tough night...

Carol  ·  May 1, 2012

smokey had a grand mal just after midnight and his recovery was pretty panicked and upsetting for him. he is settled and sleeping quietly now...not sure how much physical affects are left this morning..hopefully he can walk without launching and falling cuz that really frightened him last night.

maybe had to be popped up into a cage cuz smokey's troubles were pissng her off and he had enough things upsetting him..he didn't need a one eyed pissed off peke ragging on him. maybe made sure we all knew how angry she was to be stuck in a cage in the middle of the night.

ewok was very concerned about smokey and sat at my side staring straight at me while i comforted him..i knew she was willing me to please help her brother, she too was very scared.

big much fear in my bedroom last a bit of selfish angst and pissiness from our lttle diva peke..all of the dogs were glad when finally smokey was able to let go of it all and just sleep. once he was down and resting...maybe was set loose from her cage and all of us were able to sleep.

nights like last night remind me why it is so critical that i actuallly do live here with them..i can't imagine closing this place down at 5 or 7 or 9 or 11 pm and then just walking away and leaving them alone to fend for themselves til the next THAT would be pretty damn scary and sad.



Francesca and Don,

I am so very sorry for your loss. I hope that you find comfort in knowing that Dolly will be waiting for you at the Bridge. God bless you and prayers for you all.


Happy Birthday, Carol! Hope you have a wonderful day and that you have a bit of time to yourself - perhaps a nice, hot soak in the tub!


Francesca & Don.. I am so very very sorry to hear of Dolly's passing. She was such a special dog & she loved you as much as you loved her. I will light a candle for her tonight & give my guys an extra hug & kiss.

Cyber Hug to all of you (((((((hug))))))))


Happy Happy B Day Carol. Hope your day is stress & crisis free . This post entitles you to lunch on me at the next opportunity.
