Thanksgiving....and the aftermath

We had a super fun-filled Thanskgiving with the Price family. All the traditional favorites - turkey, stuffing, potatoes, green bean casserole, and pies galore. It was soooo yummy, and a big thank you going out to Lyn for all her hard work!! Good food, good conversation, and good friends, what more can you ask for on Thanksgiving?

And, of course, it wouldn't be Thanksgiving without football - the Packers even pulled off a win!

When we got home, however, we were met with a very sick puppy. Bentley has been sick (I'll spare you the details here) for the past 3 days, but I thought it was just the flu or a cold or something. No such luck, though. He woke Dan up at 2 AM... and at 6 AM Dan woke me up and said that Bentley had blood in his stool (believe me, this is an UNDERSTATEMENT). SO, having just moved here, we of course don't have a vet yet.... so we found an emergency animal hospital online and decided to take him there.

Poor puppy is now in the hospital with IV fluid and medications. They ran all kind of (expensive) blood tests, but everything came back normal. They think it is HGE (basically a GI tract infection). It's terrible to see him in such pain, but we're glad that he's getting the care he needs. I think we'll be able to pick him up tomorrow.

Bella, our other little schnauzer, doesn't know what to do without Bentley. She has been mopey all day. She is so sad.

Let's hope the weekend gets less eventful from here on out!
