Oh, you asked me why I saved you. I tried to carry you off, and the next day, you gave me water, and a little pity.

Thank you all for the positive karma sent Mathilda's way. The vet took off the patch and gave her a subcutaneous electrolyte injection to hydrate her. The immediate effect was that she looked like a doggy version of Quasimodo until a little later when her body absord the liquid.

The result was pretty amazing. Immediately upon getting home she ran around the yard and woofed down tons of dogfood and water. I think it's fair to say she's pretty much out of the woods.

Yay! Go Mathilda! Where you live, out of the woods is a figurative term I think.

All praise Zeus!

Heh.

A healthy appetite is always a good sign. Now, go for a walk.

Most excellent news! Still, I think you should fetch her the paper for a few weeks.

Now I'm contemplating forsaking atheism and becoming an acolyte of Zeus.
