Thankful Thursday

I wanted to start off by saying THANK YOU to everyone that has commented or checked in, not only here on the blog, but on my Facebook page as well. The amount of support over the last 24 hours has been amazing and I am grateful. As I've talked about Lilo being sick, people will roll their eyes and I have heard comments about are you talking about a person? Some people have a hard time grasping the idea that some of do really love our pets. For me, I don't have human children. Lilo is my baby and the thought of anything happening to her is devestating. I am so grateful that I can log on here and know that everyone understands exactly how I feel!!!! It makes things seem a little easier to deal with.

Now for an update on The Rock Eater: The vomitting stopped about 9:30 lst night. We took her to another vet as ours is closed on Wednesdays. They gave her an antinausea shot that really didn't seem to work. We got about 3/4 of a cup of water with her antobiotic disolved in it into her. We also got a Benadryl into her. About half an hour later, she was lying on the couch breathing easily and peacefully. She slept through the night and gladly rolled over for belly rubs this morning when I checked on her!! Unfortunately, I had to go back to work today. Ryan told me this morning that while she was still turning down food, she attacked the water bowl and did her camel pug impression. She went out adn pottied 3 times and was even feeling frisky enough to kick up some dirt when she was done =). I will tempt her with food again when I get home and hopefully, she will eat. I'm not asking for a full meal, just something!!!
Thank you all again for unfailing support, thoughts and prayers!!! They are so very appreciated!
I'll leave you with one of my favorites. She looks like she's about ready to sass me as Walter and Heather would say.

Until next time . . .
Pugs & Kisses

We are so sorry we did not see yesterday's post so we could have sent our good wishes too. But it is wonderful to see that there are signs of improvement. Our Mom knows very well how we all worry about our kids, furkids included. We send our best wishes for Lilo to feel better very soon.

Hugs, the OP Pack

Salinger The Pug said...

YAY! We're glad the news is sounding better than yesterday!

Give that Lilo some puggy kisses from us and tell her to knock it off with the sassing! ;-)


Sequoia & Petunia said...

We hope you eat something tonight! Get betters!

Pearl said...


I've been thinking about you sweetie! When I get sick, Momma pretty much loses her mind and acts insane. Non-dog people (aka losers) think she's crazy... but we don't care! That's what blog friends are for- we all love our dogs like children!

I hope you take some food tonight!


Hank said...

SOOOO glad Lilo is making progress!

PS "Other people" are so stupid sometimes. Have they never SEEN a sick living creature????

Arlo the Pug said...

Arlo and I are soo glad lilo is feeling better. We were worried. Those people that rolled their eyes are just dumb. Arlo is my baby too, and i totally understand your love for lilo. that is one thing I love about the blog community, we aren't looked down upon for loving our pets!

Stella and Gunther said...

Great news about Lilo!!

We're keeping our paws crossed she continues to get better.


Bijou said...

Oh my! I somehow missed your post yesterday. I'm sorry you are not feeling well Lilo. We will be thinking of you and hoping the medicine helps you get well real soon.


Stubby said...

I'm so glad that Lilo is starting to feel better. Mom goes crazy- psycho whenever I get sick and you're right - some people just don't get it. I'm her (and Dad's) baby and they would do anything for me. I'm more important than anyone or anything to them and I love them for it.

I suggest you get some Popeye's chicken for Lilo because that stuff could get me out of a coma. Delicious!

Stubby xoxo

We're so sorry to hear that Lilo isn't feeling well but it's good that she is showing some improvement today. We will cross our paws and send purrs that she continues to get better since we know exactly what it's like to have a baby sick even if it's one with fur! Give Lilo a hug from us!

Oh Lilo, we's was so worried about yous. My mum was wondering why you are called rock eater! My mum also understands as she says I am her furry child and would be devastated if something happened to me's. I am glads to hear you are doing a bit better. Please remember not to eat anything strange... specially rocks, omd rocks.. actually, how do they taste? I am curious, no no I can't try it mum will flips on me! Here is a little secret, I ate a foam earplug once and my cat sibling ate an elastic band. Thank dogness nothing extremely bad happened. Mum is careful now with those objects. Sometimes though, we's just get curious specially if I feels hungry.

Liss said...

I could go on forever but to make it short I can't stand people who make comments like that. I totally understand where you are coming from. I don't have human children, but I'm a pet mom, a proud pet mom, I'd shout to the world. I love my pets and when they are sick or hurt my heart breaks. I'm glad Lilo is improving and pray she continues to get better.

Pug(s) and Bugg said...

Glad you are starting to feel better Lilo. Hope you are back to eating TONS of treatables in no time!!!!

Tweedles -- that's me... said...

Come on now get better- you can do it!
My moms go insane if something is wrong with me too,
People just have no understanding of pet love

keeping paws crossed and sending pug prayers for you

Punchbugpug said...

So glad she is on the mend. I can't begin to tell you the stuff we tried to entice Marty with when he was sick. I threw away more stuff that four days! Towards the fourth day I thought he was actually enjoying my antics!

We know what you mean, it's great to have understanding friends! Those that don't get it are frankly hard to understand!

Benny and Lily said...

Sounds great..come on Lilo. Tell momma try the rice and cottage cheese. It works.
Benny & Lily
Tell momma she could feel sad here anytime cuz we understand

Fiona, as typed by Dr. Liz said...

Mom has been a slacker on letting me catch up on bloggies, so we missed that Lilo was sickie. I am so glad that Lilo is doing better - the sickies are No Fun!

*kissey face*

Pee Eee: Mom COMPLETELY understands how you feel; she even refers to TaiChi and Bufus and myself as her kids. Duh! What else would she call us? :-)

Lilo we are so very happy that you are starting to feel better. We don't like it when one of our furiends is sick because it is no fun being sick and the Mommies worry about us a lot. We will continue to pray that you keep getting better and get your appetite back.

Chihuahua kisses,
The Munchkins & Mommy

The Devil Dog said...

We are glad Lilo is feeling better, and we totally understand how there are some dumb as rocks people out there who don't get love, be it a person or a pet. We love the blogosphere for that reason as well.
