This puppy girl of mine. She’s a doll and an angel and a pain-in-the-a$$ all rolled up into one crazy-pants 10 pound package! But I love her. Possibly more than I’ve ever loved any other dog. She’s intelligent and loyal, super snuggly and she is mine. All mine! Even though she’s only been in out lives since May, she’s definitely taken over and the thought of anything happening to her terrifies me!
We’ve had our share of bumps, little scares and “moments”. Though she be but little… this fur-baby of mine can Clear a Room with one little toot! Its happened on more than one occasion and on more than on occasion my husband might have gotten blamed. *Giggles*
We had one scare with Bitly that sent us scampering off to the vets in a hurry! It wasn’t all the long after we brought her home that I noticed she was limping. After giving her the once over I noticed that the elbow joint (I have no idea what the doggie term would be) on her back leg was quite swollen. Off the vets we went… me in a panic, Bitly pretty much calm as a cucumber. With a little poking and prodding it was decided that she had a spider bite. The vets lanced it, gave us some antibiotics and we were on our way back home.
This sweet girl is such a part of our family and we would do anything to keep her healthy and happy. Regular vet visits, nutritional foods like Royal Canin and healthy snacks go a long way to keeping Bitly (and me too) happy. Science is another great way to look at every issue your dog may have.
