Pretty much this ^^

Anything suggesting I have something good in my hands and Jubel wants it, or at least to see what I have.

Came home to a Brooks poopsplosion in his crate because he apparently has diarrhea. I expect this when he gets too much raw food, but he's been eating nothing but kibble. Not even any treats. I did bump up his food a bit because while I like my dogs on the thinner side, he was a bit too ribby. So perhaps he got too much food. Who knows. All I know is instead of taking him to run off his energy at the dog park before I picked up the kiddo from daycare, I bathed and dried a Poodle.

To top it off, he's decided to bump up his coat change, so I had to detangle some sort of ridiculous ear tangle.

Crate poosplosion #3 for today. Sigh.

I have no idea what's set off his intestines. He had an extended bout of yard time leading up to bedtime, so hopefully I don't have a crate cleanup at 3 am. I wish he'd give some sort of vocalization before he explodes all over his crate. Instead he generally ( when ill) poops and THEN whines

He was dehydrated so got some fluids and that definitely helped. Basically we're thinking he's got a bad bug, probably viral, and just needs help getting through it. They did do some bloodwork and a fecal that we'll hear about tomorrow.

Poor little spaniel man.
I just saw this, I hope he's feeling better by now and it's nothing serious because that's scary. You especially don't need another blockage surgery happening.

Mu is such an awesome dog. We went on a lovely long hike today, just the two of us. She was so well behaved and did great with the people and dogs we saw. I just....I freaking love her. And I'm really glad I finally managed some one on one time out of the house.

Ollie is feeling much better, thanks for the thoughts! His bloodwork and fecal indicated a virus (or rather... didn't indicate a parasite or bacterial infection). He is running at probably 90% power right now, which is plenty. LOL. A little skinny but eating and drinking well, and keeping everything down. Back to being a nut.

We finally got our skid boots for Talon in! Since it took so long (the lady had a lot of expo's or events so I think she forgot about them) she gave us a rabbit fur tug, which Artimis is in love with.

We put on Talon's boots today and took them to the dog park since we were out that way anyways. They stayed on, looked good, and so hopefully they worked. We won't know until tomorrow though if they did what we wanted them to do!

Also, Talon was such a good boy at the dog park! This one dog was all over way too rough with both Talon and Artimis (not friendly play either, but not killer). It was fine until Art got excited and mounted a little white Jack Russel (Art does that when he get's excited and wants to play) and then it went a bit nuts and was all over Art growling and posturing. The owner was on it immediately, but when she let him go again it was all over Talon. I don't know why it didn't like our dogs, but the owner immediately said that it wasn't behaving so no dog park. Good owner! ^_^ She was very nice and very responsible IMO. I think the dog was just in an adolescent phase, as it seemed to just be testing the waters to see if it could get away with bullying.

So yay, good trip to the dog park! ^_^


Otherwise, Talon was a butt today.

No one will ever be as happy to see me as these dogs when, in between being let outside and back inside by my husband while I am sleeping in, I have gotten up and have "magically" appeared on the couch.

Happy tail. It looks like I've murdered someone in here.
