Eww

Poor Bella. She had diarrhea this morning. We think it's because she got real upset yesterday. Yesterday she walked into the narrow area between the fence and the shed they go in for shade and wind protection and got stuck. She must have been stuck a long time and I guess she couldn't figure out how to back out. Gary came home and heard a racket and found her and he got her out. She hasn't got a scratch on her and other than distress seems okay. I'm glad the diarrhea went away. Didn't know what I was going to do if it continued.

Tomorrow I get to clean her up. Blech. She's quite a mess in the back. Blech.

I'm sure she was stressed out pretty bad. Hope she feels better soon. I've cleaned up after a dog with the runs, I'd hate to think about cleaning up after a horse.

Yuck. Not fun at all! I hope she feels better soon. I have had that happen with all of my pets at one point or another. Once it happened in the car....on my lap. That is one day I will never forget!

lol. I'm sorry for laughing! How disgusting! When we were very small and we used to drive to Nebraska to see family every year, whenever my little sister (she was 2 or 3) threw up from carsickness she always did it in our dad's lap. Haha! Then we'd all want to throw up from the smell.

Oh, it is definitely laughable! I should have blogged about it because it was a story unlike anything I have ever heard before. I was afraid I would gross everyone out. I'll just tell it to you so you can be grossed out :). lol! It happened with Dolly, and it was when we were all crammed in the car. It was just a few months ago, when Evie and I were moving back to our house after we found out Jeff's job was going to be closing. About an hour from home, Dolly started acting weird. I thought she was scared (why, I thought that, I don't know). I decided to hold her like a baby (which she likes). Yep, real smart. All of the sudden I looked down at her and said, "Oh my word Jeff, she is pooping!" I will never forget what happened next. Like a cannon going off, she shot liquid poo all over the door, window and me. It was EVERYWHERE. Jeff quickly pulled over and rolled the window down (and smeared it as it went down). I threw Dolly outside, and then she threw up all over the grass. I tried to clean myself off with hand sanitizer and napkins. As I was doing that, I just started hysterically laughing. I couldn't help it! The whole thing was so gross, but it was so funny too! We had to ride home with that smell for an hour. OH what a mess. I hosed down everything with disinfectant. It was an experience, that is for sure. Aren't you glad I shared that? Lol!

lol. ComPLETELY disgusting. You got me laughing out loud. Oh my, that is a story of all stories. I have nothing to match it! And poor Dolly too. She was feeling so bad and couldn't tell you. What was she thinking when you held her on your lap? lol. If only she could talk. Yeah, you should have blogged it. It's totally blogworthy and would have grossed everyone out so much that you would have gotten tons of visits from everyone coming to read it. Haha!

SchnauzerMom, I used gloves to hose and wipe her off and everyone was making fun of me saying what kind of cowgirl am I anyways? I told them I'm a cowgirl work-in-progress and the gloves are staying on.
