Many thanks to everyone who has sent us notes expressing concern about Bailey. I wish I had good news, but she hasn't been doing too well since she came back from the vet on Monday. She's now in kitty ICU, with an IV drip (to get her electrolyte balance back), a feeding tube (hasn't eaten since Sunday), and ongoing enemas to try to clear her colon (poor Bailey has been too weak even to poop).
Bailey, despite feeling sick, remains a princess. When she came home Monday night, we kenneled the puppies so she could have some quiet time by the fireplace. She walked right past her own bed and took over Dempsey's.
Dempsey and Nala have been very patient, if not quite understanding. They're always so happy, no matter what! I think we need to have them tested for drugs. Or, more likely, it's just the way they've been raised, where they can't even imagine having a bad day, since they've had nothing positive experiences their whole lives.
With all the time we've spent running back and forth to the hospital and reading up on renal failure, we haven't spent very much time training or going on walks with the pups. (We always feel guilty about something.) Luckily, they have each other, and are giving each other plenty of exercise. Well, at least Nala is getting exercise. Dempsey just enjoys the ride.
