Sunny Ray was sick all weekend. Well, kinda. I had to do a LOT of cleaning in the yard and a little in the house. Did I mention A LOT????? Other than that, he was his normal, jovial, bouncy self. Eating like a horse until I made him fast for 20 hours. Yeah... that's kind of like trying to get a cat to stay away from catnip. Sunny Ray tried counter surfing and we had to move the trash can to the top of the washer. He would just sit.... and stare at me while we ate... with those big, beautiful brown eyes. Tell ME I'm not strong willed. ;)

Well, needless to say we had to take in a fecal sample from him... and Justan. I should make mention here that my husband, Harold, did this. He deserves honorable mention, as he does NOT do dog poop. He used one of my kitchen ladles (which we now have to replace - EEEEWWWW!), scooped some up, bagged it and took it to our Vet for testing.

We have Hookworms.  My poor babies. Actually Sunny Ray has them and Justan isn't showing any yet, but we're going to treat them both to be on the safe side. I asked the Vet how he got them, but they said it can be a variety of ways. they can even get them from walking down in grass WEEKS after another dog has passed with them. And apparently our heatworm medication didn't stop them, which I don't understand... ??

Anyways... Sunny Ray is happy. He's back to eating - even if it does include 4 horse pills and liquid dewormer. Just hoping he starts getting better soon!

It's ok Jo and Gizmo, Mommy fell behind too. thank you for asking :)

I'm doing SOOOOO much better now! Had Mommy worried for a few, but she found this great stuff (she calls it D.E.) and puts it in my food every day now. She said it was the best thing since sliced bread - but I don't much like bread. All I know is that I have a lot of energy now!

Sending Sunny Smiles and Loving Paws!

I'm a little behind in my blog reading, but I hope you are feeling so much better now, Sunny Ray.

Mommy said I'm feeling my CHEERIOS, but not sure what that is. But I have LOTS of energy!

Pedro, I think she would eat me like strawberry ice cream. Last time she caught me creating a new hole, she tried to video it. Said she'd never seen dirt fly that fast and high. I must be doing something right :)

Pemon, don't be jealous. Mommy said she could just eat you up too. And Pedro, Nug, Puk, Bentley, Gracie, Jorja, and all my friends on here. If we had a Doodle Farm, you would all come to stay with me and bring your Mommy and Daddy's.

Good morning Gracie!

Loving Sunny Smiles!!

Oh poor Sunny Ray, I hope you feel better soon, I know hook worms can really upset your tummy, be a good boy and take your medicine so you get better quickly!
Bless your Daddy for taking a "sample" to your Dr. And your mommy for cleaning up after your illness.
Get better soon!

Auntie Mitzi, when you catch my twin doodle brother Sunny Ray digging do you just eat him as if he were strawberry ice cream? 

Cousin Pemon, don't be jealous because my Mommy says that you are one of her favourite Doodles ever! Along with me and my twin doodle brother and Nug, Puk, Shadow, Sunny Ray, Gizzy, Sunny, Ginger, Maggie, Baxley, Bentley, Gracie, the other Gracie, Jorja, my girlfriend Eva, Kala, Baileygirl, Howie, Mowgli... I think Mommy has a condominium in her heart to house us all!

Sunny Ray, what are we going to do with you?  I'm so sorry you were sick and hope you get better real soon.  And I want you to know that I'm jealous that your are Dona's favorite Doodle!  LOL  I'm only kidding, Mommy and Daddy give me so much love I don't know if I could take any more.  I hope Justan will be O.K.  And...............I'm sending you a big hug, The Gentle Giant, Pemon.

Thank you Dona! There are days that I know I could just eat him up if he were chocolate. Then there are the days I catch him digging... hahaha!

Glad to hear it was something minor and treated.  No one likes to see our babies sick :(  You have one of my favorite doodles on this site.  He is so damn cute, I don't know how you can stand it!!  hehe  Glad he's doing well :)
