Our ailing dog and toddler

Just a quick update.  As I said before, our dog Biscuit wasn’t able to stand yesterday.  Well, this morning, he got up and started walking. He walked for much of the morning.  I even took him outside.

Feels great to be outside!

Although he was walking, he’s back to just laying down now.  He’ll have his ups and downs.

Tomoe’s update is less positive.  Last night, she had a fever of 38.6 degrees C.  Today, we went out shopping at Costco, and later went to a clinic because she was producing nothing but thin yellow liquid poop that smelled really bad.  She also slept a lot, although her fever has gone away.  So, what did we find out?  She has a stomach virus, what people commonly call the stomach flu.  She can’t eat any solid food until it’s cleared up.  And when she does have something, it can only be tea, watered down formula, and an ion water drink.

Sitting in the car we rented outside of the clinic.

Hopefully, Tomoe will be feeling good soon.

  1. That’s sad to hear about your dog. My family has lost two dogs since I was a child so I understand how it feels. One dog got cancer quite young, but the other got very old and ill. It seems Tomoe has been ill for a long while. Fingers crossed for your your family.

    • Thanks. Tomoe had a cold first, but she got over it. Then the stomach flu started. Just one right after the other.

      Our dog has started crying today. At least he’s asleep right now.
