Sicker than a human

Today I have a sore throat. No doubt will get worse shortly, runny nose, aches and pains, cough, and a second sore throat from post-nasal drip.

I'd say I was sicker than a dog, but the dog was way sicker than I am. Poor guy was losing it rapidly from both ends. Need I say more? This is a family rated blog. After a few days of illness, the emissions turned red. Very scary for the whole family; we thought we were going to lose doggie. Everyone was crying. Doggie could barely walk outside to do his duty. Climbing stairs was a major chore. One step at a time was all he could manage.

Five days after T-day, he is noticably thinner than he was then. Maybe he ate something bad, or he caught stomach flu from another dog: we had three visiting.

He is noticeably peppier today. He barked in the morning to warn the wife I was coming down the stairs. He had only done a similar thing maybe once since last Friday. Now he is begging food from everyone. But he is being held to a strict diet until he shows he can keep it all down and digest the food normally. But the water is going through his system now in a good way.

Hopefully we'll still have doggie for a few more years.
