Thank you, everyone!

Sam is doing much better tonight, to our relief. He is eating with his usual apetite, wants to play, and overall is feeling like his old self. He still seems plagued by the runs, but even that is looking better (I won't go into details!). We are still concerned about why he was sick, though. One minute he was prancing around being silly, and then all of the sudden he laid down and was ill. We might be over reacting, but he is our boy and we love him.

Sam definitely needs a good thorough brushing!


We want to thank everyone for their well wishes! It really helped us to read everyone's pawsitive thoughts and kind words. ...and most importantly of all,

Sam thanks you!

  2. When Dom had some runny poos after boarding, i boiled some rice.. with lots of water for him. I just made him drink the water from the boiled rice. It helps.

    It works for humans too. Cos when you are too sick to eat, some water from the boiled rice helps to line the stomach.

    Am glad Sam is all well now. Big hugs to Sammy boy.

  3. Could he have eaten a frog? I once had a dog who did that and it was a mess!

  8. I am so glad Sam is feeling better. I have lots of stomach issues, too. My vet thinks it is stress related, but I also have to stay on a bland diet.

    Your pal, Pip

  15. Glad Sam is better. This type of thing happens every so often with our Lucy. I'm convinced that she manages to pick up something like an acorn or rabbit poop that causes it. She'll have diarrhea for a day or so and then will be fine. Our vet recommended a 24-hour fast (allowing only rice water) when it happens. It's rather strange because I take her for a walk alone while my husband feeds Ellie. Lucy is totally confused as to why she can smell dog food on Ellie's breath.

  16. Sam, we are so happy to hear you are doing better. Mom says she so understands the desire to know "why", that plagues her about Phantom. Stay well, pal.

  30. So glad he is feeling better! Last week, my one Sibe, Gibson, suddenly got sick too, vomiting, wouldn't eat...took a few days and he is back to himself. I never figured out why either, but I think the sudden change in weather doesn't help - it jumped from the high 60s to almost 90 in one day. Needless to say, he's been basking in the kitchen in the A/C for days now! May Sam continue to feel good!

  31. PS - Also, JackDaddy could be right - we suspected that one of ours ate a frog last year - nasty sick, but did get better on a boiled chicken & rice diet after a few days. So many icky things out there when the weather gets warmer. Be well! Husky hugs!

  34. I am sorry you were not feeling well Sam, but very glad you are feeling better. My Mom says it is that time of year -- we eat stuff we shouldn't and the temperature keeps changing.

  35. Oh Sam - we are glad you are feeling better, and hope the rest gets back to normal again soon. It's no fun being sick, and it worries the humans so much. Take care buddy :)
