Bad day!

I sure scared Mom yesterday. For some crazy reason, I just could not drink enough water yesterday. By the time Mom realized what I was doing, my tummy looked like I was about to give birth!! I also became very confused and started running into walls. So off I went to see Dr. Bill. They took blood, urine, did xrays and made me throw up all of that water and my breakfast too. I spent the day with Dr. Bill, but Mom insisted I came home last night to be with her. I know she was very worried that my kidneys might be failing and she might have to let me go to the Bridge. When I got home, all I wanted to do was lay by my water bowl, waiting for Mom to give me the little bit of water I was allowed each hour. I didn't have any interest in eating or sleeping in my usual place next to Mom's bed. Finally Mom feel asleep about midnight. When she awoke early this morning, there I was with my kitties Smudge and Sissel, laying next to her bed, cleaning them like I often do. She put some water out for me, and much to her happiness, drank just enough to quench my natural thirst--and no more!! I ate breakfast and wasn't disoriented anymore. She did get a phone call from Dr. Bill and the labs did show that my kidneys were not working perfect, but not too bad for a dog my age. I feel much better and don't know why I did what I did yesterday, and Mom hopes I never do it again. I will be going on a "renal diet" to see if that will help my kidney labs improve. Mom knows everyday with a senior dog like me is a blessing.
We will be going to the cabin in a couple of weeks so we can watch the Winter Olympics in a real winter atmosphere. Wesley and I can hardly wait to play in that white stuff called snow!
