Just over a month ago, we adopted Penelope. She's a five-year-old cocker-retriever, and just a match made in heaven. Her pint size fits into our little home, our sassy tortie approves of her temperament, and she pitter-pats behind us everywhere. Chris and I have had a ball picking out everything from shampoo to specialty canine frozen treats. It hasn't taken long for little Penny to completely steal our hearts.

Sunday morning we woke to something frightful. Vomit & accidents were everywhere. Penny was quivering. Scared half to death, we got her into the vet hospital on campus.

It may be Addison's. It may be pancreatitis. The blood tests are being evaluated, and she's spending her second night in the hospital (but I bring her home tomorrow!). It may not be as bad as we think, but we're all quite blue around here. 


  1. Oh, I hope she'll be okay! Fingers crossed for a quick recovery. Keep us posted!

    1. Aw thank you so much! We're very nervous, but I'm trying to stay optimistic. I'll give the update for sure.
