Sorry I haven't posted about my doggie Echo. I know most of you are pals with my entire family and have probably seen posts on their pages, but if not, I do apologize for just now telling you about it. Things have just been crazy at our house since Monday. I'll try to give you the condensed version of what happened.

Monday night my pup Echo got violently sick. She was vomiting and couldn't stop. Mom rushed her to the vet. She was there until last night. Mom said that she has hemmoragic gasterotintis which is essentially bacteria in her stomach/intestines. She had to have all kind of IV treatments and medicines and was, very, very sick. Mom was crying a lot and I laid with her to try and comfort her. She was really afraid that we were going to lose her. Boy, I wouldn't want that. Who would I have to torment me? But fortunately, she took a turn for the better and the vet actually said that they wanted her to come home last night because they thought that would help her recovery. She was getting depressed from being in the hospital. Can't say I blame her, I don't like it either!

So she came home last night, but I'm here to tell you, she was not herself. Not once did she try and bother me. She looked at me when she walked by, but that was all. When I laid on the sofa with the family last night, she didn't mess with me once. Now I know she's sick! When I jumped on the bed last night, she's usually always trying to get at me, but not last night. She didn't even lift her head to look at me and didn't bother me all night. Didn't even get off the bed to chase me when I got down. I am really worried cause she has NEVER acted like this. Mom said it's just because she's so tired from everything she went through and because she doesn't have much energy from being sick. Boy, I hope she's right because I want my old Echo back!!

Today dad took Echo back to the vet for IV treatment, but instead they checked her protein and hydration levels and they said it all looked good so they want her to stay at home. I don't think mom was thrilled with this because Echo got sick this morning after one of her medications, which BTW she has 6 different ones to take!! And then she wouldn't eat for mom. But the vet thinks it's the best thing and that she just need lots of rest. But he did say that if she won't eat this afternoon or tonight when mom tries to feed her then she's suppose to call them. Hopefully she eats so mom doesn't have to worry. Heck, so I don't have to worry. I love my dogs and don't want anything to happen to them. I'll try and post over the weekend to let you know how things are going, but if not, just check out Echo or Chloe's page in case mom gets to post there. Thanks to all my pals for your thoughts and prayers.
