The gas coming out of my dog needs to stop.

I don't know what she ate but there has been vomit, loose stool, and this death gas.

And then in situations like this it always occurs to me that, probably, most people would bring their dog to the vet for this. And I'm just like... meh. She's fine. I contemplated fasting her tonight but then we came home from our walk and she pranced around the kitchen and was all DINNER TIME NOW YES? How am I supposed to say no to that.

I think the nice thing about working in the field is that you know what is, "Meh, this will clear up" vomit and diarrhea, and what is, "Wow, something really isn't right" vomit and diarrhea.

Doesn't make the vomit and diarrhea any less enjoyable. LOL

Hahaha yeah probably. I'd be more concerned if she were turning down food, or lethargic. But nope, she doesn't seem too bothered by her upset tummy lol.

Yea, at least once a day I say to one of my co-workers, "Our clients make me feel like the worst pet owner in the world" because every time something happens I'm all... vomit, eh. Limp, eh. Giant bleeding wound, eh.

Ate an entire chocolate cake? Meh. Ate chicken bones? Meh. Swallowed a sock whole? Meh, unless it doesn't come up or out by tomorrow.

My musing/vent: I feel so sorry for Abrams. This past week he has literally be stuck in a crate all day and night except for maybe an hour or two in the morning, and two or three hours at night. He is going bonkers, but I have literally NO time to do anything with him. Thank God he's food motivated and likes his puzzle toys/bones, or I'd really be screwed. Really hoping next week I'll be able to actually spend time with him.

Sometimes I worry that's going to get me one day. "He threw up AND had diarrhea all over his crate? Well, will he chase the ball? Then he's fine."

One day he totally won't be fine but he'll still chase the ball and it will bite me in the butt, I just know it. But I legit can't afford to be as paranoid as I'd actually like to be. =P

See. Then we can all watch him/her grow up and not be sad when he/she leaves like Cookie did!

Travel-sized Flatcoats need to be a thing. Though after watching a Boykin try to haul a full size drake around the other week, it's pretty clear how a 50+ lb dog has its advantages.
Obviously the solution is to send me a boy mirapup to love and raise.

This is a logical solution. Just do it.
