Sadderday

About a month ago, Daniel got a new dog. We have always had our sweet Tux, but now we have rowdy, rambunctious, playful, and wild Bo to go with him.

Bo is a really pretty, 2 year old yellow lab. Daniel just loves him! They play and go for walks every day. I have never seen Daniel so excited about an animal!

Last night, Bo got sick. He was throwing up and he wouldn't eat. He was even throwing up the water he drank! Of course, Daniel was so worried. He called the vet out and the vet said that it looks like Bo had eaten something he shouldn't have. He could feel sticks in his stomach! Poor baby...

He said to keep our eye on the dog, and give him a call this morning to let him know how Bo is doing. Well, he wouldn't even get up when we went outside this morning. His tummy hurts a lot and he is just miserable.

To make a long story short, Bo has a bowel obstruction because he ate Tux's collar plus a mixture of sticks and pine cones. He is having surgery this morning. Either the vet can get the collar out, or he will have to put Bo down if there is too much damage. Daniel is just as depressed as I have ever seen him. Tux is running around frantically looking for his buddy. I am so worried about all my boys.

So, whether you are the type that prays for animals or not, please remember my little family today. I will let you know as soon as I know something.

Oh no!
I will definitely be thinking about your little family today. I'm so sorry for Daniel, too!

Hope everything "comes out okay" so to speak.

they took the collar out, but they had to cut his intestines in 6 places. if they just had to make one incision, his chances would be better, but the risk of infection is high with that many cuts. vet says 50/50 chance.
