Well it's been really busy here. Last night, the GSD Roca got adopted! Yay!
And the Poodle/Border collie (BorderCoodle??) got adopted yesterday.
And Pudgie leaves today!!
Here's a pic of her, being her natural Princess self, on the big bed we got a few nights ago at Costco. All 9lbs. of her chunky self, laying right in the middle of the bed - perfect!!
And the Labrador puppy, Angus, we're not sure if it's an allergy or "just" intolerance but we "loaned" him to a family friend of ours over the weekend, she fed him freaking Iams puppy (not the canned, the kibble) what her own Pug pup eats and he got violently ill, she thought he had parvo!
But when we got him back, we subcued him, he WAS very dehydrated, weak and just worn out. She said he'd had diarrhea most the day Saturday and then threw up Sat. evening and Sunday AM. We got him back around 1pm Sunday (too long, I know!) She said he'd kept drinking water, though, which probably exacerbated the vomiting, anyway...
We also gave him Kaopectate when he got here, and even some flagyl just in case it was something odd like giardia - but he never had diarrhea since he got back until yesterday when we mixed in some Maxximum puppy, it has CORN in it.
Well his backend exploded, and you could see the grains or flecks of corn in the poo - it was yellow like it did not digest at all. So no more corn dog food for him at all. We put him on Kirkland puppy and he's been fine today. Kirkland is chicken/rice, no corn!
It was really odd yesterday, he'd eaten that other puppy food for breakfast and I was out photographing him a few hours later and he seemed bloated, well he just started crying, his poor tummy hurt - he then went and it shot out his back end! He was better then and I realized it was the corn that was doing it to him. Before that, he ate just rice with turkey mixed in, a homemade concoction and we were going to gradually add the puppy kibble until he ate it again.
He's so adorable. And the gal who babysat him raised Labs years ago and figured he's a purebred, for sure!
