Well, I spent 2 whole days in that scary building, but am finally back home. It's been over a week and I'm feeling much better. Mommy gives me little white round things that make the icky go away. It's my favorite part of the day because they're slathered in peanut butter!!

Too bad my dumb brother got sick too, because I have to share the peanut butter with him.

I'm feeling SSOOOO much better that I decided to have some fun with the matress again! But I got caught red-pawed this time! Apparently mommy had tried to put a patch over the hole Tucker and I dug in the bed. I didn't think it looked right, so I decided to 'fix it up' a little. Mommy walked in right when I was just getting to the good squishy stuff and scolded me. But, I'm so clever, I pulled the ole 'look at how cute I am' trick on her and I think she forgot about what I had done.

Mommy keeps the door shut to the room with the bed now so we can't sneak in and have fun anymore....drat!!!

 

Sick Little Girl

Today I am very sad. I am all alone in a strange, scary place. Yesterday everything was going great. I beat up my little brother all day long...it was fun! Then, after mommy came home from work I started feeling icky. This strange red stuff kept coming out when I tried to make poody. My mommy saw this right away and wrapped me up in a soft fuzzy blanky and took me for a ride.

Once I realized where we were going, I got really scared and started to shake. I hate that place with the other dogs...it's so smelly, but my mommy cuddled me and said everything would be ok. So I listened to her and quit shaking. Those strange people in the white jackets did mean things to me last night. I was SO relieved when mommy said it was time to go home. She even had some medicine to take home too. Mommy said something about me having 'colitis', just like her.

After we got home I tried my best to go to sleep, but I kept having that red icky stuff every 45 minutes or so. It was awful. It hurt really bad to try to make poody. Plus, I know it was hard for mommy because she got up with me every time all night long. Then in the middle of the night I started throwing up. I could tell mommy was really scared. She didn't sleep a wink.

Mommy called that scary place when they opened at 6:30 in the morning. They told her to bring me back immediately, that they better test me for Parvo...whatever that is. I wasn't as scared this time because daddy found his way home much earlier than normal and went to the scary building with us. He cuddled me the entire time and kept me warm.

But now I'm really scared because mommy and daddy LEFT me with the mean people!! Why would they do that?????!!!!!! I heard the scary people talking on the phone to my mommy though a little while ago. They said that the 'tests' all came back fine and that the silly pictures they took of me showed I had an empty tummy. They poked me with an ouchy too, supposedly it's giving me a drink....I do feel a little better though after that.

I'm just worried mommy and daddy won't come back. They won't leave me here forever will they? Naaaahhhhh....they wouldn't dare do THAT. I'm far too cute and I know it.

I'll write some more when I get back to my snuggly bed and dumb brother. Wish me luck!

 

What's So Wrong With a 3:45am Potty Trip???

This morning I was SSOOO proud of myself! I woke up from my snuggly spot on the bed before I had an accident. I guess mommy heard me moving around because she followed me to the front door and asked if I 'needed to take care of business'. She was acting funny though, kinda stumbling around and her eyes weren't open very much.

Well anyway, she took me out for a potty. She said I was lucky that it was unseasonably warm at 3:45 in the morning...a whopping 50 degrees!!! I made sure I was a good girl and made potty very quickly. I could tell mommy wanted to snuggle in the bed with me again....right away!!
