Hullo. My Name's Burt...

Today I Didn't

eat. I had really bad poopies this morning, so that's probably why I couldn't even be tempted by a dollop of my fav, liver sausage. The Mom thinks it's stress-related...

Yesterday, Dixie went to the Groomer's. By herself. The Dad tried to hold me back, but when I heard Dixie and the Mom going out the back door without me, I broke free and tore after them. The Dad pretty much had to tackle me at the top of the stairs to keep me from running out after them.

When the Dad finally let me outside, I ran all around the yard looking for Dixie. I kept running to the garage door. The Dad finally got me to come inside, but let me tell you, I was a wreck until Dixie came back home in the afternoon.

So, this morning I had the poopies. And wouldn't eat breakfast. Or lunch. Or liver sausage. Or even some of the Mom's pizza! The Dad is going to make me some chicken breast for dinner. The Mom had to go to work at the newspaper and is a wreck over having to leave me with the Dad. She told the Dad if I start pacing, drooling and dry-heaving it's to the Emergency Vets ASAP! But I just think I'm reacting to yesterday's change in my routine. Dixie is MY touchstone. She needs to be HERE for me!!! 24/7! Right?

You poor pup! Tell your Mom to add a spoonful of 100% pumpkin to you food. It always helps me.

Aw Burt, I'm so sorry you got so upset and that your tummy is such a mess. I can totally relate! Hope you're feeling better really soon. I'm sure your dad will take very good care of you. But you know how the moms are--they worry that no one can take care of us better than them!

I'd love to add pumpkin, Wrinkles, but as Ella wrote there is a shortage of pumpkin nationwide because of a bad crop last fall. ALL the stores around Chicago are out of pumpkin and have none in the warehouse. :( I used to get pumpkin every meal... Thanks for barkin' in.

Woofs, wags and poops,
Your buddy Burt

We all love you Sweetie..and its so hard to help you understand that you are safe. Maybeeee when you get over this..Mum and Dad can try the ''no Dixie'' for 10 mins a day .. then the next week a little longer.... and so on... always making it a positive happening...

Not eating ANYTHING is good till your tummy settles.

BIG HUGSSS for you

P.S. Lucas didnt like it when for the 1st time ever he was parted from Flicka when Flicka did his CGC classes. He didnt panic.. but he didnt like it..... he DID get used to it over the weeks though... so maybe .......
