    Bragging about my dogs

    I have been sick for two days, weak, dizzy and throwing up and the dogs have been such a comfort. Zoey only left my side to go potty or eat. They didn't even bug me to go for walks. Yesterday when DH had an appointment, all five were in the bedroom with me. Abby, Molly and Zoey on the bed, Kate on the other bed and Princess on the floor between the two. Zoey has been so good, even laid in the doorway waiting while I threw up. I hadn't eaten anything I could keep down but last night I had a toasted English Muffin. I only ate half and wrapped the other piece in my napkin and put on the bedside table. I got up in the middle of the night and as I sat down in the bathroom Zoey and my muffin went whissing by. I must be getting well as Zoey is back to being naughty.

    First Mother K9 suggests seeing a doctor if you aren't better today.

    Second I am rotfl.gif at Zoey whizzing by with your food. Naughty girl!!!!

    I always find it interesting how the dogs behaviour changes when we aren't well. They are so intuitive.
    I remember being at my wits end with Chase. I'd be miserable and swaddled in throws on the couch and he would continuously bring me a darned ball to throw. I thought his behaviour was callous. icon_lol.gif
    A trainer friend of mine said it made perfect sense to her. He was ball crazy and a ball always made him feel better so he was just sharing the comfort.

    What good babies you have. icon_cool.gif

    Connie, maybe Zoey thought you were thanking her for all her attentiveness while you were sick?

    Oh, oh, hey, maybe she was HELPING you get rid of the English muffin you couldn't finish? icon_biggrin.gif

    I second K9, though - definitely consider seeing a doctor - you take one of the puppy babies if they were this sick, wouldn't you? icon_wink.gif

    OK...this officially makes it three recommendations that you see a doc if you are not better today.... Kris is right, you would take one of your "nursing staff" if they were unwell. Speaking of "nursing staff".... cats can fill that role too. Shadow is my own personal "nurse kitty". She can tell when I am not feeling well and will be especially attentive and careful around me. A few years ago I broke my leg and messed my knee up VERY badly. I was in a specially made brace that kept my leg extended and I was seriously hurting. I was either in bed or in the recliner. Shadow, who loves to walk over me, on me etc and prefers to lie down ON me when possible immediately became very very careful about my leg but spent even more time with me, purring and cuddling with me. Stella, however, had to be "Mr Squirty-ed" away from the brace! As soon as I was home with it she jumped up onto the bed ONTO my leg icon_eek.gif My scream only deterred her briefly! She thought the brace was for her enjoyment.... icon_rolleyes.gif

    Now back to our regular programming.... hope you are feeling better and if not you will get to the doc! icon_cool.gif

    Okay my posts aren't always showing up. Thanks everybody and I am feeling better today - not 100%, but better, not dizzy and best of all am keeping my oatmeal down. What I said in my last post to Kris was that - yeah right Zoey was just helping by stealing my muffin. icon_smile.gif

    I know dogs are better than cats ... however, when I hurt my knee and could barely walk; all 3 were by my side on the sofa. Literally licking my ace bandage; NO jumping, NO wining, NO getting into anything. They were amazingly well behaved.

    Yes, our fur babes do know when something is wrong. Even those non-sociable kitties.
    They do care in their own way.

    It's so cool the way they know you need a little extra TLC and especially neat when independent cats comfort you.

    My big guy Ernie is my rock. Whenever I'm sick or feeling low, he just knows. He sticks to me like glue on a regular basis, but if I'm sick, it's even more so. If I get up and go to the bathroom if I'm sick, he is right outside the door waiting for me. And not laying down either, he is sitting there. If my bathroom were bigger, he would be IN there with me. icon_lol.gif He's better than my husband when it comes to me being sick. icon_lol.gif Ernie acts the same for DH when he is sick, also.
