Hello to all our furry and not-so-furry friends. You can't see my face in this picture because I refused to look at the camera. Today, I (Poppy) am not feeling up to snuff. Until a few minutes ago, I hadn't eaten anything in about 36 hours and all I wanted to do was lay around. Yesterday morning, Mom knew something was wrong when she got up to find me someplace other than my bed. I am ALWAYS in my bed until Mom gets up! I was on the floor in a place that I don't usually sleep. Then, when she fed us breakfast, I just turned up my nose and walked away. She had to work, yesterday, so she checked in with Dad every couple of hours to see how I was doing. I didn't throw up or anything...I was just not my usual bouncy Aire-self. When Mom came home from work, I greeted her the way I usually do, by bouncing off the walls so she decided I must be better. Wrong. I didn't eat my supper and I let Penny have all the treats when we had our evening snack. That made Penny very happy! Since the vet's office was closed, by then, Mom decided to see how I was this morning. Well, I was pretty much the same, but I did eat the treat when Mom and Dad left for a couple of hours. When they came home, Mom was going to take me to the v-e-t, but when they came in the door, I was running around with a stuffie in my mouf and following Mom around like I usually do. She gave us each a Schmacko and I woofed it down. Then she gave us each a dog cookie and I woofed that too. It looks like I am on the mend! At least, for now, I guess I won't be going to the v-e-t. Mom has no idea what my problem was. I hadn't eaten anything weird that she knows of unless I found something outside that she didn't see me eat. I am glad I'm getting better because Penny is just a little too happy to be getting all the treats by herself!
