Dawg, you are in my thoughts and prayers.

It doesn't help while cleaning up that my stomach was already a little unsettled.
It looks like it will be another night on the couch with Violet. She has not been sick again, but is also not feeling well at all. I hate seeing her like this. Only a few hours earlier she was trying to get me to play in the worst way and now she just wants to cuddle so cuddle we will. Good thing we have a roomy and comfy couch!

I will try and get her into the vet early if she isn't any better.

V, I must admit I am very much a morning person and I get soooo much done in the mornings and then in the afternoons I like to kick back and chill out I get up at 5.30am every morning too, so by late afternoon I usually tire somewhat

If I have MS jobs to do, I always make sure I complete them in the mornings too

Must have a bit of reclining in the afternoon

I have kinks where I didn't know I could have kinks. This couch is not big enough for the three of us...Shrek is still sacked out in his chair. I don't think the cats let me move all night. Well, I don't feel flu-ish, so off to work.

Tracking the shipment of the 75" of Victorinox magnetic knife edge protectors that I ordered at a cost of 49 cents per inch.

maybe it is precisely because of all the hard work beforehand, that your relaxation times seem so extra delicious to us, kylie. i don't really know. but i look forward to your 'cuppas' with a smile of anticipation. i feel like there is a recliner and a fresh-brewed coffee waiting just for me, as soon as i 'finish up'....

Well, I have two sick dogs now. We can not figure out what it could possibly be. The only thing TB has come up with is the sidewalk "salt" the complex put down yesterday because of a call for ice overnight. This stuff is supposed to be pet friendly, but we are wondering if they got it on their paws and licked it off.

I just can't afford another double vet bill but I also can't stand to see them suffer.

Joie is in the hall where he got sick propped up against the door of the guest bathroom and won't move. I can see him from my office but can't get him to come to me. We don't know if he can't walk or just doesn't want to (he can be like that). Violet is a bit better than last night but still on the couch where we slept all night. (PF, sounds like you and I had similar nights with pets on couches).

I am worried

Bummer. (((Hugs)))

Can you get them to drink a lot of water to dilute anything they may have ingested?

The SVU was very good. I love the plot twists.

The flu has shut down several units in three of our main hospitals this week and DH says that it is really affecting both drivers and clients at work. I am supposed to go to a ladies' night tomorrow but it has been a busy week and I am worried about someone being sick (I will most likely pick it up) so I am not sure if I will go now. It is horrible to always have to think of these things when making plans.
