Unfortunantely, Darcy's luck sucks.

Things were going great once we got her away from rice, only to have an allergy to oats whip around and smack us in the face. Since I'd been feeding the dogs oatmeal and yogurt, it meant she'd eaten a decent amount and, to top it off, the lotion we slathered her in to make her feel better was oatmeal based. So, calling a different vet, we've upped her Benadryl dose but if she's not better by tomorrow morning, screw finances, she's going in.

In all of this, though, I had to capture a moment of complete sweetness between the puppies. Bebo, who is also recovering from his own illness and feeling utterly abandoned by the constant attention we're giving Darcy, doing his very best to take care of his sick sister. She's fresh out of a bath, but it was so cold in the house she needed a hat and blanket to stay warm while she dried.

 

Sadly, she's much worse off than she looks in this picture. She has bumps all over and has scratched herself raw in some places. I hate seeing her like this.
