This past week has been rough. We moved to our new city and all was going well until our dogs decided to get sick. After calling the vet and being told to wait and try boiled chicken and rice, things weren’t getting better so we took Malcolm and Ollie in on Tuesday. It turns out they have Giardia. They lick my face constantly. Excuse me while I stick my head in a bucket of bleach.

What have you been up to lately? Hopefully your week hasn’t involved uncontrollable doggie diarrhea.

    Aw poor pups. My week hasn’t been filled with doggie diarrhea, but instead toddler diarrhea. So in a way, I feel your pain!

    aren’t dogs the best? well mine came home with fleas after our vacation so that was fun too (though still preferable to diarrhea!) hope the pups are feeling better asap!

    Walter wants to cuddle with your dogs. :)

  • Jen

    Oh no both of your pups are sick? I have dealt with one sick dog and that is not fun so I can only imagine how difficult it is with two sick dogs. I hope they start feeling better soon! I also wanted to give you a heads up that I mentioned your blog today as one that I have been loving lately :)

    Aww I really hope your dogs get well soon – moving is stressful at the best of times but ill pets who insist on licking your face really can’t be helping matters! I’m just after finding your lovely blog and have loved dipping into your posts on your previous travels – particularly your Scottish adventures. I’m an Irish girl living in Scotland so it’s lovely to read about another ex-pat’s experiences and to jot down some tips :) I’m looking forward to reading all about your latest adventure!

  • Heather Marie

    Oh no!!! So sorry to hear your pups got sick. I hope it gets better from this point out!

  • Jessica @ Independent Travel Cats

    Sorry to hear about your puppies. Hope the weekend is better. Look forward to working with you soon!

    i just recently had the same thing happen to my dog. i think it was a change in his snack that caused it because our vet couldn’t find anything wrong. but that chicken and rice did the trick! he was on it for about a week and a half and now he’s all better. it scared us though! sick doggies are no fun. hope yours get better soon!

  • themovetoamerica
