Spring time is here!
So Boba has giardia - basically a bug in her tummy that makes her have diarrhea like crazy. so we took her to to vet 2 weeks ago and finally it seemed like she was getting better but then yesterday she had runny poops again so its like another 120 dollars for meds and food. but they didnt have the right prescription food so i cooked some chicken, rice and cottage cheese and am mixing it with her regular food. my sisters think im crazy for cooking food for boba but hey if itll save us an additional 50 dollars why not. plus boba loves it. she gobbles it up. anyways the most common way for puppies to get giardia is through stagnant water - like puddles. which boba loves! so we have put her in our bathtub for water playtime but shes kind of outgrown our tub so me and tam tam went to petsmart to pick up boba's meds and saw that they had a plastic kiddie pool for like 10 bucks. so why not. so this am me and thomas filled it up with clean water and this was the result.
she loved it! and she is so funny because she blows bubbles in the water. i have never seen a dog do that before. i was nervous she would inhale and then aspirate or drown or whatever but we keep a close eye. when we put the pool away boba laid on the couch in the one part of sun to dry off but she kept going outside looking for her pool. now she's passed out on the floor between me and thomas on our computers. while uploading the videos we watched some of her baby videos - she seems like a totally different dog. not really in personality but just sheer size. thomas was all reminesent and sad she wasnt a baby anymore and tried to put her in his lap while he played games. she used to fall asleep on his lap when she was a baby while playing games. this picture shows that 1- she's definetly outgrown it 2 - she doesnt look too happy and 3 - thomas is really trying to go back in time. haha just kidding husby. well anyways, lots of busyness this week.
both of my sisters are in town which is so nice because we go out and do things - even if it was like yesterday- tashi was sick so me and tami went to goodwill and bought some good finds, then to petsmart and then to the grocery store. then we were so hungry we sat in the car in the parking lot and ate our chicken wings. people must have thought we looked wierd because it was like 80 degrees out and we were demolishing our chicken wings - but we dont care - when the bell girls are hungry we're hungry! and we both decided that maybe people just like to listen in to our conversations because serisously like 3 people jumped into our conversations. like we were at goodwill and tam tam found this super cute duvet cover and she was like this is mine because you got the pretty comforter - and i was like well fine - and this this random lady was like i like to shop with my friends where we fight over stuff too. mmm ok. hahaha - jk i guess it just means we were loud and laughing and having a good time. well anyways - we'll see what today holds - maybe macy's for the spotbot proheat cleaner - i think so and then after that its steam cleaning frenzy for the car and the house.
and then maybe me and thomas will end the day with some psych. i love psych.
until next time, you know you love me xoxo hehehe
