....up until 2 weeks ago. Peachy, my sister, is a "sugar baby"(diabetic doggy) and don't have no eyes so she's the one we're always watching for
illness or complications. That's why we wus all surprised when I came down
wif' a bad stomach infection.
Mimi always takes us on our supervised walk-abouts twice a day....we're talking CLOSE SUPERVISION 'cause our neighborhood is not the nicest in town. A couple of weeks ago I was foraging around in a neighboring yard when Mimi suddenly scooped me up and away from my little tasty tidbits.. Well, the old gal suspects all our neighbors are either cooking meth or stealin' stuff to buy meth. She don't trust nobody, especially after her computer and wireless were stolen. Sure enough I got a tummy ache 2 days later. The vet sez I ate something very bad. Mimi swears one of the gangsters in the hood put out some poisoned food for any little petster unaware.
I'm taking a bunch of medicine for 15 days now and 3 trips to the vet. I threw up a bunch of blood clots the other night but have had no recurrence. I mostly feel bad in the mornings until my Rimadyl kicks in. Mimi worries it's takin' me too long to get well....the vet sez "it's gonna take a while." Good news is that I'm eating some, no further GI bleed and no sign of kidney damage.
She hopes my story here will help yur momsters and popsters to be ever vigilant when yur pets are outside so dat yoo don't get into something dat might hurt you. It can happen in yur neighborhood (good or bad). It can happen round yur house....antifreeze, toxic plants and foodies dropped on the floor. Mimi sez...this should not happen to any of you. Of course, she feels guilty, cause she didn't come over and investigate sooner.
We wants to thank everbody fur their prayers, healing thoughts, bones, posts, emails, prezzies and most of all fur keeping us in your hearts and prayers. I didn't know I had so many friends. Yoo are the BEST!
