Its Been A Yucky Sicky Week ~ Selfies On Sunday

We beg all our blogger furends to pawray fur our doggy brofur, MrJackFreckles, as he isn't feeling that swell of late.

Ugh, I don't like being an urka-gurka pup.

Could you take a moment to pawray fur me to get better? Pawlease? This is my sickly selfie...

Well, Mr JackFreckles had to go to the vet on Tuesday...and petcretary had to call back there on Friday, too. OMD.

I started to just be worse with my not wanting to eat, etc...and so off to the stabby place we went. Thankfully no stabbies happened...but petcretary stole some of my pee while I marked some grass alongside the fence...and she grabbed some poo-poo too. Sheesh, peeps are weird!
Vetman checked me out and looked at those things petcretary gifted him with, and he said he saw a bunch of bad buggies in there. Eeuuw! So he prescribed Cerenia for my nausea and Albon for those bugs.
Bad mistake I say...furry bad indeed. I started to vomit and had diarrhea all over the yard and even in the kitchen when I couldn't go outside fast enough...yuck.
When petcretary came home from her work, I did not even raise my head to greet her, let alone get our to see who was coming inside.
I had NO interest in any noms, not even my fave treats. Petcretary gave me another day to perhaps get used to the Albon, but to no avail. She called the vet back, who prescribed Flagyl and Reglan. Then she gave me rice mushed up with baby food chicken, but I chucked that all over the doggy nest I was in...OMD. ( And I had already lost 1.5 pounds...)
So after about an hour or so, she gave me coconut water with a syringe, an ounce. I kept that she gave me an ounce every hour for quite some time. That stuff tastes kind of strange, but it has lots of good electrolytes in it she told me...she did not want me to get dehydrated.
The next morning I got up when she came downstairs..and I even wagged my tail:)
But still not wanted to eat anything.
So she gave me my meds and waited a bit, then she gave me some more of that mush...which this time I kept down. Hooray! So I 'ate' that way for about 24 hours. Last night after a few more bites of that mush and some coconut water, I ran away from that silly spoon, and petcretary thought maybe I wanted to chuck up she let me be. Howevfur after a bit I actually went to the bowl of kibbles and rice crispies she had decorated them with and devoured it all up! Wonder of wonders!
But now, today all I wanted was my cookies, BOL! But I did eat by about 2 breakfast which became my lunch...BOL! And I am going outside to patrol the perimeter like I always do...and I greeted Daisy from next door.
Hopefully this means I am now on the right kind of medicines and have turned the corner for the better. I sure hope so, this urka-gurka is not fun, not to mention having the squirts...

Well, enough about me.
I and my kitty brofurs hope you are having a great Sunday.
Next week is Easter, but Petcretary has to go to work all the weekend..sigh...we shall see how we dogabrate and catabrate this spawsial day...

OK, We can relax, now, Dog-guy is starting to feel a bit better.

We had some strange weather here past week also...rain by the tankload, and more wind, wind, wind. Lots more branches and limbs in the yard, its a wonder the trees still have any! Then we even had a night of snow and freezing rain. Now *that* was a big mess, thankfully now its all melted and the past three days have been warmer and even the sun has blessed us with warm sun puddles to bask and bake in:)
That sun sure plays funny with my furs...
I am worried about my doggy brofur.
Still having a funny color...sheesh.
I sure look yellow, too...but wow, am I really *this* fluffy??
Phew, at least this color is more like it, Petcretary!

Dog-guy: Thanks for purring and pawyering fur me guys!  WBS: Hey we know you are feeling some better, but can you let *us* play with our mousie?

Nobody guessed it right this time, we all get a greenie, MOL!

I'm glad the kitties were being nice to you too. Maddie cat used to just punch me in the nose!

  29. OH NOSE...Mr. Jack we be so sorry you had the sickies. BUTT glad you's doin' better! You got some good nurses over there. My sissy, Holly, is doin' great too. For an old gal, she sure is full of spunk. And yes, she's a JRT too, just like you. You two even look alike except she has just one brown ear and the rest of her is white. Thank you for the POTP for Holly. And we're all sending POTP right back to you so that you stay well. :)

    1. We are glad to know Holly is feeling better, too.

  30. I don't know how I managed to miss your Sunday Selfies this week. They are all lovely. I hope Mr JF is feeling much better by now.

  31. Jeez Mr Jack Freckles I have not been around with helping Lee in the yard and I am so sorry I am just know reading you have been sickie. I pray you are improving every day ~ I am sad when friends are sick. Power of all four of my paws coming your way. I hope you can have a Happy Easter! Remember Easter is the only time of the year when it's perfectly safe to put all your eggs in one basket.
    Happy Easter All
    Sweet William The Scot

  32. MrJackFreckles is feeling pretty well...but he just is not as interested in eating all that much. He does eat, though he leaves some in the bowl...which for a vacuum cleaner is strange.
    We had a good if quiet Easter.
