Here I am with my little, (huge,) baby, Molly. She gets on my nerves a LOT, but at the end of the day I love her to pieces. And last night I got zero sleep because she was sick :( I think she has the flu but I'm not totally sure. I do know that she was laying by my bed panting for about a half hour and seeing as it was pretty cool in the apartment, I couldn't understand it. I decided to bring her outside to see if she had to use the bathroom and man, did she ever. She squatted right down and, ahem, did both at the same time. I have never seen a dog do that before. And she kept on trying to go long after stuff stopped coming out. I had to gently coax her back inside, where she avoided sitting down because I think she was in pain from straining to use the bathroom. She looked miserable. After she settled down I went to sleep, but I had to get up again in the middle of the night for a repeat performance and then I couldn't get back to sleep. As a result I am physically sitting at my desk at work but mentally still asleep in bed, and I didn't get up in time to make a smoothie or anything for lunch. Quiznos salad it is.
The good news in all this is that the cat is able to roam freely around the apartment, because Molly is too tired to chase her. Lexi, enjoy your freedom while you can. I don't think its going to last long.

Poor pup! As awful as an upset stomach is for us, I'm sure it is just as bad or worse for a dog. I hope she's feeling better by now and I hope you got to nap today or at least sleep in tomorrow.

By the way- LOVE that you're my newest follower!
