Today I am grateful for
Roxie the dog!
My dog that used to be Larry’s faithful companion. She chose him. Loves men more than women.
I am grateful that the bland diet of chicken breast and rice is working and she is no longer showing bright red stuff in her poo. (Yes, gross, but has been a source of worry the past few days).
I am grateful for my friend Nikki who did an online search as I was bawling like a baby to find links about what might be Roxie’s problem… and possible solutions.
I am grateful for my neighbor Dave who prays for Roxie and cried tears of joy yesterday over normal poo. I am also grateful that he takes her for walks every day and loves her, probably more than I do. She loves him too.
I am grateful for my friends and family who have texted for Roxie reports, listened as I provided poo updates and cried when I was worried that she might be on her way to join Larry and her brother Rusty.
I am happy that I found out that the damn dog has been licking up thistle seeds that the finches drop from the feeder. Probably the cause of her poo problem.
She’s doing well now. Loving her new food. Still spoiled rotten. Soon she’ll have normal food worked slowly back into her diet and hopefully all poo will be well.
