Snicker Doodle

We have a 1 1/2 year old miniature dachshund/poodle mix named Snicker Doodle (Snickers for short). Since we got married shes been living with my inlaws because our landlords don't allow pets on the premises, and this was the only place available at the time. So until we find a pet friendly home, she has to stay with nanny & papaw, lol.

Well, about 2 months ago, my M-inlaw took her for her checkup (we were out of town) and we told her beforehand that they will tell her to stop feeding her table scraps, because not only does it make her fat, it could make her really sick. And like I told her, they did, they said no table scraps, she needs to lose a few lbs, blahblahblah. They got better about feeding her and she'd lost the weight she needed too....

Then yesterday they decide to give her a hotdog.... ugh. Guess what. That 50 cent hotdog cost me $100 in vet bills today. She was vomiting, and had horrible diarhhea... my poor puppy. :(

They gave her antibiotics through an iv, and gave her a camel hump. A camel hump is when they need to get an animal hydrated, but can't because they vomit the fluids instead. So they take an iv, stick it underneath the dog's skin and the water drips in slowly making a water pouch, just like a camel hump. It's kinda gross actually, but it made her feel better! I have to keep her on a strict diet this weekend and next week, and hopefully after that she'll be back to her old self!

Maybe the inlaws will finally realize that dogs are supposed to eat DOG food and humans are supposed to eat HUMAN food.

"Humble yourselves, therefore, under God's mighty hand, that he may lift you up in due time. Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you."
I Peter 5:6-7
