Levi and his teddy.
Goodie two shoes---my new earth brother---finally did something to upset our adoptive mother. Or I should say it's what Levi didn't do that upset her. He didn't pee for twelve hours today and she was thinking he was getting sick from the vaccinations he got yesterday or from being outside last night in the frosty cold when she was trying to get him to pee before bedtime. Worry wart that she is, she called the veterinarian's office and they said, "No, the vaccinations shouldn't cause that to happen." And, "Are you sure you he didn't pee when you weren't looking?" (I was watching, too, and the little guy really didn't pee over night or in the morning.) "Is he acting listless?" "Is he eating?"
"He's acting the same way he has since we adopted him," Mom replied, "and he's eating well," to which the vet's receptionist advised Mom to call back if anything changes.
After hanging up the phone, Mom started worrying that her pop-can-turned-rattle with the pennies inside scared Levi TOO much when she'd caught him squatting where he shouldn't be squatting. It was the last time he'd tried to pee---before the twelve hour dry stretch---and she'd startled him so bad he'd stopped mid stream.
Finally, mom decided to give Levi some filtered water instead of the tap water in his dish and he drank like he'd been out on the desert for a week and promptly peed all over the kitchen floor five minutes later. Mom was so happy that she didn't even ball herself out for missing out on the action until it was too late to rattle the can or scowl him.
It's a good thing Levi is a good puppy and nothing like the trouble bubble that I was at his age. The veterinarian's phone would be ringing off the hook. ©
