    Glad to hear that blockage passed. Hope he continues to recover. Ellie was in tough shape for almost five days. Started getting sick on Saturday, couldn't get her in to vet till Monday, and then Tuesday night almost lost her. She couldn't stand up. Got her to on call vet and she started to snap out of it in the office. By Wednesday afternoon Ellie was pretty much back to normal. Not a lot they could do but feed her antibiotics and hope she took care of it herself.

    Keep us posted.

    Sorry to hear that. I almost lost Ellie to pancreatitis/colitis last summer. That was scary! She's doing great now. Wouldn't touch the fancy canned dog food the vet prescribed for her afterwards (and this dog will eat ANYTHING). I put her on the low fat (well, lower fat) Iams dry stuff (in the blue bag) and she seems to thrive. Puppy eats it too. I also have probiotic supplement to sprinkle on her food but often forget about it. I will be much more careful in the spring when snow clears out. Figure she picked up the bacteria digging in the yard. I understand seashores are very bad for it too. Were you hunting salt flats?

    Hope that blockage is nothing serious. Keep me posted. I'll be thinking of you.

    Well, not too sporty of late. He is suffering from laryngeal paralysis and the onset of neurological deterioration manifesting is loss of muscle in the hind end. He does ok when it’s cooler than 70F. He can still go a mile and a half when it’s cooler. It takes him a while to cool down due to the obstructed breathing. He pointed and flushed 4 grouse last week in E. WA! So he still has the “want to”! I doubt we’ll do the September early goose since it’s usually pretty warm. Sadly, I think this will be his last season in the field if he makes it that long. The little girl is in her prime at 7 yo. Happy Trails

    I once had a very good short-haired pointer that came down with epilepsy, and had an occasional grand mal seizure while hunting in the field.
    For reasons I won't go into here, I found it necessary one day to euthanize him there in one of our pheasant covers in the back field.
    Now, whenever I look at that shotgun, all I remember is that it was the gun I used to put my buddy Schuyler to sleep.
    Your memorial brought back sad memories for me.
