I'm sorry 2 of the pictures yesterday didn't work! They are working now, but here is my favorite one of her so far:
Her tongue is out like this probably 95% of the time. She has the CUTEST personality and we are just crazy about her. But yesterday wasn't such a good day for her and it broke my heart! I won't go into too much detail, but the poor girl was having some stomach issues when she was going to the bathroom. This started Wednesday night. It continued Thursday and she was acting normal except that she didn't want to eat anything. Around 5:30, she started throwing up. And it was so pitiful because she would just go in her crate and lay down because she knew what she did was "bad" but we weren't mad at her at all! I knew she couldn't help that she was sick.
We figured it was just her body's reaction to a big change in her life, since Boxers have sensitive tummies and she didn't have any symptoms before we adopted her. So last night around 9, I decided I couldn't watch her feel bad anymore and I had to do something about it. We took her to the emergency vet, where she got an IV and a shot for anti-nausea and she felt great right after! I may have cried a couple times when they wouldn't let me go back with her...she was so scared! It was a late night for me and Doug, but she has felt great since and has actually been very hungry today. So I'm happy to report our girl is back to normal...just in time for a fun weekend meeting the family!
One thing last night made me so happy. She was nervous in the vet's office, and she would just climb up on my lap and want me to hold her. Then, when they came to get her for the IV, she wouldn't go with them. They told me that I could walk with her there, and as soon as I started, she was walking right beside me. The guy asked, "You just adopted her 24 hours ago? Wow...she's already attached!"
So am I :-) We love our little girl!
