I have one miserable little chihuahua on my hands:


He has a terrible, honking, body-racking cough that ends in a gag and it's making us all miserable. He and I have been to the animal emergency room and ($345 later - ook!) they think it's a virus. Of course I knitted in the waiting room. Amazing how it always helps, somehow.

The cough could also be a sign of a collapsing trachea, a condition that is not uncommon among chihuahuas but one that can be tricky to treat. We're keeping our fingers crossed. He has some medicine to take and we'll be keeping his collar off for a bit.

I love this little guy. I think a new sweater will make him feel better; he does love to be warm. I found a cute aran pattern that I hope to get started on soon.

Not sure why I'm posting this, exactly, just needed to process, I guess.... Posted by Picasa
