I've Been Busy

(That's what Mom wanted me to say when really, she has been the one that has been so busy)

I guess I should let you all know how the throwing up has been. Mom got some advice from the comments (thank you all!!) and started giving me tiny, late night meals. That seemed to do the trick. I am slightly mad that I had to go on the antibiotics and pee everywhere when someone did so much as to smile at me. Either way, I am happy to not be throwing up anymore!

On to bad, but good news. A couple of weeks ago I was finally able to go to the doggie park! I had a blast until the very end when I hurt my front leg. I was limping like an old man and mom had to carry me out of there! She got some advice from a very nice Vet Tech that happened to be there. The lady said I should rest for a few days (no playing! boo!) and see what happens. Well the rest did the trick! After about three days I was walking fine. Then - some limping started back up. This was off an on for a while. Sometimes I was running around no problem and sometimes I couldn't even touch my leg to the ground. Mom finally said that that was enough and we went to the vet yesterday. She gave me a nice massage to try and feel anything that could be wrong. Nothing. She came to the conclusion that it is either a sprain-joint or growing pains (because she said I was the perfect age for those to start). Either way, she gave me some anti-inflammatory meds and no playing for two weeks! TWO WEEKS!!! What am I going to do?

And just for the record, when I wasn't having to rest, I was doing some re-decorating for mom.
I have been turning this...

Into this...

Just popping in to let everyone know I'm still alive and kicking! No worries, mom has been too busy to even let me near her puter. She says I can write all day long tomorrow, so be on the look out!

From My Mom....

Hey everyone, it's Maeby's mom. She is sleeping soundly right now and I didn't want to bother her, but I did want to let everyone know a few things.

Maeby had a vet visit this past weekend. She graduated from her puppy plan and now has all of her shots! We are excited about that. She weighed in at 22 lbs and she isn't even four months old yet! (She will turn four months on Thursday!)

I mentioned to the vet that Maeby tends to wake up in the middle of the night gagging and heaving quite often, but rarely throws up. We aren't sure exactly what this is or why it is happening, but we have some meds and antibiotics for her. The antibiotics are making her a Peeing Machine! We go out to use the bathroom about five times the normal times out. And sometimes (like four times yesterday) she can't hold it to the door and pees in the apartment. Woops. I'm trying to be ok with this because in the beginning it was my fought for not taking her out more and she is just a baby, she doesn't know better. Well, she does know better not to do that in the house, but the antibiotics must make her have to go so bad she risks getting in trouble just to relieve herself. Poor baby. I feel bad, I really do. So, that is were we are right now.

It's been rainy around here (we need it), but Maeby hasn't been able to run around outside and I can see her getting fed up with just playing in the house. So hopefully soon she will be able to take a break from peeing and write a post - until then, you all take care!

**And if any of you mommys and daddys have comments about antibiotics or the gagging, I would love to hear about it!
