October 31 — November 6 — Tara’s Grief/Symptoms

It’s been 10 days since Maggie died. Tara is doing amazingly well and adjusting to being an “only child” much better than I ever imagined. She has been quiet all week and still has those moments where she looks so sad. With each passing day they become fewer and fewer. She is so well behaved on leash […]

October 29 — 30 — Tara’s Grief/Symptoms

Tara is doing amazingly well. She’s beginning to settle into her life without Maggie. She definitely misses Maggie and at times looks lost. She’ll walk into the room and sit in the doorway and just look around with a ‘what am I doing here?’ look about her. Thank God she’s not looking for Maggie as she knows […]

October 28 — Tara’s Symptoms

Will continue blogging about what is happening for Tara as we continue on this journey of grieving and healing the loss of Maggie. Tara ate dinner last night — reheated scrambled eggs and cheese, reheated stew and lightly sauted steak. Was so pleased to have her eat. Think Debbie’s threat to eat Tara’s food helped […]

October 27 — Pet Illness Symptoms

Maggie and Tara were pretty quiet all through the night. Maggie started to show signs of being in pain about 4:45 a.m. so gave her some Tremedal and she settled down again within 15 minutes. Started to show signs of pain again at 8:30 so gave her a dose of Asa Foetida 200 ch and […]

October 26 — Pet Illness Symptoms

Tara had diahrea last night and needed to go out at 1:00 a.m. and 3:00 a.m. Gave her some argentum nitricum at 1:00 a.m. Gave Maggie some Tremedal at 3:00 a.m. to get through the rest of the night and maybe be OK for breakfast in the morning. Maggie stayed downstairs from 3:00 a.m. on. […]

October 25 — Pet Illness Symptoms

Maggie had to go out at 1:45 a.m. last night and was pretty restless for the rest of the night — shifting from side to side and biting at her leg. Was going to give her Arsenicum in the middle of the night but I can’t find it anywhere. Looked in the middle of the […]

October 24 — Pet Illness Symptoms

Maggie and Tara slept with me last night. Gave Maggie a Tremedal at 11:45 p.m. to help her get through the night. She wanted out at 1:30 a.m. — not sure why…whether to chase something or because she still had some diarhrea. Of course she went right back to sleep! I on the other hand […]

October 23 — Pet Illness Symptoms

Maggie and Tara slept with me all night — started taking Maggie upstairs a few nights ago. Maggie had to go outside for bowel movements at 1:30 a.m. and at 3:30 a.m. It begins with her sitting up on the bed and panting and staring at me until I do something. Maggie will go down the […]

October 22 — Pet Illness Symptoms

Maggie was in pain, shifting from side to side and moaned once, so gave her Tremedal at 1:30. A.’s instructions were to wait 30 minutes and give her Rhus Toxicodendron 200 ch (if I was still awake) but Maggie settled within 20 minutes and slept was really quiet for at least the next couple of hours so I […]

October 21 — Pet Illness Symptoms

Maggie slept downstairs all night. Woke up a few times, wondering if I should go down and check on her — knew that would wake Tara up and then she’d want to go outside and then Maggie would want to go outside….decided to ‘let sleeping dogs lie’ as my Dad used to say. Had a […]
