Poor Bobo

18 Jan

Our little boy is poorly.  Not the big one who visits only on important dates or when his larder is empty; not the other one, who makes all the noise and has ‘strop’ as his default mood; but the cute one, Toby.

He charged downstairs this morning, straight to the back door, gagging.  He was sick three times.  He has refused food all day and this is a dog who believes if he’s not eating, nobody loves him.  He lives for food; we think his previous owners sometimes forgot to feed him when they left him in the freezing/boiling conservatory all day long.

His tummy has gurgled and growled all day and he has lain there looking pathetic.  He enjoyed his walk but he wasn’t as curious as usual.  He turned down all of his usual treats, including turkey jerky.  He was retching tonight but it’s just bile because his stomach is empty.

If he’s no better in the morning we will take him to the vet.  We’re not worried about the expense; if necessary, we’ll mortgage the children.

    Tilly, I hope he gets better soon. Our maltese/french Flaubert got sick last year, a stomach infection, because the maid gave him 3 day old enchilada from the fridge (I could have killed her) Nonetheless, he was very sick and 2 days later at the vet, hooked up to iv’s. It was very traumatic for me. Our pets mean so much to us.
    Wishing Toby a speedy recovery.

    Hmmm… Is he more obedient than the children? Poor little guy. I hope he feels better soon.

    I think mortgaging the children is an excellent idea.

    Sending little Toby lots of love and light. And I hope Archangel Raphael isn’t busy, cos I think Toby is deserving of some healing right now, so I will be sending in my personal requests

    I’m late reading this: I hope the news is better today. And what about the noisy one? Is he up and about again?

I welcome your comments but be warned: I'm menopausal and as likely to snarl as smile. Wine or Maltesers are an acceptable bribe; or a compliment about my youthful looks and cheery disposition will do in a pinch.
