    Tully's very sick. She's refusing to eat and her breathing is laboured. Today she was outside standing near the fence and not reacting to me, not registering I was there.

    I really hope this is another bout of IBD but her health has been declining quite a bit this year.

    A lot of her decline has to do with an error that was made with her food, that meant she was being fed an allergen for the last 18mths (long story). I'm worried it has all been too much. I thought she was starting to rally on a new home cooked diet. But for some reason she's taken a turn.

    She hasn't been able to get heartworm or flea/tick treatment or kennel cough vaccs anymore because of her IBD, but it's winter and with lockdown I think the chances of catching any of those is low.

    Oh, Caro, I am so very sorry that Tully is ill. Her reactions sound worrying indeed.
    She is such a dear and has been with you through the best of times and supported you through the worst as well. I certainly hope it is something she can recover from.
    My prayers and virtual hugs being sent your way...
    Keep us posted...

    poor girl..and poor you.
    I know I dread when Gavin starts to decline.
    And the COVID crisis only makes it worse :(

    I hope she rebounds and you have more time with her

    hugs and kisses from me and Gavin
