Molly is eating the special Science Diet food for animals with upset tummies. We had a better night. She woke me just before 5 asking to go outside, and I could hear her heaving, something she does when her stomach is empty. She would not come inside, so I went outside with a little of the special food in her dish. And I stood there, holding an umbrella over the two of us while she ate.
She is now enjoying second breakfast, after suffering the indignity of having a pill placed in the back of her throat.
P.S. I am sick, too. I’m not sure standing in the rain at 5 a.m. is the best thing for a person with a serious head cold. I am looking forward to a day on the couch.
At least I know how to swallow my own pills.
