I need paper towels! Stat!

For some reason Quincy decided to throw up today -- four times. I was
right next to him the first time, so I held his collar so he wouldn't
eat it, and sent my son to get some paper towels. He had some trouble
finding them, but he eventually did, and came running back with them.
He was also carrying the garbage can, which I thought was good
thinking. But, he didn't bring the can for easy paper towel disposal.
He brought it for the dog to throw up in. I had to stifle a laugh,
then try to explain to him why the dog wouldn't be able to throw up in
the can.

It's too bad Quincy can't, he threw up three more times. All on the
carpet. Why can 't dogs stay on the tile when they barf? Did you every
see a dog, or cat, when they get ready to throw up? They will walk to
the carpet to do it. Why? Don't they know it's impossible to clean?
Or, are they trying to get back at us for giving them something that
will make them ill? Either way, it's very irritating.

Now Quincy is sleeping. He seems OK, maybe a little worn out.

This is why I have no carpeting in my home, because of the dogs. Wood and tile is so much easier to clean. Hope Quincy is okay!

DC: About 3/4 of our lower level is wood or tile, he just felt like messing up the carpet, I guess.

He's fine now, thanks. I think he got a hold of something he shouldn't have and it upset his stomach.

They're good at getting into what they're not supposed to! This is why we keep Pepto Bismol and Imodium in the house. The vet suggested it and it really does help.

Glad he's feeling better. I have a soft spot for sick dogs. :)

Mike said...

DC: I heard that Pepto works for dogs, but I've never tried it. I need to remember that next time.

Just wanted to swing by and wish you a Happy Father's Day!

Mike said...

DC: Thanks! I'm working this morning so I haven't had a chance to celebrate. But, we are going out for a nice dinner later. I need to eat a small lunch to save room. :)

Poor Quincy. Elvis, my cat, will leave the bed to throw up on the carpet. LOL. I think it has something to do with never soiling the place they eat or sleep. I guess giving him breakfast in bed a few times worked out well for both of us! LOL. Give the puppy a hug for me.


Mike said...

Carly: So, I should feed him in the living room? That might work! I'd give him a hug but I'm afraid he's going to barf on me. :)
