I've posted a couple times about Periwinkle, my mom's ultra-shy puppy. My mom just called me and told me that Peri is very sick and in the hospital. She had been throwing up the past couple of days so my mom took her to the vet today and then brought her home, and then she threw up again through her mouth and nose and started choking and passed out. My mom took her back to the vet and now she is there with an IV. My mom talked to the vet later on the phone and asked if Peri was upset and crying and they said she was too sick to even do that. They are going to run tests tomorrow and try to figure out what is wrong with her; my mom said something about there being some kind of blockage.

The really, really awful thing about this is that my mom's first Boston, Petunia, was hit by a truck and killed earlier this year. My mom was absolutely devestated and it was months before she could even entertain the idea of getting another dog. And then she got Periwinkle, and now this has happened. She is all upset and crying and I don't know what to say to her.

I just wanted to post because I knew you all would understand. Please keep Peri and my mom in your thoughts.
I am feeling: worriedworried

I know how hard it is to loose a best friend, we had to put our first bosten terrier to sleep after finding out he had kidney disease ~ there was nothing we could do for him. My mom still cries when she talks about him. If something like that ever happens to Spikey she would just be crushed. I pray that everything goes well for periwinkle And strength for your mom to get trough this.
