The Tuesday Tess..... Special Addition

Hi We're back, with a special addition, we thought its only right as you are our regular readers and friends that we should tell you why the unexpected blogging break.

First up both mom and dad say they have more grey hairs than they did the week before.


Its all started last Monday afternoon, mom got in from work at 4.00 dad was on the computer, George was just moping about, me well I had picked up some sweets that dad had dropped out of his back pocket, I had just finished when mom spotted the wrapper, she said to dad "Look she's got your tablets how many was in there" I think I had two, next thing I knew me and George were in the car, great I thought somewhere nice for a walk. We ended up at the vets!!! we both got weighed, locked up, needles in our arms all night, poked and prodded, it was not a good night,

Mom was there to pick us up in the morning with more sweets to take (Tablets), I had bad gut ache and wind, George wasn't to happy with me as he had to go through it all and he hadn't taken any.

So we weren't up to blogging, but we are ok now.

George is sporting the new poodle cut.
"Don't pull your tongue out George its rude"

 I got away with just one bare patch.

 Mom wanted to say a few words

Looking back I can now write a light hearted account of what happened, but a the time it was very worrying for both of us, Howard's not been in the best of health, and is on anti-inflammatories, he'd cut three from the blister pack to take into work having taken one that left the balance of two in the blister pack in his back pocket, some how they had fallen out in the house, and of course at the time we didn't know if it was Tess or George that had taken the two tablets that where missing.
I just found Tess on the floor with the empty blister pack chewing on it. They both had to stay over night at the vets on fluids and the drugs to help flush the tablets through. The one thing that came as a real shock, we were told by the vet that it was a possibility that one or both might get renal failure over the next week, we came way from the vets to an empty home not knowing if they would be with us the following weekend.
We knew by Tuesday night that George was ok, so don't think he had any of them, but poor Tess, had to go back to the vets as she was being sick after she had her perscribed tablet. She got better each day and by the Friday back to 100% play fighting with George. We just hope she has no long term damage. 
So the morall of this story, please don't leave tablets in your pockets when you have dogs around.

 Its over a week ago and we are still ok, the signs are good 

George is showing me some brotherly love on Sunday

Oh goodness, mum and I are SO happy that you two are OK, and mum says she can totally relate to the grey hair comment. She puts stuff in hers to make it look dark brown again....

On the video me thinks George thought you were a liver flavoured lolly-pop!! BOL!

I know when your B'day is George, and I look forward to your Thursday post!!

Tail Wuggles, Rubie

Leigh said...

So glad you're both OK! Sometimes my Mum says that she can't understand when they say people with dogs are more relaxed stress free people than those without :-) Take care Tess and no more tablet eating - it's bad enough when we HAVE to have them! Love to you and George and your peeps - Magic xx

Tsk, tsk, Tess. No wonder George has his tongue out--he's giving you a "raspberry" for making him spend the night at the veterinary clinic. You youngsters! Thank goodness you're all right.

What a close shave. I remember the worry when we feared horatio had eaten a magic mushroom. Mischievous pups have a lot to answer for!

Archie's Dog Blog said...

Hi George, Hi Tess. Thanks for getting in touch with me and at such a dramatic time! Glad that everything is now OK. I've created my own worrying moments what with jellyfish, being kicked by a horse, running into a slate bird table etc. But tablets is not a good idea! Hope my secretary sorts out his primitive blogging skills. Love Archie X

Castles Crowns and Cottages said...

Wyatt said...

Oh dear, what an ordeal. We had a similar event, when Wyatt ate what looked like a pill that fell out of a relative's purse. Diabetic pills to lower blood sugar. We called the vet right away. We made Wyatt drink hydrogen peroxide, to throw up. Everything was fine, but we were all nervous wrecks!
So glad that Tess and George are okay. Aire-hugs to you all.
