NPO

The dogs have been sick again lately. There's been lots of poop. We've become and expert poop-cleaning team. Stephan got sick of bringing work home with him so he took the dogs to the vet today. Immediately they told him that Besa is overweight. No problem, but then here's the other thing:

The vet thinks that the dogs have pancreatitis. Her solution is a form of a cleanse. They get nothing by mouth for 24 hours, then only water for the following 24 hours, 1/2 their normal food the 3rd day, and regular food on the 4th day.

It hasn't even been one day and already Besa is laying on the floor with her paws around the food bowl. They are so sad.

As any of us would be.
