Boy When It Rains It Pours!

I haven't had much time to spend blogging lately.  My little girl Sophie has had one health issue after another.  A couple of weeks ago she hurt the disc in her back when she slipped on the floor getting out of her new bed.  I never really thought this through when we tore out all of our carpet a couple of years ago.  It is very hard on a little girl who is almost 17 yrs. old to not have carpeting.  While she was healing from her back injury all of a sudden she started acting strange.  She was very weak and leaning to one side.  Of course I freaked out and automatically thought she had a stroke.  Well, thank goodness it wasn't a stroke but something called Old Dog Vestibular Disease.  Basically it is an inner ear infection which gives you the symptoms of a stroke.  Actually my husband had an inner ear infection and spent 3 days in the hospital being tested for a stroke.  Since she hurt her back she has had to stay gated in our den.  I borrowed the area rug from my living room so she doesn't have to walk on the slippery floor.  It is so hard to see your pet look so sad. :(  We've been hand feeding her to get her to eat.  Today has been a much better day for her since she got this a week ago.  She goes back to see the doctor Tuesday so I'm keeping my fingers crossed she continues to improve.  

Have a great weekend everyone!  It was 72 here today...loving this weather!
