Sick Bichon Frise

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

Oh My Goodness Distpatch, I don't think I would eat to much meatloaf again if I was you. I do hope your are doing much better! Hugs and wags, Mistaya

TC said...

Thanks Mistaya, evidently the Pepto makes me hyper because I am insisting I WILL sit on Daddies lap and mama has me on a CHAIN of all things. No more meatloaf for me.

Bev said...

Hi TC. Thanks for stopping by my blog and leaving your kind words. I miss my girl so much! Take care of Dispatch---NO MORE MEATLOAF!!!! No matter how much that fluff dances around!

TC said...

Thanks for stopping by Bev, no more meatloaf is right. I knew better but they wanted him to have it.....

My friend and I were recently talking about how involved with technology our daily lives have become. Reading this post makes me think back to that debate we had, and just how inseparable from electronics we have all become.

I don't mean this in a bad way, of course! Ethical concerns aside... I just hope that as memory becomes cheaper, the possibility of downloading our brains onto a digital medium becomes a true reality. It's a fantasy that I dream about every once in a while.

Dis? Meat loaf is a NO NO, as well as the pork chop bones Mama will get mad! LOL! Glad you feel okay now.


TC said...

Thanks AL, you tell him. He's been begging for cream and milk, he gets so interested when we get either one out but I haven't given him a drop because it's supposed to be hard on his stomach.

TC--I wonder if Dispatch could have had a touch of pancreatitis?

SquirrelQueen said...

Glad to hear you are feeling better Dispatch but no more meatloaf or cream, bad for you.

I guess all the good stuff is bad for him, come to think of it if it tastes good it's usually bad for us too.

TC, you asked how I could tell the squirrel was a girl. The same way with people or dogs. When they stand up on their hind legs the little boys can't hide their manhood in their fur.

TC said...

Ok Judy, I never knew that about squirrels, well I did about the flying squirrel but I thought he was deformed because...well he was endowed and then some. Thanks.
Yes Dispatch will have to learn that if it tastes good spit it out. He's finally reconciled himself to eating dog food again, I did relent and give him a bit of pasta and cheese I was eating, a bit.
Bev I will have to look up pancreatitis in dogs. He has to eat quite a large amount of meat or greasy food before he becomes sick.
The worse time was when they fed him t bone steaks @ a bar b que, everyone thought they were rich so lets feed the dogs t bones with the meat on, sick dog for 2 days.

Awww...poor Dispatch! I was just looking for pics to post about my sick bichon when I found this post about yours. Our bichon, Popcorn, can't tolerate any dairy OR greasy foods. Fortunately he loves vegetables like no other dog I've ever seen! tomatos, lettuce, broccoli, green beans...anything but onions, which are a doggy no-no anyhow!

Glad to hear Dispatch is blitzing around in bichon happiness again!
