Holiday Giving

My dogs always give Rob a Christmas gift that I help them pick out and wrap. This year apparently they chose to give me a gift that I'd like to return.
On Thursday night Morgan got me up twice to go outside. All day Friday she seemed fine. Then Friday night we were up every hour. She had awful diarrhea. Saturday morning I took her temperature and she was running a fever. Off to see the doc who checked her all over and gave us some medicine. When we got home she fell asleep and didn't move all day.

Meanwhile Norma Jean vomited. While Rob was mopping up, she did it again, and again and again. She also started having diarrhea. Oh boy! The clinic was closed by now so I shot off an email to Dr B, who got right back to me and advised how to treat Norma Jean.

Fast forward to Monday. Norma Jean was feeling great and wanted to run and play but mean Mom was restricting her for one more day. Morgan was still on meds and special diet, but around 8 in the evening, she informed me that she was hungry. So I fed her. She ate a full meal and slept well. But, (there's always a but) during the night Bailey woke me twice to go outside. It was too dark to see much, but I'm sure she was having some poop issues.

This morning Morgan is back to normal, eating well and having good stools. Norma Jean is fine. Bailey ate but I'm watching her closely. Dr B called to see how everyone was doing. He feels the younger dogs will shake it off in about 24 hours but Morgan needs to be watched.

I really didn't expect a Christmas present from them and I hope it ends with Bailey.

Oh, we hope it ends with Bailey and the crew are back to health very quickly.

The generosity of the pack, passing around a stomach bug so you have something to do besides sleep for the next week or so. I hope it stops with Bailey, so you aren't fatigued beyond belief!

Oh dear, if it's not one, it's the other... I hope all are on the mend. Zeus is having "sloppy pudding" poops but I am attributing that to his new diet of 95% canned food, because other than that he's bright, cheery and ready to eat! We've got to get him by the vet to get on the scale soon though.. .and make sure he's not loosing weight.
Lola, on the other hand, has been limping since last Thursday... seems to be her right shoulder and we're hoping it's just a sprain that will heal itself... watching closely.

Yuck. That's not a gift at all. We hope all are well and you have caught a break.
