FRANKLIN'S TUMMY DOESN'T FEEL SO GOOD

Gentle Readers . . . and Maxwell,

Let's start with the good news:

  1. Favorite Young Man fixed the leaky furnace. The PVC pipe was indeed clogged, but the PVC pipe I checked was the wrong pipe. Thank you for knowing which pipe is which, FYM.
  2. Penelope made a noise today. She hasn't barked yet, but after she ate supper, she made a sound kind of like a moo crossed with a bray. My pretty Penny spoke her first word.


Let's finish with the not so good news:

  1. Franklin awoke me this morning. I could see he felt panicky. Then I smelled why felt panicky.
  2. Doggy diarrhea.
  3. When Franklin ain't happy, ain't nobody happy. It's pouring now, and he's out in the rain, doing what must be done.

Hang in there, Frankie. If we need to visit Dr. Chick, we will. 

I'll continue to play catch up. 


Infinities of love,

Janie Junebug

  2. What a dismal combination, a dog with diarrhea on a rainy day. I'm very sorry,Janie. I hope it runs its course and you and Franklin can both get some sleep tonight. I am happy to learn that Penny has started making promising sounds. I hope she continues to develop into the kind of pet companion you were hoping she'd be.

    1. If you'd like to come down here to clean the bedroom rug, then you'd be most welcome.

  7. Aw Franklin, sometimes it is just impossible to make it where you need to be. Feel better. Hooray for someone's new voice!

  8. Animal vocalizations are so different. I've had cats who talked constantly. My current cat very seldom speaks. I've had dogs who bark to announce everything. The current dog only barks in her sleep.

  9. Feel better soon Franklin! (My vet has me give the pooches a spoonful of yogurt with active cultures in their grub 2-3 times a week. It's worked wonderfully, haven't had any episodes of vomiting or diarrhea since we started it!)

  12. Oh I despise that panicky look that they get when sick. It breaks my heart. So bo boo !
    Pretty Pretty Penelope must be settling in if she made a noise. Sweet baby boo.
    You take care too.

    1. Oh, parsnip, I know how you feel. When my beloved Faulkner the smooth collie died in 2010, I gathered some of his fur. I keep it in an envelope.

  13. Poor Franklin. I hope his tummy recovers soon. Glad to hear FYM knows his way around a PVC pipe!

    1. FYM is a gift from God. He knows his way around more than a PVC pipe. He's my favorite person with whom I converse about books and movies.

  14. I hope you feel better soon dear Franklin. Going to the vet is no fun, but you know the vet can make your tummy feel much better.

  15. Doggy diarrhea is never nice for the dog and the human just saying, I hope Franklin is feeling better by the time I wrote this

  16. That's a great breakthrough with Penny! Sorry about Franklin and I hope he's better now. Metronidazole clears up doggie diarrhea in no time. You need a prescription from the vet, though. We always keep a supply on hand.
