Prayers, Please, For the Pup
Constant Readers will be sad to learn that The Codeman, my cute-but-irascable Maltese, is sick...severe intestinal problems and lethargy; won't eat. He isn't in pain, though, and has short bursts of energy, and when one of his big blonde girlfriends tried to cheer him up, first by waving a stuffed toy in his face and then by presenting him with a kibble, his response was true to form -- growling at her. He has been spending much of the last three days cuddling on Fellow Traveler's lap or sleeping on his own bundle of favorite blankets. Yesterday, with much encouragement, he ate about a tablespoon of McDonald's hamburger (a favorite treat) and sausage, and some chicken soup. Today he's not eaten anything yet. The God I believe in is a God who cares even about elderly little dogs; please keep him in your prayers, that whatever the outcome for this is the best one for him.
