Piddle Update

Well everyone, I thought my piddling excitement was due to the wonderful and generous sponsorship for Blogathon, but it turns out it was something else.

I haven’t really felt myself lately, and I thought it was due to all of the hard work and napping I’ve been putting in preparing for Blogathon. Last night I REALLY had to go to the bathroom around midnight, so I told the human man that I had to go, he was already up. He took me out.

Around 2am I had to go out again, so I woke the human woman up. Then AGAIN about an hour later. The human woman was so tired, she actually opened the door without shutting off the alarm, so that’s always fun with the alarm goes off. She apparently didn’t see that I was obvious in pee distress, and when I came back in, she shoved a pepto-bismol tablet down my throat, thinking I was having a poo emergency. The next time she realized what was going on (FINALLY) and she sat out there with me while I peed and peed and peed, and frankly that’s not fun at all.

In the morning, the put me in my harness and took me to the vet place that I go to when the other vet place isn’t open. I greeted them by peeing on their rug... it was there, I had to go, I have to pee on something.

The human worker handed the human woman a little container, and I thought for sure
that I was going to get a snack of some sort, instead when I asked to go out and pee again, the human woman rudely shoved it under me WHILE I WAS PEEING! That’s just plain rude!

I finally got to go into a room and met another human woman who listened to my heart, took my temperature (normal), and then rudely squeezed my bladder. I screamed. Hey, that hurt, and humans shouldn’t go around squeezing dog bladders.

After a lot of waiting around, apparently they were in the back room playing with my pee, the human woman came in and gave my human woman a big bottle of pills, and then we went home. Apparently I have to take these pills once a day for 2 weeks, and then I have to go to my regular vet and make sure everything is gone. The pills are “chewable”, yeah, right, those things are NASTY, so I refused to eat them. The human woman tried to coat them with peanut butter, so I licked that off and spit out the pill. Then the human man tried to coat them in bacon goodies... so I licked that off and spit out the pill. Finally the human woman had enough (having not slept all night) and she broke them up and shoved them down my throat. I’m hoping that Sasha was able to convince her to go buy some of that tasty liverwurst that she gets every night. She said that it tastes wonderful and that I won’t mind having the pill in there. The human woman did leave and go to the store, so I’m hoping Sasha was able to convince her to get some of that.

While the human woman was gone, something happened to my air conditioning vent. I was laying on it, all happy and feeling sickly and pathetic, when it stopped blowing cold air. I don’t know why this happened, and I went in to complain to the human man. He came out and realized that half of the house had power, but the other half didn’t have power. Apparently this problem is only affecting my house and the neighbor’s house. I’m sure something like that will be put right on the top of the list of repairs for the human electric company. I know that the human woman speaks very fondly of the human electric company because every time she gets the bill for the electricity, she has a religious experience. When she got home from the store, she praised them again.

So, here I am, sickly, no cold air from my vent, human woman ranting, and the gimpies being a pain because they want to play, but I don’t.

The good news is that I don’t feel like going to pee every 5 minutes anymore, and I should be healthy and ready to blog on the 28th.

(Its not suppose to burn when I do that, is it?)

I hope you are better soon. That's a heart wrenching story about your air conditioner though. I think your humans should take you to one of those cooling centers or something. It's too hot for huskies!!

Sitka and Tia's BLAWG! said...

Oh poor Meeshka! I am so sorry that you are having some pee issues! I know that medi will help, you just can't be stubborn about taking the pills! I am cracking up over the cartoon! And what a double whamy for losing power today too! And yes, my dad has done the "forget to turn off the alarm at a 2 a.m. pee" trick. Mom was not amused, nor was I!


The Brat Pack said...

Those peeing issues suck. I just finished three weeks of pills for it but I'm still having issues.

They should take you to a hotel till the ac works again. We're not made for the heat, geez.


Roxie, Sammy and Andy said...

Oh, no! Mom says she feel just like you if her AC went out. We are pretty sure we wouldn't like it either but we do spend a lot of time soaking up the sun to keep our red coats red ... is that how it works?

We hope you feel better soon!

Roxie, Sammy & Andy

Turbo the Sibe said...

I'm sorry you are going through both those problems!

Would it help if I came over and yelled at someone and stomped my foot?

Hana said...

Sorry to hear about the pee issue. That's no fun according to my Mom.

You had us cracking up when you said "that will be put right on the top of the list of repairs for the human electric company"!!!! Hahahaha!

Hope you're feeling better and getting cooler soon. It's too hot to be without the cold air vent

Michelle said...

Oh, poor Meeshka. Peeing problems are no fun. Love the cartoon though; husky ears can say so much without ever making a sound.

We've had the "power half out" problem at our house too. When it happened, the AC was fine, but the computer/internet were dead. Tough call which is harder to cope with.

JustMeCopper said...

My older sister had pee issues often. Only she peed rocks. She told me they hurt. For that she got to eat special food from a can. I never get food from a can. I sure hope you get better.... and the AC comes on too.

Holly said...

Wow Meeshka, that is so horrible! I sure hope you are feeling better very soon. On the other hand, you can really milk this to get lots and lots of attention (like Sam did) and maybe some yummy treats!

Bummer about the a/c vent! Maybe you can go to the basement where it is a bit cooler. That's what I do. I sure hope it comes back on soon!


Ruby Bleu said...

Hi Meeska,
My name is Ruby, nice to meet you. I'm pals with Sitka & the A04. I hope you are feeling better...sounds like you had a very stressful night! It's good news that you will be in top form for the blogathon. That's really cool...I'm going to go sponsor you!!! Good Luck!

Lots of Licks, Ruby

Dear Meeshka,
we're really sorry to hear about your pee problem. Hopefully those pills will have you feeling great in no time. With the blog-a-thon coming up, you don't want to stop for potty breaks every 15 minutes! Good luck with the air-conditioning issue, My humans said that we are at the mercy of the electric power lords when it comes to fixing what's broken. I guess they have religious experiences with the electric company, too.


Please pray for our Sherman today.

Mud Monster & DWB said...

Awwww Meeska We're sorry you are having pee promblems. :-( Hopefully those nasty pills will help you get back to yourself soon. When you feel better torture that evil human woman for shoving those pills down your throat. Paws crossed that Sasha got her to get you those treats!

Love and licks,
Quincy & Tristin

I nominated you for an award! Stop over at my blog for details!
