Last night when I went to bed I had Sadie get up on the bed and lay down next to me. She put her head on the pillow and she took up most of the bed. (Just ask Lynilu about how Sadie hogs the bed) I laid on the bed with her for about 2 hours just petting her and hoping she was calming down. She put her head on my neck and feel asleep. As she normally does, she woke me up at 5:30am to eat. I was happy to see that she ate her food just fine and then went back to sleep. When I got up she was kind of anxious so I took her for a walk and she pooped and peed. About 5 minutes after we got back inside she threw up again. I am not sure what is worse: cleaning up dog puke or seeing the sad look on her face. I decided that I needed to call the vet. I didn't want to call my boss because the last thing she needs right now is worrying about Sadie. The vet said that it could be from her eating different food, stress or a virus. They told me not to feed her until late tonight and just to give her a little bit to see if she keeps it down. She is drinking water, so I know she is not dehydrated. I sure hope she is better when I get home, but I still sit here and worry about her.
I ended up coming into work about 30 minutes late and I will probably leave a little early as well. I don't think my boss would mind since it's because of Sadie. In spite of the throwing up and about tearing my arm off on walks, Sadie is still one of the sweetest dogs. Even Ben is trusting her now. He came out last night when I was laying next to her and laid next to me and Sadie.
I have a question for all of you. Is it possible for two people that come from completely different backgrounds and whose lives are so different, but have a deep love for each other able to make it? I've had something on my mind for the last couple of weeks and would be interested in what you guys think. I'll do a post in a few days about why I am asking this question.
