Boo is very young at 1 1/2 years old, so I was surprised to find out she suffers from ETS*. ETS is indiscriminate and strikes hounds of all ages, colors and sizes.
I always tease her that her tongue will dry up and fall out if she keeps it up :)
Boo's ETS is tiny; this makes it even more adorable.
Wishing you all a happy and safe Memorial Day. A huge thank you to the service men and women who served and are still serving our country.

*ETS stands for escaped tongue syndrome and is not a serious thing, it's just a joke folks.

Week 6

I am sorry for the lack of posts. Spring/Summer is a busy time for me and on top of that poor Boo has been sick. Last week she was vomiting and had horrible diarrhea. This continued so I took her in and they ran fecal and blood samples. The fecal was negative and her blood work is fine. I don't know why she got sick because Boo did not get into anything since I watch her all the time... Then last night I thought about it and I feel that she probably licked or ate a small toad in the yard at last turnout when it is too dark for me to see. My property backs up into a small wood and pond, so I get a few toads in my yard. I always try to catch and relocate them a block away because I know they can make some dogs very sick... So keep your pups away from toads.
She feels a lot better now, but her poop is still very soft.

Besides from getting sick, Boo is settling in really well. Housebreaking her is a lot easier now. She is not as hyper and is so lovable! She loves to go for car rides, tries and fails to get the weims to play with her, eats like a champ, loves EVERYBODY (yes, even kids!), enjoys her daily walks, sleeps through the whole night without a peep and is learning to stay home without much separation anxiety.

So pretty!
