Calling in Sick

So someone woke up with a tummy ache this morning because someone’s dad gave them a bully stick late at night even though someone’s mom said no. It started when Hoku didn’t run out of his crate like he usually does every morning, and let out the shrillest Shiba scream when I touched his underbelly. A quick Google search told me that it was possibly bloating, which is fatal in dogs so I drove him down to the vet at lightning speed only to find him normal and feeling better when we arrived. Dr. Barre still took a look at him and prescribed some antibiotics just in case.

Apparently Shibas are also known to be drama queens. And this one’s getting chicken and rice for dinner tonight.
