Jack is having a really bad day today. The vertigo seems worse than ever and from what I've read he should be improving. He was so dizzy today that he wouldn't even go out. Anthony took him out and the poor pooch couldn't even hold his squat to poop! I cried and cried! We planned to go to Greensboro today shopping since we didn't make it yesterday and I couldn't stand the thought of Jack being alone. He couldn't jump up on his favorite chair and he could barely walk. So, I called my Dad who said he would be right out after he ate breakfast to stay with Jack while we went shopping.
Jack is so pitiful. He likes to sit on my lap in the recliner and couldn't even jump on me when we got home. He just moped then. I had Anthony help him up onto my lap. Our wood floors are not helping. He seems to do a bit better in the bedroom where we have carpet.
I felt so bad for the baby today when he ran to get away from his ear drops he came and sat beside me so I could protect him from the evil ear drops and he couldn't even sit straight. If you've seen his pics on my page you know he has a very regal and stately manner. He sits tall and pretty and he couldn't.
I'm calling the vet again in the morning to see if we should be more concerned. Naturally I am concerned and probably over concerned, but can't imagine how he must feel when his world is all topsy turvey. I also got into the unfairs of life too. Here is this sweet animal, a dog who never caused harm, a loving devoted pet, and he has to suffer? Why?
I know there is no answer to that one, but it hurts to see my baby suffer. It hurts to suffer. I'm just so down this week. I do hope it all balances out in the end. I'll keep you informed on my precious pooch. I love him so much!
