thanks, everybody. i'm just so ... i don't even know. confused. angry. worried. then thinking that maybe i don't need to worry until i know that i have something to worry about. tucker is so, so, so important to me. of my three dogs, all of whom i love, tucker is the only one that i actually picked and made a conscious decision that i wanted to adopt. not that this devalues the other boys in any way, but i can remember when i went into the shelter to eval a completely different dog and the lady at BARCS implored me to please look at this litter of puppies they were going to be putting to sleep and they were all so sweet and PLEASE come meet them in case you can find someone to help. and i agreed, and went into that kennel, and immediately was swarmed with black and white puppies (and one brown and white one) and i talked to the other rescue folks who agreed to split up the litter with me and my only request was that i get to take the large boy with the mantle markings.

our original intention was to find him a home, as with all fosters, and we placed him in one that lasted ... for 2 days! when i picked him up, i decided it was stupid to let him go again because i adored him, he was a very bad puppy (bratty, bratty, bratty, which i loved) and reba, for whatever reason, adored him. and reba hated most dogs she met.

he must be OK. must be. has to be. and i've got to try hard not to freak out prematurely.

Fingers crossed. I know how loved he is, and how tired and worried you must be. I really hope you get some answers ASAP from the ultrasound and that he will be ok. If you need ANYTHING please don't hesitate to ask. I'll be thinking of you (and worrying!)

just talked to the vet. ultrasound scheduled for wednesday morning with the internist, who will examine both heart and abdomen for abnormalities.

he stopped eating again last night, after a really great weekend. he went for a walk on the lake with Doc, even play bowed to him once. i took that as a good sign, since he hasn't been playing with Button at all since he's been sick and he and Button used to play every single day. but then yesterday afternoon, he decided he didn't want his stuffed kong. then he refused to eat anything but cooked beef. this morning, he wouldn't even eat that. nor would he eat canned dog food or canned tripe, which is usually irresistable. today we pick up more appetite stimulant pills at the vet to get him through the next 48 hours til his ultrasound. then hopefully we'll be on the way to some kind of treatment for whatever it is that has him so up and down.

I've been trying not to worry but now I'm really sending good vibes for some resolution!! Eating is such an important thing... I know I worry less about my 95 year old grandma when she is eating well... go go gadget appetite stimulants! That is a cute pic of them as 'opposites'.... Hang in there and try not to freak out until you really have a reason to. :hug:

Been thinking about you guys this weekend (and today). Here's hoping the appetite pills work and the ultrasound gives you some sort of information you can work with!
