Sick dog

Goose poop is deceitful. For something so delicious, so flavorful, so amazingly tasty, it is demon spawn and most likely related to those evil ones (cats). I've been good for weeks. I drop ("out") the poop that accidentally lands in my mouth, and "leave it" when I'm caught eying the tempting morsels. I would sneak a piece, but what's the harm? Heck, there are dogs who graze and consume gallons of bird waste, with no problems. Me? One little piece, and I spend 4 days pacing and whining because of constant diarrhea and tummy cramps. For three solid nights, crazy lady would take me outside every hour. Neither of us slept. The vet (and test results) said it was due to bad bacteria from the goose poop. The antibiotics are helping; and crazy lady has been giving me warm baths to reduce the muscle cramps. I eat the bland chicken and white rice, and stare at my friends playing in the park. No fun for me (or crazy lady) this week.

I hate when that happens. I like the demon's (cats) poop personally and yeah it makes me a bit sick too. I haven't had goose poop since Golden Gate Park.

Sugar, my love...you have only yourself to blame! silly girl. we have coyote poop here that is delectable, but we're not allowed to eat it either. we also have Wild Pig/Boar poop. did we mention we saw one 300 feet away last week on our walk? Juno's training collar broke just as we saw it. thankfully, her leash was hooked up to 2 collars, a back up as well. othewise, we'd never see Juno again. she wouldn't stand a chance w/a 300 lb wild boar... sigh. get better soon sugar. and stop giving your mom agida with worry!
hugs,
Loki, Juno with their Wild Dingo mom typing this for them...
