Holy [insert bad words].  
 [more swearing]

Katie Bell (my dog) is sick.

I've known since New Year's Eve.  She's been... off.  But yesterday she satrted walking strangely.  Like sideways, with a limp.  And running into things.  Like walls.  Or me.  It looked like she was drunk, frankly.  So I took her to the vet today.  The took blood and they gave her a steroid, and 5 new medicines, and I got her new food, and $240.00 later, she's sleeping here next to me like she always does.  On February fourth, she'll be nine years old.  I get it, she's old, and I should start preparing myself mentally for when she won't be here.  But she's older that Ethan, you know?  She's my first baby.

*waits for the vet to call with test results*

Was it Hagrid that said that people can be stupid about their pets?  Yeah, well, he was right.

Ignore my husband's very obvious bed head. 

And the next time I post, it will not be a meme or whining; I've decided to post "Persephone's Dating Saga" or:  the story of how Carrie got through college and all of the nightmare male projects that she took on, ending with getting very lucky and marrying her husband, but not before she got propositioned by his first fiancee'.  Who was a girl.  

It's a good story.  Stay tuned.

*sends Katie good vibes* Poor darling. I hope she's all right!

*cuddles Katie* I hope the vet gets her fixed up in a hurry, and that you don't have to worry about preparing yourself for quite some time. Furry love is the very best kind.

Also, can't wait to hear that story!

*hugs* My dog's eight now (which is pretty old for a boxer) so I know what you're going through. Every time that she does anything a bit odd I start worrying about her.

I hope she gets better soon :)

I think Hagrid is wrong. It's not being stupid. Your pets are members of your family. Nobody would call you stupid if your sons were ill and you were worried about them. So don't feel bad for it. I'll be thinking healthy thoughts in your dog's direction. Hopefully she will recover soon!

Poor Katie Bell.......you guys hang in there!

You know I'm pulling for her. :)

I still feel horrid for unloading on you today when you had more serious issues. *pouts a little*

Oh, there's nothing worse than a sick pet. It just rips your heart right out. They are so helpless and they can't even tell you what is really wrong. Sakes. Keep me posted.

Oh, and whine and meme away. You see the crap I throw up.

Not my sweet Katie Bell - the only dog I love.... *frowns*

I hope she's okay. :(

aw! *hugs*

and now i'm dying to hear the story!

No! Katie! I hope she gets much much better soon! Dogs are those loyal creatures that are worth the ridiculous amounts that vets charge. (Are you sure the boys didn't slip her some grog from your stockpile?)

p.s. That's Nolan's bed-head? Why can't I have his hair? Why?! I'm a girl...
p.p.s. Talking about girls... I can't wait to hear the story. I'm kinda perversely interested now.

Aww, I hope she feels better soon! It is never fun when one of your 'kids' - even the four-legged variety isn't feeling well. *hugs*

I hope the vet phones with positive news and that Katie just has a simple virus or something *hugs all of you*
