Typically in the morning, I go through my Reader to see what’s been going on in the world of those I follow. This morning, I can barely keep my attention there. I’m worried.
I’m worried about our Sammie girl. Last night, we took her on a walk and when we got to the field/woods behind our apartment, off she went. She was gone for what seemed like FOREVER, and the trouble was, we could see exactly where she was. She must have found something down there that interested her more than coming back to us. Well, as a result, when she did finally come up, Aaron was M-A-D and put her in her kennel straight away, where she stayed there the rest of the night. At 12:30am, I woke to Sammie whining and pawing at her kennel incessantly. I let her out and she drank about a bowl and a half of water! Aaron reminded me that too much water could also cause bloat, so I took her out to potty, which she did. She then went to her kennel and was quiet the rest of the night.
This morning, she peed and pooped like normal, but her demeanor was different. Maybe it’s because she could tell Aaron was still upset with her. After he left for work, she went to her crate and just laid there. I even had trouble coaxing her out, and when she did finally come out, it was for a brief amount of time. Her tummy does seem distended (not quite to the extent it was during our last scare, but enough that I noticed it), but it doesn’t hurt her.
Did she get into something that made her tummy swell last night? Or was it me letting her drink all that water? Is she laying in her kennel like that because she’s depressed about her guy being mad at her or because she’s sick? If it’s because she’s sick, how sick is she? Is it, “I don’t feel good because I ate something I wasn’t supposed to” sick or “I’m bloated and I need to go to the vet ASAP” sick?
I guess I’ll find out at lunch… These next 3 hours are going to be torture, so maybe I’ll go early. Anyone out there who can calm me down??
