Roxy Update

Last Wednesday, our friend Millie's mother cleaned out their freezer and gave us some lamb shanks!
Millie (with sun puddles)
 We could hardly wait for the official photos to be taken!
Hurry up, woman!
 We spent a glorious afternoon eating all the meat off those.
Roxy, of course, went back to eat whatever Bella and I missed.
That night Roxy began to vomit.  She chose the carpet....the beds and indoors as opposed to outdoors.
Thursday, Roxy was very lethargic and didn't eat or drink.
But at one point rallied to bark at a strange dog next door.
That night, she continued to vomit.
She would only lick water off HER fingers, so SHE was worried.

Off to the doctors.  Roxy was x-rayed to see if there was a piece of bone blocking her up...nothing.  So she has stayed last night to be rehydrated and watched.  It's still too early to ring the vet.

SHE had a good sleep last night--not getting up to clean up vomit or cuddle Roxy.  We were going to the river...
Then SHE noticed vomit all over the house!
And a
Sad Bella outside on the supposed-to-get-the dirt-on-paws rug.

VERY subdued Bella.

We will ring the Vets in about a half hour. 
 It must be some sort of bug.

We think this is because SHE was skiting over at Nola's blog about how we rarely get sick.
Will keep you posted.


  1. Oh Dawg. This isn't good at all. We'll keep all paws crossed that Roxy and Bella are well and that Roxy comes home today. Daisy take care too little mate. Sending you all smoochie kisses and gentle hugs. NO worries, and love, Stella and Rory
    P.S. Every time Rory has a bone he vomits. Now mum just doesn't give them to him anymore, sigh.

  2. Oh No! We have our paws crossed tight they both have a speedy recovery and that Daisy has an iron clad constitutional.

  13. We went thru that a couple weeks ago with Fudge. Lots of vomit and a very sad, sick doggy. He ate nothing the first day and only rice and Pepto the second day. When the others got treats, he got Tums. After three days all was well again. Hope you're all feeling better really soon.

  14. Grrrrrrrrrrr…… bad bones!
    Get better girls… we all love you and Daisy needs her play pals to be all better.

  15. POTP to you! There was something similar going on at our house a few weeks ago; Boston and Phoenix both vomited a lot, were lethargic, ect. My grandma's dog was the same at the same time. Nola and Augustine stayed fine.

  16. Oh we sure hope everybody is feeling good again really fast! Let us know if we need to put you on the POTP page!

    Your pals,

    Murphy & Stanley

    Your new friend (and follower)

  18. Oh no. Not Bella too. We are sending you both tonnes of doxie feel good rayz. Get better soon.

  19. Good gravy, Miss Daisy. Vomiting is one of the seven deadly sins. It is forgiven if it weren't food when the pups got to it-you have to train those youngsters.

  20. OMD I am now sending my healing vibes to all of you! Gosh, this is horrible. I hate to think our beloved meat could be bad. yikes. I'm hoping everyone is feeling better so very soon.
    Grr and a Worried Woof,

  24. Oh, no! I am certainly sending my doxie healing sun rayz to you. Get better real soon! Hopefully if it is a bug it will go away quickly. It is so hard when your babies are sick AND in the hospital. Hugs to you!
