Update on Maggie: 14th February

Thank you all for your kind thoughts and good wishes. Our baby seems to be doing OK but we are still being vigilant.
We took it in turns to watch Maggie through the night as she was restless and wanting to go out all the time though not actually do anything, so our nerves were stretched almost to breaking point.
She has never been ‘dirty’ indoors unless it was totally unavoidable or we weren’t quick enough getting to the door to let her out.
She finally seemed to settle around 1.30am, so I took over and Hubby went to bed to try and get some sleep. He was exhausted.
She got me up at 3.15, so I let her out and left her outside to do whatever she wanted to do. Luckily it wasn’t tipping down with rain, and I watched from the window as she made her way along the fence perimeter eating grass.
She came in around 3.30 and settled down again, not moving until 6.45 so I was immediately up to see to her and let her out.

More grass eating and checking out the garden to decide where to do her business.
She’s passed two motions this morning, one half and half in colour and the other black as expected from the charcoal. From what Hubby’s read, once the charcoal has passed through her, it takes any impurities with it.
She’s eating and drinking normally, but feeling very sorry for herself, so we are having a quiet day with only short walks to let all of us recover from the stress of yesterday.

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 an elderly dog called Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. 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.

  1. My warmest wishes for you and Miss Maggie. It’s so stressful to watch them when they are ill, particularly because they can’t tell us what is wrong, only show us. Take care of you and your family today. ❤ Happy Valentines Day!
