Freddie wasn't feeling good yesterday. I knew it was going to happen and was just waiting for it 'cause Sunday he'd been eating crud out of the garden. Then when he wouldn't eat his supper Sunday night, I knew for sure it was going to be a long night. Fred is very vocal about things and when he's sick it is no different. He just whines.....a lot. Was I surprised when I had to take him out at 3:00 a.m. to go potty. No. His stomach had been squeaking all night and he was whining and couldn't get comfortable. And there's nothing worse than when your outside in the dark while your dog is going potty and all you can hear are those squeaky squirting noises coming out of his butt! Yes, it was going to be a long night!
So this is how Fred spent most of Monday.
Whining........ "Ughhhhhhh.....my tummy hurts! Momma do something!"
I did feel really bad for him, he really didn't look good. The first thing I had to do was try and get him to eat something, 'cause now he's missed two meals and it just makes his stomach worse. So I tempted him with some cheese which he wouldn't take at first until he saw Gloria was going to take it. Once he ate a few small pieces, I gave him some Pepto Bismol.
Then he went back laying and whining. He just has to be so darn dramatic about it! Geesh!
It was so nice when he finally fell asleep and the whining stopped. Whew! That's enough to drive you batty!
By the afternoon I knew he was feeling better when he followed his nose out to the kitchen to see what I was cooking. So I gave him his kibble and he ate it right down. Now I could finally quit worrying!
Hmmm.....maybe he planned the whole thing to keep my mind off of Barney....nah!
