The Beagle Patient
My Lulu Belle has been feeling under the weather for the past 4 days. We still haven't figured out what is the matter with her, even after two different vet clinics and some tests. Ever since she got sick Sunday evening, I've been a very worried beagle mama!! I think she may have finally started to recover from this mysterious illness, that has prevented her from a normal beagle life. She wouldn't eat or drink on her own, Steve and I have had to spoon feed her yogurt, cottage cheese and tonight I got her to eat some wet dog food. She did drink a little from her water dish tonight so I'm pretty happy about that! I've had so much help, in particular from my friends on ETSY, including the Etsy Beagle Street Team and the two vet clinics who gave her treatment.
I'm so grateful to the following wonderful people:
Tatjana, who has this shop on Etsy
Jess, who also has an Etsy shop
Kim, who has this Etsy shop
Cris Dimitriu, a good friend
all of the people on Etsy who posted in this forum and wished Lulu well, they are too many to name!
I hope Lulu is feeling her tail-wagging, howling self again soon so she can do all the things she loves including walksy palksy to the park, going to the off-leash conservation, playing with her toys, chewing her bones, stealing socks and underwear to chew and begging for people food.
