More a vent than anything else, but Griffin did it again. Naturally, on a major holiday when the vet's closed. We went on a hike, he ate something, and now he's erupting like Old Faithful. I am counting hours until the vet opens tomorrow morning.
Thankfully, I scored some chicken, rice, and sweet potatoes at the market (market was out of pumpkin and so are we at the house). Roasted the potatoes in the oven, and he's getting a mix of that with chicken and rice. I'm mixing water in it to make sure he stays hydrated. He's drinking, he wants to eat, and his gums are okay.
Still, I know how this is going to go. He'll start getting mucus in his poop and it won't quit till we get to the vet and get the meds. I forget what they put him on the last time. He really does have a solid "leave it", but he's a sneaky little devil and will snarf something up when my back's turned. I love my Doberman, but dear Griffin, your timing sucks, amigo.
