Recently, I have been dealing with little Dot's tummy troubles. Somedays she is fine, actually, most days she is totally fine, it is a night that she has the tummy troubles. No, she is not sick...just has to wake up in the middle of the night multiple times to eat grass, go potty or poo. With that being said, I have not been getting a whole lot of sleep - because she usually wakes me up. So we made an appointment to see her vet. Everything went great, her vitals were good, blood and stool tested out great...as we were heading home, we came around "the corner"...the corner where we narrowly missed being badly injured by a a woman driving recklessly. Right in front of us, she ricocheted off of the northbound lane hillside and was coming straight at us - in our lane...This, all in a blink of an eye. Thank goodness no one was behind her, because I swerved into that oncoming lane to narrowly (and I mean narrowly) miss what could have been a horrible collision. This all took place only moments after we had to say goodbye to our beautiful Gromit. I burst into tears... Yes, it has been that kind of year! Dot looked at me with her little curious eyes, I told her it was going to be OK and that I missed him so very much.
It has bee a strange, busy, slow, weird kind of year. Not sure anyone else is experiencing that...but it has been weird!
Back to Dot...Doc recommended we switch her off of her kibble and to either canned or raw. I chose raw, it doesn't stink like the canned stuff does. Anyway, that seems to be helping quite a bit. I personally think that the biggest problem is that she is so low to the ground that she eats everything she can get stuff in her little Dot face and most of that does not agree with her tummy. Oh what to do?
Little nugget is driving me nuts! But she is so stinkin' cute!
