Way behind

Well, the lady is watching everything I do, my poop, my eating, my sleeping, my walking, she seems to be worried that I am still not feeling better. I keep telling her I am fine woman, leave me alone, and could you stop shoving those pills down my throat? No, darn it....

My blood work shows better, so that is some good news.

Now these pictures are really late, but Reilly got to encounter an ice day. He was begging not to have to go out.

Then he ventured further onto the deck.

Then finally he went and peed. It took forever!

Mr. Fancy Pants doesn't like getting his pitty pat paws cold. Next time we'll show you what it looked like when the ice melted.

Feeling Better and Back Home Again!

The lady finally busted me outta that darn vet hospital. Was I ever glad to get home. I ran right to my favorite sleeping place and took a nice long nap, without a stupid IV in my leg. I do feel better, no more bad poop, and I am eating again. I even like my special low fat diet, yum, that food is so good I snaarf it up so fast.

Reilly said he missed me, even though he got to go to Mischa's house every day to play.

Well, gotta go, Mom's got my treat ready for me, it's a snap pea, man I love those snap peas...

Hey, good terr-vibes to Bogart's dad Klaus, to Poppy for her throat and Snickers, we want the seizure monster to GO AWAY!

I've hijacked Murphey's blog to explain where we have been and why we haven't been blogging. Murphey had been acting lethargic, not eating too well, and he even attacked Reilly a few weeks ago. All this seemed unusual but the vet couldn't find anything wrong. Then he started really not eating, and when the vomiting and diarrhea started we rushed back to the vet and found out he had Pancreatitis. That required a few nights stay at the vet hospital and now he (and Reilly) are going to be on a low fat diet. The hope is that this is just a one time acute attack, but diet and monitoring will become a regular part of life around here. I just want my little guy to feel better soon.

Oh, and Reilly hates the food, but since I have a hard time keeping them out of each others bowls, the same food for both. Strangely enough, Mini Schnauzers that are over weight (Reilly) are more prone to pancreatitis so the diet is a good idea for him too.

We promise to catch up and start blogging again soon, but for right now I am too busy taking care of my sick pup.
