A few days ago our little LuLu had an episode of all-night vomiting that ultimately turned bloody. Blood from the other end, too. Don't worry, that's as graphic as I'm going to get. She was a very sick little girl and we were all worried about her, including Wally. She's better now, but we're keeping her relatively quiet and on a restricted diet for the time being. Our vet believes she has gastric ulcers, which are fairly common in Golden Retrievers. It would explain a lot. Did you know dogs can take omeprazole (generic Prilosec)? Always check with your vet first, of course.
Wally is giving her plenty of tender loving care. They melt my heart. When I'm sick (thankfully not often) they give me this same kind of therapy. It's why I like living in our Golden Retriever bubble. It's peaceful here.
I routinely receive emails from Shutterfly -- "Your memories from this week six years ago", etc. It prompts me to click and revisit those stored images. I always think I have my favorites on calendars and in photo books, but there are so many of Wally and LuLu, and when I look at them with fresh eyes the "awwws" just keep coming. I brought the photo below back to the computer.
Six years ago this week. Love.
