Warning, this is another gross one. Rio has been having diarrhea for the past 3 days. In general, she has been kind enough to do it on piles of dirty clothes in the laundry room when we are not here to let her out. But she also went a few times on the new carpet in the basement. I have never been happier in my life that we chose chocolate brown for the color of the carpet.
Bryan found fresh blood (as in, not digested blood) in one of her “samples” as well. We have a call into the vet, but we are really hopeful that it is from the rich, soft, food she had all this week to help her stitches heal… and not a sign of the end.
Just in case, we have brought some studio lights home from work and plan to take a family portrait with Rio and Finn in front of the Christmas tree this evening.
