Having shared that our beagle girl was unwell, I am now happy to report that she is Much Improved. By Sunday night, she was clearly feeling better, and today she measured well on all points: she demanded her walk; she ate happily; she tried to eat all sorts of detritus on our walk (you try to stop her!); and she successfully took care of doggy business.
I called the vet's office on Monday, and we think her latest problem was due to our making an abrupt switch from the hamburger / rice diet back to her regular dog food. We did try to switch gradually, but apparently it wasn't gradual enough. So we will try again, but Much More Carefully. She was a miserable pup on Sunday, and I don't want her to go through that again.
Note to Bonnie: It would be helpful if you would refrain from eating everything that doesn't eat you first. I suppose that is too much to ask.
On another note... did you know there is A Method to folding fitted sheets? I have always just crossed my fingers, and when the folded sheet looked good, I wondered, "Huh. How did I do that? What are the odds I'll ever do it again? Should I display this marvel on the coffee table, instead of hiding it in the linen closet?"
Well. Wonder no more. The Internet has the answer!
