I almost became onedogmom this weekend when my sweet little Ginger ate a leaf from an oleander plant at my apt. complex. She has been at the vets office since yesterday morning and will probably have to stay at least another day. They have run lots of tests and it looks like she'll be ok but when I visited her yesterday she sure didn't look ok. I'm not even sure she knew I was there. Oleander is one of the most deadly plants for dogs and is often fatal. She threw up the leaf which may have saved her life.

Friday 10/21: Ginger came home Wednesday night. I stayed home yesterday to make sure she was ok. So far so good. This morning she was back to her old self. She has 3 medications she has to take 1 hour apart so we started at 5 am with the first, then one at 6 and the last at 7. The bill from my vet was over $1300 but well worth it. So glad I sold my house and have some money from that to cover dog emergencies.

I was all set to get back into our walking routine this weekend but we had a major invasion of mosquitos. The worst I've ever seen.
