A bit of a rant from Mom Kim -- REALLY PEOPLE?

Earlier this morning, The Diva Shasta needed to 

go to the vet for a routine kennel cough vaccine 

that she was due for - no problem there.  The 

problem happened while we were waiting for my 

sister to pick us up AFTER our appointment.  Now
don't know nor do I care why the woman had the  

dog, a very dirty and terribly ratty looking  

Westie - I know at least WITHOUT a leash and 

possibly A COLLAR - in the vet's office.  All I 

do know is that while me and The Diva Shasta were 

out in the waiting room and the other dog was in 

the exam room - the door to the exam room opened 

and out rushed the Westie.  What happened next is still somewhat of a blur (now PLEASE hear me - I am NOT trying to bash Westies, they are terrific dogs and my sister has owned Westies for 30 years - however it is irresponsible OWNERS that I bash but NOT the dog)


However if our disgruntled vet had not

intervened, then The Diva Shasta might have had 

to have more then just a kennel cough vaccine -

the Westie went straight for the back of her 

neck.  I could hear our vet say that he couldn't 

figure out why people brought their dogs in 

WITHOUT a leash (I can't either)  Meanwhile, a 

man had also brought in his young puppy 

definitely WITHOUT a leash or collar - 


It is not a large practice or office - either dog 

or puppy could escape at any given moment.  I KNOW

my dogs - they DO NOT go anywhere without their 

collar, harness AND leash except our backyard 

which is fenced and I am there at any given 


Now I may have made some people angry with me-

but this is our blog and I am expressing MY

opinion.  But to avoid any possible incidences and

attacks, then leash your dog when out in public-

that's all I ask.  A leash doesn't cost a lot-

they cost a lot less than a vet visit and 

possible legal actions.  If you can't afford to

buy a leash THEN you shouldn't have a puppy or 

that dog.  If you think putting a collar and 

leash on a puppy or a dog is too time consuming

or inconvenient then evidently you have time to 

sit in a vet's office and/or courtroom.                      
Ok, I'm done, I will get down off my soapbox now.

Shiloh's Pupdate

Yep - kinda hard to tell but that is Shiloh.  

Just a quik note for now.  Shiloh has greatly 

improved.  And I may have found the culprit in 

the backyard which caused his latest bout of 

tummy problems.  I found what appears to be a 

part of a bird carcass - was kinda hard to tell 

because as I said, it was a PART and I didn't 

want to examine it close enough for a more 

definitive answer but I was sure there was a 

feathery body - just couldn't make out a head.

Plus there were leaves and dead grass on it.  

Anyway, it isn't out there anymore - I made sure 

to get rid of it so that Shiloh couldn't get at 

it.  Shiloh is doing well.  Last evening him and 

The Diva Shasta got into a tussle and had a race

around the livingroom.  Mom had to play the 

voice of reason and made them cut it short.

All other systems are a go - what goes in is 

coming out just fine.  Shiloh has his appetite 

back and lets me know that I am not feeding him

enough.  I hope this weekend the Beaglebratz will

be able to post a bit.  Gotta go for now.

A short and happy but guarded PUPDATE

No, he's not jumping up and down like Kung-Foo 

Beagle HOWEVER he is a bit more alert this  

morning and was waiting for me when I came 

downstairs.  He did go out and potty - BOTH

which he didn't do yesterday.  He DID eat a few 

kernels of rice - I will try a bit more shortly 

with a spoonful of turkey broth altho he VERY 

WILLINGLY ate the plain white rice.  He just looks

more alert (something I don't since I was too 

worried to sleep much) and wagging his tail even

if I had a tail, it would not be wagging).  I 

will be staying home a bit to call the vet and so

I can watch him a little after he eats.  If I 

have a chance, I will try to update this later if

there is anything new happening.

And I want to thank ALL OF YOU for your concern 

and POTP.

Please can Shiloh get some POTP?

First, I want to thank WHN and Miss Tasha from Dachsies With Moxie for posting this earlier- I didn't have time before I left for work this morning.

Now then, I'm afraid Shiloh, for the most part, is no better.  When he practically turned tail and walked AWAY, rather quickly, when I fed him his breakfast, I suspected something a bit more serious than eating the wrong thing.  At least when I got home he had only upchucked twice in a bit more than 8 hours compared to 3 times last evening a little over 3 hours.  He did drink some for me earlier this eve but he did NOT eat dinner or the rice and turkey broth I offered.

I happened to mention on my Facebook wall that before this all started, Shiloh had been licking his fuzzy dog bed rather forcefully (didn't tear it or anything) but really licked it hard - the bed is now outside, away from where Shiloh can get to it. Stephanie Lilley as in River's mom from 
Down River reminded me that Shiloh could have ended up with something like a hairball and it could be obstructing his intestines.  I have been firmly pressing on different areas of his tummy and along the side but nothing seemed to bother him and no tummy grumblies-rumblies. IF Shiloh is NOT eating AGAIN in the morning, I WILL call the vet AND Shiloh will get there somehow.  And, altho I hope and pray Shiloh does NOT need their services tonite, I remembered there is an ER vet just about a block away.

Ok, so that is it for now - I need to go get some work done.
