The last couple weeks have brought several new challenges. While trying to cope with the loss of Gracie to a brain tumor, we had some other health issues to deal with. Sebastian was having a vomiting problem and couldn't keep anything down for awhile. He's now eating only rice and sweet potato for breakfast and rice, sweet potato and half a pork chop for dinner. So far he's only had one day of vomiting. If we can make it thru three weeks of this, we can start adding in some other foods very carefully, one at a time. He seems quite happy with his special diet and doesn't appear to have lost much weight.
Noah has started having fainting spells, which scare the heck out of me. They only have happened, so far, first thing in the morning on our early outing. If he eats grass, he then vomits and faints. It only lasts seconds, then he jumps up and runs to me. I've been giving him Reglan at bedtime and again in the morning, then I take him out on leash so he can't eat any grass. The vet and I have discussed it but unless it gets more frequent or lasts longer, we'll just stay with this routine.
Fudge hasn't been acting like his normal, silly self. I know his leg bothers him from his stroke last year. He's stiff when he first gets up and limps a bit in the evenings. He gets tired around nine each night and climbs up next to me to snooze till it's bedtime. I'm sure most of this is age related which makes me very sad, but we've all been thru it.
Still, summer with it's heat arrived a couple days ago and so we decided to make everyone happy with water. We set up a revolving sprinkler which at first was pretty popular, but then they didn't like it sneaking up behind them, so we solved that by setting the sprinkler in the pool. They agreed that was an excellent idea.
