Oh Buddy

Our little buddy Brisco was sick last week.  
We had gone to bed around 10pm and he was acting super weird - jumping from the couch to the floor, to the bed, to the floor to the other bed, outside, to the couch, floor, bed, floor....moving every 3 minutes for over an hour.  Finally I got up and tried to help him.  He was obviously in some serious pain.  

I took him to the vet later the next day and we found out he had Pancreatitus.  That basically means that he ate too much people food and his pancreas started eating itself!  The vet gave him some pain killers and some other medicine and sent him home but he said that %80 of dogs end up being hospitalized!  Luckily, after days and days of laying around and not eating anything, Brisco ended up in the %20 of dogs that just get better.  But it was not fun.  And he's more likely to get it again now, so no more people food for this guy. 

The best part of it was watching how much Savannah loved and cared for him.  Brisco is the closest thing to a sibling she has so she was really worried.  She would constantly pat him and say "i'm so sorry you're sick buddy - you'll be better soon".  It was great.  Here's a picture of her in the waiting room at the vet.  She was trying to stay busy while B got x-rayed.  



Poor Brisco! He looks like he's got rabies in that photo. ;) And Sav's boots...goodness.
