Robinson Update

Thank all of you for all your responses here and on FB - I feel very... supported :)  Which is nice.

Robinson is home, and is okay, though I'm not totally happy about him.  He was given IV fluids and antibiotics yesterday, and came home with a gut antibiotic (which I'm sure brinian will be familiar with.  He ate breakfast with some appetite and was happy to go out.  But he's still displaying some of the restlessness that he was presenting Saturday night, though obviously not as badly.  It may be that he still has some gas and/or inflammation, but if he doesn't settle down I'll take him in to my own vet on Wednesday or Thursday (thank heavens for a rather more civilized schedule this term that gives me late afternoons and evenings).  And they never really said what they thought caused it.  I'm worried that there might be some discord between him and Zoe that is upsetting him - he's very sensitive and quite submissive, and she can be quite snarly.  I love her dearly, though, so we have to figure out what to do about it.

    I wanted to write something about Ray Bradbury

  • The Weakness in Me

    Robinson's death has hit me hard. Also, the general feeling of doglessness. I haven't been without a dog, except for when on holiday, for eighteen…

    My tribute to Robinson, blogged elsewhere.
