Crappy Day

My mom has a hurtey hip again, so she came home for lunch so she could take a prescription Ibuprofen. She let me out of my crate and played with me for a while, then she put me back in my crate before she went to work.
When mom got home at 6:15, she smelled something when she walked in the door. Turns out I got an upset tummy at some point during the afternoon and had diarrhea in my crate. It was really watery, and ran all over the crate mat, so it got on my tummy, legs and feet, even though I do my best to try to stay away from the poo.
I tried to let it out in the furthest back corner of my crate, and I accidentally sprayed the back of the couch too...
Mom put my collar and leash on and took me into the bathroom. I left poopy pawprints the whole way. She had to use my collar and leash to make me get into the tub, and then she...she...gave me a bath!. It was awful.
Here I am after my bath. See how wet and spiky my fur is? I was so annoyed that mom took my picture!
Then, mom had the nerve to...not feed me any dinner!!!!! She actually said "Your tummy needs to rest and calm down." Is she crazy? At least I get to go to school tomorrow!


  1. Oh POOR Indy! Did you eat something funny that made you sick? I hope you feel better soon. Not getting dinner is just not right. Mums can be harsh sometimes. Do you want me to come over and purr to you?

    I hope your mum's hip feels better soon too.

  2. Oh Indy!! I'm sooo sorry you had a crappy day! It's no fun to have an upset tummy, but to have to endure a BATH too??? Well, that's just not right!!! And, worst of all, no dinner? I'm calling the puppy abuse officials to come and investigate your human!

    Have fun at school tomorrow. At least you will get to play with your friends!

    Maybe we should call Meeshka, attorney at claw on this abuse issue.


  3. Awww...I hope woo feel better soon. I hate it when my tummy gets upset, too. I once had it for more than two days! My mommy says it's best to let woor body clean itself out. Make sure woor mom gives woo lots of food as soon as woo get better!

    By the way, I think we live pretty close to each other! I live in Derwood, MD.

  4. awe, that is a sad story - but it is all behind you now

  5. Aw, poor Indy. Having diarrhea is bad enoguh, but then to have a bath on top of that? And NO dinner? Horrors!
    Maybe your mom could take a day off & stay wif you tomorrow. Woo might need a personal assistant till woo get your strength back.

  6. I think we go to the same mom had to switch vets because my previous one didn't want to do anything about my allergies...they said I wasn't allergic to anything when I'm actually really allergic to a lot of things. So my sister got really into holistic care, and I've been feeling so much better since then! They're really great vets.

    Where in Gaithersburg do woo live? I would love a play date!

  7. a bath and no dinner?

    We hope your pooper is better soon
