Life is good

This morning Sadie bounced right out of bed as though she had never been sick. I'll never know for sure what was wrong with her: Did she get into poison or antifreeze at a neighbor's? She doesn't go far from home, but I have seen her on the property next door. Did she swallow too big a piece of the horse-hooves that she's always chewing on and pierce something internally? Of course everybody knows what a Googler I am (only now I use Swagbucks because I get free stuff from them). Symptoms of HGE seem to describe how Sadie acted. But who knows? I'm just thankful she made it!
She hasn't touched her dog food, but I think that's because she's holding out for chicken. Guess what? That's going to stop after today!
So, life can go on and hopefully, I can think of some happier things to blog about.
Once again, I want to thank all the supportive people out there on the World Wide Web for their thoughts, prayers, suggestions, and for just being here. And thanks to Cliff for springing for $200 for the veterinary and for putting up with the atmosphere of gloom and doom around here. He wisely spent most of his time in the shop while this was going on.

I'm so thankful that she is so much better. It's still ok to spoil her...after all you went through these past few days it still would be nice to give her a little special tlc. I know you must feel relieved to say the least. You have jump started my day with a ***BIG SMILE***. Thank the dear Lord for His many blessings. 'On Ya'-ma

I am glad to hear this report on Sadie. I went to bed earlier last night so I didn't see that report.I have been wondering if maybe she had got into some poison somehow. Maybe some rat poison some neighbors put out. Thank God for prayers being answered, vets helping out and antibiotics kicking in.

am so glad! monk is barking her approval at this post, & i'm shouting "ty Jesus".
hope she conts to get better & better.
just don't let her over do for the next few days, make her take things in stride. i know it's hard, she wants to run & play, & you want her too, but keep it to a minimum.
as for the chicken, starting tomorrow (if she's cont to eat & do well), just grind a little bit & mix in with half her normal kibbles. then each day...decrease the chicken. in about 3 days she should be weaned back. i've had to do this MANY times over the yrs. ;)
bless you all.

I'm so glad Sadie is perking up a bit! Now if we can get my cat to do the same. She didn't even eat the Cheeto we left out for her, so I know *something* is wrong.

Isn't it a great country (world) where so many people woke up this morning thinking about a sick doggie in Missouri. I mknow thats why I turned on this puter in the middle of my cleaning day.

So very glad she is better. It this returns I would check on her dog food. So many of them have been tainted with various poisons; usually from China. There is a website that you check all of the dog foods. Anne
