We interrupt this vacation memoir with an update regarding Scout

Scout's been a little ill since we got back.

First of all, she's tired. This is normal, since she plays nonstop with other dogs while she is boarded. That makes her pretty easy to handle for a couple of days.

But, she also has had (ahem) a little problem with food. She got me up in the middle of the night Sunday and last night as well.

This is what she does when she gets me up in the night: she puts her nose on my side of the bed. And sighs. Loudly. Then she goes to the bedroom door. Then she repeats if necessary. But I am a light sleeper, and I usually get it by the second time.

We're not sure, but we think she got into some other dog's kibble.

We're praying this resolves soon, for Scout's sake and for ours.

All went well today, and I learned four things:

*In Certain Circumstances, green jello tastes delicious!
*The nurse who prepped me for my "procedure" came to our Animal Blessing Service
*Good Earth hot tea is the best thing to have at the end of a fast.
*I have a lot to be thankful for.

Short update: I emailed the place Scout boarded, and she did indeed get into someone else's food. It wasn't discovered until after she left. She's improving slowly....

Praying for Scout- poor baby. I hope that all is well. Feel the love Scout, feel the love!

Glad that your green jello moments are now in the past. Peace, healing, peace.

And solid food.

Poor Scout... she seems to have more than her share of problems! I was glad to see that you got to make the trip to NYC!

Good health and Happy Thanksgiving to you and Scout!

I hope Scout's troubles "pass" soon and that she feels better.

Yes to gree Jello - No to some of the things people add to it!

Rowan and I will say a prayer for Scout too. She's such a doll.

Hope you have a great Thanksgiving... sans green jello.

PS- I finished that Luther bio last night. Wish I could sit down and talk with you about it.

Diane said...

re: Luther bio... me too. It would be great!

I hope the best for Scout.
Was the green jello lime or another flavor? If it is lime, it is always bad, in my book.

I hope that Scout recovers soon, and I'm pleased that your "procedure" is over. I join you in giving thanks.

A Blessed and Happy Thanksgiving to you and John.

green jello? really?

I hope Scout is doing better today. So sad when our little ones don't feel well. But she sure is good about it. I have a dog that sighs loudly as well...

Sometimes, if I just feel like smiling, I come over here and look at this picture of Scout. She's a doll.
