Thank you all for your kind words, thoughts and prayers. Dom and i appreciate all of you. Strangers who are friends.
We had a very long night yesterday. I had my hand on his body almost the whole night. Just wanted to know that he's still with me. Silly me. I was afraid that he'll just drift off.
Both of us just tossed around a lot. A lot of tears. A lot to stomach in a day. The thought of losing a family fellow is just not acceptable at this moment. The crying's all done now. Its no point crying and puffy eyes are horrible in the morning. Even your face gets puffed up. We do not want bags under them eyes to be permanent residents.
We had some rain early in the morning.. some cooler air. Thank you again for all the rain that you guys sent to us. We do know some of you are doing some raindances for us :)
Dom is a fighter. He has always been a tough one. Under the curly shell, he is a tough fella. He doesn't make a fuss even when he's unwell. He'll just hide under the table and sleep it away. As long as he's eating something, i am fine. He's handfed most of the time. If he doesn't eat, his legs will go weak.
He is a bit wobbly today. We went for a carride as the vet has advised me not to stress him with walks. He needed help to get up to the car today. He looked at me with those tired eyes. I just lifted him up. I used to just say UP and he'll be up on the carseat in a jiffy. We sent dad to church and we went to see mom there. We asked mom to help him get better.
Overnight he has become a very tired old dog. He used to be so full of life. The life of the party.
I've got both my siblings very worried with my post yesterday. My apologies to both of them. My youngest sister was the one who rescued Dom from the boarders. We adopted Dom as she kept insisting that we should take him. Dom always have a soft spot for her as he knows that it was my sister that got him a forever home. He love her to bits.
Someone told me that an enlarged heart can be reduced or go back to normal with medications and the water out from the lungs. We are hopeful that Dom will be better soon.
I got all these cookie cutters from one our trips. Some are dog motifs. I got them especially for both Piper and Dom as i wanted to make them cookies. I never got around to making them cookies as i am just very lazy. We'll make some tomorrow.
Currently i am reading The Greatest Miracle in the World by Og Mandino. Yes.. the book which fell into the loo :) The book will help us find some balance.
"I had the blues... because i had no shoes... until upon the street,... I met a man who had no feet."
When you begin feeling sorry for yourself... remember that.
