October 2019

We finally got Dad to post.  Things have been busy here.

Gemini's annual vet check up was early this month.  She passed with flying colors.  During that visit we me a basset hound named Chloe and her Dog Dad.  We talked for awhile.  The man asked if the people at the vet if they knew anyone that needed a dog ramp.  They asked Dad if we wanted it, we wagged our tails and we now have a ramp.  Dad needs to do some training because we don't want to use it.  
Gemini Is Not Sure About The Ramp
We had lots of visits to Angel Paws.  That always makes us happy.  Dad was home the previous week and did lots of cleaning around the house.  The place still looks like a disaster area, but we will keep after Dad to clean more.

This Monday Sherman threw up in the morning, then again when Dad got home and before bed time.  He didn't want to eat either.  Then he threw up Tuesday.  We visited the vet Tuesday.  Sherman got some fluids and tests done.  Wednesday, Dad talked to the Doc, then stopped by to pick up some antibiotics for Sherman.  The last three days Sherman has been given boiled chicken and rice to eat.  All three days Dad has had to force feed him.  If he doesn't want to eat tomorrow, Dad will get an ultrasound done in Marathon.  Sherman is slow and the not eating has Dad an Gemini worried.  Sherman is attentive, but is slow and has very little appetite.  The fact Sherman is letting Dad brush him, shows he is not feeling well.  He always gives Dad a quick ugly face during brushing.
Dad Fixed Chicken & Rice For Sherman
Sherman got to spend time in the living room this Collieween.  He is usually really barky, but he was too tired to bark.  Gemini spent time in the bedroom.  Part of the way through Collieween, it rained.  We had a good rain fur about fifteen minutes.  It seems that the Trick-or-Treaters melted away.  So the second time ever Dad has left over Collieween Candy.  The other time was after Herricane Wilma.  

Dog Speed,

Sherman & Gemini

Our Halloween was a bomb. The weather was very uncooperative. We had rain from 6am till noon, then winds kicked up at 3pm, and then it got cold at 6pm. At trick or treat time, it was 38 degrees, wind 22 mph gusting to 45 with the wind chill of 23. We had less than 10 kids show up this year... A new record low!

Sorry to hear that Sherman is sick.
It must be going around because Slick was sick for five and a half days a couple weeks ago. Throwing up, diarrhea, loss of appetite but he was drinking water most of the time. Took him to the vet and he got antibiotics and something 4 the diarrhea and some anti-nausea medicine.

I'm hoping that this is just the flu bug that Sherman caught. I'll say some prayers to aid in his speedy recovery. Until then just give him lots of rest.
