Truffle is really sick...

early this evening Truffle got sick and threw-up all of her doggy dinner. Mommy picked her up and she was shaking horribly and her body was super hot to the touch.

That was 4 hours ago and Truffle is still shaking. Mommy took her temperature (we wont discuss how this was done) and it was 103.8 degrees Fahrenheit. So mommy went to the store and bought infant Tylenol (like the doctor told her to do when i was sick and we gave her the proper amount.

Her ears wont perk up and her tail is glued down. she only walks when she has to and she does it with a moping head like Eore from Winnie The Pooh.

Right now we have already given her a cool bath to bring her temperature down but her body got really warm again so she is wrapped in a towel that is covered in ice packs. She seems to like that ice packs because she wont come out of the towel.

She doesn't seem to mind but mom is totally freaked out and wont let any of us play with her. I have snuck up and given her a couple of Coco kisses though and mommy is OK with that.

Wish us luck because we are really worried about Truffle. I foresee a long sleepless night ahead of us.

Poor little truffle!! Google says that the normal for dogs is 101-102.5 F.. so she might not be too bad. Good luck, though, it sounds like she feels down in the dumps!

Oh no,

We're so very sorry to hear that Truffle is sick.

We hope that she can get better on her own. Of course if she has to go to the doggie doctor we hope she just gives her a shot and Truffle will be ok again!

Hugs and Prayers, Tessa
