Bobby is pretty sick...

This afternoon he vomitted - a very large amount. After that he was pretty uncomfortable - he would sit then lie down, then get up and move and go through it all again. I phoned the vet to alert them I may have to bring him in but he seemed to settle down after a while. The vet said to watch him and if he got worse, bring him in - since he settled down I didn't take him. His eyes are bright but his tongue seems cool. He ate his supper and drank water and has been sleeping since - but comfortably now - he isn't showing any discomfort.

Hopefully he has expunged whatever upset his stomach and he'll be fine tomorrow!

Bobby, with a big smile, says Thank You Everyone!

He is feeling sooo much better this morning - he slept all night with no upsets at all and he's ready for our beach outing now.

I guess I'm just an over-protective mom - worrying just because he had an upset tummy - and here he is wondering what the fuss was about

I'm glad to hear he's feeling better.

Good for you for being over-protective. Me too! And I wouldn't have it any other way.
