Doggy Math

At the time of the last post, we had three dogs. Churchill, Sunny and Doubledee.  It was hectic, but I wouldn’t change it for the world, I love having a house full of dogs.. However, that changed when almost two weeks ago, Churchill swallowed an 18 inch rope that got stuck in his stomach and intestines.

Having to rush my dog to the animal hospital because he was lethargic and vomiting is not something I consider to be a good time. But then again, neither was my dog having an emergency enterotomy,  or the giant vet bill that came with it!

While Church was at the hospital, we were down to two.  And in the middle of this, Sunny was going to her new home!  It wasn’t as heartbreaking as I thought it would be, but it was still sad to see her drag her new owner to the car, not knowing that she would never see us again.

When Churchill came home,  I wanted a nice quiet atmosphere for my dog to heal up and Doubledee being the puppy that he is, was just not conducive to that type of environment. He went to a new foster home and is hoping to get adopted soon!

That brings us to where we are now. One dog who is clearly not happy that he is the only dog (I don’t like it much either). However, unfortunately (or fortunately..) Sunny’s new home wasn’t working out and they’re returning her. As soon as I found out I told the rescue that we would of course take her back in! Adopting Sunny is currently in discussion, we need to make sure she’s the right dog for us.. but either way,  that will bring us back to two.

    Oooh…been there recently. Our Jackson had a meal of three socks. Giant vet bill, indeed. Hope Churchill feels better soon…and Sunny’s return? Well, some things just might be meant to be :-)

      Poor Jackson! I hope he’s learned his lesson about socks for dinner. I felt like such a horrible mom when we were taking him to the vet, who lets their dog eat things?! Apparently a LOT of people. Once people heard that Church was in the hospital, all sorts of stories came out about dogs eating pantyhose, corn cobs, socks, toys, It almost feels like a rite of passage now, haha.

  2. Sorry to hear that Sunny’s home didn’t work out but maybe it’s meant that you adopt Sunny. Hope Churchill recovers quickly and thoroughly.

      That’s what we’re wondering. When she left, my SO said “If she comes back she’s ours..” and she did. But… she’s also a pretty high energy dog who needs a large backyard or someone to take her on runs. We are pretty low energy people, so is Churchill and we have a pretty piddly backyard. As much as we love her, we’re having problems with feeling like we’re the best home for her.
