Blu Seizes the Moment

When I said to Blu last week, seize the moment, I didn't mean it literally. Unfortunately that is exactly what happened. My 12-year old boy had a full on seizure and well, I almost had a heart attack. Talk about scary.

Dr. Matt Miller at Village Vets gave my old guy a thorough exam and ran some tests - thankfully, the results were all considered good. And while we don't know the cause of Blu's seizure, we hope it never happens again!

Here is Blu waiting for his pawsome doc. (We heart him)

And, here is Blu just four days later... with his much younger sister.

Blu clearly bounced back from his seizure quicker than I have.

  5. I really hope that was a one time event. Rest up Blu. You might find this article and diet and seizures helpful.

  6. I'm reading my way through your blog, and if I understand correctly, you foster these dogs? ANyway, it's clear you are loving and nurturing, and anyone who takes the time to love an animal is automatically a good person. It's a rule. I read it somewhere!

  7. Yikes, that's really scary. I'm glad Blu is feeling much more like himself, now. Dogs always seem to recover so much faster than people, don't they?
