Sick Sexy Pug
Penny and I haven't had much time to write this week.
We've been spending a lot of time at the vet. One
morning Penny woke me up, and I could tell
something was really wrong. The slight
cough she has had for a couple of
weeks, was suddenly worse. She
wasn't acting like her sexy
The doctors ran some tests and had to keep Penny for
a few hours. They finally had the results in after
a long 24 hour wait. While she was at the vet,
the office received numerous worrisome, and
obsessive calls from me. "How's my baby,
is she scared? If you could rate her
nervousness on a scale of 1 to 10
what would it be? When can I
pick her up?"
I don't do well when she is away.
I think I have more separation
anxiety than she has. We're
a perfect match for one
We found out from the x rays, Penny has a lung infection,
as well as an intestinal infection. She also has a pretty
severe case of arthritis in her back legs. The doctor
has her started on some strong antibiotics and
She's on the road to recovery and enjoying being waited on
hand and foot. She is watching cartoons all day and
sleeping. No sickness can keep a beefy sexy pug
down! I'll let you know how she is doing and
we really appreciate all the well wishes!
Penny and I would also like to give a shout out
to all those that are serving and have served
in the military! Especially to my brother
Brett, who is overseas serving in the
Navy right now!
Happy Veterans Day!
