Vet Time

But not for a good reason like shots or nail clippings. I kenneled her last weekend while Justin and I went to California. I picked her up on Monday. She was happy to see me but she also slept from 5pm to 5:30 am! She didn't eat dinner or drink anything. She was tired!

The next day we noticed her bark was really raspy and soft. She was still tired and didn't have the energy she used to have. So we figured that she spent the weekend awake and barking at all the other dogs to shut up (she's been known to do that).

Yesterday she didn't want me to pet her back. Then I noticed why. She has little bumps all over the back of her neck and down her spine. You can really see them since her hair is usually smooth and shiney. Now it's bumpy and yucky! She's obviously in pain so now I have to take her to the vet today.

I had a choice in what to do with her that weekend. Send her off to a friends house (who doesn't have a dog). But then I run the risk of her bolting and getting hit by a car. She's done that before at his house. OR kennel her where she'll most likely get sick. Death or sick. I think I'll take the bumps. I'll keep y'all updated on whatever this condition is.
