Wax On. Wax Off. Never put away the hot weather clothes. Because it's been over 80 and humid for the last few days. Tomorrow? Big rain. Big temp drop.
Sophie's diarrhea returned in spectacular fashion today, but seriously, this dog is crazy smart. She had this massive blast of diarrhea in the shower. This is not the first time she did this, and it's obviously a strategy, not an accident.
So she's going to be on chicken and rice and probiotics tomorrow, and I'll call the vet to see if there is an alternative to the dreaded SD, and try that. If not, we'll have to do further testing and see if it really is the food or something not diagnosed. She's otherwise perky and pestering me, she's solid and not losing weight (other than the weight lost because she was forced to eat that nasty Science Diet I threw out every day, because seriously, it must be yucky). She loved all the premium foods, and the diarrhea had returned while still on the SD, so I don't think it's connected to a brand of food. I think we'll have to spend money on further diagnostics. In the meantime, I cooked a batch of white rice to mix with her plain chicken breast, and I'll do a chicken and rice and probiotic mix for breakfast.
Is it too much to ask to have a dog that shits normally? Apparently so. But she's an outstandingly smart dog. Murphy never, ever thought of confining it to the tile shower.
