the new guy has diarrhea...I don't think this is anything new because I saw dried diarrhea near his rectum when I was looking to see if he was neutered.
it is a total upsetting drag to be a brand new dog here with diarrhea...I need to keep them shut in without free access to outside because new dogs want to go home and don't want to be here so they get outside and do not want to come back in.
anyway..Curtis is upset because he is having accidents and is a bit worried that I might get mad... it will take him some time to learn that I don't care...this why we have lino and bleach buckets, so accidents are not a big deal for anyone here.
I will start him on some flagyl today and get a stool spec into the vets to hold him until I get him in for an overall good check.
so far, he really is a very nice dog...a bit of a worry wart but that's understandable considering his life has just turned upside down. I think he will get the hang of it quickly around here once I can give him a little more freedom.
Curtis was a bit of a short notice...the email came in Thursday night that he had to be gone by Friday...I said I would meet him with no promises to take him depending on how I thought he would fit in around here.
part of me almost hopes the dogs will get here and fail but the bigger part of me is always glad when I meet them and see that yes we can help them. nice dog, not his fault his family got old and couldn't come home anymore. apparently he was a rescue from a chained life a mere three years before.
I think this dog has been around the block a few times and knows how unhappy life can sometimes be and so he is watching and waiting to see what life is dealing to him this time around.
I hope he finds kindness and happiness here.
