Attention Spaghetti's Friends

Ooops, I meant to say, Linguini's friends. This past weekend, our spotted girl, Linguini, the 11.5 year old dalmatian mix, became severely ill--notice it was the weekend again. She developed incontinence of . . . oh well, all orifices.
First thing Monday morning, we took her to the dog vet.  After a thorough check up, including a liver panel to make sure that the Rimadyl she's on long term did not cause any damage, Linguini was pronounced quite healthy (considering her advanced dog arthritis). She was prescribed  stronger pain meds to be taken sparingly ONLY as needed. She was also prescribed an anti-inflamatory drug to keep her from having dog diarrhea. She was already on DES for her incontinence, but her dosage was increased.
We're still waiting for the culture, but for now the dog vet was pretty clear:

Diagnosis
DRAMA QUEEN

The Happy End

We thinks that since she is 11.5 years old, she can be a Drama Queen. Way to keep them on their toes Linguini. Sniffs, The HoundDogs

I was afwaid of the stuff the dogtow might say, but a diagnosis of Dwama Queen sounds good to me
I hope the new doses of meds help Linguini. I think at that age you can sometime have the wight to be a dwama queen

How did we miss this yesterday? We can't have Linguini feeling any discomfort. She and Phantom must have been in cahoots as he was quite the ill boy this weekend too:( It's OK to be a Drama Queen, but don't scare all of us.
