It all worked out in the end, right up until 'littlest dog in the world' decided to have a seizure and scare everyone to death. Not to worry, my amazing family was on the job and everyone jumped in on the action to try and save him, even though we didn't know what was happening at the time and thought he might have been choking.
I walked upstairs for 30 seconds until my sister ran up to tell me I needed to come down immediately because my dog was croaking! Eek. My father in law attempted to remove anything lodged in his throat, as did my husband, and my wondrous mom even gave him doggie mouth to mouth!
By the time I was downstairs he was breathing and seemed fine. Another clue that he had a seizure. We probably scared him half to death trying to resuscitate him, but I'm glad to have the support of everyone who knows how much of a doggy lover I am. They weren't about to let him croak without putting up a good fight!
I managed to miss the whole event, short lived but scary as it was, and I will tell you that nothing can clear out a house like an animal emergency. Just in case you ever need to end a party quickly you will know what to do. Just whip out your dog and have it roll over and play dead. Great party trick... yikes!
Did any of you have an eventful evening or afternoon? Any other dog seizures out there? For your sake I certainly hope not! eek.
