Again - not what I intended

From the mom - today was to be another trip to the city library for me and Shiloh - operative word - WAS.  
This morning we had spent almost an hour on the deck with the Furminator then to the tub for a bath.  Shiloh did really good - all I had to do was place his front paws on the side then he practically jumped in on his own - no problem.  No problem IN the tub - never tried to jump out.  He patiently waited in the tub while I started drying his ears and face then slowly came out - no problem - or so I thought.  Sometime while I was drying him some more with the towel is when he first yelped then whined.  Of course I began having all these thoughts flash through my mind - mostly thinking about his previously diagnosed Inter-vertebral Disk Disease along with the thought - what had I done to cause his current pain.  Luckily after his bath it was sunny and warm outside so I just took him out.  At first I didn't think it was bad and maybe it isn't-
Shiloh is getting around some and his tail is up and wagging - not tucked tightly between his back legs the way it was when first diagnosed. So I am hoping and praying Shiloh just strained a muscle and with a little rest he will improve on his own - with all my own medical expenses with my eye, especially the ongoing medication and knowing this vet visit, unlike Shasta's, could very well include x-rays or more, just not ready to commit to another vet visit yet, especially on a Sunday with an ER vet.  I hate to sound that way - would love to rush Shiloh to an ER vet however he is acting better than before so like I said - hoping and praying that some rest and decent temps will do the trick.  Then see what is what tomorrow.

In the meantime, The DIVA Shasta is doing very well. 
To look at her, you cannot even tell she had a problem.

If you could, please give Shiloh some POTP and prayers that it is nothing more serious then a little pulled muscle.  Thank you.

We are certainly keeping all 40 paws in our house crossed tightly for Shiloh. Feel better soon, buddy!

I think as long as Shiloh was able to enjoy his R&R today that it's just fine not to rush to the ER. Hopefully just a strain. Too much going on in your house right now. Glad the princess is feeling better. I'm sending Shiloh some good labravibes to rest and get well soon.

Kisses,
Dexter

Ernie and I both have our paws crossed tightly that it is simply a pulled muscle or somethingy like that.
My mom is NOT one to RUSH to ANY Doctor or Dogtor.. She is one who thinks it is better to play the wait and see thingy... unless there is BLOOD. So I think YOUR mom is doing the RIGHT thingy. I'm just sayin.

Shiloh, it is very brave and noble to rest your injuries. I no thinks you need ER today either. When you is feeling better, trot over to visit my dogblog so I can tell you all about my aspirations to be a reading dog just like you.

Reuben

Oh, that must have scared you so bad. We are keeping our Paws crossed that Shiloh will be better soon. Sorry you didn't get to go to the library.

Just so you know, I don't think you guys have to worry about Allred, he is scared of beagles. I think Dave and Zim are safe too but I am not too sure about Tanks safety.
