Sick as a dog

Clary B. is sick today. She vomited twice during the night and several times early this morning before hosing down the living room with another vom spray just before lunch. During naptime she had diarrhea indoors, and she had it again tonight when Petunia and I came back from date night (nothing says romance like dog diarrhea, eh?). The vet says not to worry too much and to give her a bland diet of chicken and rice, so that's what we're doing. But poor, poor Clara! She's so sad, and she looks so guilty when she shits in the house. We're very gentle with her and tell her we're sorry she's feeling crummy, but her body language says she thinks she's in trouble. Poor baby! I'll be sleeping downstairs on the couch tonight to be sure she's doing okay. Since she usually sleeps on our bed, I'd feel awful if we abandoned her while she's sick. Let's hope this last bout of diarrhea was her last!

Is she any better yet? Billy was the same way when he was so sick in May. He plainly felt guilty and like he was in trouble. Poor puppies! I hate when they feel so bad.

She's MUCH better today. She was a little sick yesterday morning, but the rice and chicken diet seemed to bind her up. Poor Clary Belle!

Poor Clary Belle indeed, but sounds like she might be on the mend. Hooray!
