E- ew! Don’t read if squeamish.

Oh dear. Glad I didn’t ignore her.

Maggie got me up at 6, did the business and we came back to bed.
A little while ago, she got me up again, and usually I would take my time before letting her out. However, although she wasn’t actually pacing or agitated, the way she presented herself in front of me had me getting up immediately to let her out.

Oh boy. Am I glad I did.
Our girl isn’t well as what she is passing is a stinking liquid, and it’s bright yellow.
It could be she has oversniffed and picked something up from the grass.
Or she’s been cleaning her feet and picked something up that way.
Or she’s eaten something that’s disagreed with her.

Both of us noticed she was stiff in her joints yesterday so I gave her a small dose of metacam. That doesn’t usually result in this, just makes her dopey which ensures she has a good night’s sleep.

I’m going through what she had to eat yesterday, and nothing springs to mind except maybe too many biscuits, or both of us gave her a stick chew. The colour of her motions could suggest that.
Other than her dinner and scrambled egg for breakfast, she didn’t have anything unusual or different.

I was going to do chops and roast dinner today but will modify that to pineapple and ginger pork with rice. Rice will help her tummy and hopefully things will settle down again. No treats for a couple of days.
She’s fast asleep with her babies at the moment, though I’ve left the back gate open in case she needs to go out quickly.

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have recently lost our beloved dog Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney, and now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of my GSD so had hers done too. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

    Poor Maggie. Hope she’s feeling better in a jiff.

    • She’s a bit whingey because she’s had no biscuits, but she’s eaten her breakfast OK. Her nose is nice and cold and her eyes bright, so we’ll just have a lazy day today. She seems quite content to sleep.

    Aw poor little puppy. I hope she’s doing better today.

    • She’s doing OK Fandango. Breakfast and two lots of rice polished off. There’s another portion for later and she’s eaten some of her regular food. She’s not too impressed at not being off lead though, and biscuits are definitely missed!
