Back from Camping With Good Times and Some Not So Good Times!
I always have a touch of anxiety when we go camping. I always have a worry that maybe Willow will have a bout of diarrhea and not feel well as she has done every so often. Well, it wasn't her that I should have worried about. It was me! Me with the cast iron stomach. I had two days with the worst case of the runs that I have ever had. I would have given a small fortune for a bottle of Pepto Bismol! Don't know what caused it but after a couple of days I was fine. Never did affect my husband and we hate the same foods. I'm glad it was me and not Willow!
However, Willow had her own mishap. She stepped on a bee, poor baby! She was so pitiful for a few hours. I just felt so bad. I really didn't know what to do. I didn't have any Benadryl, plus I don't know the dosage for dogs. I'm going to have to get instructions from our vet for future reference. I tried putting ice on it but she didn't want anything to do with that. She got stung in the afternoon and by evening she was fine and running around like normal. We sure had a pity party for a few hours though!
She's a great camping dog and loves being outside and going on walks. Loves the attention she receives. Of course everyone thinks she is a poodle mix or a shih tzu.
