    I had to do a bit of a drive today and thought kill too birds with one stone. Don't have time to take them to the valley, too tired, too stressed, too cold to walk. SO maybe if I let them ride along they will think they did something and it will be better than nothing. Right before I left Pepper had a bm of an unusual amount. So I thought ok..all done in that dept. Half way there she starts crying, and shivering, and pushing against me..then against me and the door. THere is no where to pull over. I don't know what is wrong. I am telling her five more minutes five more minutes please let there be someplace. Finally in the absolute worst part of town ever I have to take my little brown dog out where she has a profound amount of runny stool. Bad enough, but thank goodness it isn't in the car. Get back in..get back on the highway, and again the crying, the shivering, Sheeesh.....find another spot. SAme thing. Surely it's over now. GEt where I am going, sign on all the dotted lines...get half way back. ANd again. AND AGAIN! .OMG Pepper! WHat DID YOU EAT? SO i found a park, where she unloaded what I pray is the last of it. I didn't get mugged and we didnt' get run over, the car was saved, if I had left her at home, my bedroom would have been a horror. I don't see how in the world she could have had that much in her in the first place. Poor Pepper. I don't think I could have done that, held it for that long. No supper for her tonight. I think all of her innerds need a rest. I know I do..trying to move, trying to pack. Trying to find the money to move and to pack. Let's just say it was a sh!tty day. She's ok now. At least there is that.

    Poor Pepperpot...at least she told you. Sawyer had two "accidents" today while we were at JJ's office...both about te same spot. I tried to teach him how to ask to go out today, but I don't know how much progress we made. This is so unlike him, at least his were solid and easy to pick up.

    I hope her tummy is back to normal soon!!
     
  3. Aww, so sorry, smkie! (((GREAT BIG HUGS))) I hope the little Pepperpot is feeling better, and I hope tomorrow is a better day for you.

    Awww, poor thing!! Auggie will do that too, hold it like crazy even when he has to let out a runny, icky poo. I don't know how he manages it. She might be feeling the stress from your move, maybe that's what did it?

    she snuck in and helped herself to a large amount of cat food that was not put into the container by one miss Hyia as it was suppose to be.

    I didn't know what was wrong with her..she was panting really hard, as well as shivering, crying and shoving herself against the door. Surprisingly she had no gas which is why I didn't know at first what was wrong.

    I have a few friends and my son that are reassuring me that this move will happen as it is suppose to, even in the dark, even in the now coming snow. HOw it is going to happen friday and friday night, and be ready for inspection come saturday I do not know. I am going to have them come this Sunday and haul out everything that needs to be put out for large trash. (most of what i own I am not taking) on Sunday. I mean how am I suppose to pack and clean when i can't even get around the boxes. Needless to say this is nuts and I am just a drivel of drips under my blanket. PEpper is ok, and that is the important part. No grave illness, just a bout of foundering. I busted her coming out of Hyia's room smacking her lips this evening and that explained everything.

    Just once I would like to move when I want to, where I want to and how I want to. I am NOT a last minute person and doing things this way because other people fell on their responsibilities turning my life upside down just makes me angry. I wanted to move this Sunday when my son is off work and the person responsible said "i can't work around other people's schedule". IF i could have reached through the phone i would have done him bodily harm. It's all for the dogs, is all i can say. If it wasn't for them, i could move anywhere no problem. I once said I would live in a box if there was no other way to be with them. Hope it doesnt' come down to that, this hobbit hole is close enough.

    I hope she is feeling better :(

    At least it all worked out and there was no messes to clean.......it could have been a lot worse. I am glad she told you and could hold on to it, good girl Pepper, very good girl :)

    I am sure I am radiating stress in all directions. Last night i was just curled in a ball soaking my pillow in tears. I have to pull it together or it will trigger Hyia's ocd and that is the last thing i need right now. I was so mad at the landlord and his "don't work around other people's schedules" i couldn't sleep until 4 am. He should be shot after being drawn and quartered.
