Sick Bichon Frise
Dispatch says there is a special place in heaven for those who get up multiple times in the middle of the night to stand outside with a sick bichon frise (in the middle of a town braless with baggy sweats on in a parking lot @ 1:00am and 3:00am, overshare I know but I was like I can't believe I'm doing this, and Dispatch was like getting 20 ft away, in the grass to the side, I don't let my dog go potty where people walk, and I'm thinking if something scares him I'm going to have to RUN to get him.....).
So when we get back in here he has to try and share his extreme joy that he got to go potty and mommy didn't forget him and he didn't have to make a mess (he hates human flatulence BTW, not that I do that and when I do it smells like roses but he will move off your lap if you do it more than once potently). So he's trying to share his joy but the problem is Daddy is ASLEEP and Dispatch is trying to share the joy with EVERYONE, plus it's rained for 3 days so Dispatch being low to the ground was WET. He felt SO much better, evidently he sat up in the seat and whined for awhile before thickheaded mommy got up. So when Dispatch does decide he can sleep again it's on the pillow beside mommy's head which places bichon butt way too close to mommy for comfort but we lived.
The reason for the sickness? Our friends got a doggie bag for meatloaf we had and Dispatch smelled it while meeting some other people and was doing the I can walk forever on my hind legs for food dance, he got the meatloaf. BTW he met an apricot poodle named Buffy, Buffy treated him like he treats big dogs. Dispatch was like me! You don't like ME? But I am Dispatch, big fluffy white angel dog. (he was big compared with Buffy). Anyway he begged for cream when I put some in my coffee too and I gave him a dash, the meatloaf and the cream was just too much thus doggie diarrhea. He's always had a bit of a sensitive stomach, I used to feed him cereal with bran when he was little. Somehow people think this is SPOILING a dog? Evidently they don't have a bichon?
So I didn't have any regular pepto bismol so I crunched up part of a tablet and put a little milk on it and he got most of it down with a bit of persuasion. I don't see how he can have anything left to poop so we will see how today goes.
This is how he looks when he feels good, actually he blitzed a bit this morning so I think it's over or not serious.
Update: Dispatch actually feels a bit better,after another piece of pepto. He is hyper and like attached to his Daddy right now and since Daddy is sort of occupied driving the semi Dispatch is on a chain part of the time. I think the pepto makes his obsessive compulsive behavior worse? He's going to wear one of us out though trying to be as close to Daddy as possible. He may still be looking for the border patrol that we met earlier. He hates border patrol although I'm pretty sure he's a citizen?
7 PM, he ate a bit of dry dog food and drank. We stopped @ Wal Mart and he took a couple walks while we were there. So far he hasn't been sick any more so I think he's on the mend. NO MORE MEAT LOAF, could have been the grease off the pork chop bones they gave him too. BTW I threw the pork chop bones out the window after Dis ate the good off of them so he wouldn't chew on them and choke. I forgot there was traffic around us! LOL
