I'm sorry to hear about your dog. People who don't regularly keep pets don't understand that they become members of the family, and, in a lot of cases, like your children. In fact, some people keep animals rather than kids! My parents filled the empty nest with a dog that they baby like a child; I never imagined either one of them being that kind of dog-owner. Heck, even I'm very attached to their dog, despite having only lived with her for a little less than two years. I don't buy her fast food (like they do), but I will take her riding in my car and feed her from my plate. I can imagine how upset you are at the moment

In the Laura Ingalls books, she reccounts when they thought their dog had drowned and she asks her father if he will go to Heaven. Pa replies, "God who doesn't forget the sparrow won't leave a good dog like Jack out in the cold." I am sure your dog will be looked after as well. I hope that your dog, as in the case of Jack, will recover and live many more happy years.

P.S. Don't beat yourself up over the gum. I knew for quite some time that sugar alcohols tear me up and that I have to avoid sugar-free products, yet I bought sugar-free gum one day not even thinking that it would have sugar alcohol in it. After all, it was around before sugar alcohols came on the market. It was painful to learn that I was wrong, but as my fiance says about medieval fighting, "Pain is a wonderful teacher." You can bet I think twice before buying gum now. In fact, I even go so far as to question the ingredients in realitives' pies and cakes if they are sugar free.

Hi blondie,
Abby (my dog) and I will be praying for your baby. I am very attached to my dog so I know the pain you must be going through. Stay strong for him. Its totally natural for your gut to be upset with all of the stress. Does the vet know what may have caused this?
Hugs, Des

The vet has no idea...except either he ate something he's horribly allergic to..or he has coronavirus or parvo...but he just got his parvo vaccine!! we dont know whats up...he also has epillepsy so we dont know if that has anything to do with it..and yeah the stress has taken a toll!

I'm so sorry about your poochie, Blondie...ugh, it's terrible to have a sick pet.  If my cats have to go in for something big I always end up a blubbering heap.  How is he doing now?

He's doing much better...the vet called and said he had stopped having D and his back legs are working fine now...she said he's happy as can be, being his usual Lab self. (he's a 10 year old chocolate lab btw) the blood work came back negative for parvo or anything bad like that. they think he actually ingested some sort of nut!! weird huh. fyi, macadamia nuts are severly toxic to dogs...it causes temporary paralysis! we found that out...they wont let him come home tho untill he has a normal bowel movement..:/hopin that will be soon!! thanks guys for your support/sympathizing!! :)

I am so happy to hear the news blondie... he really sounds like a fighter. No more nuts!!! I didn't know that about macadamia nuts... thats crazy. And dogs love peanut butter so I never thought any nut could be dangerous. Thanks for that info so I don't accidently let Abby have any. Hugs to you and give that big guy a hug from me :)
