Sick puppy

These last two nights here with Tandy have been challenging, he has been up all night with diarrhea and vomiting. Ugh! What a job that is, he is waking me every hour so i am not really sleeping at all. But through it all he has been amazing and tells us when to take him out, he is very smart, never had an accident in the house so that is a relief. I took him to the vet today and now have some pills to give him. I was so worried about giving them to him, i have heard many horror stories about people giving their dog pills and the work involved, i even looked up video's online! Then i did as the vet said, wrapped the pill in a cheese slice, pretended with the dog that it was training time and voila, he swallowed the ball of cheese with pill whole!! Hahaha, the easiest thing i have ever done! It helps that Tandy is the kind of dog who eats any and everything, hence the reason he is in his predicament anyway!! He is on a diet of white rice for 48 hours so hopefully tonight is a night of sleeping well and no outdoor bathroom breaks. The first night i fell down the stairs in the dark going to him, then on the way up i estimated another step at the top and was wrong and tripped into the hallway! I guess its been a while since i have had to get up at night and stumble around in the dark!


  1. Poor Tandy! And you! Hope he gets better soon.

  2. Poor Tandy!!! Pompei did something like this for our first few weeks of his stay so I know how you feel! Hoping he feels better soon and lets you get some sleep!!!
