Our Lucy has always had a "delicate" GI system. Several times a year she will pick up "stuff" during her walks and will have urgency and diarrhea. For quite a while the episodes would last several days. Thanks to a recommendation from another doggie blogger (sorry I can't remember who), we now have a perfect system that resolves the symptoms much more quickly. When Lucy has a loose stool, we omit her next meal. Then we give her canned pumpkin for several meals rather than her usual food. We also give her a probiotic every day. Now the episodes resolve in less than twenty-four hours and we don't have the middle-of-the-night urgency to go outside.
Since the weather has been so hot and Lucy has not felt well, we have not gone further than our neighborhood walks and hanging around the yard.
Ellie sits as soon as I put the camera to my face.
You can see that Lucy is still not quite herself.
She starts to climb up on a rock but decides not to complete the climb.
This little rock is just the right size for Ellie. She looks out in the waning sunlight.
The girls are quite anxious to get back inside. You see...it's almost dinner time. I'm glad to say that Lucy is back to her active little self again.
The quote for the week comes from French author and Nobel Prize winner Andre Gide as he wrote about respect: (which seems more and more lost in our society)
"There are admirable potentials in every human being. Believe in your strength and your truth. Learn to repeat endlessly to yourself, 'It all depends on me.'"
HAVE A WONDERFUL WEEKEND, EVERYONE!!!
