I think I'm over it!

Well thanks everybody for all your get well wishes and comments! I think I am finally over whatever bug I had. I ate my regular dinner last night and had a regular breakfast this morning. I even pooped this morning!

Mom got me some of those char-tar biscuits yesterday. They are huge! Do you really eat two of them a day, Reilly? I only weigh 13 pounds! My vet did tell us in an email from last night that she is not in favor of the charcoal idea and prefers giving dogs pepcid. She said you can give it each night before bed and that she has seen Yorkies with the same problem. But mom is not a fan of giving a medicine every day. So she thinks she needs to research the charcoal thing some more, and she'll talk to Dr. Jan about it in person and see why she doesn't recommend charcoal.
Any way I am hoping to get back to some of my usual activities - herding birds and squirrels, zoomies, longer walks, car rides, visits to the park, and training! I miss the obedience, tricks, and agility stuff! And I especially miss the treat rewards!

Gotta zoom!!!!!

Hey little zoom zoom buddy, so glad you are feeling better. Oh oh....did you buy the big dog char always get the miniature ones they are about an inch long. I wonder why your doggy doctor doesn't recommend them and my doggie doctor does. They are not solid charcoal......its just a cookie with a little bit of charcoal in them. I have had a busy day and just finished my agility work so time for a snooze now on my favorite vent.

ooooh good Ricky! Katie and I are are so glad you feel better! You are only 13 pounds? You are tiny! I thought Katie was small at 17 pounds!
Katie and I are working on sleeping through the night without barking at every little sound while we camp...she is getting better! I wonder how Ricky likes camping, I saw that he got to go on a camping trip a bit back. Does he sleep all night in the tent? See Katie's picture at my blog:

Hey Ricky, sorry you were sick this weekend, but so glad you are feeling better. Wonder if you had the same thing I had? I threw up foamy stuff too and my breakfast last week. Maybe the wind blew it over to ya?

Mum talked to our Auntie Bonnie (vet) and she gave us some Chinese herbs for when my tummy gets upset again and for the gurgling.

They are called Huo Xiang Zheng Qi Wan. They stopped my gurgling real fast. We have to do more research on them, but thought you may want to know about them.
