Don't Worry, We'll be Watching You

Our poor Petey - he's sick again.

He had some slight shaking these last few days and 710 thought it best to take him to the vet.  His energy had been good......until he got back from the doc. 

Pete is one lethargic pup with a respiratory infection (not pneumonia again).  He's on antibiotics again, but he condition seemed to deteriorate after he got back from the vet and of course, now the vet is closed until Monday. 

I'd rather not take him to that horrid emergency place, but if we have to, we have to.  What are the alternatives?

He's eating, which is a plus.  He didn't do that last time he was sick.  He's not drinking yet, so we'll watch that.   

His head hangs low when he finally does walk, but he'd rather be up on the couch curled up on a blanket.  

For the record, we didn't put him on the couch, he made his way there on his own. Normally we'd discourage that, but anything he feels would make him comfortable we are game for. 

He's sick and we are both worried sick.  710 thinks Petey seems more ill than he was with pneumonia - I don't  quite think so, but that last time was so scary for us, I'm uncertain and second guess everything.  We both are.  

We are both keeping our eyes peeled and even sleeping with him downstairs.  Our fingers are crossed that he gets better and does it soon.
