Squatting & Perching & Consulting

Desmond may be known for his very excellent napping and snuggling skills, but sometimes the poor guy just can't relax.

And other times, he'll do whatever it takes to get closer to the person with the food. Like climb on things he should stay off of. 

It's all fun and games until someone loses her french fries.

Tomorrow, we're taking Desmond in for an endoscopy consultation (more on that can be found on our Facebook page).

We're entirely unsure if we are going to make him go through the procedure, and I really really hope that the doctor we talk to gives us a real opinion/answer about if it's worth it and not just the safe, covering-his-butt answer that will force us to get the endoscopy.

In the last 18 hours or so, Desmond's been acting really strange. He's more miserable than usual, he's throwing up again and seems generally nauseous. He's grinding his teeth. He's licking his lips. His ears are pulled back. I think his pupils are huge. He seems very tired but unable to get comfortable. And he feels sort of cold. Not actually cold, but he's usually really warm and now he feels kind of tepid. He's pacing and doing a lot of sitting/standing as opposed to his usual horizontal positions. And he is somehow simultaneously looking to be alone and looking to be in your lap. It's all a bit odd. I've googled extensively at this point and keep seeing words like digestion, nausea, neurological, gastrointestinal, pancreatitis. His appetite is pretty much still there but he isn't going bonkers over all things edible. His bathroom habits are unchanged. Weirdest of all? Right before this behavior started, he was at the dog park with Joey, acting completely normal.

I have no clue what's wrong with him and am very glad we're scheduled for a trip to the animal hospital tomorrow (and that I'm working from home today). Poor little doggie dude.
