Our instructions are to feed him every 2 hours from the new food to see if he can tolerate about 1/4 can. Since he's refusing that we tried his old kibble, but he will only eat it if we hand feed him. Since his labs are normal, we will be getting an ultrasound for him tomorrow and make sure there is not something brewing we need to address. Toby (and we) can use your good thoughts, prayers and wishes as this is not normal for him at all. Our chow hound is refusing food. This all happened on the 3rd anniversary of our Barkley's emergency splenectomy and hemangio diagnosis too. I'm trying very hard not to imagine the worst, history repeating itself.

Yogi continues to give us such joy and provide us with so many laughs. He is even being more mellow around Toby today, so he senses his big brother is off as well.
I am so sorry that Toby is having eating issues again and hope against hope that he's just being picky. All fingers, toes and paws crossed for Toby - I'm glad you were able to have the ultrasound scheduled so quickly.

Thanks everyone for your good thoughts and wishes. His US is at 11:30 but they asked me to be there by 10:30 in case they can get us in earlier. My Kindle is charged and ready. I'm staying with him for the procedure- I want to know anything they see. Toby had some issues in the past that required ultrasounds and he's a veteran in the V cushion- usually falls asleep!

He ate from our hands (his old kibble, not the new canned stuff), but threw up later so we are not feeding him until after the US tomorrow. He also had his evening poop, which was unusual. It was solid (yay), with a crust to it on the outside of a darker color than normal and it had a paisley pattern to it as if it had been in the colon awhile and was contracted back and forth. We suspect he has a lingering colitis issue, despite the fact we've been treating him for this for over 2 weeks.

Despite his issues, he insisted on joining Yogi for his evening ball chase, even though he tired out almost immediately. Yogi really enjoys it, but still doesn't have the fetch concept down. To Yogi, just grabbing a ball from the box I store them in and doing two or three laps down our bridge and back is so much fun- he doesn't need for us to throw it for him. He will chase them if we throw,then he gets confused as to which ball he should keep in his mouth!

We tried his puppy seat belt harness on tonight for the first time because he is too impatient now in his Sherpa bag. The harness is just darling, but slightly big for him. I think he needs a week to grow into it! He wore it tonight for an hour to get used to it!

He also got a reminder of his Pennsylvania homeland this morning when we had a surprise snow storm (actually thunder snow)! He was so happy and it totally distracted him from doing his business in his potty plateau. It was more fun to eat snowflakes and just bask in the stuff while Mom and Dad froze waiting for him! There was one loud and long thunderclap as we were outside that got his attention, but it didn't frighten him thank goodness!

I actually think Toby prefers a bare belly. He's been getting January/Feb ultrasounds for a couple of years now to monitor some lymph nodes and at one time a node on his spleen, so we just tell him spring is coming and it's his new spring look! I just hope spring gets here soon 'cause I'm freezing my patootee outside potty training Yogi this winter. Last winter? No problem, but this year....brrrrrrrrrrrrrr!

Praying for sweet Toby, hope these shadow clouds move away very soon so you can enjoy your two boys to the fullest. Hugs.
