Dog Update

The Yellow Dog made it though her night at the vet uneventfully.  Since her return home yesterday morning, she appears just fine.  

It appears that she has developed either some kind of epilepsy or perhaps a brain tumor.  Neither are very treatable at the cause level - the only thing we can treat are the seizures.  The cut off for starting treatment is two seizure episodes within six weeks.

We'll keep watch, but in the meantime it was really scary.  I worry now about duck hunting - if she had a seizure while swimming it would kill her - but I guess that is way down the line.

Ugh.  There's nothing better than a yellow dog.  And nothing worse than when they get sick.
