For the first time in SIX LONG DAYS, my other dog has finally started to eat again. Since Nikita died, Sheba has stopped eating. She wouldn't go near her food. She just ate dog treats here and there and drank her water.
About five minutes ago, Husband and I decided to try something different. We changed her food to Science Diet J/D. She also has arthritis but it is very minimal and we would like to keep it that way. We put her food in a different bowl and put it upstairs versus downstairs in the room that she shared with Nikita.
What a difference!
I just went over to praise her for eating and pet her on the back. She yelled at me. Girl doesn't like it when you mess with her food ~ especially when she hasn't eaten in six days!
My Sheba girl is back! We've been spending a lot of time with her, letting her sleep in our bedroom, taking her for rides in the car when we run errands, things like that. She slowly started to come out of her depression but this is just awesome.
This is a photo I took of Sheba and Nikita last week. Sheba is the one smiling at me.
I just gave her another cup of food and she's playing hockey with it!! SUCCESS!!
BTW...wish me luck as we start our fucking garage sale tomorrow. THREE DAYS of this shit. I am more of a "let's donate to the Goodwill" kind of gal but Husband thought joining the neighborhood garage sale would be a good idea. I seriously hate garage sales.
