Well, folks I've been away for a while...busy with this Virus-Monster, but, we had a scare with Bailey. And, I thought I'd give you an update. Last week, Bailey got off the bed at 3:30 in the morning, I woke up enough to notice and was drifting off when I heard the retching noises from downstairs. I got up and found my poor girl had wedged herself between a table, my desk chair and my desk...a very small spot for a big dog. Her nose was under my desk. She was trying to throw up and hide. I got her out and up, but she was wobbling like a drunk. And a tear...a tear...rolled down her cheek. Dogs don't cry. It broke my heart and frightened me to my core. I got my husband up, called the Animal Emergency, and off we went. They ran every test in the book, and took x-rays, and, THANK GOD, it wasn't bloat! But, what it was, they don't really know. She doesn't eat stuff off the ground, and she had been having good poops and eating her homemade food, which I cook for her. We were there for hours. The staff said she was an excellent patient, as good as gold, and non-threatening, which they applauded her being so large and potentially dangerous and afraid. SUCH A GOOD GIRL!!! In the end, we went home after they gave her an anti nausea shot, and we are to go to family vet this week. NOW! HERE IS THE REASON I AM TELLING YOU THIS! The bill was almost $1,000 dollars! But, we had Dog Insurance! So, we were capable of getting every test available, and the best care available to protect our precious family member. We didn't have to wait it out hoping, we could act! And I already have my 80% back, deposited to my account. If you don't have insurance, Get It. The peace of mind is worth it. I don't intend on saying goodbye to my girl until I've run out of options, and it is my final act of love to let her go. That's my advice to all of you.
