I am not happy...

Looking at this face... do you think I am happy?? Of course not!

Let me explain you. Last Monday night, my mom noticed I had made "mushy poop". She thougth I had eaten something that I should not.
Tuesday morning, we she went to work, she told my Grandma to keep an eye on "my bussiness". In the afternoon, my poop was not so liquid so my mom thought I was ok.
Wednesday my Grandma called my mom to work to tell her my poop was again mushy and that I had been like sad during the day. My mom called my Vet to make and appointment and he told her to take me there at 5 pm. There we went and... OMD! First, he checked me from nose to tail. Then, he stole my blood. Then, he went away to run the test. He came back. Everything looked normal. A light dehydration and something that indicated to him an infection. And here it came an injection.
The worst part? DIET!
First he said "Nothing tonight".... WTF??? And for the next 3 days, no kibble, no veggies, no treats! Only twice a day a special food that comes in a can and more antibiotics.

Special food and antibiotics...

When we came home I asked my mom for my dinner. No luck! Then I asked her for me treat. No luck! I was starving! I went to sleep with my tummy empty!
This morning, my mom put that "special food" in my bowl and... and... EWWWW!
I did not like the smell of it and it looked disgusting!
Fortunatelly, my Grandma had boiled rice and chicken in the fridge! My mom washed my bowl and put it there the homemade food and.... YUMMY!

Homemade food... boiled rice and chicken!

Today, my poop "looked" better and I played with with my ball again!
I hope these 3 days go away fast because I am missing my veggies and my treat!

This is what I did when my mom said "Sorry Lorenza, no treat for you tonight"!

Have a good night


Khyra The Siberian Husky And Sometimes Her Mom said...

In support fur woo, I won't have any more treats tonight -

Sorry woo've been mushy -

BUT glad to see it isn't anything serious -

Paws khrossed woo will khontinue to firm up!


Cole said...

Aww, poor Lorenza!! I hope you feel better soon.

Sam said...

Poor girlie! Sorry to hear of your tummy troubles. Marge had the mushies about a month ago and had to go on pills for a week.

Patience-please said...

Oh sweet Lorenza!!! Feel better. Our little Mama Pajama has a bad disease of her pancreas, but that means she gets home cooked rice and meat for the rest of her life! Maybe you could get home cooking forever if you play your cards right.

Mango said...

Poor Lorenza! That medicine food tastes like crap! You are lucky to have the rice and chicken from Grandma. That is much better.

I am taking antibiotics too and they are making me feel like myself again, so try to make sure you take all your pills. Hang in there.


Beckett said...

I can understand why you're not happy, Lorenza, but I think that special food is delicious! My mom hates it, though (not that she's eaten it LOLOLOLOL).

Feel better soon!


Pee-S - what is it with the two-leggers and their fascination with our poop?!?

sadermaxx said...

Poor Lorenza, Sadie said " You should take two treats and call her in the morning." Sadie thinks treat make everything better.
We hope you feel better soon.

Hoover said...

Hey Lorenza,

I hope you feel better very soon. I think it is wrong for the humans to starve you like that. I mean, how it that gonna make you feel better?

I bet humans sometimes have mushie poos! You know they do!

My suggestion to avoid this in the future- poop where they can't see you! My humans have no idea where I poop. They only find it by chance if they happen to run over a pile with the tractor.

Poo Lorenza !!

Hope you get well soon alright ! Lady say she understand how awful that food taste like as she had it before !!
Paw crossed fur you !!!

The OP Pack said...

Poor Lorenza, hope you are feeling better tomorrow. That chicken and rice should help. We don't like those prescription diets either. Sorry about no treats, but once you are better, we are sure Mom will give you one.

Sparky said...


Oh no! That seriously sucks. No treats or veggies? Man, how much worse can life get?! I really hope you feel better soon Lorenza, we'll be thinking of you!


Twix said...

Oh, girlfriend! I'm so sorry you aren't feeling well. That sounds like what I had a month or so ago. I had to eat that same food, take antibiotics and the doctor said I had an infection. You will be back to normal very soon! By the way, use this and your beautiful sad eyes to get your family to feel bad for you and they will give you extra treats when you can have them again!

Stella said...

Poor little girlie! I will support you like Khyra and take no treats myself tonight or tomorrow!

I'm glad your Grandma fixed you rice and chicken, thats the best.

Your Mom and Grandpawrents take such good care of you!

Kisses, Stella

Tessa the Maltese said...

oh my poor Lorenza!

We are so sorry that you have mushy poo problem. Not good.

I had that and Mommy stopped giving me so many veggies. My doctor said I should have a teaspoon of no-fat yogurt every morning. I LOVE my yogurt. I also love chicken and rice, nummm nummm.

Hugs, Tessa

Mack and Sally Ann said...

I've had to eat that food before, but it really doesn't taste that bad. I promise. I've had tummy problems my whole life, so I can empathize.

I can't believe he stole your blood. How rude! I hope you're feeling better, Lorenza. It's no fun being sick. But yayy for rice and chicken. I love my veggies and treats too.

Lots of Licks, Ruby

Ozzie and Rocky said...

Poor sweet Lorenza:( We hope you are feeling better soon! That prescription food is nasty so we don't blame you for turning your nose up to it! Take care little friend:)
Ozzie & Rocky


first of all why is everyone in your business. Wow. Humans are so fascinated by poop. Now a DIET? I think you can work on grandma about this... she seems easily swayed

MAX said...

Hey there Lorenza
Oh we are sorry that you are not feeling well...your face truly does tell it all.(and you have the bandage too as evidence)
That Hills Science diet is very good, but your Granny's rice and chicken are an old favourite of ours too when your tummy is not right! Indeed, I think the tinned food is exactly that! - only in tins.
Anyway we hope you get better soon. Your family is doing a great job of looking after you.
Lots of licks

TwoSpecialWires said...

We're sad you aren't feeling well, Lorenza. And we hope your tummy gets better soon so you can have the things to eat that you like. Personally, we like that dogfood. We keep it on hand so that when our VSBs (very sensitive bellies) flare up, we have it to eat. We gobble it up (though Moma only gives us very small portions at at time.) We think it is mostly chicken and rice in a can, though. It sounds like you may be getting the real thing! Yum!

Feel better,
We want to see you smiling again.
Jake and Fergi

Thor said...

Oh Lorenza!
Fiquei triste de ouvir que você está doente. Espero que você melhore logo!


Dennis the Vizsla said...

As soon as I saw that bandage on your arm, I knew we were in for bad news ... but glad there is nothing serious wrong!


Dearest Lorenza,

You poor little thing! We are sooo sorry to hear that you were soo pooped out! But it sounds like you are better now.

There is nothing better in the whole world then Grandma's Home Made Chicken and Rice Soup to make you well again. and I bet it tastes good too!

And thanks for all the votes, we need them!

Riley and Star.

Morgan in Pittsburgh said...

oh no - I hate when i get that. I get the chicken and rice too - that's pretty good eatin'.. The W/D food is better tasting than that I/D food. I really, really like the W/D stuff, and it works just as well for getting rid of the mushy stuff. Hope you are feeling better.
your pal, Morgan

Martha Basset said...

Oh sweet little Lorenzo, this is too bad!
Thank dogness your Grandma had boiled rice and chicken.
We have never had that but our mum's last dog Harry would have that if he was poorly.
He would never eat any food the vet gave him!!!
We cannot bear to think of you going to bed with an empty tummy.
We do hope you are all better soon - you will soon forget the nasty injections and the blood being stolen.
We could see you had a little bandage on your paw.
Be sure to let us know how you get on.
love you lots
Martha & Bailey xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
ps extra kisses todayxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

Oh! qué pesadilla esto de los perriatras... mira que dejarte a dieta por unas caquitas de nada. menos mal que las abuelitas siempre saben el mejor remedio casero es un rico platito de arroz.
¡Que te mejores princesa!

Lorenza...we are so sorry to hear you are feeling less than perfect. Not fun at all to have our tummies in turmoil. Mom remembers many times that she had to fix the special rice and meat dish for Toto (RIP). We love you dish stand too cute. Do as Mom says and you'll feel better soon.
Madi and Mom

Mack said...

Poor little Lorenza! But we can tell you must be doing better cause your coat is so shiny!

Peanut said...

At least you didn't have to eat that awful canned food. Chicken and rice is great. Hope you are feeling all better soon.

Frankie Furter said...

Dear little Lorenza, I am soooo sorry you had the squishies. I think it is an offshoot of that two legger thing called Swine Flu. Of course our version would be named Cat Crap Flu. No veggies??? What is up with that? You have the very best grandma in the world. She sews for you and MAKES CHICKEN AND RICE.
Hope you are better SOON.
Loved the head under the pillow. If You can't see them...THEY can't see you. RIGHT?

Fred said...

Poor Lorenza! Hope you are all better soon (and your food is too)!

kalyxcorn said...

oh Lorenza! Did the doc tell you what he thought you had? Baxter had hemorrhagic gastroenteritis and it sounded like the same thing as Lorenza though he might have had even a worse case. Anyway Baxter now gets fiber added to every meal to make sure his poops are nice and solid. Glad to hear u are feeling better. I bet under that bandage is a cute shaved paw!

Tiffany and the Munchkins said...

Lorenza, we are sorry you haven't been feeling well. The hoomans only make it worse when they take us to the V-E-T when we aren't feeling good. We hope you get better soon!

Bijou said...

I'm sorry you are not feeling well and have to take mediciine. That special dog food does not look or tasty good I agree. Mom once had to give it to me when I was a little pup.

Get well soon!


Brind'Amour said...

Hi Lorenza! I missed you! I sure hope you feel better soon.

Chloe and Libby said...

Lorenza, girl I do hope you are feeling better! We doggies needs our treats, so I hope you get those back. I don't like veggies though,so your human could keep those. *pei laughter*

Deefor said...

You poor girl. A shot and then food you don't like! Arrow had to eat that food too. My mom found another food that we love and it works the same. It's called Nature's Recipe Easy to Digest (lamb rice & barley= with no corn, beef, wheat, fillers, etc.) If you have a big pet store they probably have it and it's not too expensive. Now we eat it all the time. (Now we have the canned and mixed with the kibble in the morning)

I hope you feel better.

The Army of Four said...

Oh, no! I hope you feel better VERY soon!!!
Is that a band-aide on your wrist? You poor thing!!!

Bobby said...

Oh you poor little girl, I hope you are better now.

Oskar said...

Ooh, Lorenza this sounds so awful. Did they take your temperture, too? Stealing you blood is bad enough, but to take you food and treats is even worse. Make sure and get lots of rest and extra belly rubs from your people!

Sierra Rose said...

Oh! Sorry about the special diet and no treats!!! But, thank you to granny for the chicken and rice!!! I had to have that a few weeks ago after a few big barfy times....worried mom and dad a bit.
Hope you are ok my friend!

Hugs and snaggle-tooth kisses,

Koobuss said...

Oh Lorenza!

That is terrible! How awful for you to have to go through that. I've had some of those problems, too. When my mom feeds me that "special food", I just won't eat it. Then I go to grandpaw and he sneaks me my treats and I feel better. Works every time!!

Hope that you are feeling better soon, mi amiga!

Love and Koobuss Kisses,

Snowy and Crystal said...

We are really glad to read that you are feeling better

Honey the Great Dane said...

Oh Lorenza - sorry for my late comment! You poor thing - what a terrible experience! I hope you are feeling better now.

You know, when I get 'mushy poo' and an upset tummy, my humans just starve me for 24hrs (on advice of the vet) to give my stomach a chance to rest and then start again with a very bland diet - like chicken and rice (your Grandma has the right idea!) - my human doesn't believe in those special prescription foods - she thinks often they are just marketing gimmicks for the pet food companies to make more money and often, simple home remedies work just as well. eating good quality, fresh food is always best than something made in a factory with lots of preservatives!
