An Entirely Gross Post

I promised I'd have photos from Shenandoah Park today. Unfortunately, there was an unfortunate series of events (Can you tell I watched the Snickett movie today?) and I had to cancel. Apollo picked up a doggy version of stomach virus, probably from the dog park yesterday (I curse whoever brought their sick dog to the park), and was unfortunately ill today.

Nothing says love more than when someone cleans up the puke without a wince and reassures a dog. Truthfully, it wasn't necessary, but I needed to reassure him, in a roundabout way to reassure myself.

"Don't worry, you'll be just fine."

I didn't know dogs could puke that much. Or that often. He got to the point where water was making him vomit. Sorry about graphic image there.

I did consider taking photos for proof. Yellow liquidy bile, yum.

But reconsidered. I don't want to scare what few readers I have off.

My apartment now smells like puke, bile and dog food (sorry again for graphic image).

Ok, I'm not really sorry. I have to find the humor somewhere.

But anyway, Apollo's feeling better, and is eating bland food and drinking water. I'm confident he'll make a full recovery. He's playing a little now.

That's how I spent my day. Taking care of my 90-pound almost-four-years-old puppy.

I'll take a day off sometimes soon, probably, and take the road trip to Shenandoah. Hopefully before the forest loses too many leaves. Within next two weeks.
