I did NOT have fun this past weekend.
Normally it’s something I look forward to. Me and my humans, hanging out, playing some games, licking some ears, begging for food, and in general spreading my love.
But it’s not as fun when you have explosions coming out of your butthole. Lots of explosions can be fun. Like explosions of food. Explosions of excitement. Explosions of toys. This wasn’t any of those.
The first thing I did Friday morning was run outside and get sweet, sweet relief. It had been building up all night. But it didn’t stop there.
After a few minutes inside, an explosion came out of my mouth. Yes, inside the house. My female human was not happy. Well, stand in line female.
Usually, I’m a one and done type of dog when it comes to gross stuff coming out of my body. But it got worse throughout the day. It got so bad that I had to take a trip to the 24 hour vet.
Yep. Instead of spending Friday night curled up on the couch, I was at the emergency room.
To the right, you can see me sitting patiently in the waiting room.
I stepped on the scale and I still weighed 70 lbs. Seriously, I thought my weight in nastiness had already come out of me, so it was good to see the big seven zero.
The nice lady took me and my male human to another room, and I spent a few minutes exploring.
There were some other dogs on the other side of the door, so I tried to look at them.
And then I just got bored and remembered I was sick.
After all of this, it turns out the whole trip was a waste. Even with a muzzle on, the vet wouldn’t inspect me. She only tried twice, but I could tell she was scared. Well, so was I! She was really tall and wearing a big, white coat. Who wears a big, white coat?
My normal vet (who does not have 24 hour emergency services) gets down in the floor and plays with me before he tries to do anything. This is fun. Still uncomfortable and awkward, because honestly he’s still about to stick something up my butt. But fun.
Anyway. My human got some pills to give me, and I’ve been taking two a day. I even get special food. I now feel much better!
