This was my view at 2:30 Saturday Morning
It all started out some what normal here Friday - I'm am cleaning out he bean bin and hauled 2 loads in to Bunge , It was 2 p.m. and it was getting hot and I was running out of gas - So I locked up and came home , EG had ate around 12 - I let her out for a business run , I laid down on Kadins bed and her by my side , after about 10 minutes I told her I needed to go get cleaned up , she hopped off the bed and threw up part of her lunch , I thought what's that all about ? I tried to get it cleaned up before she ate it again which didn't work out so well .
I got cleaned up wife told me when I came in the living room that she had threw up again - I was really getting worried by now , she came out and got her a drink and she then acted just fine , played with her ball , everything . Well , maybe she had upset tummy .
It was now getting around 5:30 0r so , She was out here in the office with me and she threw up the water she had just drank ! It was now 7:30 , left her out , she threw up water 3 more times , Action time was now here , I called my Aunt Bug in Portland at 7:42 - We both thought this is close to a emergency , She then settled down - till around 9 , threw up again , Called Cindy - Like Bug and I had talked - could it be a blockage ? I thought No way it could and told Cindy , I just can't believe it could , she then told me about a client that had a puppy eat a sports bra ! I then knew it could not be a blockage - I don't have a sports bra
Cindy said , see if she will take some water and keep it down - So I did , we went to bed at 11:30 - 3 hours past our bed time ! I had her laying right next to me , then at 12:30 , she hopped up and threw up the water , I went in and got dressed - woke wife up and told her we were headed to the VCA in Fishers . I had the Tahoe already loaded up and ready , as I pulled out of the drive I was talking to the VCA and told them I will be there in a hour .
I was worried about 2 things - Blockage and dehydration . We pulled in at 1:40 , let them know we were there , Tech came out and did a parvo test - takes 10 minutes - she called at 2:20 - 40 minutes after telling me it would be 10 minutes - lol
Got a call from the Vet at 3 am . We went over everything and then her plan - X-rays to check for blockage first on the list , then if it was clean - then would give her a shot of anti nausea meds and fluids under the skin , We agreed on everything and she said it would take around 2 hours - I though crap ! that will be 5 am , we had got up at 5 am on Friday - I was running on fumes - so laid the seat back - grabbed my jacket for a pillow and some way -- I fell to sleep , Woke up at 4:40 and had only been up for a minute or so and the phone rang ! I was sick at my stomach - fear ! Thinking the worse !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I answered the Doc asked Ken ? Speaking -- GOOD NEWS she said ! NO Blockage - I was wanting to jump up and down and yell thank you Lord ! Doc said she had to eat something like a bug , a spider bite , something did not agree with her .
I will admit this trip rates at the top of tough things I have did - It was a year on Aug 9th I were last there with Ali - and Doc gave me the News that Ali was in her short rows - I remembered it so clear as I sat there wonder if I would get that same news on EG . Yes - I had a talk with the big guy asking not to take her yet - He had Kasia and Ali - give us some time with this little girl and yes I sat in the Tahoe and had a good cry , Not again !
It was a little before 5 am and got the call from the tech she was bring out EG - I told her to give me a second to open up the rear and for her just to put her in and lock the crate - I would stand back and clear for her and my safety ( Indy and Fisher area are HOT Spots ) Here they both came out - Tech had her on a slip lead and EG looked like a little show dog ! carrying herself so proud - head up , looking left then right along with Dober Gant - What a pretty site !
I pulled back in the drive at 6 am . Got girl out and wiped her all down several times and cleaned her paws , laid her down in bed and I was right behind her , LOL We got up at 8:30 , no sleeping in - I had to got to New Pal Vet to pick up a few cans of ID for her to mix with here kibble .
We all talk about socializing our new puppies - I never , ever , dreamed her first trip out , would be to a ER .
Sitting in a parking lot in the middle of the night - a person has lots of time to think - What did I miss ? Should I have got here sooner ? What could she have gotten into ? What , What ,What ? + a few Whys ?
Well it all worked out and so happy it did for a change , but it is driving the wife and I crazy and to what caused it - And something we most likely ever figure out .
Oh , One more thing - when she got up this morning , I thin she was trying to make up for a lost day of playing DoberShark !!!!!!!!!!! She on an a mission , lol
Everybody have a great Sunday and give your Dober a BIG hug
