if you're seeing this post well this means that I am too busy cleaning up after this one to post :(

River took sick yesterday and despite having projects to post I just haven't gotten around to the whole photographing, resizing, uploading etc. I had planned on doing it Friday but ended up permanently attached to the wet vac, carpet cleaner and paper towels. Plus just when I thought it couldn't get any worse she got diarrhea too!

We've been through this the past two years with River. It's obviously seasonal as it's always Jan/Feb time (and I remember cos I almost canceled my CHA trip last year). The first time it happened we took her to the vet and it was 8 days till she was better. Did I mention she didn't eat during that time? And barely drank water! Yeah I worry!

Yesterday was day 1 of the puking, pooping and refusing food. All my family will be like "OMG River refused food!!!!", yes she does when she's sick. You can see she wants it, but knows she'll throw it up so doesn't bother taking it. Smart girl! Wish me luck for the weekend that she gets better quick. Otherwise I may have to take out shares in Bounty kitchen towels!


ps. The photo's were taken last year, she looks even more depressed than usual right now :)

Poor River. Hope she's better soon Di.

My Maisy goes through stages like that - normally for a few days after we worm her, so every 3 months! YAY, I wormed her this morning!!!!!

We'll be puke picking together! ;-)

I'm sorry River is sick. My last dog used to get sick a lot too. One of the vets told me to feed her yogurt and it worked. Maybe should could see if he could eat yogurt. The pup I have now LOVES yogurt!!!
