Well, I was all ready to write another Happy Doggy Post today since Snowy ate his new food great last night and was bouncing around the house like a frisky puppy.
This morning? Not so much. He took one tiny nibble of his breakfast portion and then stopped eating. He seemed fairly peppy for a while but he’s sleeping beside me now.
I guess I’ll give him three or four hours to see if he decides to start eating again and then make another Vet Call to see what we need to do.
I think it’s incredibly dear that so many people have been checking in on him over the past few days. It makes my heart happy to know that we aren’t the only people who love this sweet doggy. You can see by the stat counter that the past two days have seen a big increase in page views from the normal traffic pattern. I think we have a celebrity on our hands!
Of course, he’s not such a big celebrity that he’s too important to assist with jobs around the house—like helping his mom and sister wrap Christmas presents. He was right there in the middle of everything last night--he’s a “paws on” pup!
In the midst of all the wrapping, he took a few moments to have a heart-to-heart talk with his Sis and tell her all about his recent hospital stay. The two of them are Hospital Buds from way back.
They discussed IV’s and X-rays . . .
. . . and surgeries and doctors.
And finally, when Snowy had gotten all of his burdens off his (cute, white) chest he said, “Whew! I feel so much better now!”
These are a couple packages that he “helped” me wrap. What would I do without him?
In other Smith Male News, Steve was violently sick all through the night--vomiting, diarrhea, chills, sweats, etc. In fact, he came very close to passing out once.
So today I shall be his designated nurse/brow soother/bucket emptier and also Snowy’s designated nurse/pill giver/vet caller.
Gotta take care of my men!
