They say you get all the sleep you need when you die.. mom says she would like to have a little now please! I have been driving mom crazy with my night time sleeping .. i sleep for only about 2 hours .. than go wake her up .. mom tries ignoring me , and sometimes i will go lay down for another few minutes but if my eyes are open i want someone up with me. Lately i have been having belly aches one after another .. but even if it isn't gastritis i just want someone up .. and mom always gets up with me.. by Friday evening though mom has had it with no sleep and she will get dad to take a turn and she will up upstairs and try to sleep . I am fine during the day ( most of the time ) .. but nights are terrible. Mom is trying to figure out why all of a sudden i am having such belly aches at night .. so far no real good answers.. she used to feed me a small snack before bed time with my heart meds .. but she has tried the last 3 nights not giving me a snack but just the meds and it is a little better.. i am still waking up .. but at least not sick.( not feeling really great but not in pain sick ) Mom has never had a pup with such terrible stomach issues and she says it is exhausting.. the doctors really don't have any answers either .. they say it is just gastritis .. mom says .. they should spend one week at our house and they would be singing a different tune. My diet is bland .. nothing to cause gas, i take zantac , baby gasx on a regular bases and thats about all they can suggest. Mom is thinking about getting me an appointment with a homeopathic vet to see if they may have other suggestions. Mom thinks a lot of it is probably caused from all the meds i am on for my heart , the abdominal surgery i had that no ones knows anything about , my kidneys not working 100% , old age and on and on .. well since i have finally settled down mom better go and try to get back to sleep !

Sleepless in Millersville,
Buttercup & Mom

sssssssssssoooooooooooo sorry to hear this Buttercup.
Gma says, your Mom is probably right...The meds.,
your age and your multiple health issues. All of our elderly furs had several different health issues the last several years of their lives. If you have access to homeopathic Fur Doc.

I'd try that! We don't have access to those things here.
We read and hear all the time of what wonderful things they
can do. You don't look like a Senior pup to us! You look Pawtastic!

Moms need there sleepies........since they usually don't nap like us furs..... we will keep you in our prayers...hugs,mazy

Mom has been reading up about coconut oil and you might want to check on that. Sending lots of hugs for you and momma and we think a homeopathic doctor would be wonderful.
