Jack may be sick


Jack woke me up at 1:00 a.m. coughing. I got up with him and tried to get him to drink water. He wouldn't. I gave him a homemade frozen treat and he ate that. Scout heard us up and decided to join in on the buffet that insued. After the frozen treat, Jack was still coughing, so I gave him a slice of cheese. Then, some lunchmeat. I really thought that he had a piece of kibble stuck in his throat and I tried to clear it away. I finally went back to bed at 3:00 a.m. because his coughing had calmed down.

He is still coughing this morning. It's not constant, but just a little cough. I'm thinking that it must be more than a piece of kibble in his throat and that really scares me. He's up to date on all his shots and has had the shot for kennel cough.

He is eating fine and even drank some water. He acts like he feels fine. I hope that I am just a worried Mama and it's really not anything.

If things do not improve today, I will make him an appointment to see the vet. I hate to think I am over-reacting, but then again, I don't want to wait too long.
(The picture that I included is not from today. It's just him being silly laying on my bed.)
