Going to the Beach and Meeting New Animal Friends

Chooey Update: Chooey's healing well. Unfortunately, China's quite under the weather! He tested positive for Ehrlichia and we had to leave him confined at the vets with an intravenous drip. 


Please send us some POTP for China. The doctor just called to inform us that China's condition is critical. They had to inject him with a medicine that makes the heart pump blood faster. He's also on oxygen.


A couple of weeks ago, Chooey was being fed soft diet composed of Cerelac and Royal Canin Recovery Food for 3 weeks straight. When I checked dogfoodadvisor.com, it didn't have any rating so I decided to switch Chooey's canned food to Solid Gold (with Cerelac) and Go! Natural. Both are grain-free and rated pretty well.

So you must be wondering where we guys are. We're just preoccupied with my sister's arrival. She hasn't come home for 14 years and it's a big deal that we spend as much time as we could with her. Sorry if we haven't visited your blogs. We know we owe you guys big time!

Marui was kept in "bars" while our rented van entered the resort because he likes running out of the gates and through the streets. 
We went to the beach this weekend and stayed in a very nice place. It was a private establishment. The owners had two dogs- a Shih Tzu and Chocolate Lab. The Lab was such a friendly gentle giant. He reminded me of the sea lion we watched that day.

This is one happy sea lion!
While talking to his caretaker, we asked what dog food they were feeding him. He said it was Purina. The first thing that came to my mind was Pro Plan Chicken and Rice because it used to be recommended by my old vet (back in the province). It's definitely a lot better than feeding the dogs leftovers or human food.

This is Hachi. The owners derived his name from the dog named Hachiko. 
We played with Marui the entire night. He loved being stroked. We also played with the little puffball. Not to mention the cat...

This is Bob (or so we named him). He is also a beach resident.
So that's the rest of the beach crew. 

Hope China gets better. The vet says that the medicine for Erlichia is highly effective and they're just keeping an eye on him tonight.

  7. Sisters who visit after such a long time come first. We're happy about the news about Chooey, but paws are crossed for China.

    We ate a raw food diet until Bella arrived...she was on pro-plan. SHE realised how much easier kibble was, so we switched. We switched a few times because I, Daisy, can't have grain.

    The beach pack looks like loads of fun.

    XXXOOO Daisy, Bella &Roxy

By the way, I decided to turn on word verification because of the spammy comments we've received. Please bear with us. Thanks.
