        I have been home again for a couple of days because Zoey is ill.  She is throwing up and has diarrhea.  Now today her ears are all swollen and she has like sores in them.  She is still getting sick.  I thought she just had a touch of gastroenteritis.  It started out with what looked like hives.  We thought maybe she was allergic to her antibiotic she was on for her staph so we stopped them, but she just gets worse.  I am so worried.  She is sleeping in the kitchen and it just is killing her not to be by us at all times, but it is easiest to clean up the floor.  She cries and it makes me cry.  What is wrong with her?   Hopefully we can get in the vet this morning.

     Rick has been staying at his mom all day since I have to be here.  To top it off taking Zoey out in a hurry a couple of days ago we had an accident and I am all banged up.  It has been a bad couple of days.  And I got a call from the doctor that he wants to repeat part of my dexta scan because of this weird thing on my back.  Please, NOT NOW.  NOT ALL AT ONCE.   THIS FAMILY NEEDS A BREAK RIGHT NOW.


    Well.  Another depressing post.  You all know how much we love our dear dog so please let nothing serious be wrong with her.  And please let my BIL leave tomorrow so we all some peace there also.

   I am so worried for Zoey.  Please say some prayers for her.  She is just so sweet.

I pray for them to find out what is wrong with Zoey and that they can do something for her. I hope the BIL will leave tomorrow but then in the shape he is in it may e dangerous for him and others for him to be driving. I hope you can take steps to keep him away. I pray that nothing serious is going on with your back and that your MIl will be comfortable soon. Hopefully things will go smoother for your Family soon. Helen

Your Zoey is just beautiful.  I hope the Vet can fathom it out.  You will need to take a specimen of her urine and the other for a quick diagnosis.  Otherwise he may send you home to wait for it to appear, then take it in next time. I made that mistake with our dog when he had similar symptoms.  I hope he sorts her out!
Prayers have always been said for Betty and of course now you and your  darling pet.
I pray that yours isn't anything sinister Julie.  Its about time you all had a break in your home.
The BIL can't go quick enough for me!  Just keep out of his way when he does.
Love'n hugs

Poor Zoey!! I feel so bad for her! I agree with Jeanie, get some urine and stool before you go if you can. Maybe she got an intestinal parasite.
Scary about BIL! He must be a scary character if he is like a Sociopath. What a relief it will be for all when he's gone.
I hope you are ok. What is your dexta scan? Was that the bone density scan you had?
Will be keeping your family all in my prayers. You guys really got hit hard this year!

Zoey is just beautiful, I hope you can get her to the vet soon....Is she part dobbie, part Lab??? I know that Dobermans can be very sensitive to chemicals, and such, could she have eaten something bad for her? She has a worried look and she  looks like she must be a great friend, very sweet! I'm praying things will go well for you today...I know sometimes when it rains it pours!!!Here is wishing you sunny,peace filled days!!!!

Oh no, Julie.  I didn't realize Zoey was sick.  I'm going to say prayers for your doggie.  I know how sad I get when Grizzly is in a bad way.  Chris

Hey Julie....I'm so sorry I haven't been around much to keep up with what's going on, and Man!   There's a lot going on.   Poor Zoey!   I'm going to have to keep reading to see what's going on with her!    And if BIL left....

Keepin all of you in my prayers on the smoke, Zoey, You, Rick, your MIL. I hope and pray your BIL does indeed leave in the morning. He is a very sick individual that in my opinion is beyond help right now. (Hugs) Indigo
