And it feels so good!


James is back home after a night in the Doggie ER.  His red blood count looks normal and his sunny disposition is back!  :) 


I’m going to lay down with him for an hour or so…. be back!  The Husband and I just wanted to say thank you for your kind messages – it really made us feel better.

    Tell JAmes get well soon from Jac! He’s a cutie!

    Yahoo! That picture just made my night! He’s even cuter with that little green bandage. 🙂

  • Katy October 6, 2009, 8:39 am

    Phew…is it wrong to tell you I got a little weepy when I saw how sick he was?

    I didn’t want to write before, telling you it would be okay, because as pet owners we know it’s often not okay. I think we all accept that there will be sad moments among the love when we bring our babies home for the first time.

    But since he’s feeling better, I will tell you that Lucas and I (as well as a house full of expensive creatures) are thinking of you!

    • caitlin October 6, 2009, 10:05 am

      thank you katy 🙂

  • Sarah @ See Sarah Eat October 6, 2009, 8:42 am

    Aww, sweet James. I’m so glad he’s back home 🙂 Give him lots of hugs and kisses from us!

  • ~Jessica~ October 6, 2009, 8:44 am

    So happy James is home! And that has to be just about the sweetest picture I have ever seen.



  • Kristina October 6, 2009, 8:45 am

    Poor baby…glad to hear that he is home and doing better!

  • Sammie October 6, 2009, 8:49 am

    I am so sorry your baby had such a tough night. I hope that he has a full recovery. Sending you, your husband and fur kids lots of hugs.

  • Reenie October 6, 2009, 8:51 am

    Oh my, I didn’t read this last nite either.

    Praise the Lord he is back home with you. I hope all will be well with him<3

  • chandra October 6, 2009, 8:51 am

    Hooray! I’m so glad he is home and doing okay! It was actually one of the first things I thought of when I woke up this morning (creepy, I know).

    And now I’m going to have that little “reunited and it feels so good” jingle in my head all morning. 🙂

  • Courtney October 6, 2009, 8:52 am

    My golden had a blockage in his stomach a few years ago and the night I spent with him while he was sick before we went to the emergency ER was the worst experience of my life. I can only imagine how it will be once I have kids because I thought I would die seeing the pain in his eyes!! I hope your pup is doing better…I’m going to give my doggies a little extra love today in honor of James!

    Awh man, that’s so rough when things happen to your puppies! It’s seriously just like a child. I’m happy that everything went well!

  • Island Girl Eats October 6, 2009, 9:17 am

    I am so glad to hear that he is doing better and back home with you. There is nothing more stressful then when a pet is not well – they can’t tell you whats wrong.

    Welcome home James!

  • Jojo October 6, 2009, 9:22 am

    I’m SO HAPPY he is home!! Any news about a sick dog is just devastating to hear.

    welcome home james! hope you feel better!

  • Therese October 6, 2009, 9:33 am

    OMG that’s soooo scary! Daisy went under the knife yesterday (just to get spayed) and I was worried out of my mind so I can’t imagine how you felt. Glad he’s doing better.

    Check out her sad little cone though…

  • Jolene ( October 6, 2009, 9:33 am

  • Sue October 6, 2009, 2:03 pm

    I am so happy for you that he is OK – I know what its like to have a pet seriously ill and it’s agony so I felt your pain. What a wonderfully touching picture of the two of you, bless both your hearts xxx
