It is a NEW YEAR.

Well here we are again at a Friday morning.

May 15, 2020.

We started out here in Edmonton with a beautiful sunrise and what I thought was going to be a sunshiny day but then turned to clouds.

I cannot remember what the forecast was for today other than the temperature was/is to be plus 17 degrees celsius.

Which is not bad temperature wise.

 

My poor boy is under “the weather.”

Starting on Tuesday he had some wicked gas attacks.

I feared something was on the way.

On Wednesday on our way home from our afternoon/after work walk, he fell to a bout of diarrhea.

He did eat all of his supper.

He did not appear to be too out of sorts (for him).

Yesterday morning he only ate half of his breakfast and a bit of banana.

He had two bouts of diarrhea.

One in the morning before I started work and the other mid afternoon while my son-in-law dropped by with some chicken breasts and white rice for the boy.

Yesterday morning I reached out to my daughter about possibly picking up those items for Alvin.

My son-in-law was able to pick up and bring over.

We had a little visit.

So nice to see him, it has been awhile.

I think my daughter’s birthday in March.

So last night for supper Alvin had chicken breasts and white rice for supper.

He is back on the bland diet for a few days while whatever it is runs the course.

Jenn from the Vet’s office called to remind me of his appointment today at 2 p.m.

I immediately informed her of Alvin’s condition and she agreed to put him on the chicken and rice.

They will also put him on probiotics which should help.

My poor baby.

He will be on a strict chicken and rice.

I deliberately did not have banana this morning with breakfast as it is his favourite and I did not wish to taunt him.

That would not have been fair.

I have decided it may be wise especially with his age that I put him on a strict diet.

Only his regular food, his treats that I pick up from the vet’s office.

No longer he can have special treats from family and friends.

Even the Vet’s office suggested it may be allergies.

Dogs in age can develop allergies so not uncommon.

Better to be safe than having him go through this ….

He is a trooper but I can only imagine how he must feel although he does loves chicken and rice.

So that part is good for him and makes him happy.

I am with fingers crossed that his poop is more firm this morning and hopefully he will go.

He has not as yet which is odd for him.

Perhaps things are just settling down.

Well time to go and get that coffee and sign on for work.

I have a meeting this morning and one after lunch just before I am leaving early for Alvin’s appointment.

 

So happy Friday one and all.

I hope that you have a great day and long weekend.

I suppose not everyone everywhere has a long weekend for Victoria Day.

I get that …..

But have a great weekend …..

 

Take care, stay healthy.

Be kind.

Show kindness and respect to all creatures big and small.

 

I/We Remain,

As Always, Carol  & Alvin

 

P.S. sorry for my post to be all about “poo” …… such as my life at this moment.
