We interrupt this program...

Meow, Wilbur here.  Steve and Kat are going to have to take a break from their dog park series because they are in jail at the vet.  And as much as some pups like to say, I had nothing to do with it.

On Sunday morning, Steve and Kat stole some banana nut bread off the counter.  (No, I did not push it to the edge for them to get it.)  Then Sunday night, Kat didn't want to eat her supper.  Steve gobbled his up, but later threw it all up on the floor.  It was disgusting, let me tell you.  Kat was also acting very pathetic and curling into balls on Mom's lap whenever she could.

Then all night Sunday night/Monday morning, Steve and Kat wanted to go outside, but when they got outside, they would try to do some business but nothing really came out, if you know what I mean.  Steve did have a couple accidents in the bathroom.  He's one smart pup, I will admit, for not going on the carpet.
Finally the last straw was in the morning when Mom was getting ready for work.  Steve jumped off the bed and with no warning, had a gross accident in the bathroom that was kind of bloody.

Mom thought he might have giarrdia, so she loaded both furry beasts into the car to drop them off at the vet on her way to work.  Later in the morning the vet called to tell Mom that they both had fevers and to ask Mom some more questions about how the furry beasts were acting at home.  Mom answered the vet's questions and the vet said she wanted to run a blood test for pancreatitis.  Mom said sure.  An hour or two later, the vet called back to say they both had pancreatitis.  The treatment for that is 48 hours of no food or water.  To prevent the furry beasts from drying up, they have to stay at the vet on IV feeding and fluids.

Mom and Dad went to visit them last night.  The furry beasts got all hyper when they initially saw Mom and Dad, but then got tired pretty quickly.  Mom took them some toys from home.  Dad wanted to take me for them, but I put my paw down.  The vet told Mom and Dad that Steve and Kat should be able to go home Wednesday evening.

I'll claw out an update when I have one.
Mom, why do I have to stay here?
Oh, Mom, stop hugging.  It's embarrassing.
I can still be Superman while I'm sick.
Thank you for bringing me toys.  They are MINE!
Okay, Dad.  Let's have a talk.  You're going to take me home with you, got it?

Oh no! We sure hope you're on the road to recovery and will be home soon. We're sending Sibe Vibes just to be sure.

Keeping all paws crossed in Fl for a speedy recovery. Wilbur, you could at least try to be nice while your sibesibs are stuck in the hospital!

Steve and Kat this is no way to be when there's all that great snow to tromp around in. We will be waiting to hear your tail waggin' tales upon your return home. In the meantime we'll count down those 48 hours with you. In fact only 21 to go!

Whoops. That was Heidi counting. She was having a senior moment. Let's try the count down again...33 to go.

Quick draw on the keys.

Thanks for the update, Wilbur. (MMmmmrrrrow! Row! Row!) Puppies will be puppies - we're just so thankful your mom and dad took Steve & Kat to the vet's so he could get them feeling better. She's a GOOD mom to you guys - try to be extra nice to her while your Sibe-lings are gone, OK?
Tail wags and mmmmmrrrow!

I have a hard time believing that Wilbur was an innocent party in all of this. Glad to hear the pups are doing better! Sibes vibes still comin'!

WOo woo, Kelsey Ann

Peanut said...

Wilbur I know you didn't do it. Stupid dogs will always try to blame us for everything.

Wilber - we are glad you are holding down the fort! I am so sorry that Steve and Kat are going through what Tia just went through. That is such a bummer and is not fair!!! We are sending strong vibes to them and hope they come home on Wed. as planned.

Princess Eva and Brice said...

Both at the same time? That must be devastating for your Mom and Dad. But at least they are there together. They won't be as lonely.


Kathryn and Ari said...

Oh, no! Thank goodness your very smart (and attentive) humans got you to the vet in time. Hope you're on your way and feeling much better!

PS- We'll send you some virtual banana bread to think about until you can eat again. It's not as much fun, of course, but at least it'll give you something to meditate on while counting down the minutes until your home.

The Brat Pack said...

I have that too and it stinks. Now I eat gross plain food, I hope you don't have to do that forever too.

Hopefully you're going to get pampered all week and get new toys when you get home. It's only fair.

Khady Lynn said...

Such sad little faces!!! I know your mom and dad will miss you. Even if Wilbur doesn't!

We are guessing the parents visited Steve and Kat this eve. Do tell us how everyone is doing. We're counting down the hours until they are returned safe and sound. Looks like the count is: 18 hours. Snuggle close with Mom and Dad tonight!

Thanks for the report Wilbur!

What's with all the pancreek... pencrete... disease going around? Is it contagious?

I probably need both front paws to count the sick doggies I've heard about lately!
