My scary emergency vet trip!

Ooooh last night was BAD!

Mommy and Daddy went out for dinner, they were gone for about an hour and a half. While they were gone, I was in my play pen.

When they got back I was being my usualy self - happy and crazy and clumsy. But Mommy noticed my belly looked big - I mean REALLY big! So she showed Daddy and he agreed that wasn't right.

My whole tummy looked swollen. Especially on the sides, if you looked at me from above. So (after a post on Dogster, BOL) we headed STRAIGHT to the emergency vet. Mom was scared I had BLOAT!

It was scary there! There were all sorts of sick and injured puppies and everyone seemed upset. Mommy was crying but Daddy kept telling her it was OK.

I got to see the vet lady, and she sure was nice! But she took my temperature again and GRRR I don't like that!

I had to have x-rays done on my big tummy. They said for sure my stomach wasn't twisted, but that I could still be experiencing bloat to a less serious extent.

The vet then gave me an injection to make me throw up. I threw up a LOT of food and water! I was really woozy, but I finally got to see my Mom and Dad again.

The vet told my Mommy it was definitely a good idea that she brought me in - she said that abdominal swelling and the like is ALWAYS serious, so it's important to have it looked at.

I'm home now, and I feel MUCH better! But I don't want to go back to the vet for a while....


My first trip to the Vet!

Well... I went to the vet today. I don't know what the big deal is... she's not scary! All the girls working in the office were in love with me and couldn't stop petting me. Mom thought they were gonna want to keep me - BOL!

I really didn't like it when they took my temperature. It wasn't orally, if ya know what I'm saying. I crued and cried! Thank GOODNESS it was fast! Then after I got treats, MMMM!

I heard them say I got a "shot" but I don't remember it. The vet lady dropped treats all over the table and I was wolfing them down when it happened. Perhaps I was a little distracted...

Well I got a CLEAN bill of health and a really cool puppy pack! The vets are so nice... I can't wait to go back in a month. Arooo!


My first night at my new home!!!

Well folks, yesterday was the day. I left my mama and my remaining siblings and came to my FOREVER home!

My mom says I'm such a good little puppy. I didn't cry or whine a lot yesterday, which is what mom is used to out of new puppies. But I had my big brother Harley - and he's just great! He makes me forget all about my fur mama and my other brothers and sisters.

I like to chew on his tail, though, and he isn't a fan of that. I don't understand why not... he called my a brat!

I have been in my new home for 17 hours, and I haven't had ONE accident. Mom watches me like a hawk and takes me out ALL the time... and the second my little feet hit the grass, I'll pee! She's so proud of me!

She was scared that last night was going to be a challenge. She took my puppy blanket and made a spot for me on her bed, right next to her head. She DID tell me that someone named "Dad" usually sleeps there, but he's out of town. She said he'll be back today though, so I'm excited!

So I was curled up right beside Mom's head, and Harley was noodled up under the blankets somewhere. I slept really good! I woke up every 3 hours or so, and mom would take me out, I'd pee, and back to bed we'd go.

She said she was sooo proud of me that I slept so much and didn't whine. But I was soooo tired from playing with my big brother all evening!

Anyway though, I've gotta go chase my brother's tail around... I'll write more soon!
