a little Better even. .

June 26, 2013

Chuck is eating a little more and is happy to do so. Some of the refrigerated dog food and some treats and some lunch meat. Diahhrea seems to be subsiding. Great food? Probably not but hopefully on the upward trend of getting him to eat in his bowl again. I’m a little more relaxed these days. It was hard not getting stressed. I know it only makes things worse and I know the goal is to make each day great for him. But it is hard to look at a dog that 3 weeks ago was full of life turn into a quiet exhausted shell of himself. I’m getting better at this coping process. Really. I don’t walk past him and have to walk away because I break down crying anymore. I can lay with him and be “normal” . He seems Happier. I’m calmer. I just want to go back to 3 weeks ago when everything was good. But I can’t so now we make a new reality and try to make these steps forward as good as I can.

    So happy to hear Chuck is doing better. Hang in there. This is a rough, bumpy road, but so rewarding and your bond with Chuck will be even closer.

    Take care of yourself.

    Ice Cream!!! I think that deserves an ice cream cone!! I know it is hard not to be upset when our sweet puppies and kitties go through this type of adventure.. but I focused on the fact that my Franklin was just so damn handsome.. and I always greeted him with a smile and cheerful voice. They pick up on that.. as you know. I focused on the fact that I was just so damn happy to still have him with me.. and snuggled more.. got down on the floor and massaged him..
    It was relaxing.. not sure who enjoyed the massage more.. me or him!!
    Chin up girl.. before you know it you will look back at this time and think.. geesh.. what a silly girl I was!
