Icky, Sicky Yet Again

Mom and I had to make a couple of emergency trips outside earlier this week, in the middle of the night, of course. Mom was happy that we made it out in time, but not very happy about me still having problems with throw-ups and diarrhea poos. Since my tummy has been acting up off-an-on for about a month now, Mom seemed to think we should go to see my vet. I disagreed, but was overruled.

So we went. The vet poked me with needles and thermometers...and shined bright lights in my eyes and ears...and took pictures of my insides...and stole some blood...and who knows what else.

Then the vet told Mom that my blood has a problem and that they needed to test my liver. So Mom took me BACK to the vet the next day and she had the audacity to leave me there. It was so incredibly rude of her! She LEFT ME at the vet! Can you believe that?! (I guess Mom used to do that to my sis Lexi, too, 'cause she had liver failure problems and the vet needed to do tests.)

Anyway, the vet stole more blood from me and then tried to get on my good side by giving me some food. No way. Not happening. I showed them -- I turned my nose up at it! That's right, I refused to eat that food that the vet offered me.

Mom came at lunch time and she actually brought me take-out! She got me a hamburger and she let me have the whole hamburger patty and even part of the bun. She never lets me have that much hamburger. It was heaven...

But then Mom took me back to the vet! I couldn't believe it. I got to eat a hamburger in the car...but she left me at the vet's office again instead of taking me home! It turns out that Mom tricked me. The vet needed me to eat so they could steal more blood and finish testing my liver. Since I refused the vet's food, Mom got me take-out just to get me to eat something.

My Mom's diabolical, I'm afraid. She's sneaky. I'm going to have to watch her...

Anyway, the vet called Mom with all of the test results and there's something sicky with my liver now. We don't know what, though. It could be my allergy medicine, but we're not sure. And my tummy problems? Those could be from my allergy medicine...or maybe a food allergy or something like that...or the sicky liver problem... Mom says we don't know yet.

The good news is that I'm back on my bland diet of hamburger and rice. No kibble. I love the hamburger and rice! But I really don't know what evil plans Mom and the vet have for me next. All I do know is that there better be some good squeaky toys in this for me!!!

Since I've been sicky, I've been acting super pathetic. So, here are some super pathetic, yet super cute, pictures of me from this week...

You know that I still love my squeakies, even if I have been not feeling the best. So, before you go thinking that I'm just napping all the time, you should probably take a look at this...

That was taken after my all-day session at the vet's office. I sure missed my toys... I might be sick, but a girl's still gotta play!


  1. Hello there Buttons!

    It is good that you are enjoying lots of the hamburger rice treats. We do hope that the sicky trouble goes away SOON! We have all our paws crossed for your fast recovery. Please take care.

  2. Buttons,
    I am sorry to hear that you still have the sickies. That hamburger trick was sneaky but you cant blame Mom, she is trying to help you. I hope they figure it out soon so you will feel better and in the meantime, keep playing with the squeeky toys!! BOL


  3. Oh, Buttons, I hope you feel better soon. Girl had a little chuckle at your story--after my 2nd eye surgery, the vet offered me a piece of hot dog and I flatly refused. Girl had never seen me do that before! That night at our hotel she ordered Chinese delivered--the restaurant was flabbergasted when she ordered beef kabobs "those should be alright for my dog, right?"
    Tell your mom more hamburgers will fix you up no problem!

  4. Buttons, We are so sorry you've had so much vet time, and haven't been well. We hope that everything will be okay and soon! You look so sweet curled up in your bed...

  5. I sorry you haz belleh problems Buttons an I hopes you iz feeling better fast *softpaw*

  6. Sorry woo've been under the weather and subjekhted to all sorts of torture...

    Paws khrossed fur it to be fixed soon...

    I do think woo need more hamburgers!


  7. Oh Buttons - I do hope you will be okay. I'm going to keep my paws crossed for you big time dear friend. You know - you just have to watch those vets and oomans. The vet stole all my toothies too. Dey got some of my blood too. Wonder what the vet does with all those things - puts it all back in some other anipal????? Makes you wonder.

  8. Sorry to hear that you are not feeling well. Maybe have your mom go check out and talk to Joyce.. she is wonderful about helping to manage and cure problems with all sorts of pets.
    I buy all my food from her and whether you believe in homeopathy or not-- It has worked time and again for me and my 2 dogs and 4 cats.. even with the cows.
    It might just be something to try and see if it works. Good luck.

  9. Buttons, I hope the vet gets you better in no time. I'm so sorry you're going through this. Take care, friend!

  10. Oh Buttons I is so sorry to hear you is sick but fear not my squeeky luvin furiend the vet man will sort you out quick smart. My liver function went screwy when my tummy was not good a while back but it is all hunky dory again now so I hopes yours will do the same.
    Big huggles from me and from Moms

  11. Sorry to hear you are not feeling well also. I had a similar experience at the vet this week and may, with permission, use your paragraph about the vet poking you. They did the same stuff to me.

  12. U bettere gets betterer ASAP!
