The House with the Pink Shutters. Paeloti the Street Dog – Part Two
Dogs die. But dogs live, too. Right up until they die, they live. They live brave, beautiful lives. They protect their families. And love us, and make our lives a little brighter, and they don’t waste time being afraid of tomorrow.” – Dan Gemeinhart
We knew he was really sick when he stopped eating. This time he had consumed something really rank. Every half hour all night we were taking him out to be sick or go to the loo. He moaned in pain all the time and when morning came we rushed him to the vet ( they don’t operate at night) . Our neighbour , Kristoula, who thinks she is a expert having kept goats and chickens all her life told us that he would sort himself out and come good. Two lots of IV fluids, intravenous antibiotics, oral medication, 10 days of worry and sleepless nights later he has started to eat and drink again but is still not really well yet. I put him outside for a while so Kristula could make a fuss of him. “See I told you he would come good ” she said.
