365 Photo Project - Day 24

Taken: January 24, 2010, approx. 1:30 p.m.
Location: Healdsburg, CA

This picture makes me a little sad because it caught my pug Louie in the process of coughing. Since an operation he had in December, he's been coughing/gagging constantly. It's awfully heartbreaking to see and hear. We've been trying to isolate the problem for weeks and the answers we've gotten are not the ones we want to hear. Turns out Louie's got a nasty bug in his lungs and it's highly resistant to most antibiotics. If we don't find something that works soon, there's a good chance it will turn into pneumonia. And in his condition and at his age, that could very well be the end of him.

If there's anything that Louie has proved over the time we've had him, it's that he's tough. I expect him to get through this but I wouldn't be honest with myself if I didn't face the prospect that he might very well be in a fight for his life. So, that's why today it's all about Louie.

I had off to Los Angeles for a week. No pugs or Russian River shots for a few days. Ha.

Taken with my K100D using the internal flash. Edited, as usual, in Photoshop.

I'm hoping Louie pulls through this!! I can imagine how frustrating it is to see him go through this. Just know you both are doing everything for him. Olive(my furkid) sends him a Pug kiss to help him feel better.

Poor Louie, I hope they find the right meds soon!
