Gone to the dogs!

In case you're wondering, yes, these two rule the roost.

But man they are high maintenance!

Last week, Jack who is on the left went to the vet with what turned out to be a pulled muscle in his neck, so he's been on medicine for a week.

This morning I walked into the kitchen and poor Mikey, right, was spread eagle on the tile floor and when I picked him up and set him down again, he couldn't walk and was obviously having a seizure.  I hurriedly went to brush my teeth and jump in the car with him to go to the vet.  He was scared and I was really scared.  He's had these before but this one seemed so severe.

I walk into the vet's office looking like a street woman and screaming emergency
and ask if they can possibly see Mikey.  Since he's seizing in front of them they said certainly. he's on two seizure medications.

Tomorrow they both go to get their shots!  I may be looking for a loan real soon.  I think they go to the doctor more than our kids ever did.

Oh, yes, it has been a crazy week around here!
 Some days it just feels like we're going to the dogs!

Im so so sorry!
my heart really goes out to you because our pets are our babies.
I will say a little doggie prayer for each of then and for you.
Give them a little pet for me and a treat and tell them its from your blogger buddy.

How scary!!! I do hope that Mikey and Jack are both on the road to recovery. It's tough when they can't tell you what is wrong.

So sorry. I know that is scary! Hope the new meds will work well and keep things under control!

Hope you are having some of this warm, sunny weather....well, not very warm.

So sorry your furry kids have had some troubles. Seizures are no fun, I have a friend whose little dog has them. Hope the meds take care of it really soon! Glad you could get them right into your e-vet!
