Sicker than a dog…

I guess since Piper’s a dog and currently the sick one in the house, I probably need a new metaphor, but poor little girl is not feeling so great. 😦

Piper Sick 1

After the long night we had, we’re all taking it easy today. I think Jeff and I may have gotten a little taste of parenthood last night. Turns out we’re not our happiest selves when we have to clean up after the dog at 3am.

Piper Sick 2

Cosmo’s not sick, but relaxing shouldn’t be a problem for him. 🙂 He’s got the whole nap thing figured out.


Happy Friday all. Hopefully yours is off to a better start!

P.S. any tips out there for taking care of a dog with an upset stomach? The more help the better!

  1. When Alex gets an upset stomach, lately more often since she is 11, I cook chicken soup for her and mixing a little bit of rice with it. I give it to her for 1 to 2 days. On the second day, I start introducing her kibble again. Do not mix the kibble with the chicken soup because if your doggie does not want to eat it you’ll have to throw it away. Also, the chicken soup for them is extremely simple: chicken, carrots, celery, potatoes, bullion, and a pinch of salt. Do not put a lot of flavors because that can throw off her stomach even more. Another thing to try is chamomile. Mix it up with water or just let her drink by itself. I hope this helps:)
