Chance: Someone is sick

Hiya!  It’s me Chance the blogging Border Collie.

Far Guy went to the Doctor and got three bottles of pills.  Guess someone was right when she said he better get his butt into the Doctor.  He has a fever and a bad cough that keeps him us awake all night.

Somebody is sick

I am just fine.  It’s not catchy is it?  Must not be… Far Side is just fine…she did join us for one nap time but that was because of the coughing all night business…it was hard to listen to and hard to sleep through.  She must have had a really good nap cause she drooled on her pillow and everything…just a little…a very ladylike drool…not at all like a drippy dog drool that leaves a puddle on the floor. Not me

I go out to play ball with Far Side when she says it is time to go out…then I go back to my spot.

Just in case he wants to pet me I am close

Just incase someone wakes up and wants to scratch my back or rub my belly. 

We had Chicken Soup and fresh flatbread for supper last night and Far Guy is taking all his pills and drinking juice until he says “It is sloshing around in my stomach, how much more do you want me to drink?”   Far Side says he might be a tad cranky…but he is on his way to getting all better.

  3. You're a great nurse, Chance. Just looking at your sweet face would make anyone feel better. Wish I had a friend like you!

  4. I sure hope he gets better soon, Chance. Nobody likes to be sick, but it's sure a lot easier to be sick when you're around, I'll bet. :-)

  5. Hi Chance: please tell Far Guy to keep an eye on that cough. A couple winters ago that is how I started to have an acute bronchitis. The anti biotics should help a lot. If coughing gets worse please make Far Guy go back to the doctor! A cough like that can last for a long time even after it gets better. Please take good care of him, Chance. I know you will - and there is no better nurse than a furry one.

  11. Crankiness is always a hopeful sign of improving health. When you really down and out it requires too much energy. And I'm sure it's all due to Chance's nursing skills.

  15. Chance - - thank you for keeping us updated because we know Far Side has been very busy taking care of Far Guy. It's a good thing men have wives or they wouldn't live as long as they do. You are doing a great job of making sure Far Guy is resting like he should. If he has that coughing virus that went around down here - - - and with Busy Bee Suz's Family in Florida, it is a wicked, wicked sickness! Sure hope it is not making his face hurt more, too. Praying you all get some better sleep and that recovery is quick and Far Side does NOT catch it, too. However, if she does, she will be at the doctor fast I am sure.
