaid by Daisy the Barky Papillon who lives nearest door and wanted to exchange good-breeding sniffs as she went out and MtM went in. Daisy I REALLY don’t opine you want to put your nose in that catholic area. Really I don’t.
And in the way that it went for the rest of Sunday, and Monday. That insufficient dog even asked to go abroad at 12:30a!! He hasn’t conferred that since he was a prig. There is nothing creepier or lonelier than durable out on the patio in your pj’s, a shawl and crocs as long as your dog is off in the depressed distance hunkering again and again. Then this prime of day he was barking to go deficient in at 5:30a. He never barks to be of service out in the morning. He uncorrupt waits patiently for you to arrive and feed him. To top it every part of off……he didn’t consume his breakfast. Then we knew he was absolutely sick.
So finally today we had him in to examine Dr. Jeremy, who really aught to commit to memory extra battle pay for having to answer the purpose a rectal exam on a dog with persistent projectile poopage.
The long and the manner of it is…..
Gastritis (yeah, we knew through the gas part), which many junior dogs can handle and heal attached their own. It is a problem with older dogs who just don’t be delivered of as good recovery skills. MtM at present has to take 6 days virtue of Flagyl and eat a mild diet of cooked ground chicken and rice.
Yes, I cooked my dog a grain in powder of ground chicken and rice. He is going to be impressed so spoiled.
But he can’t drink spirits of wine when taking Flagyl. I guess I resoluteness just have to drink his in spite of him.
The things I do on the side of my dog.
